NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
Hi EnrichHER Community,

On Monday, I made the mistake of not checking the weather. Since it was so warm last week, I naturally assumed that it was going to be warm in DC this week. So, I woke up at 3:30 am to pack my suitcase full of my usual wardrobe of dresses and headed off to catch my flight to D.C. Once I landed, I was surprised to walk outside to a 53-degree rainy day. At that point, I was just grateful that I never fly without an umbrella or a scarf in my bag. This quick shift, is just how life can sometimes be. You sometimes don't intentionally prepare, but how we structure our lives can save us from dealing with certain realities. I believe entrepreneurship is not only an exercise in stamina but also an exercise in learning the right moves and actions that are required to ensure we're protected through the ups and downs.

EnrichHER FEATURED STORY
HELEN MANICH: “I Look for the Right Questions Instead of the Answers”
As a young Jewish girl raised in the south side of Chicago by Croatian and Slovak parents, Helen Manich grew up knowing that she had the tenacity to dream and accomplish extraordinary goals. She leaned into her constant curiosity to ask questions and was pushed by her family to be successful in school and beyond.

While growing up in Chicago during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960’s, Helen benefited from a robust community of diverse families that held strong to their homeland traditions. When visiting friend’s homes during childhood, it was the norm to greet parents in their native language and indulge in the native cuisine of their country. Helen enjoyed a childhood full of learning and engaging her natural curiosity into other people’s way of life. To this day, the understanding of people’s similarities and differences at a young age has been one of the most incredible gifts of her lifetime.
