From the Journal of the S.O.B.:

I am attending the 39th convention of the National Speakers Association. As you can imagine, there are over 1000 people here who are mostly professional plus those just starting out. We also have 100 youth attending the program including my great-grandson and my granddaughter.

I took her when she was 10 (the starting age) and now he is 10 and beginning as well. She is here as a mentor to the youth group so it’s turned into a family event. And we are all in the same hotel room!

It is magical to be going through this deja vu, and it hardly seems like 20 years has gone by. Technology is different, there are more speakers, requests are different, but the bottom line is—you still have to be good–and really great.

I  represent the past (although I am still active and speaking), my granddaughter represents the present and my great-grandson is the future. Even if they don’t become professional speakers, the training that goes on is phenomenal. I’m not sure if you have as much pride in your profession as I do (I sure hope so)  but it’s pretty terrific.

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.
