GenXWoman is a digital media company for Gen X women by Gen X women. It is a destination for entertainment, education and most importantly inspiration tailored to the amazing and badass women of Generation X.
We aspire to provide a space exclusively for the GenXWoman as a source of inspiration, positivity, and fun told from the Gen X Woman’s perspective. It’s time to celebrate how much we’ve accomplished, how far we’ve come, and to look forward to where we want to go!
Together we aim to change the narrative from the “lost” generation to the “bridge” generation of entrepreneurs, innovators, mentors, artists, mothers, daughters, sisters, and caregivers.
Megan E Fox Co-Founder
Megan Fox followed the traditional path of a Gen X woman and obtained a BSc and an MBA with high hopes of having the corner office, which she eventually did. She worked her way up as a senior Retail and Operations executive for some of the most renowned brands in the fashion and apparel industry where she was a leader for more than 15 years. Today she is a business consultant who is also deeply invested in her personal growth and what lights her up.
As she’s evolved, Megan has come more into her own power and using her voice which hasn’t been commonplace for Generation X. She wanted to help build a community of like-minded women at this expansive stage in their lives. Her motto is you’re never too old and it’s never too late!
Megan is also the co-host of the podcast It’s Always Brunch with Megan & Shannon, which is a space for all things dating, relationships, love, and sex for women in the prime of their lives. It follows two Gen X women in their 40s navigating the modern world of dating and sharing their very relatable experiences to empower others to take ownership, accountability, and ultimately take charge of their romantic lives.
Megan also has varied interests and hobbies including style and fashion, pole dancing, reading personal development books, listening to podcasts, meeting new people, spending time with friends, and traveling.
Dena K Martines Co-Founder
“My fondest memories from growing up include listening to “Modern Talking” on my Walkman for hours on end, watching music videos on MTV and crushing on Tom Cruise in Top Gun while wondering about the universe and why am I here.”
Dena has a BSc from Rutger’s University in NJ and a MBA from McGill University in Montreal. And before co-founding GenXWoman and launching her coaching and consulting practice, her early career included stints as an entrepreneur across Sales and Retail spaces before spending nearly two decades as a corporate executive, where she ascended in highly analytical and operational leadership roles.
Her challenging yet successful career, international background and commitment to creating a life that is always evolving, aligned, authentic and soulful, paved a powerful spiritual path that led her to the concept of creating a community specifically for women like herself.
When not focused on running the behind the scenes Operations and Business aspects of GenXWoman, she is helping her coaching clients discover their life purpose and making it their day job, reading self-improvement books and mystery novels, watching the history channel and Gaia TV, traveling around the world, and taking long walks with her adorable high maintenance fur-son, Baxter.
We are both proud Gen Xers with a long career history in the corporate world. We both lived and worked in the New Jersey/New York area throughout our late 20s and in our 30s, and probably crossed paths without even knowing it! Later sharing stories of restaurants we’d been to and stores we shopped in, it seemed uncanny that we hadn’t actually met. But the timing wasn’t quite right… until we were brought together by a powerhouse visionary and senior executive female leader who hand picked us both to join her then team at adidas in Portland. She ultimately moved on to bigger things, but we learned that what we thought was our reason for meeting at that place, during that time…ultimately proved to be a different reason entirely. Through our shared bond of womanhood, and a strong desire to inspire and support other women of Generation X, iGenXWoman.com was formed!
