r Looking for a new goal after finding business success? The answer is to help others succeed and that is the current passion of Christy Clark.
Clark’s first business was a photography studio, Cheapshots. At one time she had 25 employees and took photos from Salt Lake City to St. George.
Clark became close friends with a woman who worked for a neighboring business, and when the owner decided to sell, the friend was afraid she would lose her job. She was 77 years old and didn’t know if she could find another job.
Clark bought the neighboring business so she could keep her friend working and successfully ran the two businesses as separate entities. She has also has owned a clothing boutique, been an author and a health coach.
She refers to herself as self-taught in everything from playing the piano to photography to running a successful business. Clark has also been a student of human behavioral psychology as it applies to business and personal achievement. She has been blessed with the vision to help others run their own business. At this time in her life, she aspires to be a motivational speaker.
Clark has joined forces with Jamis O’Brien who owns the Food Forever Foundation. His goal is to purchase farms across the nation and grow the food to distribute to those who cannot afford to purchase their food. The farms will be self-sustaining and donate the excess food. The foundation currently owns a farm in Arkansas and one in Missouri.
O’Brien believes that if each family in the nation donated $10 per month he could solve U.S. hunger and begin working with other countries. This sounds like a worthy concept to be followed up on.
