Leadership Spotlight – GinnyPenny

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

Leaders are an essential part of any team or organization. Leaders help other members succeed and grow as well as help the Captain achieve their objectives. Here at Christmas in July we have some wonderful Leaders and we want to honor your accomplishments in what we are calling Leadership Spotlight.


Susie Lee from GinnyPenny is our next honoree.

1. What made you decide to join the CIJ team and what do you love about the team?

I joined because I knew some of the members and because my Christmas season is busy and I wanted to get some marketing ideas to spread the sales through the rest of the year. I had a lot of fun promoting this past July and have made new friends on Instagram through the team.

2. What made you decide to become a CIJ team leader and what do you enjoy most about being a team leader?

Well I was just asked to join, so I am looking forward to helping where I can and learning from the other leaders.

3. What is your style of leadership?

I think the best in people comes out when they are given creative freedom and positive direction. I am pretty laid back and always do well under leaders that are as well.

4. Tell us about yourself and your shop.

I make plush robots. They are lots of fun and I have great customers. I am also moving into making more patterns. GinnyPenny is my nickname for my daughter, and I named my shop after her. I am married and have two kids, a 3-year-old son and an 11-year-old daughter. We live in Utah. I just recently went from full-time to only working two days a week at my job so I can focus more on my Etsy store. It’s a leap of faith and will be an adventure.

5. What are your social media sites?
