Our new blog series: 50+ Entrepreneurs



We decided we would do a blog series on 50+ Entrepreneurs because many of our interviewees are considering the option of founding their own company as a way to create a job for themselves.

To get this project underway, we contacted Lynne Cutler, president of the Women’s Opportunity Resource Center (WORC), in Philadelphia, Penn.  WORC runs a Start Smart Training Program for people who have a business idea, but need help to implementing it.  Lynne and her associate Devon Allen put us in touch with five graduates of the Start Smart program, and we interviewed them last Wednesday and Thursday at their places of business.

Starting in February, we will begin posting  video interviews with our 50+ Entrepeneurs to our blog.   Our first five interviewees whose stories will go online are:

Gerry Fioriglio, R.N., founder of Family Caregivers located in Pennsburg, Penn., which provides private duty home care, eldercare management, healthcare staffing, educational outreach and support groups.

Lorraine Campman, founded of Music Oasis LifeLong Learning Center in Collegeville, Penn.  She inspires creativity and teaches music to adults and seniors.


Lorraine with several of her students in music class.

Deborah Ramsey, opened Natural Wellness & Spa in Philadelphia, Penn. for women.  The spa offers massages, nutritional counseling and natural products.

Elsie Bowen, founder of Precious Jewels Day Care in Philadelphia, Penn., with two of the children she cares for on a daily basis.

Regina Mason opened Virago Baking Company in Lansdale, Penn. three years ago.  The bakery  and cafe specializes in all-natural, organic, vegan and gluten free cakes, cupcakes, pastries and lunch foods.

Virago baked goods!

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

Greetings from Idaho! I'm bored at your workplace thus i chosen to have a look at your website on my small iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you present here and can't wait to have a look when I get back home. I'm shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my small cellular phone .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, good blog!

Great site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I'd really like to be a part of group where I can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!
