|Felice Shapiro, Founder/Publisher & Managing Editor|
Felice Shapiro has been an entrepreneur in publishing for her entire career. She grew her multi-title parenting magazine group (Family Publishing Group) and sold it to a conglomerate in London (UAP). As the Founder/Publisher of BA50 in 2011, she created a platform for women at mid-life and publishes work around topics relevant to mid-lifers as they enter their next phase. Her personal journey has given her writing a focus on reinvention and figuring out next acts.
Felice has become a fashion influencer and loves to write about fashion as well as health, goal setting and What’s Next. Felice conducts interviews with start-ups regularly and posts on BA50. Felice taught Entrepreneurship for 5 years at Tufts University and currently serves on their Entrepreneurship Board. She and her fabulous husband Bill split their time between Boston and New York. She loves to spend time with her BA50s sharing conversation while running, hiking, skiing, and after yoga. She is the proud mother of 2 boys.
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 BA50s 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.
Ronna is on sabbatical from BA50 during the 2017-2019 season but is still contributing posts.
