Story Time (02:16)

  • Bryce recently moved into her fixer-up after a lot of intense work was done, then once it became “livable” they quickly got project lazy. The same thing can be applied to marketing - oftentimes once people "finish" the job they mentally check out, so work to find where you have gotten lazy and take charge of it.
  • Jackie shares why the framework of builder websites shouldn’t be editable for everybody.

      360 Topic of the Week: Homes For Hope (32:20) Jeff Rutt[/caption] Kevin Oakley is joined byJeff Rutt, CEO of Keystone Custom Homes and the founder of HOPE International, andMatthew Baehr,Executive Director ofHOPE International, to talk about Homes for HOPE International (www.hopeinternational.org). They discuss how they’ve been able to utilize the 200 million dollars worth of donations they’ve received so far and disperse it into 1.36 billion dollars of microloans to help people in poverty. 

    They also discuss:

    • How they, unfortunately, learned about "toxic charity” and how they pivoted their program to microloans
    • How they have been able to achieve a 98% repayment rate for microloans 
    • How a donor-advised fund works
    • How they strive not just to teach a man to fish, but to invest in someone who already knows how to fish. Which includes the story of how a $20 loan for chairs bloomed into a life-changing wedding rental business.
    • How they started getting involved with trades
