Step Up with Gayle Carson

About Dr. Gayle Carson

The back story of Dr. Gayle’s Spunky Old Broad® Philosophy 

Born in Albany, NY, Dr. Gayle Carson, like many of us, has experienced endless moves and had many career adventures and hiccups along the way. One thing Gayle knew at a young age- she was born to coach entrepreneurs.

Possessing that “silver lining mentality” has allowed her to build a company from 0 to 7 offices, travel globally as an international speaker, coach and consultant and produce over two dozen books, CD and DVD programs and work with over 1000 clients in 50 different industries.

Coaching and speaking across the world, Dr. Gayle always heard:

“How do you stay so positive?”   “Where does that inner-spunk come from?”  Did they say SPUNK? Well, she knew she wasn’t a spring chicken and having an opinion can make people reach for the BROAD word.  So why not put this whole thing together and represent in a POSITIVE way, three words that are typically NEGATIVE?

The Spunky Old Broad® (SOB) philosophy was born.  Dr. Gayle wanted to possess a distinct way to describe that fire in her belly that just seems to keep her going!

The past 79 years weren’t child’s play however. Surviving three bouts of breast cancer and over 16 surgeries, experiencing the death of her husband and her oldest son was not easy to say the least. Throughout all the cancer, she kept working even during radiation, chemo as Dr. Gayle believes we are all survivors in one form or another.

This attitude transfers over to the mastermind groups and individual coaching and mentoring with her clients so that they not only survive but flourish and reinvent themselves personally and professionally.

As an expert adviser to CEO’s and entrepreneurial managers around the world, she has been called on by major media to comment on business, communication, the conversation on boomer statistics and even customer service issues.  A specialist in boomer women and beyond, she helps them deal with elder-care issues, feeling invisible, self-esteem and most important, knowing they can become whatever it is they want to be. When you consider our aging general population; boomer statistics show over 10,000 individuals in the US alone retire each and everyday.  Other boomer statistics may seem staggering in looking at the sheer numbers of:

  • 77 million people were born between 1946 and 1964, which is defined as the baby boomer era (U.S. Census)
  • By Boomers make up 35% of the American adult population (Scarborough)
  • The 55+ age group controls more than three-fourths of America’s wealth (ICSC)

Dr. Carson says, “Many of my mentees are already successful, however they are dealing with so many other issues because they are responsible women who become overwhelmed.”
