#23. The Importance of Showing Up as We Are: Jackie MacDougall, 48
Jackie MacDougall, fellow midlife podcaster, and I had a really honest conversation. We talk about the mixed messaging women hear, how she feels about aging, and about our shared passion in elevating women’s voices in midlife. We also talk about why it’s important to open your heart and mind to others, and what is the hardest question we need to ask ourselves. Finally, Jackie answers what it means to thrive in your 40s – which might not mean what you think it does.
The conversation turns to podcasting and Jackie not only pushes me, which I truly appreciate, but opens up about how her own insecurities bubble up to the surface. She even gets me to admit how I worry about my voice and presence, which is not easy for me to do.
Jackie MacDougall worked for over two decades in TV and digital marketing, creating content for women with some of the most recognizable and innovative names in entertainment like Queen Latifah, Harry Connick Jr., Tyra Banks, Chrissy Teigen, and Sharon Osbourne.
Jackie combines her personal and professional experience in finding her purpose, helping women over 40 find their voice and build their tribe through podcast coaching, live events, and online programs. She is the founder of Forty Thrive and host of the Forty Thrive podcast and lives in the Los Angeles area with her husband and three kids.
