1980,When I first got seriously interested
starting an herb business in Dayton, Ohio, there was nowhere to
turn for help. There was no internet so you had to really scrounge
for sources and addresses. I finally found Bu$iness of Herbs and at
last I was able to find people like me. :-)
And I was off. I finally found my passion and I've never
looked back. Granted there were times that I felt that for every step I
took forward I went half a step back. However, I was so mesmerized
by the plants and what they offered, I kept plugging along.
there was talk of starting an herbal trade association in 1985, I went
to that first organizational meeting and volunteered to help. After the
trials of starting, the International Herb Growers and Marketers
Association was formed and I was their Executive Director
and organizations change, so in 1990 I started The Herb Growing and
Marketing Network and IHGMA morphed into the International Herb
Association. I still had my goal of helping people that wanted to
make their living with herbs. I found that working without a Board
of Directors was both a challenge and a blessing. There was no one to
blame but me for stupid actions. But there was no one to hold me back
when I wanted to try some pretty impressive things.
changes in the economy and life in general, herb folks are having a
really hard time. The rulings of the FDA became a reality for herbal
businesses and many have closed their doors. While the Internet and
Social Media have opened so many new ways to interact, due to the
lack of expertise many small businesses think they are only able to give
a cursory try at things that could change the way they do business for
