We certainly know that people all over Atlanta are living their best lives over the age of 40, because we hear their stories of personal growth and giving back to others each year during our Over 40 & Fabulous! contest.

This year, we engaged an Over 40 & Fabulous! Advisory Board of experts on topics including volunteerism, fitness, hair care and cosmetic procedures. They provided professional advice on how they got into their fields, and how they’ve grown throughout their careers and personal lives to help inspire us to live our best lives as well.

Linda M. Bolton - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0616At 60, this founder of Stay Faithfully Fit calls herself a “Minister of Fitness” and pursues a life of strength and purpose.

What have you learned about yourself since turning 40?
I know that by applying Christian principles to help the “Body of Christ” achieve total fitness I can be strong, feel young, be active and empowered at any age.

What is your favorite way to give back to your community?
I enjoy conducting health, wellness and fitness seminars for churches, businesses, various military installations and charitable organizations, such as the Atlanta Union Mission for Women.

What advice do you give those not yet 40?
Never give up on your God-given dream or destiny. Run your race, follow your passion, fulfill your purpose … you will WIN!

Susan King - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0616At 54, Susan King, owner of PowerUp30 Power Plate® studio, finds healthy living to be the key for clarity of mind and spirit.

Where do you go for “me” time?
Biking along the Chattahoochee River from West Palisades Trail to Cochran Shoals Trail. Also, my screened-in porch with a magazine or a book.

What is your favorite healthy meal?
Grilled fish and vegetables my husband makes on our Big Green Egg. He is so good on that grill!  I follow that with a healthy version of a home-baked treat. My hobby is cooking and test-baking healthy desserts.

How do you maintain life balance?
This has been a process—I like to have a full day! My husband is teaching me the value of rest. Family time is important to me, so cooking is how I get them all in the same place at once. My most balanced days begin with prayer, asking God to order my day.

Jackie Boatwright-Daus - Sawyer Photography - BSA 0616Wearing the crown of Mrs. Georgia International 2016, Jackie Boatwright-Daus, 49, continues to raise awareness about proper child-care-facility safety legislation.

What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?
Persuading legislative bodies to pass laws can be a daunting task. I was able to get child-care legislation passed in both Georgia and Virginia, which eventually led to federal legislation.

What is your favorite way to give back to your community?
After my son died as a result of injuries he sustained at a state-licensed child-care facility, I’ve dedicated the rest of my life to informing parents and working toward new guidelines for insurance. I share Juan’s Law, named in honor of my son, with other parents, telling them to ask: “Does your center carry liability insurance to cover possible injuries to the children who are entrusted in your care?”

How do you maintain some life  balance?
I believe people make time for the things they really want to do in life —I’ve learned to give a little bit of my time each day to the people and projects I value.
