That’s it. The end. It’s over!
But wait, don’t panic! I will be re-launching The Millennials Mentor at TAMARATHORPE.COM and offering all of my professional services here.
You see, in 2007, I started TNT Intercultural and Leadership Development (aka TNT Development) hoping to enjoy the freedom of self-employment and to engage in meaningful work around culture and leadership. I have to admit, being self-employed has come with its ups and downs, but mostly ups! And I have also been fortunate enough to work with some amazing people and organizations making positive changes.
Work that has been especially meaningful to me has included providing cultural adjustment trainings to immigrant and refugees, making their life in a new country just a bit easier. Particularly energizing, has been the assistance I’ve given to help teams and organizations learn to work more effectively across differences.
So what is going to change? The change isn’t so much the “what”, but the “who”.
The Millennial Mentor targets young professionals and the organizations they work in or run, equipping them with leadership tools for life.
For years, I’ve been able to collaborate with and mentor students and young professionals from all over the world through my volunteer work. In 2012, I realized that I did not want to limit my engagement with Millennials, and wanted to serve them through my professional work as well.
Let’s face it, I just can’t get enough of young people. And I mean that in the most sincere way, not a creepy way.
So when re-envisioning my business, I was 100% certain that I wanted to use my expertise and experience to make a difference in the lives of all the young people I know and don’t know.
The challenge was to find the best way to share what I know with as many of you as possible. And so in December 2012, I launched TAMARATHORPE.COM and became the Millennials Mentor. Since then, I have learned so much about you and me, and how to create a space and place that is valuable for you and where you are in your life right now. So this past August, I made the decision to fully commit my work to Millennials and let go of TNT Development all together.
Now I got plenty of advice from friends, colleagues, and even my marketing coach and business consultant to consider specializing in generational differences. This would mean working with organizations and institutions to explain the characteristics of Millennials, why you are the way you are, and then teach them how to lead and work with you more effectively.
I said NO! Why? Because…I don’t want to talk ABOUT Millennials, I want to talk TO Millennials!
So what am I going to talk about?
Building a better you from the ground up! I want to help you realize your untapped potential to be the best version of yourself and effectively lead in the organizations where you work or that you run.
In 2014, TAMARATHORPE.COM will be offering new and better leadership development programs designed to make a difference in your life and career.
I will be offering more content than even before…tips, advice, guides, resources, videos and more.
And I will continue to offer 1:1 coaching, organizational development consulting (team building, change management, communication, conflict resolution, etc), and speaking for events and conferences.
A huge thanks to all of you who have supported me and my work. Your contributions have guided me to this place and time. I’m excited about the future and looking forward to seeing more of you at the new and improved TAMARATHORPE.COM next month!
