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.

Maria consults with service corporations, healthcare institutions, professionals, ministries and nonprofits groups to bring about powerful results and make significant, lasting contributions in less time, with less effort. Her newest book, Mastering Life’s Energies: Simple Steps to a Luminous Life at Work and Play, is written with the intent to make these principles widely available.

The effect is nothing less than extraordinary.
