A Community For Women After 50, Meet MOXIE!October 21, 2018
Introducing a community for women after 50, MOXIE! Moxie is a slang word for attitude. Attitude is a viewpoint, a feeling, a stance. Every woman has MOXIE! It is her spirit, her courage, her energy, her backbone, her skill, her pride and her daring. She may have a quiet strength to face difficulty or a smile that lights up a room. Every woman has her own personal moxie running through her veins.
That is why I named our new community for women after 50, soon to be unveiled on HoneyGood.com, MOXIE! It is a feel-good word and that is what we women should aspire to from 50 years of age to 100 and beyond, God-willing.
I have not met a woman who does not want to share her insights, her skills, her trials, and tribulations, with other women, strangers included. Two women sitting next to one another on a flight usually know each other’s life history by the time the flight lands! My pooch, America, would not be snuggled next to me if a woman I had never laid eyes on hadn’t asked me overhearing a conversation on a flight to Chicago, “What breed of dog did you have?” Our discussion led me to her friend who wound up helping me find my new pooch, named America. Darlings, we are connectors because we have MOXIE!
A Community for Women After 50: The MOXIE! Meet Ups
From experience, I know that meet up groups of women work. My last meet up was in our home. I invited women from the ages of 28 to 97. There were nine of us, and most of the women had never met. After five minutes there was non-stop chatter for the next 2 1/2 hours! Age did not matter. Conversation mattered.
I know many of you by name, and I have a sense of many of your personalities because I so enjoy replying to your comments.
I would love to know about your careers, hobbies, and interests. What group(s) would you like to join?
I do not know how many of you are career women. I do not know your professions. Would you share?
I do not know if you are committed gardeners, world travelers, foodies, artists, readers and moviegoers, family psychologists, involved in wellness, understand the financial questions women over 50 wonder about and are afraid to ask. In short, I would love to hear more about what gives you MOXIE!
Would You Like To Participate in A Community for Women After 50?
I am curious if you might be interested in becoming a leader of a group on MOXIE!? You would choose your area of expertise and short volunteer periods of time. I do not know if you are looking for a new endeavor to fill a little bit of your time. Are you skilled in technology? These things and more, I would love to know. Please, do tell!
MOXIE! will work like Facebook but this community for women after 50 will be private to the HoneyGood.com site. As a group leader, you would set up your own group page within the MOXIE! community, select a topic and title and then invite others who are interested in your topic to engage with you about your topic on your own group page within Honey Good. Before our launch in mid-to-late November, we’ll send you a short “how to video” and a few brief rules.
I am so glad to be able to inform you that we have a long wait list of subscribers for MOXIE! from which you can draw members to your particular interest group, and you’re welcome to invite your friends, relatives, business contacts and whomever else you’d like.
What Will Our Community For Women After 50 Be Like?
It will be organic engagement, and you will be the leader and catalyst for member engagement. You can post photos, too, just like Facebook and it won’t be difficult.
I love being the leader of a group. A good leader is warm, open, interested, dedicated and loves bringing women together to ‘talk.’ Talking creates sharing. Sharing allows women to grow and solve and learn through interaction with a community of women after 50. It is a win-win for all. And, it is so special because sometimes a woman is a helper and sometimes she needs the help and advice of the other women in the group.
Just to let you know, I am going to lead a group. I am very excited!
