Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

My guest this week is a successful entrepreneur has gone from healing to reinvention; in fact, she’s someone who has reinvented herself many times and comes from a place of surviving to thrive.

Jayne Dearborn shares her journey of healing and rediscovering herself mid-life in hopes of giving support and encouragement.

Specifically,  Jayne has launched two companies, JayneMax soulfully luxurious handbags, and Portland Electric Boat Company, and co-founded a non-profit, Blue Butterfly Campaign, whose mission is to raise and donate funds for childhood leukemia research, something that has affected her family personally.

Jayne has also co-led groups of bereaved parents for 6 years providing support and a safe place to heal to over 150 families at the Dougy Center for grieving children and their families.

Her latest endeavor is a women’s healing/Wellness retreat called Sacra Blu Soulfully Transformative Retreats.

This episode will put some important perspective and hope around the possibility of reinvention in your life, even when it seems impossible.

Please enjoy!
