Picking Up Pen (or Keyboard) at Midlife

May 28th, 2009

As Founder of the National Association of Baby Boomer Women, www.NABBW.com and www.BoomerWomenSpeak.com I\’ve learned that baby boomers, born between 1946 and 1964 are interested in writing. There are many reasons for this midlife call such as: writing their own story that\’s been buried too long writing to heal self and others the need to connect blogging a desire to make a difference the desire to heal the world a need to educate others about a passionate topic having been told they weren\’t a good enough writer when younger, or shouldn\’t write as a profession because... Read More

Heart Palpitations & Menopause – Here\’s A Quick Way to Relieve Them

May 13th, 2009

Menopause isn\’t typically a life threatening condition – but in extreme cases, it can bring upon symptoms like rapid heart beat that feel like it is. The occasional feeling that your heart “skips a beat” does not necessarily indicate a serious medical problem. For those with menopause, rapid heart beat should be monitored by your doctor to check for a mitral valve prolapse which is a mild deformity of a heart valve. Palpitation is when the heart races repeatedly without any sign of stopping. It\’s not only extremely uncomfortable, it\’s downright frightening.... Read More

The Echoes Heard at Work

May 13th, 2009

Coward. That word, along with others less printable, popped to mind when I heard a story about a friend\’s son. It turns out, he learned he was no longer employed via a text-message to his cell phone on a Sunday night. The brief message from his ex-boss informed him that his last work day had been Friday. It\’s no surprise to hear about another job lost as unemployment soars, failed businesses close, consumers shut their pocketbooks, and entire industries restructure. But I\’m surprised any boss who wants to grow their business, have an engaged team, or achieve lasting results... Read More

Ship ‘n Shore ‘n Sun ‘n Sea

May 13th, 2009

Let\’s start with a few statistics: most (84%) people want to retire close to water; most (71%) people over 40 like to take cruises, and many (40%) of those surveyed cite climate as the most important consideration in choosing a retirement location. Is there a place where we can turn these statistics into one tidy and affordable package? How about living on a converted cruise ship? I had the opportunity to tour the “Alegria” (the working name of the ship meaning joy or happiness), which is undergoing its final transformation to a floating community before being docked in its permanent... Read More

Do You Know What You Want to Do?

May 13th, 2009

Empty Nesters, women and men who have been in a career for decades, stay at home moms, parents retiring, college grads and people returning from service, are all asked, what do you want to do now? Are you asking yourself that question? Have you come up with some ideas but … I know what it is like when you are burnt out, can\’t figure out what to do next, or feel you just can\’t do it all by yourself. Over the years, I have heard stories of desire and confusion when it comes to what to do next. I was fortunate, sitting in my daughter\’s high school college meeting, that my... Read More

7th (Non-Financial) Secret to Saving the Family Fortune

May 13th, 2009

Many people ask me when they should start talking with their aging loved ones about what they want for the future – where they want to live, what they want their prized possessions to go – that sort of thing. I\’ve heard people say the general rule of thumb is “40/60”. In other words, when you turn 40 and/or when your loved one turns 60. I personally don\’t agree. I say no matter how old you are or how old your loved one is, start now! A while back I asked you “How do you define “family fortune”?” I pointed out that most people say money when, in fact, that\’s... Read More
