The Forbes 50 Over 50 Share Their Best Advice

For Supercharging Your Career After 50

by Elana Lyn Gross at

The inaugural Forbes 50 Over 50 list, produced in collaboration with Mika Brzezinski and her “Know Your Value” initiative, shines a spotlight on women who started businesses or supercharged their careers after age 50. They have broken barriers in male-dominated industries, founded million or billion-dollar businesses, taken the helm of critical nonprofits and advocacy organizations, and are creating change from City Hall to the White House. 
   Though they work across industries, many of the listees have similar stories of being one of a few women in the room, facing adversities and obstacles, juggling careers and caregiving, and changing career paths well into their 50s.
