Unlock Your Superpower…

Maybe too much information…?

But, if I hear my freakin’ doctor tell me one more time—‘Holly, your vaginal walls are thinning because you’re getting older…’

I mean sheesh. Seriously? Thank you for letting me know. I appreciate that.  

Let’s just add that to the endless list of midlife ‘fixes’ that you’re never quite prepared for: 

 >> The low-estrogen cream that’s $90 a pop to stop those damn urinary tract infections… 

 >> Figuring out whether to ramp it up in your career—or lay low till retirement… 

 >> Turning to your husband and thinking ‘what’s next?’ as you wave the kids off to college… 

 Yeah. There are a million-and-one reasons why midlife gets a bad rap—but I’m not having any of it. 

And neither should you.

Let me perform a little test here, and ask you a question…

How could you move more proactively today, towards your future best self? 

Please, take a moment to picture. And lean into your gut reaction.

Now, let me guess… Are you mentally listing all things you need to ‘fix’ about yourself, or your circumstances? 😉

If so, you’re not alone. It’s how nearly every woman I ask answers this question…

But this knee-jerk reaction isn’t gonna serve you. 

Because the truth is it’s only through nurturing our strengths, NOT correcting our shortcomings—that we can actually experience growth, and get to where we want to be in life. 

And identifying how to lean into our strengths—those core characteristics that come most naturally to us—is the key to reaching our goals. 

FACT: There’s a huge amount of research over the past 15 years on the value of using our strengths to feel more fulfilled, live a higher quality of life, and have much more fun at work and home.

Don’t just take my word for it! Martin Seligman, the father of Positive Psychology, says that for a person to be truly happy and live a meaningful life, that person must recognize their personal strengths—and use these strengths for the greater good.

(It’s a stance that Forbes, Gallup and the VIA Institute on Character are also taking pretty seriously, advising parents to focus on their children’s strengths, not filling an imaginary skills gap in their ‘weakness.’) 

Bottomline: If we’re to take Seligman’s advice, we should spend time trying to figure out these personal strengths—what we were born to do—without wasting time on making things harder for ourselves.  

So, that’s why I’m making it super easy for you to do just that… 

And developed a Midlife Advantage Quiz to help YOU shine a light on your own unique superpowers—and leverage your strengths to navigate midlife on your own terms.

In it you’ll discover a personalized roadmap to:  

  • Swap the ‘I thought I’d be further ahead’ nonsense we ALL revert to, with ‘I’m open to feeling more happiness now,’ so you can live life as an opportunity (versus just existing).
  • Feel more motivated than ever to shift your energy, make the changes you want in your life and find more purpose and fulfillment 
  • Handle life’s disruptions head-on, start navigating life on your terms, and do ALL the things that might’ve scared you in the past—because I’m not letting you leave this world with regrets!

Plus, I’ll also let you into some secret insights from my own life along the way… 

Because, I’m telling you—leaning into your strengths is a waaay more fulfilling way to live than endlessly trying to fix your life. Or popping another $90 on low-estrogen cream… 😉

TAKE THE QUIZ NOW….just press here!



 P.S. Once you get your results, I’d LOVE to know how they resonated with you. Please reply back, tell me what you got, and if I nailed it.

Nurture Your Strengths

Many people are under the misconception that the sole focus of my work with clients is to attend to what’s not working well in their lives.  Though yes of course, obtaining what it is we want in and for our lives requires a level of attention to those areas that are weak or lacking, we often minimize or completely overlook our most powerful asset–our strengths. 

For some reason, when you ask most people how they can see themselves move more proactively towards a future best self, their knee-jerk reaction is to start listing all the things they want to “fix” about themselves or their circumstances. But research clearly shows that people actually experience faster growth and development when they nurture their strengths instead of correcting their shortcomings. 

Identifying and learning how to lean into our “signature” traits, those core characteristics that come most naturally to us, will be equally if not more important to reaching our goals as well as  improving our overall well-being. There has been a huge amount of research over the past 15 years finding those people who know and use their strengths on a regular basis are much more fulfilled, report a higher quality of life, and have much more fun at work. A great resource and tool that I have come to use personally and love to share with clients comes from The Via Institute. They put together a list of 24 character strengths where you can measure yourself through a simple 15-minute online assessment learning more about your strengths and how to leverage them. The assessment is free and can be easily downloaded using this public link: 

Of course, this is not to suggest we ignore making efforts to improve those areas we are weak in but rather, in addition, nurture and utilize our strengths to see where they may be able to support or lessen areas of weakness. It’s in both these actions where we can create the greatest likelihood for success. 

Wishing You Always The Best Of Success
