August 12th, 2014

By Kathleen Winsor-Games NABBW’s Associate for Women and Work The changing nature of work and the new American workplace have been reported on frequently over the past decade. As women and Baby Boomers, we have moved from the expectation of having one or two jobs during the course of our lifetime to an uncertain landscape that our parents would scarcely recognize. The economic and workplace shifts occurring during the decade have been cataclysmic, and many workers are still numbed by recent shockwaves as they attempt to adapt. For many Baby Boomers, retirement has been postponed and age discrimination... Read More

By Kathleen Winsor-Games NABBW’s Associate for Women and Work Are you in a hurry to find your next job or consulting gig? Perhaps you were recently laid off, or the company you worked for these past 10 years closed its doors. After a lengthy and successful tenure, you find yourself in the position of having to tell friends and strangers about your value to future employers. As a woman who entered the job market at a time when we all expected to stay with the same company until retirement, you may be looking outside of your former employer’s doors at a startling new employment landscape... Read More

Given That Loss and Change Are Constants in Life, Why Is It So Hard to Let Go Of That Which No Longer Serves Us?

August 12th, 2014

By Ann Leach NABBW’s Associate for Loss and Change Who else is feeling like our friend Time is playing a game with precious Earth by spinning her around faster and faster just to see who, and what, will hold on? The errands to run, the work to do, the family to feed, the house to maintain and the relationships to nourish just in one day alone can leave you feeling overwhelmed, upset and exhausted. But what if we didn’t have to hang on to the stuff that no longer serves us?  What if we could just let Time and Earth play their games but know that we don’t have to join in?  What if we... Read More

Is It the Season for After School Afternoons with a Kitchen Full Of Kids Doing Homework and Eating Snacks? Not in the Empty Nest

August 11th, 2014

By Natalie Caine, M.A. NABBW’s Associate for Empty Nest Back to school is already happening.  Parents are checking the lists and encouraging their children\’s hearts, saying, “All will be fine, it is going to be a fantastic year.” Then there is you, Mom and Dad.  I remember when I dropped my daughter off at college, three thousand miles from home. I knew I would be fine and I knew I would be sad. I did not know what I wanted to do with the free time nor with the longing for the phone to ring with her on the other end.  Sure texts were a connection, but there is nothing... Read More

Aging Boomers: Is 50 Really the New 30?

August 9th, 2014

By Meryl Ain For the NABBW The weeklong celebration of Hoda Kotb’s 50th birthday on the Today Show culminated with a congratulatory video message from First Lady Michelle Obama to a surprised and delighted Hoda.

But I have to think that it would have been nice when those of us in the leading edge of Baby Boomers turned 50 and then 60 to have had validation of how glamorous, sexy, and “young” we were.
