I'm interviewing Camille Leon, founder of Holistic Chamber of Commerce. LIVE, Thursday Feb 8 at 12noon. Register here. She's grown her homespun Chamber of Commerce to 52 offices in 13 states, 3 provinces, 2 countries. How did she do it? Here's what she says...
"My drive and determination earned me the nickname "Hurricane Camille." I was successful at what I did and kept myself constantly working. When I wasn’t at work, I was out doing public speaking. It slowly dawned on me that I was not healthy, physically or otherwise. I was so caught up in a high-stress environment that I didn’t even realize how stressed out I was.
"So, I found a way to health and happiness through holistic and natural products and services. Then, I found other people like me. People who had adopted a holistic lifestyle and who wanted to share what they had found with others.
"Our core cause and community here at The Holistic Chamber of Commerce is connecting people to you, as a holistic professional, practitioner, business owner or resource provider and to the products, services and solutions you provide. It is also helping you find the support you need. We are different from a "conventional" chamber of commerce because we are holistic first and commercial second. We are here to support each other and you, as well as the communities and world we live in. Together, we can collaborate to achieve our goal of healthier people on a happier planet!"
