Late Blooming Entrepreneurs

What are the greatest rewards that come from starting a business when you’re older?  In this article from The Globe and Mail, writer Stacey Stein asked five Canadian “boomerpreneurs” about various aspects of business ownership, including what’s made it all worthwhile.  Here’s what they had to say:

Dean Shaver, 58 — Founder and CEO of Canadian Safety Inspections, Inc., which performs safety audits for the oil and gas industry, mining companies and other businesses concerned about workplace safety.  Greatest reward:  His employees, who are “a huge source of pride.”

Corrine McIsaac, 51 — President and Founder of Health Outcomes Worldwide, which  offers consultation services, data analytics and a software application for healthcare professionals (Corrine is a nurse by training). Greatest reward:  “We’re helping people get better every day. And that keeps you going every day.”

Glenn Cox, 50 — Founder and president of Zengo Innovations Inc., which sells the RuptureSeal (a product he invented). Greatest reward: Being able to do something he loves.
