Feisty Side of Fifty

To these ends, our guest, Cheryl Benton, has created the most wonderful media company, go-to resource and newsletter for boomer women called The Three Tomatoes.  Now, she has added to her numerous offerings aimed at our age group by authoring a second inspiring look at growing older as a woman in today’s culture.

They’re stimulating, fun and real page-turners for sure!  If you’re fed up dealing with the invisibility factor, you will want to be sure catch this lively interview celebrating all things aging in style!


The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
