I'm Honey!

As a woman who has lived through many passages and learned through my larger than life experiences (positive and negative), I’ve discovered how to take a big empowering bite out of life.

Oh My, Ponder This:

Bringing Together Women After 50 With MOXIE!

I invite you, darlings, to sign up for MOXIE! on HoneyGood.com. MOXIE! is a private network within HoneyGood.com.

MOXIE! will be the place for you to have meet-ups with other women in our private community. There will be different types of discussion groups for you to join to exchange ideas and photos.

I know without a doubt that MOXIE! will be a hit for every woman who joins from the shyest to the personality plus. After all, there is not a woman alive that does not have some form of MOXIE!

Women need women. I know this without a doubt. Why?

Over two years ago, I held an impromptu meet-up in our home in California. A young man in advertising was interested in learning the interests of women over 50+. I quickly made some phone calls, and a few days later seven women friends appeared at our door. It proved to be an emotionally charged meeting and a turning point in my life. Talk about the unexpected, darlings.

Sitting in our group was a woman who suddenly said, “I feel invisible.” Darlings, the first thought that came to my mind was Casper the Ghost because the word invisible was not part of my vocabulary or lifestyle. The entire group was not on my page and piped in that they felt invisible, too. I will tell you later on in the story why they felt this way.

How the women felt.

I know this sounds a bit drama-rama, but truth be told, I was suddenly haunted by a word I never used. The definition of invisible: being treated as if unable to be seen; was very depressing.

For the next few weeks, the word played havoc with my mind as I questioned myself on how I felt about myself as a woman well past 50. I talked to myself on my alone walks with Orchid, at the time, asking, “Did I feel invisible in the shoe department of Barneys where younger women were dominant or in a restaurant walking with my husband to our table?”

I breathed a sigh of relief when I could honestly answer on my quiet walks with my delicious Orchid, “No.”


Their feelings may sound superficial and vain, but it would be wrong to think that for my friends are women of substance.

The fact of the matter is that when a woman believes she has lost her looks, she may begin to feel invisible.

The little seed that grew into MOXIE!

About three weeks later, after tossing my thoughts around and imagining the positiveness of a group of women gathering together regularly, I made up my mind to phone my women friends and invite them to join a meet-up at my home to share thoughts on topics that come into play after the age of 50+. Not one woman turned me down.

And so, my first group was started. It is beyond successful because every woman leaves my home happier than when they walked in. Why?

Some of the women help the other women with what appears to be an unsolvable situation, and they are happy they could be of help. And, those that need help walk out with a plan and some relief.

In a few months, we will begin our third season as a group. No one has left, excluding those who moved.

This past week I had another group meet-up in our apartment in Chicago. It was a multigenerational group or women, ranging from 28 to 97 years of age. Two and 1/2 hours later the group of women were still exchanging ideas and when they left…they wanted the group to continue!

The essence of this second meet-up proved beyond a reasonable doubt that women need women. The exchange between the women, of all ages, was non-stop. The older women helped the younger, and the younger women helped the older.

My two groups are a dream come true, and for that reason, shortly, I plan to help others start up groups or possibly have HoneyGood.com events where large numbers of us can meet and discuss our issues as women 50+. Darlings, hang tight. I believe in making my dreams come true.

MOXIE! online will be the start of meet-up groups. Many of us are familiar with one another by name and messaging and replies. Now it is time to unite as a community and talk with one another with some MOXIE!

The goal of MOXIE!

    Great idea! I recently moved from Wisconsin to Tennessee…not sure this is where I should be. Would enjoy hearing from other women who have made a big change they are uncertain is working.

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      I am sure you will receive much advice. If you have not signed up, please go to the homepage on https://www.honeygood.com and you will see a place to do just that. My advice. Give yourself some time. I have moved and I learned I had to put myself out there because people are so busy with their lives. My goal for Moxie is to have groups with different interests. I may lead one myself. Warmly, Honey

  2. Donna says:

    Honey, I just turned 65 and feel invisible at certain times. Would love to join your Moxie group! Loved this story!

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      I would love to have you. You are not alone. Many women feel invisible and all the time. Just go to Honeygood.com. On the home page scroll down and you will see the sign up for Moxie. We are going to have a great time as a community on MOXIE. Warmly, Honey

  3. Terre Shankle says:

    I recently retired (age 66) and moved down to Charleston, SC, where I only have a few family members, who are busy with their everyday lives. I would love to meet women of similar age, who are interested in meeting and friendship. Moxie sounds ideal!

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      Moxie will be ideal and I also suggest joining a church group, a book club or movie club, a work out class or another type of club. Take your time and make the right choice for your happiness. Warmly, Honey

  4. Randi McAllister says:

    I don’t think I have moxie all the time, but I know I have it because I survived a severe brain aneurysm 10 years ago at age 57.

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      You have real Moxie and I am glad you are well. I think every woman has her own style. Her own Moxie. Warmly, Honey

  5. I was just forwarded the recent article in the NYT and love being introduced to MOXIE! I run workshops for women, 50+, making their way to a new life beyond work and appreciate the idea of inter- generational connections. We all learn from each other and this kind of intentional connecting is needed in our culture. Let me know if there is a chapter in San Diego, California, or perhaps I can start one. Great work~

  6. Gretchen Schulert says:

    I just read the NYT article, and my mind is spinning at the possibility of building such a group in my Chicago apartment building. Almost 500 apartments…….all ages………I KNOW there are women who long to find more connections with other women. If anybody has thoughts/ideas on how to begin I want to hear them! Thanks.

  7. Harriet Shohet says:

    Hi Honey
    You and I had a bit on on e-conversation a few weeks ago when I sent you my email address and phone number. You had mentioned that you might be starting a North Shore group – I would love to be part of it- also you suggested we might meet for a coffee one AM or afternoon. Would love to hear back from you

    • Susan "Honey" Good says:

      I did not forget you. I have been waiting to hear from another woman who wants to start a group and my young granddaughter just found out she has thyroid cancer. I am flying to Arizona for a week to be with my family. Hang in there. I just sent an email to the other woman. Warmly, Honey

  8. Cip says:

    I’m 80 and my significant other died recently. My daughter and SIL live down the road 2 miles. I feel invisible in most groups and I have lost my way or should I say “my mojo”. I recently down-sized to a townhouse and have worked directly with my contractors remodeling, so you could say “I still have my faculties!” I’ve been pondering about the rest of my time. I do not want to depend on my daughter

    • Susan Good says:

      My advice is to live and enjoy each day. You have no idea what the future holds. Maybe your daughter will have to depend on you! The point is to live each day to its fullest. 80 is the new 60! Warmly, Honey
