Business Incubator is purpose behind Julie Ellen Robbins Foundation

Takes some organizing, we are an amazing team of passion hard at work pulling together the tasks, budgets, and schedule to lift ‘Wisdom of Elders’ off the ground. Thanks to the efforts of Jeanne Rasmussen and Dr. Cliff Robbins, President & Chair of the Julie Ellen Robbins Foundation.

As many of you might know, Jeanne Rasmussen is the first member of Sisterhood Ohana to experience the joy of ‘Design By Heart’ passion-based architecture. By exploring her Truth Within with the aid of LoveLiving Wellness online workbook, Jeanne discovered what she needed for her spiritual temple to include to bring her passion to life.

Should you desire to learn more about ‘Wétū’ and the ‘Design By Heart, Built With Confidence’ offered by Sisterhood Ohana please sign up here.

With an introduction by the University of Hawai’i Small Business Development Center in Hilo, we have partnered with Carbonario CPA as our financial management team. And for the very important people we serve, for our employees we have selected ProService Hawai’i as the best in the state to bring full employee benefits to life for us.

Sisterhood Ohana is proud to offer Alternative Homes Hawai’i’ On The Job training. As part of the business incubator that Julie Ellen Robbins Foundation serves, Single Mothers will be provided a Certificate Program as a benefit of their employment from the business incubator.

The Certificate Program is more than just a job, it’s a One Hand Up experience. We are currently interviewing human resource enthusiasts to hire the help we need with our online One Hand Up workbook. The candidate chosen will create brochure for 'Awakening Your Truth Within', define and offfer LoveLiving Awakening Certification Training Program, and publish LoveLiving Truth Within workbook for Employees.

The first Certificate Program project will be to build a scaled model of Jeanne's ‘Wétū’ on Hoku’s trailer. With action from employees building Jeanne’s scaled model we can create ‘Wisdom of Elders' ‘Wétū’ on Land Trust options for ‘Garden In Paradise’.

We are super excited for the land trust ‘ Garden In Paradise’ will be providing Sisterhood Ohana a location to prove the business incubator concept. Then it’s off to the politicians, Tim Richards, Cindy Evans, Russell Rudermen, and the amazing Jen Ruggles, as we discuss 20 acres of state-owned land for Sisterhood Ohana to expand the function of Dr. Cliff Robbins business incubator.
