What our members are saying

“Give this a whirl! You will find lots of other women who are or have been there, and you will see others who have found unique or surprising ways to create the next chapter of their lives.”

– Sheila S.

“I loved the kinship and the acceptance I felt from a group of women I didn’t previously know! It’s a welcome change from what’s going on in the world and so precious.”

Annette G.

“Surrounding oneself with likeminded women is the best way to feel supported while moving towards our goals. While our dreams may be different, our struggles are similar. Connecting with women who hear you and support you, is life changing.”
