The World of Private Foundations: Carl Dimailig
The charitable arm of your for-profit business can easily participate in corporate social responsibility. Carl explains the world of private foundations and explains how you can use private foundations to raise corporate social responsibility.     Conversation Highlights:  {00:45} Background on Guardian Angel Advisors?  {07:57} You can pass down assets for your family to manage {11:00} You can set up a Family Foundation {16:10} Non-articles of nonprofit incorporation, or a minority decision-maker.  {21:15} Lists of foundations.  {25:12} Why the government incentivized public service work.  {29:37} The option to not get a degree. {33:10} What is dynamic paying?    Remarkable quotes:    I started a business with student loans Legally reduce your income tax when they do a charitable donation, also eliminate capital gains tax on investments.  If the foundation is still around and carried on by your kids, you're still giving money every year to causes that your family cares about, and that would be like phase three. I want to be a steward, so the next generation that's on this planet gets to enjoy museums' art.  Let's say it makes 3 billion in profits. It can donate up to 30%. Get a charitable donation deduction, and then from there in their foundation they can start supporting causes and doing something called corporate social responsibility. There are very few degrees that you will need actual schooling for.   Every year there's about $400 million in unused scholarships   Resources:  www.instagram.com/angeladvisersig www.twitter.com/angeladvisers www.facebook.com/GuardianAngelAdvisers www.linkedin.com/in/agentcarld      Bio: Carl Dimailig Carl Dimailig is a  Marine Corps Veteran, entrepreneur, retired chiropractor, and philanthropist who shares the world of private foundations as the charitable arm to your for-profit business, allowing you to easily participate in corporate social responsibility.   Guardian Angel Advisors Our mission is to help entrepreneurs obtain the capital and credit they need to fuel their dreams.  Whether you are just starting your business or looking for millions in capital to expand, we have solutions that can help you fund your endeavors.

Travis talks with Tamara Wright about the solutions to homelessness.  Tamara shares her provable ideas to solve the problem of homelessness in America and what Community Solutions is doing to make it happen.     Conversation Highlights:   {02:47} Introduction to “Community Solutions”.   {03:41} Introduction to “Built for Zero”.  {06:18} How do you start a conversation in the community?   {09:38} How people connect with the organization.   {13:27} What should be tracked?   {19:55} How to explain the program to landlords.  {22:01} The positive solution of guarantee rent.   {24:56} The first step to getting happier, and healthier.   {26:00} Firsthand experience stories.     Remarkable quotes:     You can hop in the river and pull someone out that's drowning, but if you go upstream and you can figure out why it is that they're falling in the river in the 1st place.  Leave nobody behind and make sure that we have a racially equitable system in place.   We're able to house more people than are entering the homelessness system.  Have a childlike curiosity!  Working together to make sure that people not only get housed but remain housed.  The very basic bottom need is shelter  Make sure that people are being taken care of and they're being handed off very warmly to the landlord.   45 communities have achieved a measurable reduction in either chronic or veteran homelessness.     Resources:   https://www.facebook.com/cmtysolutions  https://community.solutions/our-solutions/built-for-zero/       Bio: Tamara Wright  Systems Transformation Advisor  As the Systems Transformation Advisor for Phoenix and Denver, Tamara focuses her energy on transformational change projects that will result in breakthrough reductions in Veteran homelessness in both Phoenix and Denver. Tamara has 13 years of experience working in the government sector both locally and federally, starting her career in Economic Vitality for the City of Scottsdale. in 2011, Tamara was accepted into the prestigious Presidential Management Fellowship program when she began working as a Regional Coordinator for The Department of Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veterans Families program.

