Your Bold Life

I'm Val Selby and I'm here to share and talk about how you can live as your best self. Sharing and talking are two of my Dammits and I hope we'll find some of yours along the way. If you are a woman over 40 then this is a call to take your turn. I want you to go after forgotten dreams and create new ones. We are not in a mid-life crisis, we are adjusting to all the many changes going on. I've reached out to the many people I've run into that have worked through changes big and small to find their happy place. I know they will inspire you. Join me in the coming weeks as we jump into creating Your Bold Life. Because you deserve to live as your best self.... Show More

The last week I’ve been doing some market research interviews with empty nester midlife women for my next product and my findings are exciting. Ideas and issues that weren’t on my radar are going on the list and quite a few things I’ve had on my list already will now be bumped up the list.…

One thing I love about working with midlife women is the realizations that are happening. Getting to that point where you realize what you are good at and how many you can help by stepping into the role you are meant to be in. Rochelle Marie went through pretty big changes in her 40’s which…

Bare with me through a bit of this one and you might want a tissue. I promise if you stick with me it’s ALL good. My story I’m sharing today dramatically changed my life and was a devistating smack in the face of choices I was making. Talking through this episode was crazy therapeutic and…

I loved talking with Sandy Rodriguez about her many interests and how a major career change set that in motion. If she hadn’t made a giant change in her life, she never would have known how much fun it is to make wine and enjoy outdoor activities. One big difference between her major career change…

By the end of 2020 my boundaries SUCKED and I was spiraling. It had been too long since I’d gone over them to see if I needed to make changes or set some that had never been set. How many aspects of our lives are firsts in this last year we’ve had? The wonderful thing…

I’ve always considered myself an open book and that isn’t a negative in my opinion. It’s not something I need to change about myself. But, I think I grabbed that phrase from others and never paid attention to what it really means. Yes, I’m in reflection mode lately and feeling out where I want to…

I’m not here to tell you that you need to pick a word of the year or that it will change your life. I can tell you that having a real word of the year CAN change how you life your life, but only if it’s a good word for you. Here are my words…

As a recovering workaholic, Annie Gaudreault chose to go back to school in her 40’s and go after a life that had more meaning. Chatting with Annie is so encouraging because a lot of her journey seems so similar to how I’ve gone through mine. She had some big epiphanies, but for the most part…

Back in Episode 31 I said I wanted to meet up with Catharine again to talk more about religion. So we did! I love how all of her past spiritual experiences have left her very open to religions and creating more of what she loves in the world. We talked briefly about her past and…

While I can’t be in Bali with Lydia Lee I’m definitely going to live vicariously through her. You know, like stalk her website every once in a while to look at the tropical pics lol Talking with her about life and businesses changes and permissions to do both is so helpful. I need that reminder…

How often are you finding yourself putting a smile on your face when you don’t wanna? I said I was going to come back and talk more about the garbage running through my head so here we start. If you are an empty nester, has covid felt like back when you were raising the kids…

I really have no idea where the playdoh reference came from in this episode. I hope those that love grey playdoh aren’t offended after listening. I’m going through things in my brains lately and there will be quite a few future episodes talking about it. I’m becoming more and more “ok” as I pull off…

I just love how women have been brought into my life when I need to hear their message. Connie Curtis is definitely one that not only did I need to hear from her when we recorded, but also when I edited and scheduled it. Whoo, I’ll be listening to this one more than once myself.…

My friend Tish Lee is leading a charge for body positivity in a way that I really connect with. It’s not about glorifying being unhealthy, it’s about loving our bodies and taking up space as ourselves. She is an inspiration for me to embrace where I’m at with my weight instead of hating and shaming…

We tell ourselves that we can’t do things that will lead us towards our dreams because (a,b,c…). We give permission to others quite easily to go after what they want. But do we sit there asking for permission to go after our dreams? I see this happening when things are out of our comfort zone.…

I felt a quick bond with Catharine Clarenbach and her honesty. I love her willingness to talk about everything she lives with and the struggles she’s had to get to embracing who she is. If you have bipolar disorder or know someone that does, I highly suggest reaching out to Catharine to talk about it.…

Can you remember being asked what you want to be when you grow up? So many times! I tried hard not to ask a lot of kids this question as my kids were growing up because it’s tough to answer. We don’t even know who we are, let alone what we want to do. Wouldn’t…

It won’t take you long to figure out I was intrigued and ready to dig into the Color Code that Kelly Knowles works with to help distinguish your driving core motivate. How can there be a personality trait identifier for 30 years and I’ve never heard of it? When she found this it was a…

What if you impressed yourself with who you are? Did your inner critic just yell, “Yikes, we’re not allowed to do that!” You set goals and bust your ass to achieve them. How often are you merely taking a deep breath after they are complete and quickly analyzing everything that went wrong? What would it…

Pam and I “met” doing quick talks on a mutual friend’s weekly meeting. We happened to volunteer for the same week and our messages were similar. It was GREAT! She is a much more accomplished and organized speaker than I am so I was writing down things I want to emulate. As you can tell…
