Lee Brochstein is a serial entrepreneur, and as she was selling one business and thinking about what she was passionate about for her next business, she decided that there wasn’t enough focus on women at midlife, their challenges, their accomplishments, and the magnificent journey they all walk at some point, as they approach and embrace midlife. She realized she wanted to create a business that served women at this amazing time in their lives, and began to lay the foundation for an event that would be a jumping off point for that new business entity. Lee has taken her own windy road to get to the intersection of midlife and marvelous and her hope, is by sharing stories, laughter, tips, tricks, and thoughts women all over the world will join her on this journey and find a place to gether at this small interesection of the internet.
Lee Brochstein has come full circle in her life. Turning 50 in 2017 has definitely been a milestone, and she’s the menopausal mom of two who often forgets what she is saying in the middle of her sentences. Ten years ago, Lee started a humor blog when she became what she fondly likes to call an eunuch (i.e., had a complete hysterectomy). The blog was called Headaches, Hormones, and Hot Flashes and her audience quickly fell in love with her quick wit and fun writing style. Her blog was widely read and Lee became known as The Hot Flash Queen. You know you’re jealous! A serial entrepreneur, Lee is adept at conceiving, launching, and scaling startups, and she’s no stranger to rolling her sleeves up and doing anything it takes to be successful. That tenacity has served her well.
In addition to an amazing sense of humor, Lee’s strength lies in her innate ability to shake things up and make things happen. Along the way, she can always be counted on to come up with some pretty spectacular ideas. Lee has written for The Huffington Post, ehow, Spark & Hustle, AOL.com, and SheKnows.com. She has also been featured in the Houston Business Journal and The Houston Chronicle.
Lee’s passion is for all women walking this journey of midlife with her to know they can follow their dreams, and to help them any way she can. Her biggest life goal is to be able to sleep all night without waking up at least twice to pee.
