The power of community
The background goes like this...
For years people have told me I should get the GoGirls logo tattooed. I've thought about it but couldn't figure out where to put it. One day, Feb. 2006, on the way to Austin for Folk Alliance it hit me. I was staring down at my ankle and knew that was the spot. And for those who know me well, once I get an idea in my head it's over and done. ;-)
We had a jam packed weekend during Folk Alliance that year but I made sure we were able to find a tattoo shop down on 6th Street in Austin and turns out there was one literally next door to the venue where we were hosting a showcase featuring Melissa Ferrick. So between introducing acts on the bill I was getting the GoGirls logo tattoo. Then three of our members with me that night decided to do it too. Wow, that was dedication and something so unexpected. I told them all the LEAST I could do is give them a complimentary lifetime membership to GoGirls Elite. So by getting the tattoo they saved $35/year. Not a bad deal all around. I get FREE lifetime promotion on their bodies and they sport a cool tat and pay no membership dues.
So here we are over two years later and we're up to 25 members with a GoGirls tattoo. I'm so completely WOW'd by this. What a gesture that people feel so connected with our community!
So there you have it. A great example of the power of community!
