Hi! I’m Rebecca Calhoun

                                                                                                                                      Rebecca in the vineyard

I want to welcome you to the Crone Community!

I started The Creative Crone blog as a way to build a community of women like me who want to create a joyful, active retirement. 

I am on a continual quest to live my best life, even if I don't always practice what I preach. Follow along as we journey together into our crone years!  Get involved by sharing with me in the comments. I look forward to hearing your voice!

In my private membership site you will find educational resources to guide you through this new stage of life. My dream is to help other women like myself live happy, healthy and financially secure lives. 

We can all grow and learn from each other!
