Lets all join together on 21st Oct 2021 and start the Midlife Women's Revolution
This is an annual awareness day created by Moira Doherty to celebrate women in midlife similar to, but more focused than International Women's Day due to the celebration of a particular age group and stage in life where women struggle with acceptance and sometimes feel forgotten and ignored.
This year we are marking the day with a series of online presentations via an exciting exhibitor platform, to help midlife women, find their voice, take control of their finances and to give them the tools to generate their own income in 2022.
The day will be all about learning new skills, or enhancing the things you already know to enable everyone to begin their own successful business or scale up the business they already have.
The guest speakers will present different aspects of starting and running a successful business or side hustle. The theme for the day is "The Business Tool Kit" and we aim to make sure that every aspect of the business journey is covered off. From mindset to navigating your company set up on the companies house website.
Keep checking the group for updates and to find out how you can get involved.
AS NEW DATA REVEALS THAT NEARLY HALF AS MANY WOMEN START BUSINESSES IN MIDLIFE COMPARED TO MEN
As recent figures highlight that nearly half (46%) of women are likely to start a business in mid-life compared to men, a group of successful female entrepreneurs have launched a new social movement #newlifeatmidlife in the run up to International Women in Mid-life Day and annual Expo this October 21st to help, support and encourage budding entrepreneurs across the UK.
The figures show the huge mid-life gender divide as less than a 1 million women over 40 are now self-employed, 46% less than men of this age, and millions have significantly smaller pensions and little control over their finances.
Next month is International Women in Midlife Day and the team behind this important day have launched a new social movement, #newlifeatmidlife to inspire, support and empower women over 40. They are encouraging women throughout the world to support the movement and share their experiences of midlife and tag any inspirational women who have started a new life over the age of 40.
The initial concept came from Business Mentor, Moira Doherty (63) who is a huge campaigner for support and recognition of ‘Women in Mid-life’ and this has evolved into the creation of the international awareness day and Expo. As Moira explains: “These figures really highlight the huge gender gap and how little support there is for women who are over 40. For so many they feel that their role is wife, mother, daughter, sister, granny, carer rather than independent businesswoman. They don’t feel they have anything to contribute to society and this is why this movement is so important.”
Moira added, “Creating a modern cultural image for women in Mid-life is good for society, good for the economy and good for women of all ages.”
Moira has been an entrepreneur for many years, has been campaigning and supporting female entrepreneurs in their ‘mid-life’ to become successful businesswomen and gain financial freedom and security for their futures. She is the founder of the WOWS Collective (Wonderful Older Women Succeeding) and is passionate about leaving a legacy that will support women to create the life they desire and one that makes them feel valued for years to come.
