The Waxahachie Chamber continues its weekly LIVE Interview Series with county and city leaders to discuss the current state being for Ellis County.

Last week’s interview featured Superintendent Dr. Bonny Cain and public relations director Jenny Bridges with Waxahachie ISD.

Each interview in this series includes an exclusive deep discussion of the year, the challenges, the wins, and a look ahead – featuring a county or city person in leadership.

The purpose of this series is to keep the Ellis County community and business leaders aware of everything developing locally during these times of change.

Tune in LIVE at 4 p.m. Thursdays for the next several weeks to catch this exclusive interview series on the Waxahachie Chamber Facebook page!

The Waxahachie Chamber would like to welcome its new President’s Council member – Methodist Midlothian Medical Center – into its ranks.

This week also, the chamber will be celebrating the opening of Vogue Salon & Spa Downtown Waxahachie with a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m. Sept. 17.

The Waxahachie Chamber continues to be a leader of the city, ensuring the best interests of business owners are preserved in Ellis County as a whole.

Jon Bell, owner and founder of Character-Talk, speaks of his experience as a Waxahachie Chamber member:

When did you start your business in Ellis County?

“Character-Talk officially launched December of 2019.”

Why did you choose to open your business in Ellis County?

“Ellis County is the place my family and I have chosen to plant our roots and raise our family. There are many benefits of living in Ellis County, Texas. One of our favorites has been the people that live here. Southern hospitality has been evident since we got here from the Northwest.”

What is your favorite part about what you do?

“I get to help people every day. I get to help them personally, relationally and professionally. Our profile does what no other profile on the market does. It is descriptive and prescriptive. Our training equips you to be a better communicator in every area.”

What do you love most about the Waxahachie Chamber?

“I love the support and networking the chamber provides. They do their work with love and it is evident, plus they have had a Character-Talk workshop.”
