Felice Shapiro on getting better after 50
Felice Shapiro needed an escape from the shadow of a daunting transition. At 47, Shapiro had just lost her husband and was about to send her youngest of two sons off to college. Shapiro found herself seeking solace in her friends. “Women tend to find comfort by sharing stories, connecting, supporting each other,” said Shapiro. Inspired by that notion, Shapiro launched betterafter50.com, an online magazine encouraging women to find a second wind mid-life – and share experiences along the way.
