“I told Garrett that once I joined Hygge, I had a new lease on life,” she admitted with a laugh. “Because we’re all virtual, it feels so different not to have my team nearby. It’s nice to be in a community like Hygge with a different team – a team of [Hygge] coworkers here.”
There are added benefits, too – one that virtual workers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs know well. Beavers jokingly – albeit seriously – admitted that she has been able to take everything out of the car – and into a place of work. “I have my car back; we have the study in our house back, I can get actually get out of the house, and interact,” she said.
Beavers ability to get out of the house and interact will be to key to how Mama Hope develops one of its newest communities – Charlotte.
In 2016, Mama Hope launched a new program to pilot a U.S-based initiative right here in Charlotte’s Grier Heights neighborhood.
This new program – the first of its kind – is designed to support high school girls in the development of a youth entrepreneurship platform. The goal is to build a business out of it that has the potential generate income to support local youth.
“What Mama Hope is doing in Charlotte is a fresh approach and really focused on sustainability,” Beavers shared.
As much success as both Mama Hope and Beavers are experiencing, what’s all this really about for her?
“I think we all have a deep sense of connectedness,” she said. “So much of our future is determined by the family we’re born into, and I don’t think that’s just, so if we can reach out and connect with each other and help each other that helps me, too. I learn so much more about humanity and about how to be a better human being because of it.”
In that sense, I don’t think Hannah Beavers has an important job. I think has an important calling.
