I just received an email from a friend who is in the process of writing a book aimed at women over the age of 40. I think this is a great way to speak out in a positive forum. If you are interested please continue reading.
Dear Potential Contributor,
Note: Please feel free to forward this note to anyone in your network who fits this demographic. Thank you - the more the merrier!
My name is Sharron Richardson and I am working on a book aimed at women aged 40+. The subject is living your life with passion and deliberate intent at middle-age. As founder of Fabulous 40+ West End Women, a social group for 40+ women, as well as the creator of www.fashionista2passionista.com, a blog designed to raise awareness of the beauty of living life on purpose, I have enjoyed the privilege of connecting with many women in this demographic which has, in turn, allowed me to see beyond my own middle-age experience.
I am working with a Knowledge Management Specialist to create a survey to send to appropriate recipients in order to obtain feedback on a number of key concerns at this age and stage which are unique to women. I invite you to participate in this process. Rest assured any feedback you provide would be strictly confidential. The survey will include questions regarding topics such as happiness, financial security, confidence, wellness, relationships, motivation, sexuality, body image, and more.
If you would like to participate in this survey, please send a valid email address to email@example.com. Feel free to include in your email any topic not listed above that you believe to be a concern to our demographic so that we can incorporate it into the survey content. Again, no need to send anything other than your email address, and if you participate in the survey, no identification will be required unless you choose to provide it.
Deadline for responses is Tuesday, March 8th, which is the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day. We hope to have the survey ready for distribution by the end of March and you will be notified via emaiil so that you can participate. I will publishing the survey link to my network, of which you are obviously a part, but responding to this email gives you the unique opportunity to suggest survey content, as well as pass it along to as many contacts as you can in order to expand the data pool.
Thank you for your consideration. And remember, it's your turn (to help, to live, to grow)!
I am planning a trip to Europe in April 2014 because of my research. My daughter and son-in-law will be going with me. I will be spending a week in England. A few years ago I found out where my family came from in…"
