Margo Lindauer is the definition of a multihyphenate. A lawyer by training and former clinical legal professor, Margo is currently a consultant and podcaster, sharing her wealth of knowledge and experience on the biweekly Justus podcast, which she hosts with Tashira Halyard.

“We confront challenging and confusing topics that disproportionately impact women and femmes through what we call ‘big’ age,” she explains. “We want to free the stigma around hard conversations and decisions.” 

It’s not easy work, but Margo finds levity in the simple things, like taco Tuesdays and dance class with her daughter. Ahead, find out more about Margo’s favorite day of the week in our latest Day in Brief.

Uwila Warrior: What is your favorite day of the week? 

Margo Lindauer: I don't have one favorite but I do love Tuesdays. And I love tacos!

UW: How is that day different from the others? 

Margo: We are in the swing of things with our week and Tuesdays are the day I usually have at least one in-person meeting or recording and a dance class with my daughter.

UW: How does the day start for you? 

Margo: I typically wake up at 5:30. Our mornings are early and sacred. My husband and I usually have coffee (sometimes in bed) and then get some work done before our morning chaos begins, usually right at 7. I make my girls pancakes or waffles every morning, it is a tradition. We cook, eat, and chat while my husband does lunches! 

My big girls are out the door to school by 8. My big girl meets a friend and walks by herself. I typically walk Valea and we drop off our little one by 8:30. As soon as everyone is off, I am at my desk and starting to pound out emails, projects, and deliverables for the day.

UW: What about the afternoon?

Margo: Tuesday afternoons I either do an in-person training with a local organization or Tashira and I film one of our YouTube mini episodes. We drop full-length episodes every other Monday and "mini" episodes on the off weeks. Tuesdays afternoons Valea and I have a dance class at our house with Gabi. I was a dancer when I was younger and was missing the ability to move freely to music. As I was recovering from all my surgeries I kept dreaming of dancing to the beat again. Simultaneously, my middle daughter was dancing around the house and showing us moves she was learning at school but felt insecure about taking a class. I connected with Gabi a few years ago at a yoga retreat and then on a deeper level during a yoga training we did together. I knew she would be the best energy to help Valea and I move through this phase.

UW: What does a perfect evening for you look like?

Margo: Dinner at home after dance. A perfect evening would include watching Abbott Elementary with the whole family. While I am not a great cleaner, it is important that we all clear the table and tidy up the kitchen before the night is over.

UW: What habits or moments during the day give you strength?

Margo: Making sure I drink enough water! And am properly fueled and rested.

UW: How do you power down at night?

Margo: I dim the lights in the house, make sure all the girls are safely in their beds and usually dive into mine after making myself brush my teeth and wash my face. If I am lucky, my husband will read an article out loud. I usually fall asleep but we discuss it in the morning!
