Hi @GailGutenmann, to answer your question about me - I live near our Salt Lake City office and I used to make a lot of cakes for Thumbtack. I also came into the office to speak about my experience as a pro several times a year for a few years. I was looking to shift out of making cakes full time, and get some weekends back so I could spend more time with my family. I found an opening at Thumbtack and applied - and voila!
As for pricing in specific categories - the best thing you can do as a pro is give very specific feedback on pricing, customer journey, etc --- How would you price jobs, what questions would you ask customers, etc.
We have also recently launched a program where we are enlisting our very best pros across the country to host meet-ups in their home towns, connect with other pros, support one another, and also to hear feedback and bring that feedback to Thumbtack - like a pro advisory council. We are doing everything we can to bring the pros' voices to the table to help shape the future of Thumbtack.
We are also visiting cities across the country to host events and to hear feedback directly from our pros. Keep your eyes peeled here in our online community for future meet-ups!
And of course, we have this forum in which we gather feedback every day!
If you have any more questions, feel free to DM me.

@RothsteinJewlry and @Daniel_O - This was a much smaller group and was community meet-up, rather than a big pro event. It was put on by a local pro. The invite list included only events industry pros - and it was a short list at that. BUT, we will be having many more of these smaller meet-ups, so keep your eyes peeled here in the Community, or watch for emails!
Sorry we missed you this time! Let me know how things are going and if there are any types of meet-ups you would like to see in LA!!!
