Dawn Taylor welcomes CEO and Executive-Producer of Modern Muse Media, Jesse Schewchuk, to the show to talk about what’s never talked about: menopause. Jesse wants to “make the m-word mainstream” and open discussion up so women can find the support they need in menopause.
Jesse and Dawn both lost mothers earlier in life, before they had entered menopause, and they talk about the disadvantages of not feeling prepared or having any conversations before they themselves became menopausal. Jesse wants menopause to become a more open conversation because it’s so much more than just jokes about hot flashes. She explains how it’s like a total brain re-wiring and the emotional upheaval it brings.
Dawn and Jesse shed light on the reality of what menopause looks like from their personal experiences: the truth about hot flashes, heightened emotion, brain fog, and body changes. And they share important advice and tips on treatments, therapies, supplements, and mindsets that have worked to help them regulate their journeys. This episode isn’t just for anyone experiencing menopause but for the spouses, partners, and friends of those in menopause too.

I felt like my life had been squandered a little bit in the season of having babies and people needing me. But after working with Dawn, I realize I have the potential for greatness. It was the first time in my life that I realized I actually have the potential to do amazing things.

I had been in therapy since I was 16, over 20 years of going to therapy before I met Dawn. But in 14-15 months of working with her, my brain has essentially rewired itself. How I view my friends, myself, and God has changed. But you have to buy in, and be willing to work through the tough stuff to get to the other side.
I Get It -
Life is Hard!
Like many of my clients, I’ve also felt ugly, useless, and forgotten.
I’ve gone through depression, molestation, and a brain aneurysm.
It took me years to understand what I had gone through and how to use my past to support others in conquering their fears and self talk.
That’s why I’ve condensed what I’ve learned into strategies to help you overcome your own stuff efficiently.
With multiple different certificates, training courses, and a whole lot of courage and stubbornness, I decided that if I could heal myself I could help others heal too.
