Late Bloomers Unite

with Sondra Primeaux 



Sondra Primeaux

Creating solutions to living your best life in the middle, is possible when you make time to discover how you feel about yourself sans alcohol.

There is nothing wrong  with being a late bloomer, in fact, it's fun as my guest, Sondra Primeaux shares in Episode 178. 

Practicing self-compassion, taking care of ourselves more, and being grateful can help us increase our vibrancy, find better solutions, and flourish in the second half of our life.

Sobriety is the root that enters the ground to give you an opportunity to flourish and thrive.

I'm Lori Massicot, the host of To 50 and Beyond. 

I started the podcast in 2018 with a mission to talk about aging and sobriety and share stories of hope and inspiration in midlife and beyond. 

My continued mission is to bring women over 40 together over topics that don't usually get discussed aloud to break through the shame and stigma that holds us back from being, doing, and experiencing BETTER.

It's never too late to travel another path and have fun along the way. 

I know you're ready to ROCK your very best self To 50 and Beyond!
