From its beginnings in March of 1995, Great Deals Magazine has been the area voice for direct mail and later, online marketing opportunities for small businesses as well as the friend of the thrifty shopper. To be precise, Deals has expanded into 33 markets, over 60 cities and in nearly one million homes. In addition, Deals includes a printing and publishing business all from its Muncie beginnings into its current headquarters in Pendleton, Indiana.

Marketing Consultant, Carlene Westerfield-Gunter, an Anderson native, works with area businesses to drive sales and services through a variety of discount offerings and through a variety of media including newspaper distribution channels and electronic delivery. “My career in Advertising for 29 years has allowed to assist businesses and experience growth which gives me great satisfaction.”

Why here in Madison County? “As the daughter of local Chiropractor and Businessman, Dr. Carlton Carey, my roots are firmly in Madison County and my hometown of Anderson and I’m very proud of that.”

What are your goals for 2015? “To be more involved in the community.”

Who do you consider the most courageous person in history and why? “Eleanor Roosevelt. She was iconic in so many different areas: politician, diplomat and activist. She was an inspiration to all women not only in her generation but for generations to come that they can make a difference”

If you were to take that person on a tour of your business, what one thing would you want them to see? “That our owner, Jim Mougette started this business in his living room in Muncie, Indiana and grew it to its size today; one person with a vision. I think she could relate very easily to that.”

What was the defining moment when you knew your business was making a difference? “When we started getting testimonials from businesses that our magazine was helping them to grow and in turn effecting the local economy in such a positive way.”
