Sometimes, all it takes is a conversation about who you’ve been and who you want to become that changes everything.

In this episode, Shelly Medina takes us through her journey of self-discovery and opens up about redefining herself post-redundancy, making decisions when you’re no longer needed, and the twists and turns that led to falling into a lifelong career in financial services. Shelly candidly discusses the challenges of keeping up the pretence of being someone she didn’t end up liking and how a Star Wars reference triggered a shift from a hard-line to a heart-warming leadership style.

You’ll hear how Shelly became comfortable in her skin in her fifties and went from loathing to loving the gym after reshaping her relationship with her body.
