Ep. 62 – Journey To Simplicity – With Kay Newton

by | Alignment & Flow, Challenge & Growth, Healthy Habits (Mind Body), Meaning & Purpose, podcast

In this interview, Kay Newton shares her journey to simplicity, how she arrived at this point in her life, and why she wants to help others, which in turn can help our planet. Kay loves to inspire people around the world to live midlife on their terms, full of fun and vigor. She loves to create and hold space where an individual or group can master their purpose in life. She says the process does not need to be “time-consuming or painful”. 

Passionate about simplicity, Kay says “Midlife Simplicity is often hard to find. Midlife is a time of grief, overwhelm and worry which impacts your well-being. The loss of past roles or relationships also creates uncertainty. Whether you are navigating a looming empty nest or deciding what to do when your parents die and all the issues in between, don’t let them take you by surprise!”

Kay Newton is the Founder of Midlife Strategies. She is an experienced Midlifer and has worked with people over 50 in both their personal and business life, taking them from “Worry to Wealth” in simple stages she calls the ‘lightbulb’ and ‘goose pimple’ moments. Kay is an award-winning International Speaker and voracious author. She is passionate about “down-to-earth space creating to guide women over 50 to get their mojo back”. 

Kay delivers compelling yet relatable presentations for conferences, online events, interviews, panels, meetings, retreats, workshops, and seminars.
