#ForbesOver50 : Women Stepping Into Their Power in Life’s Second Half!

Forbes has unveiled its second annual “50 Over 50” List, produced in partnership with Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” and her “Know Your Value” platform. Expanded since the lists inception, the 2022 list spotlights 200 dynamic female entrepreneurs and leaders over the age of 50 who have achieved significant success later in life, often overcoming formidable odds or barriers.

“The women on this year’s 50 over 50 list are thriving in life’s second half – and inspiring the women and men around them to do the same,” said Maggie McGrath, editor of ForbesWomen. “By highlighting the diverse stories and triumphs of these remarkable women, our aim is to shatter prevailing misconceptions about age and gender in the workforce. These women are continuing to influence industries, culture, and capital in their 50s and beyond.”

The 2022 “50 Over 50” list is divided into four categories – Lifestyle, Entrepreneurs, Impact and Money. Notable list makers for each category include:

· Lifestyle: Kris Jenner. Jenner famously put the Kardashian family on the map in 2007 with their reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Led my matriarch Kris Jenner, the Kardashians have forged an empire powered by a combined 1 billion social media followers that spans denim and makeup, tequila and skin care for babies.

· Entrepreneurs: Bobbi Brown. In 1995, Brown signed a 25-year noncompete agreement after selling her eponymous cosmetics brand to Estée Lauder for a reported $74.5 million. On the day her noncompete expired, she launched a new venture called Jones Road, which hit $20 million in sales in 2021.

· Impact: Hoda Kotb. The longtime NBC News and Dateline correspondent was 54 in 2018 when network execs tapped her for the role of a lifetime: taking the seat Matt Lauer had once occupied as co-anchor of the Today show. That made Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, who nominated Hoda for the list, the first all-female anchor team in the morning show’s 70-year history.

Here’s to dynamic women proving that success has no age limit!
