Gail Goodwin on Midlife Magic

The Finding Magic in Midlife Radio Show was produced and archived by Exceptional Wisdom Radio from August 2008 through June 1013, when EWR went off the air. I’m moving the show archives to Choosing To Be Fit because much of the wisdom I’ve gained about creating a body- mind-spirit fitness lifestyle came from reading books by and talking with these exceptional midlife women. The interviews are timeless. I hope you will get to know some of these brilliant, talented, and inspirational women and learn from them as I did.

Motivated by mentors like Jack Canfield, Wayne Dyer and others, Gail realized the importance of daily morning inspiration in her own life. After years of gathering and sharing some of the best available inspirational wisdom with others, she founded Inspire Me Today in 2008 to make the Best of the Best Inspiration Daily, easily available to the world. features inspiration from the fields of Health, Wealth, Spirituality, Empowerment, Couples and Family and IMT Youth (where we feature Luminaries every Saturday from age 6-21).

As a result of the success of their co-penned song, Baby Come Back Home, she spent several years managing her daughter, Carly’s music career. Gail accompanied her daughter to more than 100 bases in the US and three trips to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba where Carly performed for our troops. In 2006 Gail and Carly created the ‘World’s Longest Letter’ of love and support to our troops, the Baby Come Back Home Soldier Scrolls. The scrolls reached more than 18 miles in length when they were signed by Congress at the US Capitol building in Washington, DC, just a week before they left to deliver the scrolls to 18 bases on a month-long tour of Iraq and the Persian Gulf.

Inspired by a Marine named Jesse, Gail returned to the US and was determined to follow her dream to create Inspire Me Today. After nearly a year of preparation, Inspire Me Today was launched in April 2008. Less than a year old, already reaches members worldwide in more than 80 countries! Gail’s goal is to inspire the world, one morning at a time and to help us reconnect each morning to the magnificence that we truly are. Gail believes we have the power to be, do or create anything in our life. She created to be your greatest cheerleader and brush the dust off of your wings so that you can fly even higher.
