I am thrilled to introduce you to Ginger Moore, IBN's Local Director in Chattanooga, TN. Ginger is CEO of Neos Creations, and has been a member of IBN since March 2011. She makes bath, body, skin care and home care products, many of which are made to order. Ginger's husband is a woodworker — I'm working on a post now to tell you about the lovely booth he made for Ginger's shows.
So far, I've introduced you to the new IBN Directors in Gatlinburg, Louisville, State College, Cincinnati, New York City, Louisville, Baltimore, Los Angeles and also in Northern New Jersey, Portland, Or, and Boston. I am so pleased to add Ginger to the INDIE Team. I asked Ginger to share a few words about what she hopes to experience as IBN's Chattanooga Director. Here's what she said:
I am honored and extremely excited to have the opportunity to serve as the Local Director in the Chattanooga area. Everyone at IBN has been so helpful, supportive and giving from day one. I've gained and grown so much in the time I've been a member, and this is a way for me to give back just a fraction of what I've received. dM is a wonderful leader. She's a great example of all that is right in business. Her high energy, encouraging nature and deep insight is contagious! There is such a sense of solidarity and family togetherness among IBN members. I just love that!
IBN's Local Groups will strengthen and help everyone progress, learn and grow so they can do even greater things. Working together makes the entrepreneurial journey so much easier and enjoyable. IBN's Local Groups make it easier for us to connect, band together, expand, learn and educate in our own part of the world. The possibilities are endless!
Consumer interest in high quality artisan and handmade products grows daily, and I'm excited to be a part of it. I'm convinced we are on the verge of a huge wave to come. I hope everyone in my area will come along and ride the wave with us.
If you're in the Chattanooga area, join Ginger and other like-minded local small and independent business owners in the Chattanooga Group at INDIE Social! Ginger tells me that Chattanooga is a short drive from Northwest Georgia, Northeast Alabama and parts of Tennessee, so if you're in any of those areas, feel free to join the Chattanooga group to remain abreast of what's happening with your southern neighbors close by.
You can also connect in these cities:
Charlotte (guess who's the director there??!)
Newark and Northern New Jersey
New York City
State College, PA
More are on the way!
I will announce additional Local Directors as they are added in the coming days. For now, join me in welcoming Ginger by leaving a comment below. You can also connect with Ginger on Twitter here, and on FaceBook.
