I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
Wendy S. Bennett wasn’t even of legal age when she discovered she had to somehow, someway figure out this thing called life.
Given the dreaded circumstances that surfaced at the time, she seemed very much up for the monumental challenge.
“I realized at a young age, I would have to achieve it on my own,” Bennett, during an with Making Headline News interview this week, said, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly propelled her for her business venture. “That drove me to leave home when I was 16 years old, fresh out of high school.
“I started working that very summer after leaving high school,” Bennett continued. “I realized as shy as I was, people liked me, and I was good at interacting with folks. I had great customer service skills, was good at organizing and managing people and projects, so I found jobs easily.”
It is due in large part to Bennett’s resourceful work ethic that has given way to her having blossomed mightily into a successful entrepreneur, a stint that spans a little more than a decade-and-a-half.

A native of Kingston, Jamaica, Bennett, 40, is a Savannah, Georgia-based real estate investor as the Vice-President CFO and Acquisition Manager of Total Wealth Development Real Estate Investment LLC and the CFO of B Net Management Incorporated.
Companies she runs alongside her husband, real estate guru T. James Bennett, Wendy Bennett’s boasts a professional real estate investor portfolio that is comprised of more than 200 units, which includes apartment complexes, and single-family homes. The Bennetts also own commercial properties, which includes a restaurant and daycare.
“I love the freedom it gives me,” Wendy Bennett said of the enjoyment that comes with entrepreneurship. “I love the security and peace of mind. I love the fact that I am able to afford stuff I could never afford before in life and do things for my kids that my parents could not.”
Most importantly, given her mostly challenging and turbulent upbringing, Wendy Bennett doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s especially grateful of the fact that she was destined to break generational curses, many of which centered on being raised in a poverty-stricken environment.
“(That was very) important for me, building wealth for my family,” Bennett said. “I love making the community better…you know, being able to give back to others.”
Interestingly, Bennett is steadily positioning herself to acquire the essential knowledge and skills needed to enhance her business-related mechanics in her selected industry.
A graduate of Jamaica’s St. Hugh’s High School, Bennett is currently enrolled at St. Leo University in Florida, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Business Management.
A credible venture that caters to individuals ranging in ages 18-and-above, Bennett’s companies have become fixtures for leasing properties to first-time renters and home buyers, as well as teaching real estate investing courses to people in these same age brackets.
“The venture has not taken me across the nation as yet,” said Bennett, who own properties in the greater Savannah area, as well as in the outskirts that include Tybee Island and Hinesville. “However, the idea is to (expand) it to Atlanta and other states, to duplicate what I have done in Savannah.”
Referring to her husband as her “partner in crime,” Bennett credits T. James Bennett as her top supporter who has helped empower her to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams and ambitions.
“He is a true hustler and I am as well, and we both have a go get it attitude,” Wendy Bennett said. “Oprah Winfrey was also one of my inspirations. She literally pulled herself up by her bootstraps after being told ‘no’ so many times and told what she could and could not do. And, last but not least is Barbara Corcoran. She is also a huge influence. She is a Female Real Estate Powerhouse that I can only dream of emulating. She started off so modestly as a waitress and even taught school for a short while, all while being dyslexic, (yet) she still pressed on and is now a mogul in every right.”
Like Corcoran and Co., Wendy Bennett seems well on her way to achieving major success, this after having to somehow, someway figure out this thing called life — well before her time.
“I’ve accomplished a lot, coming from such humble beginnings,” Wendy Bennett said. “It has only been by the grace of God and my willingness to take risks, persevere and not give up, even through some of the most trying times, times that would have shook most folks to their core and left totally defeated them.
“I am the type of person, I don’t want to hear how great the fight was or how good the event was or how awesome a particular place was. I want to experience it myself, so I’m going to go do it.”
Now we know why.
