The Midlife Revolution
Nina Szewczak, of The Midlife Revolution fame, is the queen of turning situations from tragic to magic, getting better – not bitter, and creating lives that are impossible not to truly love and be in love with (to the point where you have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming!).
Flirting – How Do They Get Away With It?
Nina was referring to more flirting that happened with Jenny Stilwell!
Kevin and Graham came across a new AI tool that translates the text of our podcasts. It is called Fathom.
Graham, Kevin, and Nina discussed various technological tools and their potential uses. Kevin mentioned Otter AI for transcription and note-taking. Any new shiny object! Kevin mentioned Carplay for dictation while driving. They also briefly mentioned Graham’s virtual Alternative Investment Summit in June 2023 and his desire to create a paid note-taking product.
The Midlife Revolution
Nina discussed her journey of personal and professional development since her last appearance on the podcast, including leaving her previous job and embarking on a midlife revolution by traveling across Canada with her two Dalmatians. Graham and Kevin welcomed her back to the podcast and discussed her academic qualifications and expertise in neuroscience.
From Tragic to Magic
Nina’s marriage ended abruptly when she found out her ex-husband had been leading a double life for four years. Despite the shock, she used the experience as an opportunity to change her life and pursue her passion for neuroscience and mental health.
Nina discussed her journey of moving to Canada after facing adversity and how it led her to start a business focused on helping people through midlife changes. Graham asked about the starting age for midlife, but Nina explained that it varies and that people come to her for a variety of reasons at all ages.
