When I was a young mother, all I wanted was for my kids to grow up and have “good jobs.” My family didn’t have a lot when I was growing up and I was determined that my children would have every opportunity that I missed. If my kids had asked me what it takes to succeed, I probably would have answered something like “Do well in school… go to university… get a good job at a company that will take care of you.” I’m sure that many moms feel the same.
Sean Connery was born in 1930 in Edinburgh, Scotland, which just happens to be where my youngest son lives. Today, on August 25th, 2015 he is 85 years old, so, I would love to wish him a very “Happy Birthday” on behalf of all the women in our Sixty and Me community – not only because he is an acting icon for our generation, but, because he is a man of deep character, who is aging his unique and wonderful way.
In previous articles, we have discussed many aspects of selling your handmade items online. First, we started with an explanation of how to improve your crafting skills. Then we discussed how to decide which items to create. In the last article we covered where to sell your items online. And, now, in this final article in our craftpreneur series, I would like to cover how to find customers.

As a writing coach and author, I do understand why. The two main reasons are related: lack of confidence in what they have to say, and not knowing how to start. That is why I set aside time to write a step by step guide that would lead a first-time writer through the whole process of planning, researching, writing, publishing and selling their own book.
Online dating over 60 can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, technology is making it easier than ever to meet new people. On the other hand, there are plenty of people out there who are willing to take advantage of you. Even if you manage to avoid the pitfalls, making your online dating profile stand out can be a challenge.
When I met with professional makeup artist, Ariane Poole, to discuss fall colors for 2015, we both agreed that we love autumn. Even though we both appreciate the warmth of the summer sun, autumn has a special power. As the leaves turn from green to gorgeous orange and brown, we have the opportunity to experiment with new makeup styles.
Do you every feel like you are chasing happiness? How many times have you said, “When I get _______ I’ll finally be able to do ______?” Or, “If only _____ would happen, I could finally be happy!” This kind of thinking comes so naturally to us that we barely even notice it. Unfortunately, natural as it may be, this kind of thinking also prevents us from being happy in the present.
Two of my favorite actors of all time are Lily Tomlin and Sam Elliott, so, I was so excited to find out that they will be appearing in “Grandma,” a new film by Sony Pictures. In the film, Tomlin plays an opinionated, yet ultimately charming grandma, who is refusing to be invisible after 60.
A few years ago, I attended a team workshop where we had to write down three things about ourselves that we thought no one else would guess. It’s amazing how people create images in their minds of who you are and what you are capable of doing. Revealing our secret powers, talents or experiences can be a wonderful way to let people see and understand who you really are rather than who they perceive you to be.
“Love and marriage, love and marriage go together…” Well, you know the rest of the song. If only it was that easy! In many ways, falling in love is simple. Turning our passion into a lasting marriage is something else entirely. Fortunately, we have our sisters in the Sixty and Me community to turn to for advice. Many people in our community have been happily married for 4 decades of more and they want to share their secrets with you.
Spirituality is not just a tool for addressing the challenges of aging. It is a key to reaching our potential at any age. This is the view of Carol Orsborn, who has written 21 books and dedicated her life to helping boomers to find meaning and purpose in their lives.
It’s easy to get caught up in the sun, enjoying some well-deserved downtime with a glass of wine and a good book. But sometimes, we end up spending too long out there and our skin suffers as a result.
