“I’ve always thought the Monopoly board is a good analogy for life. For women 45 and above, whether we live on Park Avenue in New York or rural Middle America, we have reached our Park Place.” -Brenda Coffee, CEO and founder of 1010 Park Place
When Brenda approached me about becoming a style contributor to 1010 Park Place, I was flattered and honored. I don’t consider myself a writer by any stretch, as I told her. But I accepted her offer, and I have to say, I’m loving it! It’s a great challenge. I’m trying to stretch myself into areas where I’m a little uncomfortable. To date, I have contributed three style pieces and I’m looking forward to many more. So, make sure to pop on over to 1010 Park Place to read my piece, White Out, which is all about styling the color white.
Before 1010 Park Place, Brenda, because of her own experience with breast cancer, started a blog called Breast Cancer Sisterhood. Her blog, which was the only survivorship resource for families, was repeatedly voted the top breast cancer blog. During this time, she realized that women over 45 are the most underserved demographic in history, yet the most powerful. So, she decided to start a broader platform, 1010 Park Place.
1010 Park Place is a place where women can go to learn about the most up-to-date content on just about any topic, from interviews with inspiring women, to fashion, to finance, to food, to divorce, to sex and health. She has brought together some of the most influential 45+ voices, including models, doctors, business owners, producers, fashionistas and many more. Kim Alexis, one of the world’s most iconic supermodels, and Nick Dawes, an expert appraiser on the Antiques Roadshow PBS series, are two of her main contributors.
Brenda, also, has a personal blog on the website, where she writes regularly. I love reading her blog posts. She tells it like it is, which is so refreshing. As she says, “I’m transparent, notoriously sassy and no topic is off limits.”
If you want to bring yourself up to speed on what’s what for like-minded women over 45, and be inspired and informed in all walks of your life, you must join the conversastion and become a regular subscriber to 1010 Park Place.
