Laurie tells us how she stays passionate and motivated every day.

What do you think is the key to success?

The key to success is to keep being positive, strive to learn and keep going! I love a challenge and thrive on reaching the goals I have made for myself.

What do you love about this stage of your life?

The best part about reaching midlife for me has to be the confidence I have now. I don’t worry about minor things going on in my life like I used to.

What motivates you?

I feel I look better now than I did when I was younger. Having time on my hands to do what I want when I want is a bonus and a motivator.
