Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

Today’s episode is all about  When Passion for Brain Health Helps You Overcome Fear in Midlife.

My guest on today’s show is Berniece Hunt.

When Berniece’s husband Oliver contracted sepsis, which went into his brain, she experienced a short glimpse of life with someone whose brain was “broken”.

That incident halted her 12-year, post-retirement “gig” as a part-time wellness coach and turned her focus specifically to brain health.

With the pandemic limiting Berniece’s options, she plunged into the internet world.  Her grandkids became her biggest cheerleaders as, approaching 70, she received her certification as a brain health professional and launched her online business, Keep Your Brain Sharp. Berniece is loving her new career direction, being an entrepreneur, challenges and all, and learning to “feel the fear and do it anyway!”

Please enjoy this episode!
