As the creator of 2nd Act TV, I stand by our motto: “We live what we bring you!” And I lived it all! Everything from divorce after 50 and starting life over; to on-line dating, finding love again and rediscovering sexuality; to taking charge of my health and fitness and getting into the best shape of my life; to starting a new career and risking it all. While it hasn’t been a smooth road, I’ll always look back on my journey with gratitude and a smile, and without regret. I choose to live life to the fullest after 50. Cheers!
