Reimagine Your Life! Niver’s News: June 2021


June News 2021 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

Happy Father’s Day! Lisa and Frank Niver at Century City Mall June 20, 2021

What will you do next with your life? During COVID, we have been waiting. Many of us have been inside wondering when things would start to open again. California has changed so much this month. Masks are not mandatory. Gyms are open. I went to IN THE HEIGHTS for Father’s Day with my parents. I love the movies. How will you REIMAGINE your life?
