I am thrilled to introduce you to Ricci Ackerman, IBN's Local Director in Atlanta, GA. Ricci is CEO of The Naturo Way, an herbal consultancy. She is an herbalist, soapmaker, aromatherapist and consultant to small businesses. As head of NaturoWay, Ricci has been a member of IBN since October 2010, but she was a member when her business was more soapmaking focused several years ago.
So far, I've introduced you to the new IBN Directors in Chattanooga, 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 Ricci to the INDIE Team. I asked Ricci to share a few words about what she hopes to experience as IBN's Atlanta Director. Here's what she said:
I am honored to have the opportunity to represent INDIE as the Atlanta Director. I have known dM for quite a few years and witnessed her impeccable work ethic. She has done an amazing job of growing her network and provides top notch advice to so many developing businesses. I am excited to connect with more small and independent business owners in the Atlanta area. There is always opportunity knocking at the door, and supporting dM and the Indie Business Network will be a rewarding endeavor. Working together, we can all support one another in growing our businesses.
If you're in the Atlanta area, join Ricci and other like-minded local small and independent business owners in the Atlanta Group at INDIE Social!
