In my 50s, I began to notice the ‘disappearing act’ of relevant, useful, information and opportunities for women my age. Outside of a barrage of marketing messages that we should be using botox, fillers, or cut our hair short; there didn’t seem to be much. Vibrant, energetic, at the ready for adventure, I was dismayed that most lifestyle websites target the ‘below 35’ age group. The few ‘age appropriate’ lifestyle websites I stumbled across were riddled with advertisements; making it near impossible to determine where the content ended and the marketing began. Enter Kuel Life.
Kuel Life delivers relevant, ad-free, content to women 45+. We share and empower each other with expert advice and stories from real women; women who are our friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family. Women to whom we can relate. A virtual space where women come together in community and share our voice and experiences.
The Kuel Shop’s mission is to find, select, and showcase WOMEN-DRIVE brands. Founder and CEO, Jacqueline (Jack) Perez hand selects the products; creating an opportunity for us all to shop ‘small’, even online. When you buy an item from the Kuel Shop you weave yourself into that woman entrepreneur’s storyline; you become part of the fabric of women empowering women. Purchase with a purpose; Shop Kuel.
