Do you have friends that you so admire you wish you could introduce them to all of your other friends?
That’s the way I feel about Lesley Seymour, former editor of the late, great MORE magazine, whom I have known for more than 30 years (neither one of us can believe it).
She is a remarkable woman in so many ways, her intelligence, kindness, creativity, generosity, unwavering loyalty, ethic of excellence and oh, yes, she’s a brilliant writer. If she weren’t so lovely she would be annoying.
After the last magazine specifically for our demographic was shuttered, Lesley was overwhelmed by the deluge of former readers asking her to find some way to continue the conversation she started in MORE.
She has always been all about reinvention, which was an integral part of her editorial content. Suddenly she was confronted with a more complicated reinvention challenge, her own. Immediately thereafter she began working on a way to reach out to us in new, meaningful ways and to be the catalyst that keeps us talking, moving forward and yes, finding the latest moisturizer that really works.
The networking possibilities open to us in her endeavour are unprecedented, whether we want to discover new products or explore new career opportunities and partnerships. She is opening up lines of communication and potential friendships that will, I am absolutely convinced, make our lives richer and more productive.
She has created Covey Club, “covey” being a group of like-minded individuals (I’m paraphrasing), which is what we are don’t you think?
I’ve invested — modestly — in her adventure and perhaps you would like to do so as well. I’ve also joined the Covey, and I hope you’ll join with me. In her own words, Lesley explains the Covey Club: https://www.ifundwomen.com/projects/covey-club
I think women of all ages are fascinating and I so admire those who have the desire, courage, and drive to reinvent their lives. It’s a conversation that is ever motivating and I definitely want to be part of the Covey.
