In the Business of Redemption | EP 264: Holly Christine Hayes, Sanctuary Project

Business with Purpose

My guest this week is Holly Christine Hayes, founder and CEO of Sanctuary Project, a survivor-run nonprofit social enterprise in Austin, Texas, employing and empowering women who’ve survived lives of trafficking, violence, and addiction. As a survivor herself, Holly knows the path to recovery can be long and rocky. Her vision and leadership create a safe space for other survivors to grow in practical skills, unleash their creativity, embrace their femininity, and heal their hearts – all in community with other survivors. Holly is an award-winning author, podcaster and coveted women's ministry and business leadership speaker. She and her husband, Jeff, enjoy life on a hobby farm, with their chickens, goats, cows, dogs, and the newest addition to the farm, their daughter Havana, who they welcomed two years ago. 6:15 – Holly 101 Holly was a trafficking survivor and now spends her days focusing on redemption and telling her story. Her trafficking lasted a few months, but she has had a rich life since. Although she was trafficked, that’s no who she is. She now has a jewelry line and helps other women. 10:32 – Glorifying difficult stories Society often glorifies difficult stories and gruesome details. We should focus on how people became respectable members of society and turned their lives around. The pornography of pain is a real thing. 16:36 – A rad life The rad life Holly has today didn’t come overnight. She now has freedom in Christ and fought hard for it. If you’re in a tough journey, be patient with yourself. You’ll experience failures and successes. It’s important to have those life experiences. 21:59 – Helping women Holly helps women with therapeutic tools and Biblical tools. Many of the women struggle with self-hatred and self-esteem issues. Holly surrounds them with positive feedback and beautiful things. 25:28 – Starting a non-profit Holly started her career as a shoe shiner and then worked in real estate and fashion before starting her non-profit. 31:38 – Challenges in business Holly never expected her business to be as successful as it is. She found a much larger market for it than she imagined. Doors have swung wide open, and it’s an interesting problem to have. Her biggest challenge is accepting help and giving up some control. 48:42 – On the horizon Holly is excited to have some new products coming out for the holidays. She has an expanded stain glass collection coming. 49:31 – Get to know you Why start a farm? She lived in Paris before moving to Austin and was used to cheaper prices for goat cheese. She and her husband joked about getting a goat. Long story short, she now has goats but never milks them. FEATURED QUOTES Because my internal world is well, my external world is well as well. I can make decisions for myself and set boundaries for myself to keep that world well. I want survivors, I want women to feel so empowered that they are not their past. They are not their story. Yes, I was trafficked, but that’s not the entirety of my story or who I am. This rad life I have today didn’t come overnight.

Episode 36: From Surviving to Thriving with Holly Christine Hayes

A Love Like This

Human Trafficking is one of those things we often hear about, think about for a few minutes and then brush it aside. A large part of that dismissal comes with a sense of misunderstanding and representation. Trafficking is often associated with third world developing countries. Holly Christine Hayes is not only someone who has experienced sexual trafficking but has devoted her life to helping other survivors. Not overseas, but right in her home of Austin Texas. Human trafficking is the process of trapping people through the use of violence, deception or coercion and exploiting them for financial, sexual or personal gain. The most common cases in developed countries occur in relationships often founded in addiction and distress. Holly runs The Sanctuary Project, a not for profit organisation devoted to helping survivor return to work and their lives. Learn more here: https://sanctuaryproject.com/about/
