Stay at Home Mom to Executive Director of TCC Gives

Julie Moorehead 

Julie on Insta

TCC Gives  - a foundation for TCC employees to invest in causes for people, animals, the environment. 

A high touch, deeply engaging program to connect front line employees in the TCC retail stores selling phones and cases to changing lives in their own community.  Giving from "their why".

Personal Engagement sometimes counts more than a more money.

They're inspiring others in their community. 

More than a Phone  - 

Donate your old phone today!!!

TCC gives phones and data service to shelters in their markets. It's a beautiful program! TCC is using their unique talents to serve their communities. 

Finding work with purpose isn't always found with money as the motivator.  Julie had the opportunity that she didn't have to work to support her family, yet she NEEDED and WANTED to work and make a difference!

From Stay at Home Mom to her Masters Degree in Philanthropic Studies and Executive Director of TCC Gives.  There's no right and wrong way to find your calling.  Follow your interests, curiosity and passion. 

Julie's journey started with a dog rescue while 8 months pregnant with her second child! 

I don't know one Badass Woman that hasn't had a story of struggle and sadness that helped lead her to find her place in the world. 

Working, Going to School, Raising a Family - ALL AT ONCE!

Julie shares what she learned in these struggles that serve her well today while running an amazing non profit TCC Gives.  

  • scrappy
  • resources
  • connections
  • big purpose drives hard work and fun - work to be proud of

How Tony Robbins changed her life. 

"Why can't I?" 

When you believe in yourself, you lean in and get more out of experiences and opportunities.  It's a game changer. 


Julie mentions the 5 T's 

  1. Treasure
  2. Testimony 
  3. Time 
  4. Talents
  5. Temple 

Culture of Good - (TCC -The Cellular Connection)

Lessons from a Breast Cancer Survivor turned Entrepreneur

Cari Hahn is a Bright Light.  There's no other way to describe her which makes perfect sense that her Breast Cancer Survivor story includes starting a company called Karma Candles.   

 There's laughter and love and grief in this story.  And there are beautiful messages for all of us in how Cari writes her story from diagnosis to today.  

Having a strong community increases your survival!



My journey toward light is not unlike many others. Darkness, for me, came April 15, 2016. A breast cancer diagnosis flipped my world on its side, knocking the sun out of my sky altogether. Throughout my treatment journey mission remained steadfast -- to create good in the world.


That was the start of Karma Candles. Karma Candles are all natural and handmade, from start to finish and environmentally-safe. They are products you can introduce into your life and home, without fear. They are hand-poured, hand-wicked with natural cotton and lead and zinc-free wicks, and each batch is crafted and measured with care, in Carmel, Indiana. Our charitable works includes donating candles to current cancer warriors to provide a glimmer of light and hope.


Wishing you life, love, light and good karma -- always!

Your Brain & Your Business Needs ART

Did you want to do something artistic but were encouraged to get a "real job"?  

We're learning more about the NEED we have for art and music in our lives.  Our brains are wired to need the engagement that art and music provide.  Art is healing and inspiring. 

We are not machines, yet much of our work talks and treats us as such.  Our human brains have nuance.  We are each unique and need the nuance that art and music provides. 

"As the workplace evolves and asks us to be more creative, Art needs to become a component of what we do and what we value." - Jill Lehman
