What if it Wasn't TOO LATE
to Start Living Your Best Life? Here's How!

When my husband left me after 35 years of unhappy marriage, I felt like there were only two choices:

  • GIVE UP and keep living a crappy life until I died. 


  • GET GOING  and find a way to be HAPPY and start living MY LIFE, the life I had imagined.  

But was it possible? And how???


I figured it out and I wrote it all down in my "smart woman's trilogy." Just $39 for all three books & includes free shipping.

Too many women - just like you and me - who are in their 50s, 60s, and even 70s are waking up, looking around themselves and realizing they never lived the life they imagined.

  • They're stuck...
  • Frustrated...
  • Unhappy...
  • And maybe DIVORCE or serious illness or just BEING FED UP was the final trigger that made you stop and think about your life. Truly think and SEE what was going on.

That's how I was too. I never stopped and thought about how I was living - if it was good or bad or if it was what I wanted.

I was just ... existing.

I was living a life by default.

I realize now that I was stuck.

So stuck I didn't even know I was stuck.


And then, at age 60, my marriage of 35 years ended. It was over.

I thought that everything was over. Instead, it was a beginning.

It was the moment I knew that something had to change. And that was me.

It took nearly 4 years of reading, reflecting, learning ... and changing.


If YOU could start making changes ...

If those changes were painless and almost effortless...

If you could begin implementing them in just minutes a day ...

If you had simple, clear strategies to change your environment and life...

If you had a way to track your progress in a way that encouraged you to keep going ...

And you were inspired by the funny but true story of someone just like you who had "been there, done that."


The Smart Woman's Trilogy

If You've Tried Wishing for a Change,
Beating Yourself Up,
or Telling Yourself to Just "Get it Together."

I did for years, so I know that doesn't work! In fact, it only makes things worse.

Taking action can feel so hard, especially when you've been stuck for so long.

That's Why I've Made This So Simple

If you're frustrated, sad, or even angry... why would you take a path that was complicated, hard or "fancy?"

What if you could start living the live you imagined ... Right NOW?

Time to stop wishing.

Time to stop berating yourself.

Time to stop feeling stuck or lost in your own life.

I was there. But I got out of it. I did it on my own ... and it was hard and long.

But what if you had a guide so that you don't have to spend years learning and searching?

I wrote my these books to be that simple, easy guide.

"Live the Life You Have Imagined" is no-nonsense and no fluff.  Invest just five minutes a day in yourself to read a chapter (there are 31).

Each one outlines a simple action, an easy way to get out of stuck, to get out of default mode and to start living the life YOU have imagined.

Does it seem too simple? Why would you want to do it the hard way??? Tiny steps add up with almost no effort; they grow and they get you there.

This book was written for YOU if you are:

  • Living someone else's dreams.
  • Following a path not your own.
  • Thinking "There's nothing I can do."

In this book, I show you:

  • Where to begin and how to put yourself on the path to a great life.
  • The simple, daily activities that create a best life.
  • How to deal with naysayers, challenges, and the "shoulds."
  • Where to look for resistance and how to deal with obstacles.
  • How anyone can live their best life, no matter where they are now.

"Live the Life You Have Imagined" covered everything I needed to be reminded of as I continue life's journey. It's in an easy, concise format that will allow me to go back to it over and over for direction and inspiration."

You're also going to receive the "Live the Life You Have Imagined Companion Journal."

This print only journal includes:

  • My strategy for incorporating it into your life (not just a one-time read that sits on the shelf)
  • A simple self-assessment that shows you how you're progressing over the long run.
  • A way to get started that keeps you out of overwhelm.
  • Plus, built-in encouragement and motivation!

Plus, you also get my Amazon top-seller "Single and Sixty"

This is the reflective and sometimes humorous story of pulling my life together after suddenly getting divorced at 60. I had experiences that you wouldn't believe (or maybe you would!) like...

  • Having my 30 year old son tell me that I was on a "hook up" dating site... and then having to ask him what a "hook up" was.
  • Running into a business friend at the drugstore while shopping for, well, something I hadn't bought in a long time.
  • Learned about "lollipop scars" and "monkey mouth" and the problem with brand new lingerie.

I also wrote it to encourage other women who are on their journey through divorce. I share the insights and lessons I learned along the way about business, life, finances, friendship and love.

It's Been a Journey - But It's Never Too Late...

I never really imagined that my life would be like this. I didn't imagine that I would be a three-time book author. Before that, I didn't imagine that I would be unhealthy, in debt and divorced at 60 years old after 35 years of marriage.

I spent a lot of time growing up and as an adult never really thinking there was much else out there besides working myself to exhaustion and taking care of a family.

I was a business owner in partnership with my family. We had $6.6 million in properties to manage when my husband left. But it didn’t mean I had access to that kind of cash!

Actually, I had mounds of debt so I decided to get my real estate brokers license. That was a learning experience. Eventually, I managed to pull myself out of debt and began to be able to breathe a little bit.

On top of everything else, I had let myself get overweight and out of shape. When I decided to get in shape, I joined a boot camp. I couldn't even jog at first! I had to walk, then jog, before eventually competing in a few local 5k races. I was later recruited into a masters track club and competed in the National Senior Games in 2019.

Despite traveling for years with my former spouse (he was military), I was so afraid to travel on my own. It took a real act of courage to go to San Francisco, which might sound like a little "weak sauce" to some of you, but I had never driven to or been in the city by myself.

Since then I’ve solo traveled to North Carolina, South Carolina, a dude ranch in Wyoming, and Arizona (where I bought a warehouse).

I’ve also been to Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Egypt, France and Italy with groups or on tours. I went to Croatia by myself for a month in 2019.

All of this from a woman who was single, overweight, out of shape and broke ... at age 60!

While it might sound like I have “arrived” somewhere, I know it’s an ongoing journey and there is still much for me to do.

I've been where you are and I know how to get out of that place.

Join me and let me encourage you to live your best life too!
