Our tenth feature to promote businesses of DEC Connection members is about Linda Ginac of Austin TX.  Linda is a dynamic and insightful entrepreneur, as her bio below will testify; the term "go-getter" doesn't even BEGIN to describe her!  And she is equally dedicated to giving back to several charitable causes as she is to managing and inspiring her own businesses.

Last year, Linda volunteered as one of our first Member-Helping-Member concall experts, sharing her expertise and, in fact, innovative thinking about career management.  Members can access her presentation and audio recording on the website (email webmaster for the link).

Linda is also ready to start up a Texas DEC Connection Chapter - please get in touch with her if you are interested in a reunion or in organizing something for ex-DECcies in your area.
