I can't believe a year ago we started the Wendi Atwood Rogers Memorial Fund. I wish the reason for creating the Fund and the idea of free mentorship was conceived with Wendi and not after her sudden death. As many of her family members and friends still can't believe she is gone, her positive attitude, hard work to support her community both personal and professional, still survives.
In 2017, myself and my co-founders created the Memorial Fund, the concept of With Wendi's Help, organized and hosted a successful FREE half-day mentorship program held at El Centro College in Dallas, Texas. We did a trial run with an incredible guest speaker, Vinny Minchillo, who taught attendees how to sell themselves like a Super Bowl Commercial. It was better than we expected, and we can't wait to take the show on the road. We were able to support the Fund and our ideas for future programs through a speaking opportunity.
For 2018, we want to double up our efforts. We cannot grant out money to community programs without raising enough funds. My hope is that by the end of 2018, we will be in a position to grant funds. In the meantime, we will continue to plan and put together more free programs.
Contact us, e-mail us, join us in the movement to reach out and help others in their search for success. No dream is too small. See you soon!
