081 – Delivering a Shock and Awe Experience with Diane Campbell of Gratitude Goodies

Diane-Campbell-HSDiane Campbell is the CEO of Gratitude Goodies, LLC.GBU-NEW-Candle-081DC

Diane has always had a passion for food and creativity. She recognized that a core value was missing in corporations across America … that was saying “thank you.” So she focused on the concept of building stronger relationships within businesses by expressing gratitude through delicious gourmet gift baskets.

What started as a homebased business, today operates out of a 1,500 square foot facility. Gratitude Goodies, LLC has been providing meaningful ways to say thank you to clients in Atlanta and across the nation for 8 years.

Diane is married to Dan and soon they will be celebrating their 28th wedding anniversary. They have three daughters, two grand kids, and a dog named Nugget. She enjoys cooking, travel, quilting, and sharing her business knowledge with other entrepreneurs.
