Monday Morning Radio (wizard academy)

This is Dean Rotbart, host of Monday Morning Radio and a proud supporter of Chapel Dulcinea at Wizard Academy.

On a recent podcast, we explored the tale of Chapel Dulcinea, the world’s first and most popular free wedding chapel. Launched in 2005 by Wizard Academy co-founders Pennie and Roy H. Williams, the magical venue now plays hosts to more than 1,000 new unions each and every year.  That’s 1,000 couples, many of them with not a dime to their name, who can secure a gorgeous wedding chapel for not a penny.

My wife Talya and I, who were married in 1984 in the chambers of a criminal court judge in Dallas, have pledged our support to keep Chapel Dulcinea solvent for years to come.  You can become a Dulcinea Darling for as little as $5 a month – a bargain price to be part of a newlywed couple’s lives forever.

Sometimes the best business stories are UnBusiness stories.

The tale of Chapel Dulcinea is one of those, the world’s first and most popular free wedding chapel – launched in 2005 by Wizard Academy co-founders Pennie and Roy H. William – and playing host to more than 1,000 new unions each and every year.

Pennie and Roy, who were married with hardly a dime to their name in 1976, envisioned Chapel Dulcinea as a sanctuary to help cash-strapped couples take their vows and first steps forward as a married couple.

This week, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart joins Pennie and Roy on a special edition of Monday Morning Radio, to share the wonder and magic of a dream wedding chapel come true. What’s your UnBusiness dream?
