Bernie Borges Host Midlife Fulfilled Podcast

I started podcasting in 2013. My most recent podcast is the Midlife Fulfilled weekly podcast which launched in February 2022.

I was frustrated by a lack of fulfillment, despite good health, a successful career, good fitness, a healthy marriage, and overall happiness. Despite these blessings, I was lacking fulfillment.

I conducted a survey and discovered I wasn’t alone on the journey to find more fulfillment. As an experienced podcaster, I knew I could provide a platform to help men and women in Midlife find more fulfillment and joy through a weekly podcast.

My 30+ year career is in B2B marketing. I apply my marketing experience by spreading the word to reach as many people over 40 as possible to empower them to thrive across the five pillars:

Health | Fitness | Career | Relationships | Legacy

One of the top two questions I am often asked is what is the meaning of fulfillment. That’s why I’m dedicating this post to the topic.

In the first 200 responses of the 2024 Midlife fulfilled survey, the answer to the survey question: “If you hypothetically could only be happy or fulfilled, which would you choose?” M…

The most common questions I hear from listeners of the Midlife Fulfilled podcast are about the five pillars.
