In 2013, Tara is releasing a new series of talks sharing lessons learned while overcoming the unexpected death of her fiancé in October 2011. Jeffrey Hayzlett, Global Business Celebrity and best-selling author, had this to say about The Best is Yet to Come. "Tara's integrity and authenticity is so real that while I was listening to Tara talk recently you could literally hear everyone in the room breathing -- they were so enthralled with what she had to say."
Tara is also the owner and founder of Aleweb Social Marketing, a consulting company that helps personal brands build a comprehensive online platform, including strategy development, website creation, social profile implementation, and on-going support and training. (In keeping with the times, her teenage daughter created the "Aleweb" name as a mash-up between their last name and "the web.")
She is a recognized thought leader in her industry, and is known to her clients as "The Teacher of Technophobes and Trendsetters" due to the expanse of her knowledge and how accessible she makes her information.
Tara has her own blog, "The Conversations Around Us," but also guest blogs, writes for the Lead Change Group and SmartBrief, is syndicated on AllTop, Business2Community and periodically on the Leadership Synchroblog, has been featured in Carol Roth's Business Unplugged and Marketing Sherpa, and has been reprinted in SOLDLab magazine.
In addition to providing consulting services, writing and speaking, Tara serves on the Board of Directors of a non-profit ministry, is Chaplain of her local Word Weavers chapter, and is also a martial artist, a short-term missionary, and Mom to 2 teenagers (one of each).
