Welcome

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 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 a tween. 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.

We’re wearing Christmas hats because it is the only photo we have of all of us together!

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 now it permeates my life and my family’s.

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

Warmly, 

Lorraine
