Makeda Smith - Pole Dancing Goddess
Show Notes

Makeda Smith of 'Flying Over 50,' is a diva of exotic movement and pole dancing. At the age of 60, she is strong, graceful and fearless. 

The story of how Makeda came to the pole dancing studio for the first time, and how it transformed her life, is at times harrowing and truly amazing.  Makeda transcended depression, financial ruin, internet trolls and global mockery to become a sassy, global influencer.  

She calls on women all over the world to move, embrace their inner goddess and enter the temple of the pole. 

After meeting Makeda, I was so inspired, that I said, "Yes" to pole dancing. At the age of 65, I went on a quest to find a dance studio and try pole dancing myself - and I lived to tell the tale.
