SORT BY Relevancy
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.
This week, Najja Brown will share her family's personal alzheimer's journey. Najja and her four sisters have been navigating their mother's care for the last ten years. Some of the descriptors Najja has used are: challenging, emotional, hope, and light. In fact, she's even likened some past moments to a "black tunnel." Yet, she readily adds that light, hope, and even joy can and does surface. I am convinced that Najja's experience will bring some, if not all who tune in to Monday's podcast a renewed vision for hope and light.
Najja, a native of Seattle, Washington attended the University of Washington and City University. Najja holds a Bachelor's degree in Economics and a Master's degree in Public Administration. As a single mother she reared two sons, who are now adults, and has two grandsons ages six and eight. She also teaches adult women's Bible study and mentors women of all ages. A true believer and participant in service to her community and volunteerism, Najja is fluent in American Sign Language and very active in the Deaf community. Join us on Monday, June 29th at 3:30 pm, PST.
June is alzheimer's and brain awareness month. If you missed Kristine Broome's helpful interview last week, it's available in the archives. Kristine is the caregiver services coordinator with the Family Support Caregiver Program in Seattle.

Thank you for listening to Happiness Index and we are continuing our conversation on hope and service. Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Vaclav Havel, former President of the Czech Rebubic said, Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. We are convinced that everyone who gives of their time to serve others are deeply rooted in hope. Hope is an optimistic state of confidence and an anticipation that service is hope. It encourages to believe that your giving of yourself will make a difference. Hope is a cornerstone of volunteerism. Our focus today will be on the value of hope to inspire us to serve and how hope and service is a path to happiness. Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio. Join us in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.

Freedom of speech is the political right to communicate one's opinions and ideas using one's body and property to anyone who is willing to receive them. The termfreedom of expression is sometimes used synonymously, but includes any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, as with libel, slander, obscenity, sedition(including, for example inciting ethnic hatred), copyright violation, revelation of information that is classified or otherwise Freedom of speech may be legally curtailed in some religious legal systems and in secular jurisdictions where it is found to cause religious offense, such as the BritishRacial and Religious Hatred Act 2006.
Drew Alexander is the BMW Motorcycle Manager for Battly Cycles. Bikers have a stereotype that is almost never true - Drew's somewhat grizzled look notwithstanding. One thing that is true of most bikers and biking clubs is that they do a lot of fund-raising for various causes.
Drew is a volunteer with Wellspring International Outreach, which focuses on supporting orphaned an otherwise abandoned children across the world. Drew has built homes, playgrounds, and other support structures in South Africa. He'll talk with us about the desperation he has seen and the rise in what is known as voluntourism.
