This week’s podcast episode features an interview with Vanessa Ford.
You may not realize the signs. One day, you feel whole, purposeful, and full of energy. The next day, you feel out of sorts. Though nothing has changed in your outside world, something inside feels off-balance. You work out religiously, but the slice of pizza you only looked at but didn’t eat seemed to have found its way onto your scale.
Your skin is drier and the grey hairs appeared overnight. You love life, yet your energy levels wax and wane.
Should you give away those fabulous clothes in your closet that no longer fit? Or do you hold onto them thinking that more exercise and a stricter diet will help you wear them again with confidence?
You love your partner, yet sometimes, you think of the unspeakable.
You’re hot and sweating at 3:00 pm, then cold and reaching for a cashmere pashmina the next.
Whatever this is… it’s temporary. Maybe it’s even normal. Maybe it doesn’t even have to be this way.
Vanessa is the co-founder of MenoLabs, a company focused on women’s issues during perimenopause/menopause. She and her friend of 20 years, Danielle Jacobs, created MenoLabs to address what they see as a glaring need in every woman’s life.
Vanessa was prompted to action when, at 44, she began her own transition into menopause. Unsatisfied with the lack of support that women experience during this stage of life, and finding the stereotypes of women in mid-life exasperating and insulting, she met the challenges of this stage of a woman’s life with creativity.
Named a top ten finalist in the Cartier Women’s Initiative, Vanessa believes that for-profits can change the world and make a difference in people’s lives with the same passion for mission used by nonprofits — and in fact, should do so if they want to be truly successful. She is, herself, successful, on a mission to make life better for others and doing it all with authenticity and flair.

The F.A.B. Five according to Vanessa Ford:
- Put down your phone—with purpose.
- Take daily mini-vacations—no matter where you are, even if only for 5 minutes.
- Don’t over-think exercise. Just do it.
- De-stress by prioritizing your favorite sensory input; relax through your senses.
- Give your body what it needs.
