Billy Lahr The Mindful Midlife Crisis Podcast

 
Billy Lahr is an intentional living and mindfulness coach, certified personal trainer, former educator, and serial overthinker.  Billy is also the host of The Mindful Midlife Crisis, a podcast for people navigating the complexities and possibilities of life’s second half.  Billy spent 21 years as an educator but experienced burnout due to budding mental health concerns, social media harassment from students, and a lack of job satisfaction.  In 2021, Billy left his job as dean of students in order to travel the world in search of meaningful experiences and community.  Since then, he’s been a GPS for those seeking purpose and passion by helping them identify strengths, explore curiosities, synergize with their crew, and cultivate consistency, discipline, patience, and self-compassion.
