In this episode of Nonprofit Architect, Travis talks with Juri Love, author, actor, motivational speaker, and single mother of two. Juri talks about what no nonprofit wants to talk about. Closing a nonprofit. When is it time to close the nonprofit? What is the process like? How do you move on after closing the nonprofit? I hope you enjoy this conversation with Juri Love.


Conversation Highlights: 

{00:30} Introduction of Juni Love

{12:10} How to keep your spirits up as you're working through challenges 

{17:49} When you must shut down a nonprofit.  

{21:20} Moving on after healing from the trauma of closing a nonprofit

{22:50} Can a diverse lifestyle prevent you from being successful in one venture. 

{25:40} Finding your priorities as a mom  

{29:38} Working with high school and college students with internships.

{38:44} Putting systems in place so the work goes on if you leave.  


Remarkable quotes: 


Start with rescues in high crime areas where you can be an intervention for the kids to not go to jail. 

It's so easy in non-profit work to get bogged down by all the things that need to be done to run the program, let alone delivering the services that you want to do.

It's important to set boundaries.

When you start a nonprofit, people get very excited; nobody tells you how to stop.

There are no good answers and that helped me to become a great journalist.
