Karen and Pat launched the second half of their working lives in 2005 becoming Internet Entrepreneurs. As Baby Boomers, they’re on a path of enlightenment and growth for themselves, and are looking to give back – not only to other savvy Boomers, but to their children’s generation also. Karen’s detail and design flair along with Pat’s strong business background and writing skills make a great combination that has allowed them to partner successfully in many projects.
Together they founded Boomers in Motion, LLC, the parent company for all of their internet ventures. In 2007, they co-authored and published their first e-book, “Busy Moms: The Heart and Soul of a Home”, a wonderful idea-filled collection that helps women take care of themselves in all their varied roles: busy mom, spouse, worker, sister, daughter, friend and partner.
Karen and Pat have been active members of the very successful Women’s Group since 1997 and have seen it grow into a cohesive unit that has a life of its own. You can read about their best tips and learn how to start your own women’s group in their 2011 released e-book and paperback, “Essentials for Starting a Women’s Group”. In addition is their companion book, “A Topic for Everyone”, a comprehensive list of topics and activities to stimulate creative women’s group meetings.
For the greater women’s community, they started a Busy Bites newsletter that has grown into this blog, Women’s Group Busy Bites, where they come together with women from around the world to discuss women’s groups and women’s issues.
Enjoy and come back often!
