What a great show with Elena Patrice of WebsitesGiveBack.com!
Elena shares the steps and her mother took to create a new business when funding for their publishing company went away. Wow! Imagine one day you are supporting all kinds of charities with your successful business and the next day you have no business! (well, almost.)
As Elena and her mom, Linda Saker, had a heart to continue supporting charities they found an unmet need they could fill – the non-budget-breaking-professional website! Moreover, a substantial part of each project goes straight to charity in the client’s name.
What struck me most about Elena and her story is the way that she learned to step back and re-define success. It’s a story about triumphing above your own fears and greed and finding that abundance comes through giving!
How exciting to provide a quality product and know you are always in a state of g iving and receiving.
I am inspired to support my charities even more, and to make it easy for others to give as well!
Elena Patrice and her mother, Linda Saker, started Websites Give Back after they lost funding for their childrens book publishing and toy company.
