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.

Those same Kids that you see in stores and malls, you know the ones with the tats covering their beautiful bodies.

There Is Hope, Inc., is a community based, non-profit outreach program. Since the year 2000, our vision has been to “Empower a Young Generation for the Future”. One of our main goals is to see the young generation turn to God, by taking His message of hope into their schools and communities. We are in the search for like-minded young and older people to join hands to empower the youth (students) with valuable information spiritually and educational. Your ministry or organization can be a vital resource to this united mission.
The devil is a thief, robber, and he desires to kill off our sons and daughters. We realize there is a great famine in the land, not only for the natural food, but for the word of God. And, I will be the first one to say, we have fallen short to arise and shine for the glory of God! It is high time to go out into this world and take back what the devil has stolen, by UNITING as Christians, Youth Leaders, and Community Leaders. We need to sense the heart of God, see His tears for the young generation that is dying without hope and have no vision of a real future.
We are at war for the lives of our sons and daughters, and we know, PRAYER changes things but after Prayer we must put to action what we are instructed to do. The Lord stated to us in His Word (Jeremiah 33:3), “Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.” We believe God, as we bring together youth (students) through “Hope Rall
Michael Giovanni is an American actor of Hispanic descent. Born in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico in 1984, Giovanni got his first true taste of acting after he was discovered by actor Michael K. Williams at a mall in Harrisburg, PA. Williams convinced Giovanni to audition for the HBO hit series "The Wire" (resulting in his first professional acting gig), as well as tutored Giovanni himself, pushing him further to enhance his techniques. This led to Giovanni's introduction to legendary acting coach Mel Williams (TFANG) out of New York.
His stint in an off-Broadway production of "A Streetcar Named Desire," where he portrayed the play's lead character, Stanley Kowalski, to rave reviews. Giovanni followed up with two appearances on Tyler Perry's House of Payne, independent film (Easy Hustle), the highly anticipated blockbuster Dark Knight Rises, and the web series Hamilton Street.
Growing up in a single-parent household, he never forgot where he came from and the help he, his mother and younger brother have received from others. It has moved him to continue the trend so much so that on a number of occasions he has traveled abroad to build medical and educational facilities. His personal mantra, "From the bottom of the map to the top of the globe," has inspired him to travel to Haiti, Africa and Puerto Rico to assist others in need.
Giovanni is also a leader of volunteerism in his community and spends several hours each week counseling other men in an effort to improve their lives.
