Episode 86: A Badass Woman with A Purpose



Mary Crafts chats with us about making decisions out of love rather than fear. Mary Crafts built what would become the most renowned catering company in Utah. That multi-million dollar empire became the launching pad for so much more. Mary reminds us that it doesn’t matter how many people believe in us; we need to believe in ourselves. On Mary’s journey to Mount Kilimanjaro, she finally discovered what she was made of and that she was enough. The most significant lesson that Mary learned on her adventure up the mountain was that it does not matter what you’ve done in the past; what you do today is going to make a difference.

Episode 85: The Power of Women Giving as One with Wendy Steele



Wendy Steele reminds us that this country started as men being the breadwinners and women staying at home to raise the kids. When women had more time on their hands, they volunteered, rolled up their sleeves, and did the work. We do so much better, and we get so much more out of our generosity when we give using time, talent, and treasure.

Wendy goes deep into the five focus areas of Impact 100: arts, culture & preservation, education, environment & animal welfare, family, and health & wellness. There is an open and transparent process to get a cause approved by Impact 100.

Plus, Wendy reveals how we can do our most significant work by having a diverse group around us.

Episode 84: Why Did I Come Into This Room? A Candid Conversation About Aging



Joan Lunden shares her personal stories and expertise as both a Boomer woman and an accomplished television personality of over 20 years. Joan starts off by talking about life in the spotlight. Being highly recognizable and appearing on national television every day meant that Joan was not your average working mom! Through intention, organization, and a lot of energy, Joan was able to find a balance between career and family. 

As Joan got older, she found herself in a very strange place – the senior citizen category. Boomer women are all experiencing so many changes, whether it is related to weight, sex drive, or even incontinence. Although these challenges are not uncommon, the shame and taboo around the subject make women feel isolated. Instead of dealing with aging privately, Joan boldly decided to share her story and empower other women to learn and laugh about aging together!

Episode 83: Women on Top…of the Money Game



Isn’t it time you used your wealth to make a difference in the world? Haleh Moddasser shares her personal stories and professional expertise as both a Boomer woman and an accomplished wealth management adviser. Haleh brings insights that resonate with women of means who long for a way to make a BIG difference in this world truly. Don’t let the old stereotypes, old ways of thinking, the challenges of being a mom, and fears of financial insecurity keep you from embracing your unprecedented wealth and power.

Women need to invest their assets in a way that is in alignment with their values. Plus, in general, women are better investors than men. Women tend to invest with a goal in mind – a college education for a child or grandchild, a dream vacation, a second home, etc. – so they usually do not react with haste when the market changes.

Episode 82: Planning for Financial Independence with Haleh Moddasser



Episode 82:  Haleh Moddasser chats with us about how women can plan for financial independence, utilize our control of our wealth, and create change in a man-centric world.

Haleh Moddasser, author of “Gray Divorce, Silver Linings: A Woman’s Guide to Divorce After 50” and Senior Vice President of Stearns Financial Group is here to bring some important topics to light.

Did you know that divorce over the age of 50 is growing at twice the rate of divorce in general?

Due to this shocking statistic, Haleh sits down with Lynn to discuss how women should be planning for financial freedom from a young age. As she states, “a man is not a plan”, so it’s important for women to learn about their finances, how to make investments, and what their options are in the event of a divorce.

Haleh also points out that women own a LARGE portion of the wealth in America. So what are they doing with that power? What they should be doing is:

  • Investing!
  • Closing the wage gap.
  • Bringing women into power positions.
  • Creating change.
