Hi - I'm Lisa-Marie! In 2015 I sold my digital nomad eCommerce business and "retired" at 45.
Hi! Welcome to my website I'm so thrilled you're here. I am so lucky that I get to spend every day writing stories for readers like you. I write fun, breezy, page-turners filled with laughs, romance and adventure
In case you're wondering, here's how I got here:
In 2006 I left behind my corporate life as a business analyst and software developer to follow my dream of starting my own location independent business. I founded Doll Companies Inc., an ecommerce based toy manufacturing company, with $500 and a book on building a Yahoo Store. Doll Companies, Inc. supported my family and a worldwide team of contractors and employees while Mark, Emily (our daughter) and I adventured around the world and I worked from my laptop and a bandwidth connection. During that time we lived in The Bahamas, Tuscany, Sicily, Scotland, Florida while frequently traveling to new destinations for shorter adventures.
In 2012 women started approaching me for help in finding a way to live their own Ultimate Life. I wanted to help, so I created Laptop Life Lisa - a consulting, speaking and coaching company focused on helping entrepreneurial women realize their dreams.
In 2015 I decided it was time for a new adventure. I sold Doll Companies, Inc., wound down my coaching clients and embarked on a journey to fulfill my secret dream of becoming an author. Now I spend my time writing breezy, contemporary romance and chick-lit novels, creating and running a self-publishing business, continuing my travel adventures with my husband, and pining for my daughter who has now fled the nest.
We are what folks call, "Digital Nomads". We travel the world while working from our laptops. We love living our laptop life.
