The lights are low, classic French Bistro music fills the air, the energy in the room is electric. Mingling in the crowd of over 40 female entrepreneurs, we spot a pretty brunette in a vibrant blue dress. Then, in walks a dynamic blond gal with a sunny orange top. Next up we see a stylish woman in a simple black ensemble punctuated with an unexpected fuchsia, faux fur scarf! We’re surrounded by friendly, smiling faces eager to partake in the “meet and greet.” Oh goodness, this certainly isn’t your ordinary networking group! The Glam Gals have just stepped into the first meeting of the Los Angeles chapter of Over 40 Females.
Ladies, this group rocks!
Founded in New York City by the amazing Judy Goss, Over 40 Females has expanded to 10 chapters nationwide and still growing. After working as an editor at More Magazine for several years, Judy could see that women over 40 are powerful and confident and when you put them all in a room together, good things start to happen. So, two years ago she took a leap of faith, left her corporate job and Over 40 Females was launched. She saw a need for a place where women who are changing careers or trying to grow their business can meet up, connect and help each other. As Judy likes to say, “Connect, encourage and inspire! ”
