About Robin Marshall @RobinMarshallVO
Robin Marshall is leading the Sugar Mom revolution. A Sugar Mom is a woman who’s reached the age or the mindset where she’s got her family and life in order, and now makes time for herself that she’s never had before! “Me Time!” 35 million baby boomer women will NOT give in to age. Neither will the savvy 30 or 40 year olds that are still with their kids! Why? It’s not the beginning of the end…it’s the beginning of the BEST! Gone are the days of drinking cheap beer and bagged wine. Now you're a connoisseur. (Or you're just wondering which one will get you buzzed faster.) No, we don't want to miss years past, we’re very happy with who we’ve become!
