TackMasters!

Best Answer

As many of you know, we launched an exciting new project earlier this year, called TackMaster. The TackMaster program is part of our larger efforts to connect our pros to each other, and to Thumbtack, to help them build thriving businesses, together.

Our TackMasters are our ambassadors on the ground - hosting meet-ups in their hometowns, supporting other Thumbtack pros, building networks, creating collaborations, forging lasting friendships, hearing your voices, and bringing those voices to Thumbtack.

TackMasters are business owners, just like each of you. They wear all the hats. They hustle. They work hard. And they go above and beyond to make their communities stronger and better. This project truly is one of the most rewarding things I have ever been a part of. I think of this quote:

“We don’t accomplish anything in this world alone. And whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one’s life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.”

So many beautiful threads have been woven into my tapestry by Thumbtack pros and by their incredible stories. Here are just some of the amazing people we’ve met this year at TackMaster meet-ups.

We’re excited to be adding a TackMaster board to our online community. This is a place for our TackMasters to bounce ideas off of one another, support each other, and be inspired. It is also a place where you can reach out to the TackMaster in your area - if you’d like to attend a meet-up, have ideas for events, or need advice on local resources.

If you don’t see a TackMaster in your area, and are interested in joining, you can read a little more about what it means to be a TackMaster here and fill out an application here.

Hi @PhoenixPhotog We have been in planning mode to scale it out to even more cities this year! We have a TackMaster in your area, if you'd like to get in touch - you can DM him @patrykkg to see if he is planning anything in your area.

Thanks!

Well....Since there's been no information as to WHAT the TackMasters is about, and what the purpose is, it's seems wastefull to 'reach out' when there's nothing to 'reach out' about.

 

So, if there wasn't a well developed plan to begin with, why even start it until there was?

@PhoenixPhotog This article, linked at the top of the post. One of the purposes of this program, aside from bringing pros together, is to help bring the voices of their local communities to the Thumbtack table. There is no obligation for you to participate, but if you'd like to attend a meetup in your area, feel free to reach out to your local TackMaster. Thank you.
