“It doesn’t matter what’s happened so far, there’s always the opportunity to say hey, I want something new, I want more empowerment, I want more freedom, I want to take on this thing I never thought I could do.” ~ Lisa Betts-LaCroix

Today’s conversation is with Lisa Betts-LaCroix.
Lisa believes we all have our own unique superpower and as host of the SuperPower U Podcast, she dives in with her guests to reveal their mental models and tactical skills to uncover their very own superpower.
Lisa has an interesting background. Living in LA as an actor, she wracked up credits in hundreds of television shows, films and movies-of-the-week. After she and her husband moved to the Bay Area and started having kids, she co-founded a network of families who educate their children outside of traditional schools – you’re likely familiar with home-schooling, unschooling or any number of names this is called. She didn’t like what she was seeing in public school so took her kids’ education into her own hands. Now that’s bold.
And then, in her late 40s, she discovered ballroom dancing and within a very short period of time competing, won the World Title in Pro-Am American Rhythm Ballroom Dance. Pretty cool.
This conversation veers into some really interesting talk about how our current language around getting older just doesn’t properly express what it means to age. Things have changed a lot in maybe just the past 10 years. People are talking about living to 120, 125, 180! When we set limits on how old we can live for healthily, those words affect the choices we make and how we’re seen.
As you’ll hear in this conversation, neither of us has the answer – YET – as far as how to best approach the topic of our “middle years,” but we’re exploring it and trying to figure out. If, after hearing this episode, you have some ideas, by all means, share them with me!
Until then, enjoy this conversation with the inspiring Lisa Betts-LaCroix.
