Toronto, ON September 15, 2009 SWING Think Inc., announces the launch of Season 3 of its award winning, web-based T.V. show, www.DefineYourself.ca which tells the story of women 40+ and their experience of aging. This year's cast includes five women ranging in age from 42-63 years and ranging in aging attitudes from the naturalist to the high esthetic. The third season's stories will be released starting today.

In its second season, Define Yourself won the prestigious Gold Quill award for excellence in electronic communications and programming and this year Define Yourself is expanding its seasons webisode programming to four times the size to be released once weekly over a year.

Every woman will identify with one or more of these five dynamic and passionate cast members of everyday women; Janette, Nicole, Anne, Caroline and Debra, coming from diverse backgrounds and providing insight into the wide range of mindsets of women across the continent. You will see each woman's individual contemplation and the fireworks when they come together to meet for the first time. This provocative and groundbreaking series covers a range of aging-related topics such as self-esteem, image, choices, vanity and authenticity, influences and societal pressures, regret, breakthroughs and of course, sex-and tells it like it is for women— sometimes funny and often serious.

"For any woman who asks me what this show is about, all I can say is that if you are 40+, you have to watch it. Aging is a very intricate topic and there is so much more to say and learn about women and our experience of it. Airing this as a web t.v. show makes it more intimate and interactive for viewers", says Catharine Fennell, Executive Producer, Define Yourself.ca web T.V. show. "Define Yourself.ca really gets into it, and not just skin deep but all the way in, exploring all of the influences that affect us and the choices we make. It's not always pretty but it's real!"
