About Ed gallery products directions



If you haven't already, please meet Ed Masucci. Ed is a GSDBA VIP member. You have probably seen him at almost every GSDBA event in the last few years. Ed made a major change three years ago; he pulled up stakes and moved himself and his business to San Diego from Palm Springs.

"...the benefits you receive by being a member directly correlates to the amount of involvement you put into your GSDBA membership…"




He knew that he would have to quickly establish himself in order to get his hair styling business up and running. Knowing that joining the local LGBT chamber of commerce was a must, Ed became a GSDBA member shortly after arriving in San Diego. Subscribing to GSDBA's mantra, the benefits you receive by being a member directly correlates to the amount of involvement you put into your GSDBA membership, Ed became a very active member. He joined a weekly, Business Networking Group (BNG), attended monthly networking mixers and most importantly, began an advertising presence in both the GSDBA Directory and Community Connection Magazine. As a result of all of these efforts, Ed increased his client base from zero to ninety. Ed says he has already gotten calls from his ad in the 2013 GSDBA Directory!

Ed likes to also attribute a noticeable increase in his business to Stacey McKibbon of ActionCOACH San Diego. Stacey spoke at the GSDBA Professional Luncheon on November 8, 2011 and presented a shortened version of ActionCOACH's 5 steps to increase business. Ed took copious notes at this presentation and after applying the 5 steps, he saw a measurable difference in his own bottom-line.

Ed would be the first person to credit much of his success in San Diego to being an active GSDBA member. He felt the need to repay GSDBA for helping him grow his business by becoming a VIP member. VIP membership gives Ed a certain sense of pride in knowing that he is contributing to San Diego's thriving LGBT business community.

So the next time you are at a GSDBA mixer, walk up and introduce yourself to Ed; he is definitely a person you need to know. Some call him "Hairstylist to the Stars" since he has worked with a lot of big names in the entertainment industry. Ed is always happy to dish a little about a certain gay icon, whose name you are sure to recognize. Just ask him when next you see Ed at a mixer or Professional Luncheon.
