Description

On these week's episode, we discuss the messaging of 1980s fashion magazines that still inform many of our midlife beliefs. These include:



  • It's most important to be skinny

  • You also need great hair and good skin

  • The world is scary for women

  • You need to change to meet the beauty standard

  • Career success is linked to attractiveness

  • Men have fragile egos and will cheat if threatened

  • Bitchy women succeed at work

  • Other women are competition for work and men


Learn how to finally shed these toxic stories and write a new more powerful story in midlife. If you grew up with these magazines scattered all over your bedroom, you will not want to miss this episode.
