Niner Empire Southern Chapter Meet and Greet


Home August 2017


Ladies of the Empire had the honor and privilege to join the 3rd annual Niner Empire Southern Chapter Meet and Greet in New Orleans.  22 Chapters were represented, with over 250 attendees from 25 states (including Hawaii).

This unforgettable weekend was hosted by the Mississippi Niner Empire, the New Orleans Empire and the Rouge and Gold Empire of Baton Rouge.  The 3 day celebration included parties, pool parties, meet and greets, and a Bourbon Street Niner Takeover.

From the moment we landed, we were greeted with so muchkindness and generosity.  New Orleans is a wonderful city!   People love the NINERS everywhere and it’s the best feeling to run into an empire brother or sister in a foreign city and feel the love immediately.  We connected with so many amazing people who instantly became our family.  This is an event that I look forward to every year and already have my calendar marked for next year’s event in Tampa.  We hope to see you there!

Member Spotlight: Meet Lisa Ramirez

After struggling with personal issues in June 2014, Lisa Ramirez, decided it was time to start looking forward and began searching for her next project.  The only requirement was that it needed to be fun.

What could be more fun than selling jewelry?   She found Chloe + Isabel, a jewelry merchandising company who is “dedicated to empowering women by combining our unique opportunity with cutting-edge tools + training”.  Finding a company that was aligned with Lisa’s values and offered stunning, great quality products was a blessing.  Within 6 months, she earned a coveted feature in the company’s catalog and hasn’t looked back since.  Her URL is

As with anything, there are challenges.  Her biggest challenges are time-management and finding a balance between a full-time job, her passion to sell jewelry, family, friends, community and her own needs.  She has learned the art of compromising.


Lisa makes it a point to donate to the community by donating 6 statement pieces a year to organizations like the Antioch Animal Shelter,  The Fil-American Cultural Organization, Mamas Night Out Pediatric Cancer, and LOTE.  She also hosts fundraising events where 100% of her commission is donated to a charity such as St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, and Safe Haven Animal Rescue.

When asked what lessons she’d like to share, she said “Don’t limit your potential.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Keep challenging yourself.  Oh, and learn from your (and others’) mistakes.”
