You Are Invited to Join Cool Retired Women on Face Book.
Why? Because you are a cool retired woman
and I bet you’re looking for Community right now!
This is my seventh month (29+ weeks!) of isolation … self-quarantine … stay-at-home. Like you, I’m retired and that means I’m not working a job from home. No co-worker interaction for me. Just me and my husband 24/7, for over 215+ days so far!! Luckily, we enjoy each other, he makes me laugh, and we hug. I’m a hugger! Thank God for his hugs. You know what I mean??
Oh yes, we are quarantined but I do go for walks on our currently desolate streets. I almost hope someone will walk or bicycle past me, (waaaay on the other side of the sidewalk, of course!) so I can smile at a stranger, and say “Hello!”. I long for the satisfaction of social interaction, from a safe distance. 😊 I’m going to jump up and down, yell from the rooftop, and hug everyone when this thing is over!!
I bet you feel the same way.
Do you know what has kept me sane, and smiling, and connected, and feeling involved in life beyond the walls of my home?
My Face Book group! It is a community of over 11,300 like-minded cool retired women who live all around the world. Women just like me. Just like you!
Mary recently commented:
Thank you, Mickie, for creating this Cool Retired Women's group. When I'm on Face Book I often scroll quickly past posts but I always stop and read Cool Retired Women's posts! and comments. There are always good questions and comments that are always positive. Thank you ❤️
In this time of isolation … self-quarantine … stay-at-home, all I have to do is go on Face Book, and click on Cool Retired Women! I immediately have: ** access to online friends who are excited to interact with me
** fun and inspiring posts to read,
** friends sharing pictures of their fur babies, their companions in quarantine,
** conversations to be involved in,
**being a part of a safe, caring, online sisterhood,
** like-minded women sharing their joys, fears, sadness about not seeing their grandkids,
** wondering if they made the right decision to retire,
** griping and rejoicing about being stuck in the house with their spouse,
** real-life discussions about issues that I’m dealing with, too.
Here’s an example of a recent post:
Had yearly blood work: total 253, LDL 152, non HDL 178. Doc says statin. Y’all are gonna think I’m silly but the first thing I thought; I need to ask the girls on Cool Retired Women. Didn’t realize how much I value your opinion till this morning. Anyone on one? Rest of blood work ok. (she had over 100 responses) <3
Sound like a Community you’d like to be a part of?
I think you’ll love it as much as I do!
Cool Retired Women Face Book page was started on September 1, 2019. It quickly grew to several hundred women, I think in large part because of the name, which is very Cool! Haven’t you always been, or wanted to be, Cool??
Here’s your chance … you are a Cool Retired Woman!
The name came to me Out-of-the-Blue!! My sister, who lives in Phoenix, retired from her corporate job on August 31, 2019 and I contacted our recently retired sister in law in Chicago to tell her “Sandi became a Cool Retired Woman like us!” I don’t know where the words came from, but they rolled right off my tongue! Voila!! I started the Cool Retired Women’s page the next day!
Soon, I was told that I needed a private group rather than just a page. So, on September 12, 2019 I formed the Cool Retired Women private group.
In the first 12 months, the group grew to over 10,000 Members!! Cool Retired Women from around the world check in with each other daily…the group enjoys over 300 comments a day!! And, the group continues to grow, daily.
Several Cool Retired Women Members recently suggested I form a paid group, a somewhat more elite private group of Cool Retired Women. I’m launching that now! For just $10.00 a month you can become a Member of "The Sister's Circle".
Members of the Cool Retired Women’s Club will enjoy all the interaction I’ve described, plus special programs such as:
** Twice-Weekly live videos addressing personal growth/personal development topics applicable to aging, retirement, creating a re-fired lifestyle, and maintaining positive, upbeat and inspiring attitudes.
** Weekly “Working Women Fridays” segment every Friday. Members may post links to your webpage, Etsy store, MLM and Network Marketing information, blogs, or your Amazon book pages/stores. Members supporting Members; that’s what it’s all about, right?
** Monthly live-video interviews with professionals discussing issues and topics relative to retired women. Mindsets, body and physical changes, emotional rollercoaster during adjustment to retirement, Medicare issues, coping with being a caretaker, how to embrace life change, and many other subjects will be discussed.
** Monthly Zoom Meet-ups for Members only. Get to know each other, and talk together about interesting topics.
** Monday morning exercise class on Facebook Live. Build muscle, improve balance, and have a lot of fun! The weekly classes are facilitated by a licensed and certified exercise coach who specializes in working with retired women!
The current Membership group is called "Sister's Circle". Join us today!
