About Us

When Mimi Met Stacy…Well, they haven’t exactly broken bread together. Yet.

Mimi lives in Boston and Stacy in New Jersey.

Mimi assumed the position of Editor for a well-known site and was looking for fresh content and new writers. Through a Google search, she came across The Widow Wears Pink, and found herself enthralled by Stacy’s story. Mimi reached out to Stacy through her blog and asked if she would be interested in writing for her site. Stacy happily agreed and wrote a few different articles for Mimi.

They soon formed a friendly working relationship. They had a great connection and seemed to “get” the same things.

When Mimi decided to leave her position, she immediately sent an email to let Stacy know. In the same email, Mimi mentioned that she was thinking of going out on her own to start a new site.

A light bulb turned on in Stacy’s head – she had been looking for a new opportunity. She offered to partner with Mimi to create something fresh together.

They both believed that there was a space to fill; a site for women who were moving forward to a new chapter in their lives. Not necessarily getting older, but looking towards change of some kind.

Living The Second Act was born.

The Second Act can range from the death of a spouse or starting a new career to becoming an empty nester or even getting a makeover.

Growth and change can be exciting, happy, scary, or even sad. We will discuss it all in Living the Second Act. We look forward to having you join us on the ride.