Tamara enjoys Broadway musicals, working out, and spending time with her adorable Siamese cat named Reznor.  Community Solutions  Our mission is to create a lasting end to homelessness that leaves no one behind. We envision a more equitable society where homelessness is never inevitable, inescapable, or a way of life.  WHAT WE DO  We don’t simply believe that all communities have the power to end homelessness — we work with the cities and counties making it a reality every day.   Community Solutions is a nonprofit that leads Built for Zero, a movement of more than 80 cities and counties using data to radically change how they work and the impact they can achieve — and proving that it is possible to make homelessness rare and brief. A growing number of communities across the country are proving this is an achievable reality by reaching a milestone known as functional zero.   In order to propel this movement to end homelessness up and over a tipping point, we are working with communities to solve the most persistent challenges that stand in the way. With rigor and data-driven solutions, we are working with communities to: prevent inflow into homelessness from happening in the first place; build and sustain homeless response systems that can continuously end, rather than manage, homelessness for populations across geography; and quickly deliver affordable housing that can close the housing gap. Together, we are proving that homelessness is solvable.    Nonprofit Architect Podcast Links      Website: http://nonprofitarchitect.org    Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NonprofitArchitect     Ultimate Podcast Guide https://www.fatfreecartpro.com/ecom/gb.php?&i=1698463&cl=377219&c=cart&ejc=2&custom=card  Subscribe and leave a review https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nonprofit-architect-podcast/id1481292481  Patreon https://www.patreon.com/NonprofitArchitect  Watch on YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQm8fnR2sHyrmLpV2jKYajA  Listen to these other great podcasts from Veterans. https://nonprofitarchitect.org/veteran-podcast-network/  Want help getting your podcast started? https://nonprofitarchitect.org/podcast-production-services/

How to multiply yourself:  Johnathan Kraus
Do you wish you could multiply yourself? In today’s episode, Johnathan Kraus explains how to multiply yourself through delegation and leadership training. He will share the importance of investing in your team and creating confidence in them. How can you motivate your staff to take ownership and initiative?   Conversation Highlights:  {00:51} Background on love, never fails international.  {02:48} Living in India and learning the Hindi language.  {03:20} How to multiply yourself through delegation and raising up leaders. {04:46} The first hire   {07:54} Focus on leadership, investing in your team, investing to get to know them.  {16:13} Creating a hostile work environment {20:41} The playbook.  {26:25} Taking ownership, showing initiative.  {31:15} What are some things that you write down?  {37:01} Why you need to build confidence in your staff.  {41:05} Why you should start small. {46:34} The need to have someone who could encourage and teach.      Remarkable quotes:  Many studies show that if you can give a child education in India, you're going to take him farther away from poverty.  You can't delegate something and then stand over their shoulder and expect them to do it. Delegation without accountability equals chaos. Either there was a checklist that you didn't follow, there was a checklist that you did follow that wasn't correct or you tried to do something without a checklist.  The abundance mindset versus the scarcity mindset.  You're instilling confidence in them.      Resources:  https://www.facebook.com/kraus777 https://www.facebook.com/loveneverfailsindia jkraus@loveneverfailsindia.com        Bio: Johnathan Kraus Jonathan didn’t always walk in the freedom, peace, and joy of living his dream job and calling in life. For many years he lived a drug addicted life. He began using drugs as a teenager which led him to drop out of school at 14, incarcerated at 15, and shot at 3 times by 16. At age 19 God radically saved him and by age 20 he was involved in children's ministry at his Church. Founder and President Dr. Jonathan Kraus is a Rutgers University graduate. He went on to earn his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry at Trinity Seminary. He also earned his Ph.D in Counseling from Northwestern Seminary. ANSWERING THE CALL TO INDIA A former college professor and grade schoolteacher in USA, Jonathan left the comfort of his life to answer the call of God in 2010. Through much prayer and wise counsel, God challenged Jonathan to start this organization, Love Never Fails International. When God called Jonathan to work with the children of the slums and streets of Mumbai, he knew this was God’s purpose in his life. He counted the cost and stepped out in faith not doubting God would provide. By our founder's little step of obedience trusting in God, LNFI is serving children from coast to coast today in India meeting children's needs physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The vision of this non profit is to rescue, protect, and raise children in India to live a life of purpose, joy, and freedom.   