Every business has a purpose, but sometimes it’s more personal. When Tim and Liz Plachta found out that their daughter had special needs, they knew they needed to make some big changes. On this episode of the How to Quit Working Show, Tim and Liz Plachta share their journey to entrepreneurship and starting a non-profit.
After having been entirely volunteer-run for its first four years, Ruby’s Rainbow took on its first full-time Executive Director, Liz Plachta-Co-Founder and mom to Ruby, in 2016 to meet the demands of this rapidly expanding organization. The rest of the organization is still volunteer-run, and is made up of parents, family and friends of people who happen to be rockin’ that extra chromosome. Everyone involved with Ruby’s Rainbow is passionate about spreading the word about these incredible, capable individuals.
Liz’a drive to start Ruby’s Rainbow came from her adoration for her family. Her passion to provide her children with the best inspired her to help other families like hers with educational costs and support, as well as helping to raise standards and expectations of individuals with Down Syndrome. She truly is the driving force behind Ruby’s Rainbow.
Liz resides in Austin, Texas with her handsome Hubby, Tim, Ruby and her oldest daughter and big sis, Ella Mae. They enjoy spending time as a family and look forward to continuing their mission and passion of showing the world just what people who are rockin’ that extra chromosome are made of!!
Tim Plachta, CFP® is the president and founder of Reliant Wealth Management, LLC. His background is in business management, economics and education. Those who know him best say that he is committed, well-calculated and a dynamic thinker. Reliant Wealth Management was conceptualized after Tim’s second daughter, Ruby, was unexpectedly born with Down syndrome. The realization that he may have to help support her into adulthood made him realize he was financially unprepared. Through personal exploration of his own finances, Tim became equally passionate about helping others achieve their financial goals. As a result, Tim opened the doors of Reliant Wealth Management in Austin, Texas and now works with clients to navigate the many financial challenges they face in their lives.
