Who We Are

We are creating a community of people in our 40s, 50s, and 60s. We are supporting each other as we progress, excel, and use our life experiences and earned expertise to do amazing things.

While we love travel and leisure, they do not define us. While we strive to be healthy, searching for anti-aging procedures doesn't preoccupy us.

We are here to change the world for the better by being true to the highest principles, living life to the fullest, and reaching out to serve others.


  • Confident
  • Radiant
  • Excellent
  • Dauntless
  • Optimistic
  • Successful

We have earned the right to tell the truth that we are powerful and pretty damn awesome.