Nonprofit Architect Podcast Links     Website: http://nonprofitarchitect.org   Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NonprofitArchitect    Ultimate Podcast Guide https://www.fatfreecartpro.com/ecom/gb.php?&i=1698463&cl=377219&c=cart&ejc=2&custom=card Subscribe and leave a review https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nonprofit-architect-podcast/id1481292481 Patreon https://www.patreon.com/NonprofitArchitect Watch on YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQm8fnR2sHyrmLpV2jKYajA Listen to these other great podcasts from Veterans. https://nonprofitarchitect.org/veteran-podcast-network/ Want help getting your podcast started? https://nonprofitarchitect.org/podcast-production-services/

How to use Unused Hotel Rooms as Fundraisers with John Renken
How can you give away products that are unused by other people and actually ask for a donation at the same time? Travis talks with John Renken, who discovered an adventure in the travel industry. Helping people travel, while raising money for charity.  John is a former United States Army Ranger, former professional MMA fighter, the founder of several churches, and he is also a successful entrepreneur with a proven track record of leadership and sales.  Conversation Highlights:  {00:58} Introduction of Guest {02:53} Having an invitation to act  {10:00} When you’re not running a nonprofit or employed by the nonprofit.  {13:18} How to connect people with the mission in a way that sense to them {17:32} The steps you need to take to get involved   {23:11} New cool things coming down the line Remarkable quotes:  This is your invitation to take action because knowing is only half the battle.  I just did what we always do in the army, which was I just did some black backward planning.  It's not just value for the organization, it's value for the donor as well.  The Super basic bare-bones way to really host an event and get some money flowing in.  Sales isn't a dirty word.  If it's the same environment It's not stimulating, it's not engaging the dog will lose interest, get bored, and you're not going to get the wins, meaning the opportunity to reward the animal for doing the thing you want.  Resources:  https://linktr.ee/TacticalTraveler  www.johnrenken.com/hello  https://www.facebook.com/JohnRenkenTacticalTraveler  https://www.instagram.com/tacticaltravler/  https://twitter.com/Tacticaltravler  https://www.youtube.com/c/TacticalTraveler   Bio: John Renken Over the past several decades, John Renken has fought for what he believes in and for he wants in all aspects of his life.  John is a former United States Army Ranger, former professional MMA fighter, the founder of several churches, and he is also a successful entrepreneur with a proven track record of leadership and sales.    A self-proclaimed “scrapper” since childhood, John has always faced life’s greatest challenges with passion and a desire to continually evolve as a leader. John has always been inspired by physical challenges and a strong competitive spirit, which first started at age 15.  This is when he began training in Martial Arts where he would later compete in 70 professional fights.     John growing up was not a Christian. In his teenage years he was introduced to witchcraft and eventually moved into Satanism. While in the Army John was introduced to Christianity by his squad leader and gave his life to Christ 2 days before leaving for Ranger School. In 1995 John made the decision to leave the Army and pursue a call to preaching. He graduated from Bible College in 2000 and he moved to Ft. Campbell, KY where he planted a church.    With over 60 pro fights in the early days of MMA John was a pioneer in Mixed Martial Arts. He won 6 World Titles, was voted the King of Leg Locks, and had the KO of the Year in the world in 2008. John was inducted into the MMA Hall of Fame. It was this background that allowed John to begin training Special Forces.        More recently, John found a new adventure in the travel industry. It has been the perfect mission for his talents and abilities that have made John successful so far.  Through all his adventures, John has been a “Tactical Traveler”; you will not find anyone better suited to lead you on your next personal vacation or business adventure that provides more time, more freedom and more of life's special moments.    “The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” -John Renken    Nonprofit Architect Podcast Links     Website: http://nonprofitarchitect.org   Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NonprofitArchitect    Ultimate Podcast Guide https://www.fatfreecartpro.com/ecom/gb.php?&i=1698463&cl=377219&c=cart&ejc=2&custom=card Subscribe and leave a review https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nonprofit-architect-podcast/id1481292481 Patreon https://www.patreon.com/NonprofitArchitect Watch on YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQm8fnR2sHyrmLpV2jKYajA Listen to these other great podcasts from Veterans. https://nonprofitarchitect.org/veteran-podcast-network/ Want help getting your podcast started? https://nonprofitarchitect.org/podcast-production-services/
