EARLY CAREER - FLORIDA - 2001 to 2004
I have had the privileged of watching Tara Shiffer / Jacobsen acquire the knowledge for her current career with the same enthusiasm in which she hones her speaking skills. Her first speaking engagements were the grounds for her understanding some basic principles. She is never a person to waste your time; she understands the gift she's been given of your attention and returns it in kind. This is ultimately the true test of a great teacher; and, above all, this is what she is.Caryl Marie Kirk · Captain Kirk Stamps
I've had the pleasure of hearing Tara speak many times throughout Tampa Bay.
Tara's presentations are always jam-packed with great 'take-away' information. She's brilliant in that she'll take a topic that I've heard presented many times before but she's always brings a fresh perspective or solution to the table. Best yet, she's a very engaging, relaxed, down-to-earth presenter with a splash of humor. An opportunity to hear her live should not be missed!Julia Fishel · Suncoast Partners at Keller Williams Palm Harbor
