Katie Nguyen and her fiance, Thomas, have been members of IBN since June 2007. They purchased their business, The Conservatorie, from a prior owner. The Conservatorie, headquartered in Aguora Hills, California, formulates bulk mineral makeup and wholesales it to spas and other companies that sell it directly to consumers. She and Thomas said that they joined IBN in part because they love Indie Business Radio: "Even though the show is free," they said, "We joined IBN because we are, well, greedy! We thought to ourselves, if the free radio show is this informative, just imagine how great other materials and services are!" Enjoy Katie's Indie Candy feature here.
Funlayo Alabi is a wife and mother of two who hails from Nigeria. She and her husband own Shea Radiance, a supplier of finished products and bulk natural shea butter which they import directly from Africa. They have been IBN members since June 2006. Funlayo and her husband are working on their exit plan from traditional jobs to running Shea Radiance full-time. Their hard work and tenacity are paying off, as you can see from the beautifully packaged shea butter creams and other products at their website. Enjoy Funlayo's Indie Candy feature here. You can follow her Tweets at @shearadiance.
Princetta Jones owns Princetta's Beauty Secrets in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition, she is a musical performer who travels the world entertaining audiences with her spicy sounds. Check out her Myspace page and enjoy her Indie Candy feature here. Princetta joined IBN in March of this year. Her schedule keeps her so busy that she is not accepting online orders at this time, but if you're in Las Vegas, you can get her goodies at selected Whole Foods Markets there and in Philadelphia at Spa Bavu.
Ellen Lange is a wife, mother and the owner of Ellen Lange Medi-Spa in Highland Park, New Jersey. Ellen also a Retexturizing Peel Kit and a Clear Complexion Kit. Ellen's father is a renowned plastic surgeon, so it's no surprise that she has a wide ranging interest in facial and skin care that includes plastic surgery options. She blogs about her ideas at her recently launched blog. She enjoys helping women look and feel their best. Ellen has been a member of IBN since December 2006.
