Being Fabulous At Any Age

“Les Brown says, ‘Die empty.’ That’s what I’m looking forward to. When I am 85, you can find me at the football games. I will be wearing tights and cowboy boots, sequins, and lipstick. I’m looking forward to being fabulous at every point in my life.”  This is a quote from Minnie Forte-Brown in the book 40+ And Fabulous by Sondra Wright.


I had the pleasure of having Ms. Forte as my communications professor in undergrad. She’s one of those people that is truly memorable, and a positive example of what it means to be a Diva. So, I was not surprised at all to see her included in a book about being fabulous. In fact, when I think of women I’ve known who are 50+ and Fabulous, she’s certainly at the top of that list.


It’s been some time since I’ve seen Ms. Forte; but based on her chapter in the book, I can tell that she is still lighting up the room and leading by example! I thought this passage was certainly in the spirit of living a Phenomenal Lifestyle™, and felt moved to share it with you. Hope it ticked and inspired you as much as it has me. Rock on to every woman who’s Decided to maximize her Life, leave a Legacy of brilliance and to look & feel FLY while doing it all!
