The 40+ influencer community is growing and we are thrilled!
At one of the first rewardStyle conferences Erin attended, there were just a handful of influencers over 40…out of 200. Now, there are dozens! As the 40+ influencer world grows, so do the amazing resources! Here at Busbee, we’re trying to disrupt the perception of being 40+. This is not a time to hide your age or worry about becoming invisible. This is a time for reinvention, a time to try new things!
With this new site launch, our team will be bringing you all the resources you need to uplevel your lives. We will not only cover Style, but also Beauty, Wellness, Lifestyle, and Home. If you’re interested in more 40+ influencers who are empowering women, check out these YouTubers and bloggers that we love…
