Since next week is Christmas, this is my last missive of the year. It’s a time to reflect, to be grateful, to give thanks and to also think about what you want and will do in the new year.

As I look back, even though I have been through a lot, there is nothing I regret except for not taking advantage of even more opportunities. I have great friends, a loving family, my precious pets, and I do every day exactly what I love to do, so I am very fortunate.

What are my thoughts for 2019? That I can get my message out to even more people, that I beat this cancer for the 4th time, that my move to California will go smoothly and the start of something brand new and positive, and that all of you S.O.B.’s out there will have everything you desire and want as well.

My message to you is to not have any regrets. What’s the point? What you go through makes you stronger and helps you develop the skills and strength to do whatever it is you desire. I wish for all of you and healthy, happy, wonderful 2019.

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.
