What a year, we have just completed the busiest time during in CHWR history… especially the last 3 months over 40 interviews, and many promotions for Dave and Bill and our CHW Alumni, plus radio guests, new partners and friends in the CyberHood!
Today was another very special day because Rita Lee Lloyd ~ selected US to do her very first radio interview, announcing her brand new book on CHWR, called: “How to Survive in the 21 Century as a S.S.O.F.F.*”, an entertaining and informative look at her own method of survival as a “*Suddenly Single Over Forty Female.”
Widowed in her forty’s with a son still in school, Rita embarked on a path of self-discovery. After 20 years in the corporate world she began a clothing business, Women for all Seasons, featuring custom outfits of her own design. Education always being a priority, she enrolled in what she termed “fun” classes in acting, improvisation and public speaking. It was as a result of an acting class that she came upon the opportunity to audition for a television commercial. To her surprise, she was offered the part and consequently spent several years acting and modeling in the television and film industry. (re)Creating herself was a big part of Rita’s survival technique and as she puts it, “I’m still working at it!”
Parents please listen to this fantastic interview:

Sharing from her heart what all of us experience sometime in our own lives, one way or another we all loose family, friends, spouses and yes sometimes even children, and if we have not experienced this first hand, then we probably know someone who has! What a difference knowing the right things to say, and share with those we love to support them through this time of need, in their lives is… PRICELESS!!

Life as a S.S.O.F.F.
There are approximately 24 million divorced or widowed women in the U.S. alone. To many of these divorcees and widows, it happened quite suddenly. By suddenly, I mean not planned or anticipated. You too may be one of these 24 million women, or you may know one, or several.
If divorced, maybe the marriage wasn’t ideal, but you weren’t considering divorce at the time. Or perhaps your spouse simply walked out without warning. Hey – it happens! Look at Camille Grammer, to name a recent S.S.O.F.F.
If widowed, even if your spouse suffered a prolonged illness, a full recovery was anticipated, and being left alone just wasn’t an option. Regardless of the circumstances, being single again hadn’t been in the picture.
Now, however, single is not only in the picture – it is your life! No matter who you are, what your religious beliefs, your heritage, your career, your age. . . .you are in the same boat with millions of other women. Read more
A Very Special Thanks to everyone for making 2010 a great year for CHW, from Dave Ballard & Bill Wardell and the CyberHood Watch Team!
