Good morning, darlings. I have had an exceptionally challenging time setting up the MOXIE! private network. I survived ‘on my feet’ with a smile on my face because of dedicated help and I am, through and through, a woman with MOXIE!
I must compliment, congratulate and thank the 115 women who have signed up for the free MOXIE! Private Network because of their tenacity to try and understand and tackle its technology. Thank you, darlings and do stay involved. The best is yet to come, this week.
I realized after MOXIE! went live in BETA testing that some parts of the tech were too hard for me to master. I reached out to Susan Berman Hammer, a honey bee, and Akaisha, a Honey Good contributor, to help write a new set of more precise instructions. I also added a new page with the mission statement, a live welcome video, and other surprises. I want to thank Birdie de Quay and Ines Grzeslo for everything from A to Z, including content, technology, production, patience, podcasting, love, caring, and high performance.
I KNOW THAT GROUPS WORK. I KNOW THAT WOMEN NEED WOMEN
As mentioned, there are 115 women (oh have they shown MOXIE!) who have joined MOXIE!, my free private network group for Honey Good women and their friends. My dream, which I hope will be become my reality, is for MOXIE! to grow into a private and massive network of better than 50 women who will join groups of their choosing or start their own group and meet their MOXIE! sisters through conversation. Groups work! Women need women.
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, 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!
This tiger originally belonged to my Grandmother, clearly, she too had 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! works 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.
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.
