About Colleen

Colleen Hierath

I am the queen of the second act!

When my life took a dramatic turn as a result of a car accident that left my body battered and brain scrambled; I was unwilling to accept these circumstances. I had survived death 3 times; multiple surgeries and a coma and I felt that I could rally back to my life. I relearned how to talk, walk, write, and live once again. I fought hard to reclaim happiness and love.

I share my story of transformation so that women can be  inspired to have an amazing second act and have more love, happiness, success and fun than in the first stage of life!

I am the mother of 3 daughters. I married the love of my life, Arlyn in 2017. I blog about how perrenials (over 50) are changing what it looks like in the second stage of life. We are not our mothers nor are we zoomers or boomers. We are perrenials who are changing the face of what it looks like to be over 50.  We care about how we look and feel and we live our life to make an impact bigger than ourselves.  We have been in the corporate world, owned our own business, volunteered, econcomic providers for our families and we are now at a stage in ourlives where most of our children have been raised and now we are taking on new endeavours. We are the biggest buying demographic ever and we make 90% of all consumer decisions in our households.   I also write about how to attract epic love in the 2nd Act; and the fun of living between my urban world and my husband’s rural business while blending our family of 9 children.
