    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.

    Hope, Faith & Service: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  Today we will continue to explore the ideas we hold about Hope, Faith & Service as a path to happiness.  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.  Faith is a sense of knowing and a tapping into a deep belief of what will be.  We will deepen our understanding of race, hope and service as implicated in our book Beyond Fear, we explored these issues personally, communally and in-depth. Vaclav Havel said it best that, Hope is not prognostication. It is an orientation of the spirit, an orientation of the heart; it transcends the world that is immediately experienced, and is anchored somewhere beyond its horizons.   Service is the practice of bringing our hopes to life.  It is an action – an art of being helpful to another.  Join the conversation and share your wisdom on Hope, Faith & Service: A Path to Happiness by calling (347) 539-5818

    @iamOlaLafa talks This Is Your American Dream w/ @1loveAsh

    in Pop Culture

    It’s amazing to see people of our community, country, give back to their fellow citizens. Oladipo Olafunmiloye who is also known as Lafa is one man who deserves more than this recognition. Oladipo is a well known in the business of remodeling and construction. He has been successful in his lane and has decided to give back to his community. At his Gambrills Mansion, Oladipo has hosted small numbers of friends, family, employees and spent time at least two Saturday’s each month, feeding the needy. Oladipo has taken it further, he recently had an exclusive viewing for a project he was working on. A program that helps families in the no income to low income bracket.


    We were quite privileged to witness the great things that Oladipo has been set in this world to do. As we approached the Gambrills Mansion, we were directed and ushered in an orderly manner, given a small goodie bag & the opportunity to enjoy such a beautiful house.


    His project, “This Is Your American Dream™” is a reality-based television series that promotes volunteerism and provides free and clear homes to economically disadvantaged families and/or families who have loved ones with life-threatening illnesses or disabilities. The program focuses on those families/individuals that have never had a chance to own their own piece of “The American Dream”, perhaps as a result of their circumstances such as Breast Cancer, Autism, HIV /AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, wounded veteran, homelessness etc.

    Continuing our conversation on alzheimer's

    in Caregiving

    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.
