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!
