Today, we’re sitting down with Wendee Saunders. Wendee has always celebrated a woman’s right to success and independence. Wendee has many business interests across many platforms, Networking Marketing, Container Home Building, Women’s Coaching and preparing for a launch of a new beauty brand. She doesn’t believe in limits and at 52 feels like she is just getting started. In the last year she has become an Open Heart Surgery Survivor so while her energy was boundless before she is now a force to be reckoned with and with this second chance at life is taking all things to the next level.

In this episode, Wendee shares how she was able to go through loss and an open heart surgery and how this fueled her to live a more meaningful life. She shares with us how important it is to stay curious especially for women our age and to think of retirement as a transition season, not an end of a career. Make sure to tune in until the end because she also talks about her SPF method that helps ladies to effortlessly be their best selves!
