With a tremendous audience of well over 20,000 between its membership and online following, the Waxahachie Chamber is one of the most influential community leaders making a difference for local business in Ellis County and beyond.  

One of the chamber’s Green Coat Ambassadors, Trudy Hankins, speaks of her experience with Confidence Shoppe:

“I started my business, Confidence Shoppe, in March of 2016. I had just finished my master’s degree in organizational leadership. I was trying to decide how I wanted to use my education. I decided to start my own business because, as a small business owner, I get to choose how to invest my time. I also chose to operate my business from my home. This gives me the chance to serve customers in a relaxed atmosphere with no pressure and, let me tell you, customers love it!!  

“One of my greatest desires is to invest in my community. I moved to Waxahachie in 2013 after an untimely family death. I LOVED living in Waxahachie but I had a difficult time getting connected. Enter…the Waxahachie Chamber of Commerce!

“Over the last two years the chamber has opened up many opportunities to connect with my community. The chamber has been an amazing resource to receive business coaching, networking opportunities and create new business relationships. I am so thankful for Sandy King and her team. They are truly one of the greatest reflections of the Heart of Waxahachie. We are truly stronger together!”
