Ep.109 Liberte Free to Be

Why it really can be a

Magnificent Midlife


Rachel Lankester












Rachel Lankester is no stranger to the Liberte Free to Be, in fact this is her second visit since our first interview back on Ep.20 in 2019 but she's been a busy woman since then so I couldn't wait for round 2! 

Rachel is the founder of Magnificent Midlife, an online hub inspiring woman in midlife and beyond. Magnificent Midlife exists to challenge negative stereotypes of older women, change perceptions, and transform midlife and beyond into a time of excitement and fulfilment.

Like me Rachel is passionate about celebrating, championing and empowering women in midlife and beyond and her Magnificent Midlife Podcast does just that. She can also add author to her list of her credentials after recently publishing Magnificent Midlife: Transform Your Middle Years, Menopause and Beyond  which I found thought provoking and left me feeling even more positive about my own next chapter.

Subjects covered-

-Going through early menopause

-Where the inspiration came from to start Magnificent Midlife

-Why it's important we challenge the outdated stereo types of midlife women

-Midlife transformations

-Why Rachel believes we need to hear more positive stories around the menopause

-Different attitudes to ageing across the world

-What we can learn from whales!

-Writing her first book, the highs and the lows

-Whats next?

Whilst it is undeniable that lots of women really struggle with the physical and mental impact of the menopasue we should also include the positive side to this stage of life because it's definitely not all doom and gloom. I want to hear more stories from post-menopausal women so I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
