Hi and welcome to my digital home!

My mission is to inspire YOU to live life to the fullest!  After losing it all during the Great Recession in 2008 – marriage, work, savings – and having to go on welfare as a single mom, I reinvented my writing career online and eventually built a profitable online business: Viva Fifty Media. It all started with the website VivaFifty.com which I launched a few months after turning 50. 

I found out early in life that I wasn’t 9 to 5 material. I´ve never had a full-time job, by choice, but always made a living with words. I´m passionate about sharing with others how to pull off the profitable creative life!

Here is where you can learn and share about life as a full-time digital content creator and entrepreneur. I, like many other women, juggle my work with parenting. I am raising two teens and my eldest, 19, left last July, to travel and go to college. We also have a rescue dog, Toby. My husband, Phillippe, is an author, an involved father and stepdad, and is also heavily involved in Viva Fifty Media.

We all form a quirky multicultural and bilingual blended family. We’ll I’m struggling with making the kids bilingual, but it’s never too late to give it another try.

Although I work hard, I also feel it’s important to take time for self-care. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health is vital. I used to be a runner and a dancer, but I injured my hip during a half-marathon a few years ago. I rediscovered yoga in the summer of 2015 and went on to become a registered yoga teacher (RYT-500) and Reiki Master. The result of that is my second venture, The Flawed Yogini.

I would love to know what brought you here and even better, what made you stay! What can I do for YOU?



P.S.- I could not do everything that I do and do it well, on my own!


P.D.- No podría hacer todo lo que hago yo sola ¡y hacerlo bien!
