¡Buen día mi gente! Welcome!

What does it mean to live la vida más chévere to you? Is it:

  • self-awareness with healthy boundaries in place?
  • managing imposter syndrome or a nasty voice inside your head?

If so, then you’re in the right place! If you’ve been looking to achieve even just one of these, then La Vida Más Chévere: Through the Childfree Lens with Paulette Erato is exactly what you need.

Welcome to the platform to help childfree Latinas y Latines navigate a life free from the toxicity and BS within our culture, and live their best lives—La Vida Más Chévere!
