In 1980,When I first got seriously interested in 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.

Then 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 until 1990. 

People 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.

With 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 the better.
