“I want you to make one promise to me,” said Brian, my business partner, who also happens to be my brother-in-law. “What’s that?” I asked tentatively.
“When we have thousands and thousands of FOF women coming to the website, you won’t try to become personal friends with every single one.”
Here’s the thing: I love women: Women who have great marriages, careers, style, brains, perseverance, passion, humor, generosity, clarity, perspective, warmth and love. In other words, I love FOF women.
So every time I get a message from a woman who has signed up to be a member of faboverfifty.com, I want to meet her. The messages are extraordinary. They’re real, honest, inspiring, and funny.

“ Two years to the day after I turned fifty, my youngest daughter was in a catastrophic car accident, which left her a paraplegic. I had been let go from my job as a pharmaceutical rep. Being a single mom with this happening in my life was really tough. But I am a FOF woman with three amazing daughters. We have always been close and this incident really solidified our bond.“It has now been almost two years since the accident. I have embarked on a new career, studied and got all of my insurance licenses. I persevered. I have been the strength behind my girls. We have a passion for life. One day they, too, will be faboverfifty, for we truly know what it means to be strong and bond.” —Charlene, Connecticut
