The menopause.
It’s not something you hear people talking about very often.
Yet it affects 20% of the workforce.
It’s a big topic.

Now, as a man, it’s obviously not a topic I can discuss with any authority. But my guest, Mel Kettle, has written about this often and has a personal story on the topic.

October 18th is World Menopause Day, so it seems like a good day to talk about this.

In a recent article by Mel, she mentioned a report in which 83% of respondents said their work was negatively affected by menopause. “Nearly half said they considered retiring or taking a break from work when their menopausal symptoms were severe. And 60% ranked workplace support during menopause as ‘poor’ or ‘below average’.”

So, what can be done to help, especially for women running their own businesses? Well, Mel is here to help!
