So, here we are! You and me.
The question is, what are we doing here? And, I don’t have a good answer to that.
I’m a woman of a certain age who never learned to sit down, shut up, and grow up. Maybe like many of you.
I am recently retired. Like most of you, I’m not a financial guru, an expert in health insurance, a personal trainer, a social worker, or any type of professional working in the elder space. I’m retiring from a career teaching college marketing classes, with an emphasis on digital marketing. I don’t may money by recommending products to you (and the few where I do make a few pennies to support this site, I’ll clearly identify as such). I do include some ads but they’re clearly identified.
The upshot of this is that I’m here to share my opinions, mostly based on research, asking experts for their thoughts, and purposeful analysis. I know there are lots of scammers out there trying to rip off seniors or folks sharing a biased opinion to sell you something they make money from, but I’m not one of them.
I also welcome you to share your opinions and experience with me. If you reach out through the contact form, I’ll evaluate anything you’d like to share to ensure it’s unbiased, then I’ll post it on the site. You’re also welcome to comment on any post. I hope to generate a dialogue for folks to share their experiences so we can help the broader community of those 50+ or those helping someone over 50.
To fill my free time, my baby (who turns 30 soon) encouraged me to build this website to connect with other women like me. I’d love to hear from you. Simply email me through the comments if you have a story idea or want to write for my blog.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, Welcome!
