Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast
Walking more in midlife is an exceptionally beneficial thing to do. Our guest today, Joyce Shulman of 99 Walks. She explains why walking can be great for your mind, mood, and body.
Joyce Shulman is founder and CEO of the walking app 99 Walks and Macaroni Kid, which reaches millions of moms each month with hyper-local and national e-newsletters and websites, social media content, video, and her Weekly Walk podcast.
Having created a one-of-a-kind digital platform, she connects families to the wonders of their own communities and inspires women to chase their dreams and crush their goals.
Her most recent endeavor and the reason I was so excited to have her on as a guest, is 99 Walks, which has been featured in Parade, Woman’s Day, InTouch, Mothering Magazine, The Today Show, and more! Joyce is on a mission to combat loneliness and improve fitness through the simple act of encouraging moms to walk together.
A self-confessed idea junkie, in 1998, Joyce made a huge career change. She abandoned law firm life to liberate her entrepreneurial spirit and focus on the things that are most important to her: family, community, and empowering women to chase their dreams.
It’s so great when there’s clear direction for what you can do for your health in midlife. Walking more is a slam dunk! With our guest today, you just KNOW there’s a good midlife story there, so let’s dive in!
