626 Dr. Gayle Carson: 626 ICYMI Gayle Carson (In Memoriam): Been There, Built That
Balancing Entrepreneurship, Motherhood and Marriage
No one ever said scaling a business to 8 or 9 figures is exactly easy for anyone – women or men.
Think how hard it must have been for a woman in the 1950s and 1960s.
Today we go back into our Wings vault to share this inspiring interview with a female founder who was well ahead of her time – she had already “been there, built that” when most of us were infants or still a twinkle in our parent’s eyes.
Dr Gayle Carson called herself the Chief SOB – SOB standing for “spunky old broad”. It was the name of her website and her SOB Radio Network. She always seemed unstoppable – battling cancer multiple times before succumbing this past month.
As a young woman, Gayle bought the model training agency she started working within a year of her employment and then scaled it to 350 employees, graduating more than a million students from her training programs, and diversifying its sales base from one to seven divisions and it eventually her company became the largest independent organization in the industry. Somehow, she also found time to be a wife, a mother, and a TV spokesperson for Clairol.
I am running her episode again in her honor because she shares how she did it, and you’ll see why she was an inspiration to so many.
May she rest in peace knowing that her work inspired so many to greatness.
Gayle was also a 5-time bestselling author, international speaker, winner of countless honors and awards, and a host of several radio shows. Later as President of the Carson Research Center, she was a consultant to 50 industries on six continents, advising on current business trends and cutting-edge opportunities to stay ahead of their competition.
