Dr. Gayle works with women over 50 to
reinvent themselves. But regardless of our age, hearing that
message - that no matter where you are in life - you too can start
over is a powerful message we should all spend more time
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.

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
