Please can you all help me ........

As we all know being 40+ is great in fact it is downright fabulous , we can now look back and realise all the stuff we worried about in our 20's ,30's was irrelevant and now in our 40's we just share and care with those we have met along the way.

We all know each other via Fab40 and it's a place we have made these amazing friendships. I know that there are some of who have become best friends and their husbands have become friends.

Now Fab40 is 4 years old and has connected so many lives in a positive way and given people not just friendships but also they have taken up hobbies or new adventures they never would have thought about via the friendship and support from Fab40 ladies.

So this is the big ask for help can you all comment for me about what you have got from Fab40 so I can use this in PR for the site with the press as Yana needs to raise its profile moving on and journalists just don't get the 40+ woman yet from next year in both the UK and US we will be the dominant age group .......  

I just want to use peoples first name and where they are from with their comment or if your being very generous your full story ......even if it's just to say you enjoyed Cynthia's chocolates or having the travelling bracelet and reading the journal!  

Please help me help Yana who connected us all together .........

Love it

    • Vicki, here’s mine.

      I have always wanted to be an integral part of a close group of women friends my own age (40 and over). And since joining Fabulouly40.com, I am. I know all the women and they know me, we follow each others’ lives and give support and encouragement and, when asked, give advice. We share deep feelings and we share funny moments. When a new person joins the site, she is welcome with open arms. And Yana Berlin, who runs the site, is one of the kindest, most compassionate people I know. Plus, she is “hands on” - writing, commenting, updating, problem-solving, and working hard behind the scenes - so we all have a safe place we can count on every day. Fab40 is the first place I “go“, every day. I love it.

    • I found Fabulously 40 by sheer accident, but it must have been fate. I have been a member since October 2008. Although, I haven’t met anyone personally, but I feel as though I have known many of you a lifetime.
      I have really made great connections here at Fab40. I have friends all over the world, I have purchased beautiful handmade jewelry, had some of the best chocolate you ever possibly want, handmade candles with a scent that will amaze you.
      Besides all the great talents, career advise, personal advise, and all the fun we have, I have made connections and friends here that have changed my life forever.
      Being apart of the Sisterhood of the traveling bracelet was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had the pleasure to be apart of.
      I often wonder if Yana, in the beginning ever thought that this “special place” would become a daily fix for all of us.
      She has opened her heart, home and knowledge to all of us in ways that I couldn’t even imagine.
      Many of these ladies meet up on a regular basis. They fly and travel from near and far to meet each other. That in it’s self is phenomenal.
      I would suggest to anyone at this fabulous time in your life, Fab40 is nothing less than a added bonus in this journey we call life.

    • When I discovered fabulously40.com I was looking for a sense of community with other women in my age group. I live in a part of the world that is away from the U.S. Mainland and I felt very isolated. I joined this site 2 years ago. Since then I’ve made many friends both virtually and in person. There is camaraderie here. We share many aspects of our lives and what it means to be a woman in her forties and beyond. being part of a networking site that spans the globe gives us access to people and resources that we wouldn’t have otherwise. It’s been a truly enriching experience to be a member here.

      And a word about Yana. I had the priviledge of meeting her shortly after I joined. In short order I saw her dedication and caring for the women on this site. She’s here every day keeping information that flows through current, relevant, appropriate and interesting. She has created contests and give aways, she features members who have a product or service to offer, she shows up to as many get togethers as she’s able to, she constantly strives to keep Fabulously40.com evolving, growing and thriving. This is a unique and very special place.

    • As a parent, grandma & teacher, I was deeply honored when in the early teething stages of Fabulous40 & Beyond, Yana Berlin first invited me to pool in my academic and personal expertise on this fantastic site.  

      Right from the first encounter with Yana, I was touched by her dynamism and down-to-earth attitude. Her innate desire to make a positive, invigorating and powerful impact on the women of the world, her genuine compassion and involvement in meaningful causes/interests shines through in all that Yana says or does. Yana’s sincerity and “inner” sense of purpose, adds to her credibility.  

      Fabulous 40 & Beyond has throughout been an enriching experience for me. From the time of my first active involvement to this date, I continue to gain a vast array of knowledge and learn from the experiences of fellow members. This exclusive site has taught us all one thing: Sharing is an important part of living.

      I wish our fantabulous Yana & Fabulous40 every success!

      Gabby

    • I don’t use Fab 40 as much as I would like, but every time I visit and interact with the lovely ladies here I get a really warm response.  This site has a great community feel to it and I enjoy the time I spend here.  I love reading the blogs and seeing what everyone else has been up to in their lives.  I’ve found some great help and tips on how to promote my business. I’m so glad I found this site.
