Interview with Laura Rose

Written by on June 21, 2010 in Interviews

1. What led you to start the DFW Metaphysical Chamber of Commerce?
Our vision in forming this Chamber of Commerce is to create a collaborative organization for the metaphysical community in order to develop and grow our community’s local businesses. It is also our desire to be an advocate for the community to shed light and positive meaning to these unique offerings that beautifully support mind, body and spiritual health, thus dispelling any preconceived notions that we are spooky and strange. We feel it’s time to come together as a community and be in a space of “coopetition”, meaning we all have unique offerings and there is room for everyone. Time to step out of being competitive and into collaboration. The Chamber is also currently forming a “Love the People and Planet” page which will advertise opportunities for our members to donate to charities as well as promote “green” living.

2. Who is involved in this with you?
Michelle Barr, Kim StAndre and I are the founders of the Chamber. We all had the same vision of forming an organization like this, so the inspired thought came and the inspired action followed. We spent many collaborative hours designing this model and reached out to several metaphysical practitioners for support as Board members. Each Board member brings a special area of talent and expertise to strengthen this endeavor. More information is listed about the Board Members on the About Us page on our website.

3. What is its goal?
The goal is to strengthen the metaphysical business community by helping to provide the tools for success as well bring a new level of awareness and credibility both within and outside this sector.

4. What are the benefits to members?
There are many benefits to being a member of the Chamber such as a directory listing for their business, opportunities to promote their business via networking events. Special events featuring guest speakers to provide timely information to develop and grow their business. The Chamber also has a benefits package, which includes limited medical, dental, vision, short term disability, hospital indemnity and life insurance, so small businesses and sole proprietors will have access to benefits at an affordable rate.
