Episode 68: How to Start a 501c3 and Restore Hope with Annette Houston

Today you will meet Annette Houston, the executive director of Ms. Houston’s Caring Hands Inc.,  an organization she started herself.  What is so amazing about this compared to anyone else who has started an organization is she filed for 501c3 with little to no experience on how to and figure it all out herself.

She started  this organization because of her past experience as being in foster care, being a mom at 15, and coming from a abusive home . She was diagnosed with chronic depression but never gave up on her dream of giving back to the system that raised her. Her goal is to give the support and understanding that she wanted when in a time in her life where she felt alone, unwanted, abandon, and actually hated herself. She wishes she had the support and understanding that she now gives to the young mothers she works with. Her life experiences taught her the true effects that physical, sexual, and mental abuse can have on a person.  She believes you never get over the trauma but you find a way to live with it.  She suffered all forms of abuse but she feels the emotional abandonment, and mental abuse is what hurt her the most and had the worst affects on her life.  Abuse left her so vulnerable, but she fights to be all she can be despite it all.

Episode 67: How to Rest as a Busy Person with Danielle Roberts

Do you get a weird panic feeling when you stop to rest? Like- Oh my gosh there is too much to do, I cannot possibly rest.  Ok me too.  I have been this way as a child and today’s episode is all about how to reframe rest and use it as a skill in productivity.  Rest is required for success but the words “grit” “hustle” and “grind” have become so glamorized that people are forgetting that our brains need rest in order to rejuvenate. Today you will meet Danielle Roberts, who wrote the book Created For This with you, the Jesus Loving Entrepreneur in mind. She knows what it’s like to juggle #allthethings in business and wrestle with the feeling of wanting to go deep with Jesus but not feel like there are enough hours in the day to make it all happen.

In addition to writing Created For This, she is an Accountability Coach, small business solutions creator, mentor, author and podcaster, wife, mom and Navy veteran. She has spent the last three years building a business online and spent countless hours listening to frustrated Christian entrepreneurs who felt as though no one really “got” them.  She created a free tool for you to learn how to better manage your time and can be found at: daniellemroberts.lpages.co/time-batching
