Your House - How We Built Our Dream House
Your House - How We Built Our Dream House
It was a little over three years ago that author/entertainer and motivational speaker, David Carruthers, came up with an idea for an inspirational coffee shop called Your House. His idea was to inspire kids/youths(adults too) of all ages to be the best they can via inspirational books/other motivational products, as they had a hot cup of java and delicious food products. David then shared his idea with friend and future co founder of Your House Social Enterprise INC., Neaz Adnan. What happened next helped David's dream take flight. Have you heard of a social enterprise? David looked at Neaz with a puzzled look on his face. It sounded like it came from a science fiction film. After listening to Neaz, the inspirational coffee shop was put on hold and Your House Social Enterprise INC. was launched. David believes that when you work together and help others to believe in themselves, anything is possible in life. He has seen this firsthand with the amazing Your House Team and all the volunteers around the globe working hard to make people's dreams come true....today, tomorrow and always.
