confidential, safe and friendly platform for women approaching mid-life, especially women 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. Middle-age is the time in our lives that we pause for a moment to reflect.
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
2ndSpring is a platform that supports and encourages women prepare for mid-life. By the time you reach middle age, it’s likely that you will have experienced some trauma or loss. The death of a family member, a significant change in your identity, divorce, physical or emotional abuse, loss of fertility, empty nest syndrome, and other experiences may have left you with a persistent sense of grief. You may find yourself questioning your deepest beliefs and your most confident choices. Along with the emotional upheaval, the physical challenges can be even more daunting.
“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, women to restore their lives and find their VOICE 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, and life can be a wonderful experience at this time.

Why I started 2ndSpring
A time in my life where I was challenged both personally and professionally in my 50s. I had lost six immediate family members, five years consecutively, including a man I referred to not just as my husband, but best friend who died unexpectedly. I was made redundant due to company relocation, about to lose my home, and going through a change of life. I had hit rock bottom. I needed help. Although from a large family and great friends at hand. I knew help would have to come from someone unrelated, someone who had experienced such tragedies and would be honest, without passing judgement, someone to support my emotional and mental state.
To help me through the grieving process, a friend invited me out for the evening to a networking event she felt would benefit me. I sat among the attendees thinking about how my life had changed forever, I was out of work, grieving and feeling totally heartbroken. Although totally devastated and broken, I had a family who was dependent on me, I had to find a way of building myself back up. I listened attentively to each key speaker, and suddenly I felt elation and hope.
After attending the event, I contacted the guest speaker Mavis Amankwah, business woman, diversity ambassador and mentor, I signed up and completed a six month development mentorship with her, attended The Coaching Academy, and began to put my life back together, and as they say…….. “Out of adversity came opportunity,” 2ndSpring was born.
