Where were you and what were you doing when the idea for your business came to you?

Origin stories are so fascinating and give such fun insight into how businesses + non-profits came to be!


On this week’s Team Takeover episode of the Run like Clockwork Podcast, Clockwork superstar, Evan La Ruffa, shares his origin story for founding his non-profit, IPaintMyMind, which is making an incredible impact in Chicago, IL. He takes an entrepreneurial approach to non-profit work and shares how Clockworking his non-profit increased efficiency + impact.


Topics Evan + Emily cover are:

  • The similarities between a small business and non-profit organization
  • How to increase revenue to directly increase impact + deliver on the big promise
  • A misconception of how non-profit organizations can generate money 
  • How to hire + delegate so that you’re in a position to provide at your highest value level
  • Hiring to serve the QBR (Queen Bee Role) + using the “S Curve”


Evan embodies the core of the QBR + mission of IPaintMyMind: fun + professional! We know you will enjoy this episode and would love to hear what valuable take-aways you get from it! Tag us on Instagram @rlclockwork and @ipaintmymind to let us know you listened!
