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

I had quite a day today watching the coverage on the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary and the Wimbledon championship. Although very different events, they each brought out the best in the people involved.

All the unsung heroes of the Apollo mission were incredible. Watching the impact of the women who sewed the space suits was mesmerizing and to see how many new thought processes had to go into making the mission a reality was stunning. Then to go on and see the fortitude and strength of Federer and Djokovic was mind blowing. Non-stop for hours, each played a thrilling game.

And so that’s why I’m asking, what makes a champion? In my humble opinion, I think most people are champions in their every day life when they make the decisions they do to raise families, lead people, invent something new and just be the positive, helping, caring individuals they are.

So, I ask you, what do you do on a daily basis to be a champion in someone’s eyes? And yes, yours as well!

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.
