How often do you talk to other women your age about what you’re going through and how you feel?
Sherrilynne Starkie woke up on her 59th birthday and realized that the answer was not very often at all, and that had to change. She set out to start a podcast and interview 50 women over 50 to hear their stories and give women a space to come together and feel connected.
In this episode of Midlife Rise + Thrive, Sherrilynne is talking about what she learned from that experience and how it brought her back to a joyful place in her life. We’re talking about what it’s like to be a woman in midlife, the value of hearing other women’s stories, and how to shape your legacy.
Sherrilynne Starkie is an award-winning communications consultant, a problem solver, and a big-picture thinker. She has an international reputation as a social media innovator and is a prolific blogger and podcaster. Her goal for her 50 Women Over 50 podcast was to talk with women over 50 to learn how they see the world, what lessons they’ve learned in life, and what advice they have for us all.
Topics We Cover in This Episode:
- What Sherrilynne learned from 50 women over 50
- The power of doing things for yourself
- The beauty of hearing stories from all walks of life
- Why midlife can feel lonely, especially for women

Sherrilynne wants you to know that this is your moment. Grab it, seize it, and go for it because together we’re taking on the world and we’re winning. Turning 60 is not the end of life as you know it; you’re just getting started. I hope this episode helps you feel less alone and more inspired to live life to the fullest at any age.
