How to Declutter Your Home the Quick and Easy Way

One of the best decisions I ever made was to declutter my home. A few years ago, I decided that I had had enough of the clutter in my closets and the boxes in my basement. So, I digitized most of my photos, gave away boxes of clothes to charity and sold my old electronic equipment on eBay. It was the best decision that I ever made! If you are thinking about downsizing – or just want to declutter a bit – I have some tips to help you along the way. Join me as I share the highlights from Karen Kingston’s article, “How to Declutter Your Home, 20-Minutes at a Time.” Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.

Do You Remember Your First Job? What Did it Teach You?

Few experiences influence our lives more powerfully than getting our first job. Most of us don’t stay in our first position for long. That’s probably to be expected. The important thing is that the discipline and sense of pride that each of us gains in our first job lasts forever. Simply put, our first jobs helped us to become the women that we are today. So, this morning, I’d love to ask you about your first work experience. I’d love to know how you got your start in life and what your first job taught you, both in terms of skills and new perspectives on life. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.

Recognizing and Fighting Aging Stereotypes

One of the problems with aging stereotypes is that they have a tendency to become so ingrained in popular culture that we stop looking out for them.

Are there any that you think have an element of truth to them? Which ones are completely false? Let’s discuss this together. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat.
