Shamelle Reveter Founder and Executive Director for Destiny’s Talent Institute of the Arts is joining the show today to share with you her story of faith. Shamelle left Los Angeles, California to move to Arkansas to fulfill her destiny. Now she has a flourishing business and has never been happier doing what she loves.
Starting a nonprofit organization can be challenging, especially the financial aspect of it. When I began my after school performing arts program three years ago, I was in search for anything that would help us out financially. Over the years I have compiled a list of organizations out there that were created specifically for non profits like mine.
Success in Christ is all about helping you and giving you the resources to help you start your business, and be successful. Below are a few of the companies I used when I first began Bearden Productions Performing Arts Studio. I still use a few of these today. I hope this helps you!
