Hi There! I'm Lois Riley Durham.
I'm a creator and newbie minimalist. I’m also a chronic illness survivor devoted to sharing my story to educate and help people become more open-minded instead of being judgmental.
My Top Seven Loves
1. My husband and our three fur-babies (Leo, Izzy, and Salem)
2. My 1991 Honda Civic Hatchback
3. My Home Office (My Safe Place)
4. My iPhone and Apple Watch
5. My Planner
6. My Bed (I love to sleep.)
7. Learning New Things
I am just a crazy white chick who loves wrestling, heavy metal and trying to figure out my purpose in this messed up world. In 2011, I started a Virtual Assistant business called LRD Virtual Admin Service where I basically did web design, social media, and provided administrative support. A few years later after trial and error, I decided to drop the business name and do business as myself. Now in 2021, I no longer provide administrative support and found out that my true passion is building websites.
I also have a podcast called The LRD Show, where I interview a variety of guests as we discuss different topics from business to life and everything in between. Besides my podcast, I have a YouTube Channel where I am starting to do a Vlog Series around balancing work, life, and medical struggles one week at a time. I plan to write a weekly blog ranging from business and productivity tips to personal stories and more.
I have been featured in the Commercial Appeal and interviewed on the Marybeth Conley Show in Memphis, TN. I hope one day I can get the opportunity to interview both Kelly Cutrone and Gary Vaynerchuk on my podcast as they are the two main people who have showed me the way to just be myself and to not give a rats ass about what other people think.
