5 Secrets to Becoming a Successful Freelance Writer

July 14, 2014 | 2

When you think about being a freelance writer, what images come to mind? Do you imagine yourself, sitting on a beach, the sun setting behind your laptop as you put the final touches on an article for a client 4000 miles away? In many ways, freelance writing sounds like the ultimate part-time job for people approaching, or already enjoying, retirement. It’s flexible, in demand and easy to get started with.

Summer is here and it’s time for me to dust off my sneakers and get back in shape. There’s only one problem. I have zero motivation to get started. Like most of you, I know what is good for me, but, I often lack the discipline to begin.

Fortunately, I have a secret weapon. I can trick myself into getting almost anything done, in just one minute a day. I’ll explain exactly what I mean, but, first, let’s look at what’s wrong with the conventional wisdom. Read More

What are the Benefits of Pilates for Women Over 60? You May be Surprised!

July 11, 2014 | 5

Pleasure is not normally a word that we associate with exercise. When I started my Pilates class a few weeks ago, I came away smiling after an hour of gentle and mindful stretching to soft music. I had a sense that, for me personally, I had found a workout regime that was right for my body. So it does not surprise me that Pilates has become one of the most popular exercises for older women. Many of us are taking classes to build strength, reduce back pain, lose weight, or to improve coordination and balance. It has some similarities to yoga because it focuses on principles related to concentration, control and centering of the body. Read More

60 Things That Women Love About Being 60

July 10, 2014 | 16

What is being 60 really like? It’s a harder question than you might think. Women over 60 are unique. We try to explain to marketers that we are not easily categorized. Still, advertisers like to bunch us in categories like “Boomer” and “Senior” which to them seem safe demographic boxes. There is even a brand new acronym being promoted by Marketing Magazine called the “Dragon.” This stands for women who are “divorced, rich, aged 65+, overseas travelers and networkers.” They mysteriously left out a descriptor for the letter “g” so I will suggest “gregarious,” “gracious” or “genuine.” But, no matter how you cut it, these words only scratch the surface of our wonderful complexity.

4 Ways Older Entrepreneurs Can Win Against Their Younger Counterparts

July 7, 2014 | 1

When I told my friends and family that I was quitting my marketing job at a well-respected global company to start Sixty and Me, I was greeted with confused looks. After all, at age 64, I was supposed to be “winding down” and preparing for retirement. Like the thousands of older entrepreneurs that start a business in their 50s, 60s or beyond, I didn’t see it that way. With 20 to 30 years ahead of me, I wanted to fill my remaining years with new adventures and valuable work. Now, with Sixty and Me growing and changing lives, I’m glad I did. At the same time, my experience raises some important questions. Read More

Why Not Design Clothing for Older Women Based on Lifestyle, Not Age?

July 3, 2014 | 41

Summer is finally here and, like many women, I am ready to refresh my wardrobe. There’s only one problem. Most clothing for older women is just plain, well… plain.

I’m honestly not sure why designers have such a hard time creating clothing for older women. It seems like, instead of trying to understand our lifestyle goals, they create clothes based on stereotypes. They believe that all we want is comfy flat shoes, longish skirts, baggy sleeves and stretchy pants with elastic band waists. Read More

June 30, 2014 | 21

Since starting Sixty and Me, I have had the opportunity to meet and interact with 100’s of talented, passionate older people. Many members of the community have the skills and experience to supplement their income in retirement – either as freelancers or business owners. So, I often wonder, why is it that so few men and women of my generation set out to supplement their income as they approach, or enter, retirement? The conclusion that I have come to is that most people allow their own mental blocks to prevent them from having the lifestyle that they want. Read More
