Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

Today’s episode is all about learning how to find joy again after drastic changes in midlife. Michele Wirth, someone who lost her travel business during the pandemic. As you can imagine, this was exceptionally stressful and was a lot to cope with.

Michele was a stay-at-home mom for years; when her kids went to high school, she followed her passion for travel and became an entrepreneur in the travel industry. When Covid came, travel stopped. Michele’s entire world was in a paralyzing spin!  Covid had a huge impact on her life, professionally and personally. The fear was real.

She learned so much about herself during this difficult phase of life. She also reached out for help and found this podcast and connected with the positive messages for how to improve your life immediately.

Michele credits her experience in the Women in the Middle Community during Covid for not only saving her mental health but ultimately for leading to an Attention Deficit Disorder diagnosis at age 54 and an entirely new perspective for the rest of her life moving forward!

Enjoy this episode!
