|Felice Shapiro, Founder and Publisher|
|Philosophically, I believe that we are better after 50 because we choose to be — that’s a rallying cry for me. There’s lots to complain about in life, however I do think that there’s a conscious decision we can make to improve and celebrate our lives and the way we approach mid-life. If we bring our positive energy to this next place, we can really create great things for ourselves and inspire others as well.
That’s why I created betterafter50.com – an on-line magazine for women: Real Women/Real Stories. We publish stories every day about lives at this amazing stage. Our SHE DID IT section celebrates our readers who are making shifts in their lives — our SHE DID IT live events help our readers to take their next steps.
Felice Shapiro is a writer, entrepreneur and publisher. She is the Founder/Publisher of BA50. She also teachers Entrepreneurship at Tufts University. She and her fabulous husband Bill split their time between Boston and New York. She loves to spend time with her BA50′s sharing conversation while running, hiking, skiing, and after yoga. She is the proud mother of 2 boys.
Felice is available to give talks on “Reinvention” and “Creating Your Start-Up/Getting Started” and “Life After 50″
Felice and her business partner Ronna will bring humor and inspiration to your next group or conference.

|Ronna Benjamin, Managing Editor|
|About the time Ronna Benjamin turned 50, she had an epiphany. After 28 years of practicing law, she realized she didn’t want to be a real estate attorney, and jumped into the world of writing. She never looked back. Ronna writes humorously about the things BA50’s are concerned about: adult children, aging parents, illness, anxiety and insomnia, to name a few. Ronna is thrilled to be working with the awesome women at Betterafter50. She is a native Bostonian and loves to spend time with her wonderful husband and three adult children. She also loves to cook, sail, ski, run and bike.|

|Mervett Heyfan, BA50 Marketing Intern|
|Tufts University 2013. Major: Psychology. Minor: Communication and Media Studies. While I may not be BA50, my mother is and living with her has certainly shed some light on the BA50 experience … once I look beyond the motherly yelling, of course. Life goals: I hope to one day work in marketing for a social entrepreneurship based in Central Africa. Oddly specific? Yes, but I think that makes my path all the more realizable.|
