#LeadandLift | Episode 33 | Michelle Zavala

Have you ever felt overwhelmed?

Do you feel procrastination, anger and fear…which are emotional signs of overwhelm…?

Or do you get a physical feeling…

What if you had three questions to ask yourself to rid the overwhelm?

Michelle and I met in a breakout room in 2020 at a business community.  We then became accountability partners and have since been cheering on each other on in our entrepreneurship journey.  She is a dear friend and I am happy to have her share her expertise with you.

Michelle is an Easy Aging™ Expert who specializes in helping energetic, forward-focused Midlifers rediscover their identities, find their joy and answer the big “What Now?” question for the second half of their lives using her three-step proprietary process titled The ACE Approach. For more than 25 years, she has been obsessed with finding the top ways to live peaceful and vibrant lives as we age.

She uses humor and a lighthearted approach to encourage and support her “Easy Agers” through her podcast, The Easy Aging™ Show, coaching, online courses and more.
