Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

Today’s podcast episode is about how to cool down with breathable sleepwear for night sweats in menopause and the entrepreneurial journey to figure it all out.

My guest today is Cathy Rust.

In 2020, Cathy launched her business, Cool Your Sweats, a sleepwear line dedicated to helping women who suffer from chronic night sweats get their sleep back.

You’re going to hear the story about how she used her background in green building materials to find the right fabric to help her sleep more comfortably and also, how she wanted to help others suffering from night sweats sleep better too.

While researching fabric Cathy learned that what we’re often told to wear to stay cool is not suitable for hot flashes and night sweats sufferers. It turns out that cotton is one of the worst fabrics to wear at night.

She could tell there was a gap in the marketplace and lots of misinformation. Cathy also knew she could help, so she started her business, Cool Your Sweats completely from scratch. She wants women dealing with this common problem in menopause to say good night to night sweats with her all-natural, effective sleepwear. The rest is history!

I know you’re going to get a lot out of this interview, so Please enjoy!
