For most of us, life after 60 is filled with opportunity, laughter and happiness. Unfortunately, it is also filled with its share of tragedy. Some of us will have to deal with the loss of our spouse. Others will watch their children going through difficult times. The majority of us will be touched by illness in some way.

Many women in their 60s feel invisible. When we walk down the street or into a crowded room, it’s easy to feel like nobody notices us, especially men. There is probably some truth to this. After all, our youth obsessed culture seems to place a much higher value on physical appearance than acquired wisdom.
For most of us, the decades of our lives are a blur. Looking back, it’s easy to feel mixed emotions. On the one hand, we have lived exciting and varied lives.
If there’s one thing that I know about life after 60 it’s that you can do anything you set your mind to. In my case, spring is here and it’s time for me to dust off my sneakers and get back in shape.
Women in their 60’s are redefining what it means to be a midlife woman! Forget the stereotypes. If you ask the 43,000 members in our Sixty and Me community, you fill find that they are adventurous, curious, and passionate about living a life that is healthy, wealthy and independent. In fact we are redefining everything from A-Z!
Over the past year, while building the Sixty and Me community, I have had the pleasure to meet and learn from some amazing, inspirational women. Their writing has made me think and their dedication to women’s issues has inspired me.
I remember the day I resigned from my corporate job and transitioned to the life of an entrepreneur. My passion was to focus full time on building Sixty and Me, a community for women over 60. I wanted to reinvent my life and find a more flexible work style.
