Welcome to 2ndSpring


confidential safe and friendly platform for women approaching mid-life, especially women of colour, who may find it difficult to have that conversation, those who just need a listening ear, curious about approaching mid-life to access the  help they deserve.

Hi there!  My name is Sazz Wanogho-Maud, thank you for stopping by.  I am a real person, a real woman, who through pure determination and  resilience rebuilt my life after my world fell apart approaching mid-life . I live in the United Kingdom, have a beautiful family, loyal friends and I love piña coladas. (And I would love to leave a legacy)

2ndSpring is a platform that supports and encourages women 40+ to prepare for mid-life. We offer one day weekend retreats, held each quarter of the year to bring like-minded women together to share their life experiences of mid-life.   We talk about well being, mindset, menopause, relationships, finance and starting a business with invited expert speakers to answer your questions of concern and much more. 

“What comes in 2ndSpring stays in 2ndSpring”


Change begins with having courage to take the first step.

My aim is for women at this time of their life, to be VISIBLE (shout out loud) women to restore their lives after unexpected adversities, for mothers to talk to their daughters about the changes that could take place approaching mid-life, without feeling embarrassed, for women who find themselves confused, low self esteem and feeling loss of control, off track, to reach out and ask for help and for women who feel alone, to know they are not alone – 2ndSpring can help.

Why I started 2ndSpring

The year 2016,  a time in my life,  I was being challenged both personally and professionally.  I had lost five immediate family members five years consecutively, a man I referred to, not just as my husband but best friend, died unexpectedly. I had hit rock bottom.  I needed help,  although from a large family and great friends at hand, they were going through their own pain. I knew help would have to come from someone unrelated, someone who would be honest without  passing judgement.

A friend invited me to my first business networking event. The evening truly inspired me,  I could resonate with many of the shared testimonies, also identify with the benefits of attending these kinds of events.  I was out of work with time on my hands, I knew that this would be something of interest,   I wanted to know more.  I contacted the guest speaker of the event, Mavis Amankwha entrepreneur, businesswomen and mentor. I completed a six month mentoring course and with her help, I began to put my life back together,  and as they say…….. “Out of adversity came opportunity”.

Today, three years on from taking the first step and asking for help, with the help, guidance and support of other inspirational women,  I am stronger, more confident, equipped with new skills and most of all……Myself a SURVIVOR.

Give me a call…… Let me help you take back control and the opportunity to …..
