You’ve known me as Wendy Spiegel for several years for a few reasons and I’ve now gone to my full name…Janet Wendy Spiegel. When I started blogging, I was unsure about how “known” I wanted to be. I also wanted to keep my personal life and blogging life very separate. However, as it turns out, the two have merged — my business has become very entwined with blogging and as a champion of the 50 plus demographic, it is becoming very important to join the two worlds together. In addition to this blog, I run www.genplususa.com, a job site for 50 plussers, and provide a range of consulting services for small businesses — from staff management, to office automation, to website development and content generation (and a lot more!)
There are other Janet Spiegels and other Wendy Spiegels, but, I think, only one Janet Wendy Spiegel…me. So you’ll notice that my profile, signature and email now include my full name. For those of you who connect to me on Facebook, MySpace, or through LinkedIn, those profiles will change as well. There are some arenas, like Eons, where I may not be able to add my first name, but Wendy Spiegel and Janet Wendy Spiegel are one and the same.
If you are used to me as Wendy, I’ll still answer to both names. And I’m as commited, as always, to the challenges boomers and 50 plussers are facing as they get older in the workplace.
