December 2021 Networking Lunch

December 14, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm CST

$35.00 – $40.00

This month finds us more casual and more festive.  Celebrating the holidays and the end of the year with good food and good friends. Connecting through networking, education, and giving back.

Bring new or gently-worn ladies shoes for donation to Successful Shoes and meet founder, Dr. Porscha Jackson ’14.
Dr. Jackson started Successful Shoes
with the thought of helping her friends to give back in a way that was aligned with their lifestyle.  The idea combined her passion for shoes and dedication to service and has blossomed over the years to help so many women.  The premise of Successful Shoes is to give women-in-transition the opportunity to literally walk in the shoes of success, to motivate them to achieve personal success.  Successful Shoes provides shoe donations from successful women, career development services, and encouragement.  Successful Shoes accepts gently-worn and new shoes from women all over the United States and provides these shoes to women in missions and homes throughout the Houston metropolitan area.  See below for more information and a Note From Porscha.

We will also have an Aggie ornament exchange!  Find yourself an appropriate ornament (try to stay within a $10-$15 budget) and bring along that maroon beauty to take part in the fun and surprises.  No wrapping necessary!

Our events are OPEN TO ALL – men and women, Aggies and Non-Aggies – anyone needing a little boost.

Second Tuesday of every month – networking starts at 11:30 a.m., lunch from 11:50 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Join us for good food, good conversation, and an interesting speaker – sometimes an Aggie, sometimes not, but always interesting.

Afraid you won’t know anyone there?  Bring a friend!

Can’t find a friend to bring?  Don’t worry!  In a room full of friendly Aggies, you’re bound to find a conversation to join.  And with our wide range of Class Years, you’ll probably find someone with a Class Ring just like yours.

Successful Shoes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization designed to restore the feeling of confidence, power, and authority in women-in-transition to strive for success.  The donation of shoes goes a long way to the population they serve as well as shoe stories (they love to get those and read them to the women, it’s inspirational).  Successful Shoes partners with transitional homes to make the donation along with a program that fits the needs of the ladies that are currently in the transitional home.  The programs can range from support circles to career services.  Though Successful Shoes works directly with identified local shelters, women with proven need can benefit from the provided services based upon requests and referrals. For more information, go to SuccessfulShoes.org.

If the shoe fits, buy it in every color 
was a quote on a wall plaque given to me by a friend over 10 years ago, who said she immediately thought of me, when she saw it.  After all these years, it still hangs on the wall in my office.  As an adult, so many times you wonder what your loved ones really think of you and if what you are doing in life is leaving the impression or reflecting the image you want.  When I received that plaque, I knew that other people recognized my love of shoes so much that when they saw a pair of nice shoes, I immediately came to mind.
I have often heard you should do what you love.  I love shoes and enjoy helping people; thus, I created Successful Shoes.  Shoes play such an integral role in women’s lives.  Their demeanor changes when they have on certain shoes.  It’s the confidence a woman possesses when she’s wearing those special shoes that is immeasurable.  If she can have that confidence all the time, then I believe she could achieve the success she dreams of in life.  It is with the same passion that I founded Successful Shoes, in hopes that shoes can help someone else achieve their dreams.
Shoes tell a story and express a feeling.  I remember playing in my grandmother’s shoes when I was younger, and how confident and beautiful I felt wearing her shoes.  Her shoes were high-heeled yet elegant and classy and when I put them on, I took on their persona.  I would then go through her closet and put on her jewelry, hats, and scarves to complete my elegance.  I would show my grandma my outfit and when she told me how pretty I looked, I felt like I accomplished something.  You couldn’t tell me anything because I knew I was gorgeous and successful, just like her.  It is the same feeling I had stepping into the shoes of my grandmother, that I want for women-in-transition to have when they step into the shoes for success.
Successful Shoes is an organization that strives to instill confidence in women and provide support.  We provide support by offering encouragement and career development advice.  No matter your background, experiences, failures, or inequalities, you can still be self-fulfilled and achieve your desired success!
It is my goal that women feel what I felt each time I had to step into new shoes in life to complete a task…that I was beautiful, confident, and ready to accomplish the goal ahead of me.
