After a successful keynote speech we had co-presented, my friend Susan and I celebrated over a couple of cold beers. Maybe it was the beer, or the relief I felt after delivering our presentation, but I blurted out something I hadn’t intended to confess.
If you’re like me, you want to look your best whenever you leave the house. That principle applies to travel, whether for business or leisure. The right accessories can transform a limited wardrobe into a myriad of outfits.

Would you rather read a book than take a walk? Do you prefer cooking to working out? Well, you’re not alone.
Women our age have grown up to believe it can be selfish to make time just for us. A lot of us have lived 50 years or more with the mindset that we’re the glue that holds everyone together; that, without us, things would literally fall apart.
When actress Meryl Streep was recently asked to share her most important message for women, she kept it very simple: “Stop worrying about your weight.”

When it comes to senior dating, having lots of life experience is a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, by the time we reach our 50s and 60s, we know who we are and what we want from life. In many ways, we also have more to offer a potential partner.
Where have all the single older men gone? That’s one of the most common questions that women ask when they get back into the over 50 dating game.
Is mature dating worth the trouble? Over the last few years, I have been asked this question by so many women in our community. When we’re young, dating seems to be mostly about physical attraction and emotional attachment. But, by the time we reach our 60s, we tend to have a different perspective on romance.
For starters, many of us have been hurt before. Even those of us who have survived our previous relationships relatively unscathed, have a great deal of romantic experience to draw on.
After 6 decades on this planet, you could be forgiven for believing that love after 60 doesn’t matter. After all, many of us have plenty of practice living alone. Quite a few of us even enjoy living by ourselves. In this interview, I ask dating coach, Lisa Copeland whether “life without a man” is a viable option for women in their 50s and 60s. Then, we discuss whether love even matters. I think that you will find Lisa’s answer’s surprising. Enjoy the show!

Rivers have always fascinated me. I find it intriguing, but not surprising, that most of the large prosperous cities in the world are built on the banks of wide, powerful rivers.
Sailing up the north-most parts of Europe fills your lungs with fresh air and your mind with vivid scenery. Which way do you go? Join us in conversation with cruise journalist Jane Archer to find more about Norway and Baltic cruise opportunities. Enjoy the show!

As I walked behind two professionally dressed older men, I couldn’t help but overhear their conversation. I was heading to a class that promised to address public speaking anxiety. Apparently, these two men were headed in the same direction.
You’ve been invited to an interview and know that you’ll get just one shot at winning the position behind it. How do you plan for success?

There seems to be an unnecessary stigma hovering over the idea of aging. We grow from children into adults but that is not the end of road for us. Join us in conversation with Dr. Bill Thomas as he shares an exciting viewpoint on elderhood with us. Enjoy the show!
If I asked you to describe a typical YouTube star, what would you say? Perhaps you would describe a 22-year-old guy from Sweden with blue hair who yells at the camera for 7 minutes at a time. Or, maybe you would talk about the many talented young musicians, including Justin Bieber and Tori Kelly, who have been discovered on YouTube.
I have a love/hate relationship with pasta. I love that it’s so easy to prepare, it’s very versatile, and honestly, I crave carbs. However, I hate what carbs do to my waist and thighs.

I hate to admit it but I’m a creature of habit. Year-round, I follow the same routine: I’m up early to go to the gym for a workout, or I head outdoors for a long run. Then most of my days are spent at the computer editing or talking with clients on the phone.
I had coffee with a friend of mine in London recently. We talked about our joint desire to make our second half of life both meaningful and productive.
A friend of mine is limping into his 60s with a sense of loss. Loss of youth, energy and significance. I understand all of that and believe that most of us go through a passage where we grieve the younger life we’ve left behind.
Jewelry is weighted with meaning. I dare say, if jewelry could talk, each piece would convey the story of how their home became your personal jewelry drawer.
