TMM PODCAST EPISODE 021: Make The Rest Your Best with Laurie Wright

As mothers, we want to see our children grow up and lead independent lives. But at the same time, it can be very lonely once they depart. This phenomenon is called empty nest syndrome.

Women, especially full-time mothers and those undergoing menopause at the same time, typically suffer more when this happens, and the feeling of grief and loss of purpose may be more pronounced.

In this week's podcast, we're joined by Laurie Wright. Laurie developed a program called Make The Rest Your Best to help passionless empty nesters create their own unique heart-centred action plans and have them be ready to enter their next life chapter with renewed passion, purpose, and focus.
