We had the good fortune of connecting with Lanita Isler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lanita, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
When I was on maternity leave, I watched a lot of YouTube. There were a lot of younger YouTubers, that where great, but didn’t have the same issues that I was facing. So, I thought I would specifically start a channel for Women who were over 40, that face the same changes and challenge.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a mother, artist, adventurist, professional, partner, among many other things. I felt like everything changed when I hit my 40’s – things I did before just didn’t work anymore. My body held weight in areas that I never had issues with, I hurt in places that never hurt before, fashion has taken on a new dimension (functional while looking great), my skin was changing (and ageing), and overall I just have different life stressors that I’m trying to figure out how to manage. I am just trying to figure out life after 40 and thought I would record it and hopefully help others out in the process. Come join me in trying to find joy and figure out this crazy life after 40 together @ www.youtube.com/channel/UCVqvMo4jL8lN2u-hVUUTjkg

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love going to Cherry Creek. Great food, drinks and of course SHOPPING! Fave restaurant – Toro Latin Kitchen & Lounge Best drinks – They are honestly all good Fav boutique – A Line Boutique Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
All the women who are over 40 and going after what they want in life. Even if they are starting over to do so.
