It has been a great pleasure working with Center Stage Media Project and founder Marleen Sulivan. In the summer of 2015, Net4Seniors competed at the Teen Entrepreneur Academy (TEA) at Concordia University in Irvine, CA where Marleen helped catalyze the start of Net4Seniors as a business. At first, the idea of Net4Seniors was rejected by the rest of Isabella’s team and the staff didn’t have any suggestions on the idea. It was only Center Stage that believed and helped her into creating a compelling elevator pitch so she could convince her team to present Net4Seniors at the competition. Even though Net4Seniors didn’t win, Center Stage continued the support and enthusiasm. As a result of TEA, Centerstage connected Net4Seniors with a testimonial from Dr George Fields, Chief Medical Officer of CareMore Medical Group, and a personal friend of Center Stage Director Marleen Sullivan. TEA is an outstanding program, without them Net4Seniors wouldn’t have met Center Stage Media Project.
Under the non-profit umbrella of Center Stage, Net4Seniors was able to apply for and receive the Youth Service America/Disney Summer of Creativity Grant. Net4Seniors was operating under Center Stage’s non-profit status, from the beginning, and did not charge any override on Isabella’s class income. After TEA, Centerstage was providing phone
conferences, promoted Net4Seniors through an interview on RMC Radio. In addition, Center Stage booked and accompanied Net4Seniors to be on the show Health From the Inside Out featuring Reverend Helena Titus founder of PowerGirl Ministries, a program that seeks to direct urban woman towards success in life. Center Stage also attended and coordinated news coverage for a Net4Seniors training event with The Valley Chronicle out of Hemet, CA.
Center Stage helped Isabella understand how important media is to accomplish any vision. Center Stage drove hundreds of miles and spent countless hours on Net4Seniors, as well as helping Isabella personally without any charge. Net4Seniors has proudly served over 45 seniors thanks to the support of Marleen Sullivan and Center Stage Media Project.
