3. What boundaries work for me. Are there any I need to rethink?

Are Legacies Required?

9. Here are my top three PROAGING tips? This is how I “proage” in today’s world.

“I met this crazy woman online and immediately knew we were sistas”


  • Always read the labels, most anti-aging potions are poison.
  • Don’t give a F*** what anybody else thinks or says, do it anyway.
  • Make friends with death and then you will have space to live.

10. Why am I Kuel Life Thought Leader?

Kay: Because I met this crazy woman online and immediately knew we were sistas on the same path to enlighten others. It has been quite a ride!
