Our Story

When Mary Steinmetz was about to turn 60 she was fortunate enough to hear Jane Fonda’s Ted Talk “Life’s Third Act”. In this inspiring podcast, Jane challenged us as women to think of 60-90 as an entire lifetime, we’ve yet to live. Since as a generation we have a high likelihood of living to 90 we should think of how we won’t spend our Third Act. With this thought in mind, Mary began to dream of how she wanted to spend her Third Act. She decided to create a podcast “The Woman Up! Next, she teamed up with some friends (all liberated males by the way) and began her quest. So this is our story. The rest is history as they say!
