You don't have to do it alone.

Motherhood is such an important and beloved role, but so many women in mid-life lose their individual identity along the way. This becomes especially apparent when their children begin to move out and leave the nest.  Many mothers simply don’t know who they are anymore without their children.

The Empty Nester Club aims to address this common experience of struggle shared by countless mothers. What do they all have in common? Lack of preparation. We aim to redefine how millions of mothers prepare for Empty Nesting.

It's time To bring your soul-whispers to life again.

“My mission is to impact and empower
One Million Empty Nesters.”

— Karla Raby Olson

We are a collective of women, changing the conversation around Empty Nesting, from a position of lack to a potential for joy.

Moms need to rediscover who they are, and how to nurture their own dreams and desires in order to direct their unwavering love back into themselves.
They deserve deep fulfillment on a soul level. We all do.

At The Empty Nester Club, we help women define their next chapter
and fall back in love with their future.
