2018 Chapter Program and Luncheon
From Passion to Profit: One Woman's Journey to Launching her Dream Business
Featuring: Erin Zwigart, CEO, Georgia Crafted
The tale of a young woman (and new mom) who had a great job, but a horrendous commute, and launched an incredible business idea one night over a glass of wine. This business not only changed her life, but so many lives around Georgia.
BIOGRAPHY: Erin Zwigart is the owner & founder of Georgia Crafted, a speciality e-commerce business that carries only Georgia-Made products. After recognizing her passion for shopping local, and noticing a need for a "one-stop shop" for locally-made products, Erin launched georgiacrafted.com in September of 2013.
- Get inspired.
- Relationships are the #1 key to any successful business.
- Recognize the importance of Authenticity to your company and brand.
Georgia Crafted started out as a “subscription box" company, but after only 3 months of being in business, Erin saw another niche - themed gift boxes filled with Georgia Made products. Eventually, Georgia Crafted turned into a full e-commerce business with several service offerings - Subscription Boxes, Themed Gift Boxes, a Build Your Own Gift Box Option (by choosing from over 140 products) and Corporate & Wedding Gift Boxes.
Georgia Crafted has been named as the “Top Business to Watch” two years in a row by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce. Erin has designed custom gift boxes for both small and large companies, including Walton Communities, Chick-fil-A, Georgia Pacific, CNN, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and more.
Erin lives in Smyrna, GA with her husband and 2 beautiful girls, ages 6 and 8.
