    Lara Dolan: The Business Impact of Volunteerism

    in Entrepreneur

    Today Steve Gordon and Dana Reeves will be talking about a variety of topics, from the best cities to launch your startup, to whether or not you should drain your 401k to start your company, and if you’re having trouble figuring out what business to start, we’ll share 7 hot, but kind of wacky, ideas that entrepreneurs should consider.


    They’ll also be talking with special guest, Lara Dolan, about the impact her volunteerism has had on her business and her family.


    Currently a real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty Consultants, Lara specializes in residential and equestrian properties and lives here in Alpharetta with her husband and two daughters. She got her start in business with a number of sales and marketing positions with technology and consulting companies. After leaving the work force for a number of years while her daughters were young, she chose real estate as her marketplace re-entry point. Lara started her own company, Kismet Management, to help clients get through the real estate down-market by finding qualified tenants for their single-family homes, and managing those properties on behalf of her clients. In 2013, Lara sold Kismet Management and turned her focus toward traditional real estate, creating the Craft Dolan Team at Keller Williams.


    In addition to work and family, Lara passionately supports the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, chairing several large fundraising events, and as a member of the Georgia CFF Volunteer Board. In 2006, family friends in New York lost their then 13-year-old daughter to cystic fibrosis. Suddenly it wasn’t enough to just write a check – and that’s when Lara’s commitment to raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was born.

If you have ever wondered how you might do something similiar or become a volunteer for an organization such as this, then this show is for you. You will meet one of the principle architects and one of the 5 founders  for HOOP, Dr. Shang Ju Li - from Taiwan,   Alison Schmierer, HOOP's Program Director- Peru, John Vecchio, a volunteer teacher from New York state, Christian Collazos, a Volunteer Teacher from Peru and former student of HOOP, and Amina Belaïdi , Program Coordinator Intern for HOOP who lives in France.


    Hoop’s goal is to make sure these parents receive their high school education so that their children will also receive a secondary school education. This is their way of ensuring that the cycle of poverty can be broken in the next generation.
