Ep.39, Out of the Bubble with Samantha McNamara
When I first met Samantha McNamara at an Enterprise collective networking event. I listened with great interest about her acupuncture practice, The Acupuncture Place in Pocklington. I was intrigued to find out more, not only about her business but about Samantha's personal journey to get here. Samantha has had an extensive career in the beauty industry and made the impressive decision to follow her passion for Acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatments leading her to gain a BCS Cons degree in these subject in her early forties. I know Samantha's story will resonate with lots of women out there and leave you feeling inspired. A song that always motivates you? If I'm exercising and weight lifting it's got to be Beyonce. I have a real eclectic taste in music as I also love listening to classical music. Run The World- Beyonce. A book that inspires you? I've never been good at journalling but I started using my new Moonology Dairy/Journal by Yasmin Boland at the beginning of lockdown and I love it. It's a cross between a book and a diary, with lots of tips and help with how to journal. Who inspires you? Jane Wurwand , the founder of Dermalogica has been a huge inspiration. Not only did she build a fabulous brand but she's a real support of other women in business.This journey has also taught me to not always look outside myself for inspiration too. I've developed my own self mastery and have the ability to create my own inspiration. ( I loved this answer and Samantha is the first guest to highlight how important it is to be able to look to ourselves too).

Welcome back to the 3rd series of Out of the Bubble and I am delighted to be back interviewing some fabulous women and sharing their inspiring stories. My first guest is Yvonne Copley , founder of a York based womens' charity called Kyra.  After years of working in the prison service and with the Salvation Army, concentrating on rehabilitation, some people may have decided to take life a little easier as they approach their retirement but not this lady.  Yvonne's experience and knowledge helped her see a clear gap in the support network for vulnerable women and decided to do something about it. Since starting Kyra 6 1/2 years ago it's grown to become an invaluable part of the York community support network for literally thousands of women from all works of life. Kyra offers secondary support which is often not available and can make the difference between someone recovering  successfully to those without who may relapse. Yvonne and Kyra have the support from over 40 volunteers and the demand for their services is continuously on the increase.  Favourite song- I Have A Dream -Abba Inspiring book-  Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach Who inspires you?

Ep.20 with Rachel Lankester, founder of Magnificent Midlife
Welcome to this weeks podcast with Rachel Lankester founder of Magnificent Mid-life, The Mutton club and can now add podcast host to her title. Rachel decided to create Magnificent Midlife through her own experiences of the lack of information out there for women in midlife and those going through the menopause. Rachel went through early menopause aged 41 and tackled all the issues head on but had to go out searching for the right kind of information and is now passionate about wanting to help other women have a more positive informative hub to go to. Her positive attitude to midlife is wonderful and her attitude to this next chapter in life is inspiring. We talk about her experience of the early menopause, her attitude to midlife, the importance of exercise and finding space to move forwards.  Favourite piece of music or song that motivates you?  "I would have  to choose two. The first one would be The Lark Ascending-Ralph Vaughan Williams and The Queen of Clubs by KC and the Sunshine Band."  What books has really inspired you?  "I'm currently reading The Wisdom Of Menopause by Christiane Northrup"  What advice would you give to women who are struggling at the moment and who feel that they've lost their way? "Just reconnect with who you are and who you want to be, because midlife is a great time to take stock. Who have you been before and who do you want to be in the future? Don't put the brakes on yourself now, really think what do you want now because it's your time to shine, it's your time to be you. Don't step back, step forwards"  I'm sure you will feel inspired by everything Magnificent Midlife offers, including the podcast which I have had the pleasure of being a guest on, which you can visit at www.magnificentmidlife.com. You can also keep up with everything Rachel is up to over on Instagram & Facebook @magnificentmidlife and twitter @magnifmidlife.  Please get in touch with any comments on the Anchor.ap or www.racheleperumodel.com.
