Set outside Savannah, Georgia, this fictional community is filled with mansions, Rolls Royce Phantoms, and ladies who lunch. Four rich widows; Glenda, Edith, Darcy, and Sharon are looking forward to their golden years with everything taken care of. Then the amenities they have paid for–were promised–begin disappearing. The activities became tiresome and repetitive, the tee times on the lush golf course were always taken, and the late dinners with cocktails were no longer allowed when the kitchen started closing early. All of a sudden, it felt like their wonderful retirement was little more than a cheap motel. Something was definitely not right. These women ran companies and made their own fortunes. They knew when they were being handed a load of bull. No one can take advantage of these smart, sassy women.
Loud-out-loud hilarious, these women are not ready to give up anything they worked so hard for.
Author, speaker, and businesswoman Mitzi Perdue holds a BA with honors from Harvard University and an MPA from the George Washington University. She is a past president of the 35,000-member American Agri-Women, She’s also a former syndicated columnist for Scripps Howard and her column, “The Environment and You”, was the most widely-syndicated environmental column in the country. Her television series, Country Magazine, was syndicated to 76 stations. She’s the founder of CERES Farms, a second-generation family-owned commercial and agricultural real estate investment company.
Mitzi Perdue has had a lifelong fascination with what it takes to lead the best life. She got to watch up close and personal how her father co-founded and was President of the Sheraton Hotel chain, and she also got to watch how her late husband, Frank Perdue, built his father-and-son chicken company into a company that today employees 21,000 people.
Both men had tremendous focus, they had a penchant for action, and they had wide-ranging interests which led them to see opportunities that others missed. They were also men who developed tremendous talent stacks, and when they needed to learn a new skill, they made the time and took the effort to learn the new skill. In addition, they were also both to the core family men and they loved and served their communities.
When three years ago, Mitzi became friends with Mark Victor Hansen (famous for the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series) and his wife Crystal, she wondered how many of the same success traits she had observed in her husband and father would be found in Mark.
