Do You Want More From Life?

If so, you're far from alone! Is there a niggling feeling, telling you there's more you could be doing, a different life you could be living? Life might look good from the outside, but it's not cutting it with your soul anymore. 

Perhaps you want to make a difference in the world. Perhaps you're thinking about your legacy. Maybe, now the kids have gone, you've more time at last and you want to make the most of it. Maybe, having hit midlife, you hear the clock ticking. If you're going to make changes, now's the time!

It's all too easy to get stuck in the day-to-day isn't it. To buy in to the negative stereotypes about being an older woman. And focused on fulfilling everybody else's needs, instead of your own. 

Whatever's causing you to feel a bit stuck, now is actually your time to shine. And the world needs you to - seriously!

To become who you were always meant to be.  

I'm Rachel Lankester, founder of the Magnificent Midlife Movement. My niggling feeling led me to now. I've had several careers, including journalism, banking and PR, but I most LOVE what I do now - helping like-minded women in midlife and beyond feel great and live life to the fullest. 

How did I get here? Let's rewind.

I went through early menopause at 41, devastating at the time, as I was trying for a second child, but in retrospect, a positive experience.

It took me on a journey of introspection and soul-searching. Now at 54, I'm better and bolder than ever. Though still battling those self doubt demons from time to time!  Don't we all?

I'm passionate about helping women navigate the often messy middle of life. So you can thrive not just survive. And become the woman you were meant to be. 

I challenge the status quo and work to change negative stereotypes associated with older women. I believe the older and more experienced we get, the more we have to offer the world and especially those women coming up behind us.  We get better with age not worse.

But I don't believe in denying we're getting older or hiding it either. I'm not ashamed to be a midlife woman. I'm proud of it. I think I've earned those midlife stripes just as much as I've earned the laughter lines around my eyes. They don't diminish me in any way.  

I share fabulous stories from wonderfully inspiring women in midlife and beyond on the Magnificent Midlife Podcast. For a quick dose of inspiration it can't be beaten.

I'm also the founder of The Mutton Club, an online magazine celebrating women 40+. You might like that too.

I can help you get clarity on what you want for your next chapter and make that a reality.

Let's have a chat and explore how I can help you take the next step.

5 fun facts about me....

Standing Around

It took 8 years of trying but I can now stand on my head. I need a wall for confidence but my feet don't usually touch it! 

She-Shed Dweller

Magnificent Midlife HQ is a gorgeous wooden office in my garden. If it had a loo and a shower I'd live in it permanently. 

Cat Cuddles

I have two rescue cats, a big ginger tom and a little black and white girl, who are the real rulers of my household. Gotta love 'em!


Never athletic in my youth, I ran my first half marathon in my 50th year. It nearly killed me but boy was it good to finish!

China Talk

Believe it or not I speak Chinese! I studied it at college and occasionally still get to show off in Chinese restaurants!
