Sheri Allain: How to Become a Midlife Entrepreneur

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

After marketing top brands like Coca-Cola, Ford, and Unilever, Sheri started her 1st business as a new mom on maternity leave. She later bootstrapped her 2nd business into 6-figures while freelancing and raising two young kids. She regularly teaches Marketing & Sales for the City of Toronto and has helped 400+ entrepreneurs brand, launch and grow their startups.

Sheri and I discuss the amazing midlife entrepreneur boom we've both witnessed in recent years and our own experiences as female business owners in midlife.

Specifically, we talk about:

  the estrogen connection, 
  confidence in midlife,
  what holds women back from starting a business,
  how entrepreneurship can actually be easier than “working for the man”, and
  the 5 things you need to nail for entrepreneurial success.

If you’ve been dreaming of being your own boss, start here!

Bonita Grobbelaar – The Role of Vulnerability in Preventing Burnout

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Bonita Grobbelaar is a coach and CEO of Global Healthy Relationships, where she helps busy women find balance and success in their own lives and relationships.

In this episode, Bonita and I dig into one of the main reasons why we find ourselves in burnout: we don’t ask for enough help.

We discuss the perfectionism standard and how it keeps women stuck, why women resist asking for help, why vulnerability is a superpower (not a weakness!), and the critical role vulnerability plays in preventing burnout and creating meaningful connections at work, home, and in romantic relationships.
