Welcome back to The Main Thing Podcast!

Today you will meet Sheila Tully, someone who is not just redefining wisdom but also revolutionizing the way midlife women perceive and love their lives. A behavior change specialist, Sheila shares her insights gained from a rich career as a corporate executive and her current role as a coach and podcast host, on why this era belongs to wisdom and how women can step into a co-equal partnership with men. She unveils the layers of our brain's functioning that facilitate enduring change and a fulfilling life. Don't miss out on this enlightening discussion if you are ready to take life head-on, armed with wisdom and an invigorated spirit.

Sheila Tully has worked with hundreds of smart, midlife women, helping them to change in ways that have them loving their lives again. Sheila spent 25 years as a corporate executive and was the CEO and co-founder of the tableware company Ella Style.

Following an early retirement, Sheila pivoted to a new career in the emotional health space, as a practitioner of the work that had helped her get unstuck. She now teaches a fresh approach to understanding the nature of the brain in a way that makes any change you want to make in your life not only possible but permanent.

Sheila comes to us today from her home in Nashville.

Settle in and get ready - over the next 9 minutes, you will discover why Sheila Tully is one of the wisest people I know.
