Are you starting an encore career or having a 2nd act at work? Tell us about your careers: Current, changing, retiring? What is it like to be in your fifties and still working, looking for work, changing jobs or retiring?
What about the job choices you've made so far? To work while raising kids? Not to work outside the home while raising kids? Regrets? Things you relished or learned? Fears in returning to work.
We are looking for stories on unique investing strategies aimed at women. Articles that might inspire and teach women who have never invested to get over their fears of the market. General stories about financial concerns, like living on a fixed budget, how to age with financial security? Any advice or stories about adventures in investing or starting a business and new jobs, both success & failures.
Words of wisdom or personal stories. We want to know it all and make sure women are talking about this to change up the landscape and make it an easier transition.
500 to 1200 words of original and previously unpublished high quality, engaging storytelling. Please include a short bio with your submission. It does not need to list all of your accomplishments or publications, just the ones that are most meaningful to you, or that an audience of incredible women in their fifties would find insightful. Feel free to list blogs and/or websites. Since we are not a paying market yet, we'd be happy to give your other work a little social media boost in exchange for the work you publish with us on Fiftiness.com.
If you want to tell us your story in a podcast, please do! But see Podcast Category for specific guidelines for audio and video storytelling.
