Sarah Brokaw Talks Fortytude on The Rachael Ray Show

Sarah Brokaw, therapist and daughter of former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw, interviewed over 300 women to find out how they navigated the journey of being 35 and older. She comprised the best of their inspirational life lessons into a new book, Fortytude: Making the Next Decades the Best Years of Your Life – through the 40s, 50s, and Beyond. “I had to choose only forty [stories], which was very difficult,” Sarah tells Rachael, “but you can imagine that those forty women are pretty impressive.” Sarah explains the meaning behind the title: “Fortytude means looking at life through the lens of curiosity and confidence rather than the lens of fear and regret.”

Watch the video above to hear Sarah recall one of the important life lessons she learned from her father when she was 15, which he imparted to her after she threw a party with 150 friends while her parents were out of town!
