Interview with Women's World: Kristina Mastrocola

by Wendy,

Retirees.... you won't believe this, well maybe you will, but I did an interview with Women's World magazine this past week, January 2017.

Now, if you know me, I am an introvert -- I find great fun writing from behind the screen! BUT to talk to people, especially groups, isn't easy for me! This, however, was one on one... and I was ok with it. I was ready.

Anyhow, I received an email from Kristina Mastrocola, Senior Editor at Women's World Magazine, asking to interview me. She does a weekly column, Ask America's Ultimate Experts.

I am so grateful to her for this opportunity, regardless of whether I am really in the issue or not. This is simply a huge step forward for me...

I was so surprised to get the email. ME? Seriously? I assumed she found me with a Google search, as I get lots of retiree visitors to this site. But no, it was one of my Kindle books instead. WOW!

The funny (to me) part about that is... I did my own covers (replacing them very soon) as I know most retirees who purchase the book would find them via my site. I assumed they didn't need to be eye-catching, Well - guess what?

A magazine editor found me via my books! Yikes! Lesson Learned.

OK, that's it... feeling blessed to be moving forward on more tiny step in my retirement business!

OOPS... the issue should be on newsstands March 1. Very curious to see if I am in there! I looked online and there are usually 3 experts on the bottom of the one page column... am I one of them?

Wish me luck!
