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.

Travel Like a Queen… Even if You Are on a Budget

If there’s one thing that the women in our community love to do, it’s travel. Unfortunately, many of us feel like we don’t have the money to journey to our favorite destinations and, even when we do travel, we usually do it on a budget. Well, today, I want to share some advice from one of our guest bloggers, Liza Dunkel, on how to travel like a queen, even if you are watching every penny. I’ll also share a few of my own travel tips. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today. Your support means so much to me!   Read More

Recognizing and Fighting Aging Stereotypes

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. This is a shame because we can’t fight aging stereotypes unless we recognize them for what they are! So, today, I would like to talk about a few aging stereotypes. 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.

Telling Your Life Story and a Few Words About Myself

Telling Your Life Story and a Few Words About Myself

This might seem a bit strange to hear from a woman who runs a community like Sixty and Me, but, I don’t really enjoy talking about myself. Frankly, it’s so much more enjoyable hearing about all of the wonderful things that YOU are doing! At the same time, one of the most frequent requests that I get from our members is to share a bit more about my past. So, since the theme of today’s Mornings with Sixty and Me is “telling your life story,” I thought that it would be appropriate to also share a few words about myself before asking you to do the same. Join us as we discuss the importance of telling your life story. I’ll kick things off and then I’d like to find out more about all of you! Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today. Your support means so much to me!   Read More

I hope that you will continue to join us every morning. After all, we still have plenty to discuss! Since financial independence is important to each and every one of us, today, I would like to discuss some creative ways to make money after 60. I would also love to get your thoughts on working and saving in retirement. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today.
