A Year of Growth

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for chatting with me today regarding market conditions and opportunity for Tahzoo. We are in an enviable position given our clients and the types of projects we’ve completed. Every Fortune 500 company needs a direct relationship with their customers. We are founded on the idea that personalized and contextually relevant experiences will help businesses grow and prosper. For Tahzoo, our mission is to make millions of people a little bit happier every day. We are the right company at the right time in history to make a big difference in the world.

This will be a growth year for Tahzoo. Growth will mean change and opportunity for each of you to progress in your careers. What sounds good to you? What skills or jobs would you like to have? Anyone interested in my job? I was at Nordstrom during its glory days – the company was growing rapidly; we were opening stores frequently. I decided I wanted to be part of the new store opening team, travel to new cities, hire new employees, and train them in the Nordstrom way. I opened 14 stores and learned so much, what a great experience it was for me. Foundational in career and an important step in building my career confidence.

As Tahzoo grows, what do you imagine is a good next step for you? Does your manager know your goals and are you working as a team to achieve those goals? I created Tahzoo so that each of us would have an opportunity to learn and grow. We are making significant investments in the Elevate and Accelerate program. Dori’s presentation on SMART goal setting is an important step for each of you to embrace as you plan out your career. Think about where you’d like to be in a year and then three years. Write it down and share it with your manager.

As always, I am happy to talk with you about career progression and share my experiences. I am on my third career; it’s been a great run. Many mistakes, many victories, and mostly many lessons learned. I look forward to hearing from you as you consider your next steps.

Let’s go be great!
