“WEDC MHV helped to open my eyes to the fact that I wasn’t thinking BIG enough. Sometimes our dreams become so specific that we get locked into them and don’t realize the additional avenues our businesses can take to build extreme success. I am beyond thankful to Cynthia, the WEDC team and their curriculum for their tireless dedication to pushing their students to see the true potential of their dreams.”
