Ever in a situation where you now have the spare time to spend with friends but failed to build the network until now in your 40’s due to career and raising children? What advice would you give?

    • I think the best way to network for friendship at this point is to take classes of interest like: exercise, cooking, art, pottery, martial arts or join a group like a hiking club, church bible study group, reading group, bunko group..... I don’t know what’s available in your area but it’s a start.  

      Best to you!

    • I found myself in the same boat as you when my kids left for college, causing me to invent a women's group. I ran a $1.75 ad in the Boulder, Colorado newspaper. WOW: Women on the Way was formed and from that came a fabulous, life-changing best-friendship. You never know what’s around the corner if you open yourself up! Enjoy this terrific, albeit kinda’ scary, time of life!

    • It is definitely a new leaf in life when the kids grow up and leave the nest! You realize that now you have a ton of opportunity to learn new things, accept invitations for social outings and develop friendships like never before, and believe it or not - all with a little patience. This year I joined a nationwide run/walk group through Fleet Feet, and just taking it one step at a time.
