Enjoying An Authentic Midlife

Redefine Life

Midlife is a critical period when a need to refine life occurs, commonly raising questions like “Who am I?” and “Where do I go from here?”.

Midlife Changes

Women account for almost 51% of the 75 million baby boomers dealing with midlife changes.

Feel Good About Living

Midlife transformation is a wonderful opportunity to feel good about living beyond your forties.

Life Expectancy

The current average life expectancy for women is 81 years, meaning that most women will live one-third of their lives after menopause.

In Midlife And Beyond, You Deserve To Be Yourself

Getting to know your true self will help you to reinvigorate the joy of life’s pleasures, find inner peace, and feel in control of your destiny.

Getting To Know Your True Self

Has your current lifestyle become too routine, do you worry about retirement, or are you just looking to give new meaning to your life? Do you find yourself asking questions like “What comes next?” People often become so preoccupied with life that they forget to look inward. Are you ready to “be you” and “do you” but don’t know how? Take solace in knowing that you are not alone with these questions. The good news is that Dr. Barbara Collins has the answers, and she’s here to help!

Whether in midlife or beyond, you deserve to enjoy an authentic lifestyle without any of the stress or worry. It’s your turn to take back control of your life, and you can do it by pursuing an authentic career and genuine experiences. Dr. Barbara helps women achieve the satisfaction of authentic living by guiding them through self-discovery. When you discover or rediscover natural strengths, your life purpose becomes clear.

“Thank you so much for your presentation to the Vertex Women's Forum. As usual, I am awed by your message and strong sense of self. I think your message touches women at a very deep level and I'm grateful for the opportunity to hear about your journey.”


Peggy Bennett | Director of Employee, Team & Leadership Development, Vertex Inc.

“Dr. Collins, from the moment you meet her, emanates a certain charm and awareness about herself that you can’t help but notice. She demonstrates poise, professionalism and charisma. She’s a dynamic women and exceptional motivator.”


Phoebe Bryant | FMC Corporation

"Life After 50 - How to Plan a Meaningful Second Half of Life was an exhilarating, meaningful, and purposeful 6 weeks of learning, sharing and introspection. I looked forward to the energy and mental stimulation as the group focused on the planning and mindset needed to map out future plans in the second half of life. Dr. Collins carefully guided the journey using her own experiences and didactic talents. Journaling, vision boards and other tools that I had not embraced prior to the workshop will continue to be useful beyond the workshop, I highly recommend taking such a meaningful journey along with Dr. Collins."



“Thank you, thank you for facilitating a wonderfully successful kick-off meeting. I felt really good about what we accomplished and the tone that has been set for our leadership going forward. And I've heard nothing but positive feedback from others as well. I greatly appreciate your skill, experience, and professionalism in helping launch this new chapter in Wings' organizational journey. It has been a pleasure working with you.”


Pat Knauss | Director, Wings For Success
