Welcome to 2ndSpring


confidential safe and friendly platform for mature women entering their second stage of life, especially women of colour who may find it difficult to have that conversation, those who just need a listening ear,  those curious about approaching this golden era, to access the  help they deserve.

Hi there!  My name is Sazz Wanogho-Maud, thank you for stopping by. I am a real person, real woman, who through pure determination and  resilience rebuilt my life after my world fell apart turning 50. I live in the United Kingdom, have a beautiful family, loyal friends and I love piña coladas. (And I would love to travel the world)

2ndSpring offers one day weekend retreats, held each quarter of the year, to bring like-minded women together to share experiences of life challenges, well being, menopause, relationships, with invited expert speakers to answer your questions of concern, at this time of your life, 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 of this era to be VISIBLE (shout out loud) for mothers to be able 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 out of control off track, to reach out and ask for help and for women who find themselves alone to know they are not alone – 2ndSpring can help.

Who is Sazz Wanogho Maud?

The founder of 2ndSpring,  daughter, sister, wife, mother, auntie  and friend, ready to take action and help make a difference to women of this era, who deserve the best. I work with women like you to help put you back on track. I am passionate about helping women of this era go through the changes of life with minimum stress and maximum help.

Why I started 2ndSpring

At a time in my life when I was being challenged both personally and professionally.  I had lost six immediate family members consecutively, a marriage of thirty plus years to man I referred to, not just as my husband but best friend, I had hit rock bottom.  I needed help, although having many fmily members at hand, I knew it would be better from someone  unrelated, someone who would be honest without judging me or passing judgement.  

A friend invited me to a business networking event about survivors. The evening truly inspired me,  I could identify with many of the shared testimonies, and I could see the benefits to attendees of these kinds of events.  Out of work, with time on my hand, 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 with the help guidance and support of other inspirational women,  I am stronger, Myself a SURVIVOR.

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