“If I didn’t have this fear, what could be better?” Jade Chang Sheppard has made it her mission to inspire women to ask and answer that question. On the surface, she seems to have fear *licked*. She built her own fortune in her 20s, birthed 3 gorgeous kids, had a successful marriage *and* divorce. She redesigned her life during a “mid-life awakening,” to include traveling the world to learn to surf. But it took an ayahuasca journey and surf epiphany to bring Jade to a new threshold, and you will want to follow her off that cliff. Jade’s epiphanies turn into living workshops that she shares with the world! She bought a boutique hotel in Nicaragua (www.malibupopoyo.com) and turned it into an all-inclusive surfing heaven. She launched Scarletsociety.com, a multi-media miracle of phenomenal women speaking truth about sex, health and money for women over 40 (check out their peri-menopause guide). Jade also muses on non-monogamy (we take a pause in the early part of the podcast, but don’t worry, we come back to it!) sexual experimentation, power, and freedom. For a surfalogue, she coversthe Maldives, Chicama, Kelly’s Wave Pool, Bali, Nicaragua, CostaRica—girlfriend gets things done. One of the best things we get to hear from this accomplished, striving, powerful, self-realized woman, especially for those bad days: surfing is the hardest thing in the world to do. Get it, Jade!
