As a budding yogipreneur and nutrition coach in Washington, DC, I’m always looking for ways to grow my business. Growth is hard especially when your passion project is not your full-time job. Whenever I come across an online platform that can act as my megaphone in a reliable and fuss-free way, I jump on it. Enter Thumbtack.com. It’s kind of like Yelp meets the Yellow Pages and it’s super user-friendly. Their mission is simple:
Ever wonder why you can buy any product online with a single click, but you can’t hire a photographer, tutor, contractor, or other local service professional without a dozen phone calls? So did we. Thumbtack’s mission is to make it dramatically easier to hire services, at the same time empowering independent professionals to grow their businesses.
So I jumped on the bandwagon and we’ll see how it goes. With that, I’ll wrap up this little shameless plug for MOARfit. And hey, while you’re there why not look into that local photographer, web designer or personal chef you’ve been hoping to hire?!
