Dan Doiron has been a singer, songwriter, musician, educator and recording engineer for years. He often brings his blues sound to house concerts around the region.
“After concerts, I was getting people coming up to me telling me their stories, which were really inspiring,” Doiron says.
Those stories led Doiron, at the age of 58, to establish Live Centre Stage, which offers seminars and workshops where aspiring entrepreneurs can learn skills on how to plan and organize their own centre stages. Participants also get access to Backstage Access Group, an online community where entrepreneurs and anyone pursuing a new passion can share their stories.
Doiron says seniors have skills and characteristics that make them succeed at entrepreneurship. They have behind them the discipline of having worked a day job. Still, he says, seniors just starting out don’t know how to proceed. That’s where Live Centre Stage helps.
