Join CoveyClub

Connect for work or friendship

Navigating a health challenge, aging, the empty nest, a job downsizing or loss, a relationship disruption (divorce, widowhood), even the ups and downs of elder care, alone is hard. It's easier when you have a posse of smart, caring, kick-ass women who've been there, done that, on your side.

CoveyConnect is our private home on the Mighty Networks app for Nest with Covey and Rule the Roost members. It's where we share private, intimate discussions about the challenges and joys of life but without worries about a system selling your information. The app is private and secure and takes no ads. There is no scraping of your data or following you to other sites on the web.

Come here to ask questions, find answers, create meetups with intelligent, active, involved women like you. Join CoveyConnect by joining Nest with Covey.

Introduce Yourself
It all starts with your story, and we know you’ve got a great one! Fill out your profile page (it won’t take more than 5 minutes, promise) so we can help introduce you to other members.

Connect with Like-minded Professionals
At CoveyConnect, we take Madeleine Albright’s advice that “there’s a special place in Hell for women who don’t help other women” to heart. Check out our member categories to broaden your network. Poke around and meet members in your current profession or find friends working in the field in which you might want to reinvent.

See What Everyone’s Talking About
One thing that makes CoveyConnect special is the ability to follow topics so that you can see the conversations that interest you most. Post your own take or message another member privately if you’re interested in what they have to say. You can even open up your own room and invite members to join you to discuss a special topic or set up a local chapter. It's up to you!

"I have been a member of many networking groups but Covey Club continues to be remarkable. Yes, I have met people who seek to do business with me or refer business to me. And yes, I have met people who share my values and the promise of meaningful relationships. What makes Covey remarkable in my opinion is its member's commitment to growing and life learning. Fostering that learning, they have created a safe space that allows everyone to express themself freely. All the more remarkable in these times of polarization. And all this a wonderful reflection of Lesley, the Founder, who asks hard questions, shares vulnerable answers and wipes her tears along with the rest of us."

Michele Risa, M.A., C.B.C.A. CEO, CollaborativeSolutions.Global

"Thank you for hosting the best job interview discussion and speaker (for mature job seekers), I have had the privilege of attending.

I look forward to participating in many more interesting discussions in the future!"

Ellie Epstein

"I'm so grateful to CoveyClub for all of the great connections that I've made! Lesley recommended an executive producer/media trainer during one of Covey's "Positive Mornings" sessions and I was able to connect with her on LinkedIn shortly after. Not only did this producer take the time to talk with me by phone after we connected online but she was so approachable that it felt like I was talking to a friend. She was also receptive to me pitching my podcast to her for one of her (major!) clients as a potential guest. (And guess what--she said YES!)"
