Yikes!Media, parent of Yikes! Advisors, works with media companies to launch blogs and build online communities. We recently acquired www.asuccessfulwoman.com. The site is a support network that helps women organize, gather information, find connections, and make personal contacts with other women.
We launched www.todaysgrandma.com for baby boom women who are entering a new phase of their life. It’s a community that talks openly and with love about the joys and concerns of family, children and especially grandchildren. Yikes! also is building a community for older job seekers (www.50plusandoutofwork.com).
