Now in my 76th year, I love being "reFired"!
Certainly, it's NOT vintage retirement. This chapter includes family, fun, focused purpose (nonprofit ambassador and mentor), friends, and fitness (body, mind, spirit, and money).
I'm still penning pieces about widows and money, while focusing on legacy writing--stories, poems, and letters. I continue speaking at selected conferences and college events. Plus, I help charitable organizations grow their endowments.
Since my guidebook for widows was published (about 80,000 copies in circulation now), I've moved forward in many ways. So can you after a major transition such as widowhood. Thanks to professionals and friends assisting my "widowed sisters." I hope you find tools and articles on my site interesting.
