The Retired Moms Only idea came to me because, while all the Mommy blogs are great (wish I had them when raising my children), there is a mom demographic that is being overlooked. These are moms with children who have left the nest and are about to leave the nest. These are moms who have become grandmothers. While I know that moms never really retire, the role of mother changes when the children leave the nest or just get too big to need mom that much any more. Retired moms are put into a position where they have to re-evaluate their roles. Some are fortunate enough to play the new role as a grandmother, but what does a retired mom do when the grandchildren are not available? Where does life pick up from there?
That is how I plan to use Inbox Magazine retiredmomsonly.com website & blog. I want to hear from Moms age 50+. What are your passions? Are you still working? If so, what type of work do you do? What are your needs? What types of information do you need to make your life easier? Obviously, retired moms would like information related to their grandchildren or even for the grown children.
I will use myself as an example. I am a mother of three children. I have two sons and a daughter. My older son, age 38, is married with an adopted daughter. My daughter, age 37, is married with two sons. My younger son is 22, unmarried and finishing his education. The bad economy caused me to lose two jobs within one year. I am 57-years-old and with very little chance of getting hired by any employer. That situation has placed me into a position of starting my own public relations, marketing and advertising agency. I am meeting many new challenges throughout this transition. The success of the agency is all in God’s hands. I will definitely need spiritual help with this. I have lived with multiple sclerosis for 19 years, but I have been very blessed with my health condition. It presents a few minor challenges, but I worked out solutions to these challenges. I live in an Arkansas rural area. I own an Akita named Suki. I am married.
With all that said, I would be interested in stories about changing careers after 50; entrepreneurship, how I can relate to my teenage grandchildren; lifestyle; hobbies; passions; relationships; healthcare issues for women over 50; pet ownership; financial security; etc. I am looking for professionals who are willing to contribute to this Inbox Magazine and serve on a panel. The panel would need to be made up of volunteers.
All I can say at this point is to look out for the launch of my Inbox Magazine Retired Moms Only. It’s still a work in progress, but I will be posting ideas & stories through my R Squared Communications WordPress site.
