I attended the More Magazine
Reinvention Convention in NYC last week and I've got to tell you, the
above quote rings true. It was inspiring to be among several hundred
midlife women who are interested in remaining educated and empowered.
Topics covered pertained to finance, health/fitness (presented by our
own NABBW expert Dr. Pamela Peeke), reinvention in the middle years,
beauty, and fashion. I'm sharing quotes and tid-bits offered by Jean
Chatzky, Isaac Mizrahi, Carly Fiorina, Lisa Johnson, Tim Quinn (Armani), Cybill Shepherd and many more in our NABBW Weekly Updates. Please email me if you're interested in attending the Third Annual in 2009. I think it would be great fun to attend as a group.

like they're cool. I've seen them. I'm sure you have too.
- Sheri' and Jennifer address midlife entrepreneurs, while Nan shares how three generations can get along in the workplace.

- Prill writes about being silent, which is something I thing all of need to do; be still and take time for self.
Because some of our readership are midlife entrepreneurs, I want to share a new resource offered by the Small Business Administration.
The SBA recently unveiled a Web site for the baby boomer entrepreneur.
It provides excellent information for launching and growing small

New Mexico Soap
Black is an entrepreneur who wants to make the world a cleaner place,
one bar of soap at a time. She, along with her husband Dave, is
the co-founder and owner of New Mexico Soap in Southern New Mexico.
business started out the way many entrepreneurs begin, as a hobby. When
her step-daughter announced her engagement, Diane had the creative idea
to make unique wedding favors; guest-sized soap in shapes of Victorian
fans, little champagne glasses, and dancing bride and groom. They were
a big hit; the wedding guests went nuts over them and New Mexico Soap was off and running!
and friends started to place orders for this unparalleled soap so their
business expanded from a dining room hobby to a soap shop and separate
wood shop. Wholesaling first to local gift stores, then nationwide,
increased business as visitors to New Mexico searched for souvenirs and
special mementoes from the locals. Their booth can be found weekly, on
Wednesdays and Saturdays, at the Las Cruces, NM Farmer's and Craft
native of the East Coast, former Executive Manager for the Tupperware
Corporation and President's Club Member of Avon, Diane has taken on
many of the attributes the desert and Southwest have to offer. Her
creative ideas began to bubble, as soap began to take on
custom-designed bars in shapes such as chile peppers, Mimbres (Indians)
Ancient Art designs, and the state of New Mexico, among other states
and other Southwest motifs. As evidence that the entrepreneurial mind
does not quit, a middle-of-the-night revelation came to her to use the
regional commodity of pecans, in meal form, as the exfoliating additive
to the soap. After researching the nutritive benefits of the pecan, she
couldn't resist featuring the soap in the shape of a pecan half as it
also acts as a nice massaging bar.
quality ingredients give life to the lather of the soap. A
natural vegetable oil recipe enables the Blacks to produce soap bases
that are 100 percent pure soap which includes the natural by-product of
glycerin, a humectant necessary for moisture retention. Diane states
this is a key difference between their handmade soap and those found
Is being in the soap business
rewarding? Diane whole-heartedly believes it is based on the
testimonials given by her customers. Using natural soaps is so
beneficial to the skin, especially their added product offering of
Pure, Unrefined Shea Butter---food for the skin! At New Mexico Soap you are buying the REAL thing--not just an ingredient or a small amount as an additive. There's more about this on their website, which includes the added plus of quality and competitive pricing of all their products!
asked about all the whimsical ideas for their soap, Diane gives credit
to her husband and her father, the most creative people she knows. The
encouragement and support from family and friends aids New Mexico Soap
in the success it has received thus far. They have also been known to create specialty bars upon request, something in which they pride themselves!
When not soaping, Diane enjoys crossword puzzles, reading inspirational books, the New York Times,
goes to lunch with friends, eats (too much!) Caliches (a local frozen
custard treat), and plays with their fur-babies, which include dogs,
cats and goats. Diane's a true entrepreneur who enjoys hearing that
customers' skin feels SO much better---one bar of soap and an
application of Shea butter at a time!
