S.O.B.’s have fire, don’t ever quit and get immense joy and pleasure out of what you do. You make a difference, and because you are sassy and “mature,” you get away with a lot more than you used to. You are the inspiration for your mentees, family and “sisters in kind” and those who want to be unique.

You have spirit! And have the opportunity to make the world a better place!  If you were to tell your story, what would it sound like? What characters would be in it and who would play them? What changes do you have to make in the coming years  to make it an Academy Award winning movie. What will you do on a daily basis to make it happen?

Approach things in small bites rather than big gulps. Take it easy on yourself. If you walk your talk and do what you say without looking worried and hurried, your spirit will shine brightly through.

Here’s how:

  1. Use a journal to write down inspirations and things you’d like to see, read, participate in or join.
  2. Write down names of people you’d like to meet or invite to lunch.
  3. Put this list in a prominent place so it doesn’t slip your mind.
  4. Ask: Was my spirit alive today?

Dr. Gayle Carson, Chief S.O.B. has announced the 2018b Spunky Broad of the Year.  And she is Dolly Parton, a prime example of what a woman over 50 can still achieve.

An extraordinary businesswoman, out of this world entertainer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, and a philanthropist, Dolly Parton is a testament to what women can achieve.  At 72, she is continuing to have massive influence in the world of entertainment and her Dollywood Theme Park continues to thrive with new exhibits and attractions that the public adores.

Married to her husband for over 50 years, she is an example of someone who blends family and professional life with amazing dexterity and humor.  A Spunky Old Broad is someone who distinguishes herself by her uniqueness, intellect, enthusiasm, dedication, selflessness and spunky. Dolly certainly epitomizes all of those.

Dr. Gayle says “Women over 50 are like fine wine.  They only get better with age and I am delighted to have Dolly Parton as our Spunky Old Broad of the Year.” 

Gayle also says “I started the S.O.B, movement because I found that women over 50 were thinking that it was all over because they hit the magic number of 50.  I knew that they had everything it took to start new careers, develop a passion into a business and start thinking about putting themselves first.  And I was right. Right now re-invention is the name of the game.

Gayle will be addressing the East Bay Women’s Conference  in California on just that subject next month.
