Live Your Dream Story

Live Your Dream Foundation was founded in 2010 by the Young Family, David Young, founder, and president of Paragon Wealth Management (www.ParagonWealth.com), daughter Katie Bunnell and Shannon Golladay. Its mission is to support single mother families by providing scholarships for women who have aspirations for higher education to better provide for their children. The story began when Katie Bunnell experienced being a single mother after her husband Byron unexpectedly passed away in 2005. Byron was not only a beloved family member but also a dear friend and colleague employed at Paragon Wealth Management at the time. Byron's death was an unexpected shock to everyone who knew him. He added joy and meaning to many people's lives.

Suddenly, Katie was left to provide for her 3-month-old daughter. After taking some time to grieve, she decided her best first step would be to attend college to receive her bachelor's degree. She searched for scholarships but had difficulty finding any scholarships for her situation. Notwithstanding, Katie persevered and completed her bachelor's degree in just two and a half years from Utah Valley University.

Katie uses the foundation she created with her family to give scholarships to single mothers in Utah. All scholarships go to helping these women gain an education to be able to provide for their families. They may attend any university, college, or technical school; the scholarships range from $500-$3,000. Scholarships funds are paid directly to the school in both fall and winter/spring semesters. The scholarship recipients have the opportunity to be reconsidered for the scholarship multiple semesters.

Our foundation is unique because 100% of the funds raised directly benefit single mothers in Utah. The operation is entirely volunteer-operated, and there are no paid employees. Katie runs the foundation as a labor of love, which is a lot of work, but she is grateful to be able to make a difference in these families lives. We are thankful for Paragon Wealth Management; they donate all the funds for any overhead costs of operation.

Live Your Dream would not be possible without Katie's family, her four children and husband, Devin Bunnell, and the sacrifice of fantastic board members. They volunteer their time and efforts to allow single mother families to gain an education. Katie enjoys spending time outdoors, playing sports, boating, and working in the yard. You can always find her playing practical jokes, giving meaningful advice, and finding ways to serve her friends and family.


Mary.app Mission

Local gardens and bakeries abound in our community but don't have the simple platform to list thier products. My mission was to simplify and automate the listing process and provide a platform for local growers and bakeries to expand and grow thier reach. This patent pending SMS Artificial Intelligence has proven to be the first step in connecting these vendors and customers locally. - Mary
