Over 50. Not the Hill.

Are you in midlife or beyond, dealing with the ups and downs, sags and bags, twists and turns that life at the midpoint throws at us? Then this is the place for you.

I’m Liz Grantham, founder of TheOptimal.me. I’m 53, an entrepreneur and single mum. When my full but stressful lifestyle collided with the aches and pains of aging, I realized I had to find a way to embrace and enjoy the years ahead.

Most importantly, I wanted to be honest with myself, and keep my sense of humour.

Over 50, Not the Hill combines notes from my journey to feeling better, more energized, and looking ahead with a growing sense of anticipation, inspiration and freedom with the realities of life beyond 45.
