Events

Since its inception in June of 2004, a primary mission of the Young Professionals of Fond du Lac is to sponsor monthly events that allow its members opportunities to network in both social and professional settings. Members can then have an opportunity to invite guests and learn more about the mission and goals of YPF.

GET INVOLVED!

Attending YPF events is a great way to find out what YPF is all about. You will meet monthly with collegues and friends while continuing to expand and diversify your network. Come see what the excitement is all about!

YPWeek 2018: The Art of the Side Hustle @ Green Dragon Brew Pub

Tammy Duchow, entrepreneur and brand guru, will share her story of how she took a simple idea and turned it into a fully-fledged “Side Hustle” to create Critter Cuddler, rocketing to $125K in sales and now an As Seen on TV product endorsed by the original shark tank personality Kevin Harrington. All while working with Edgewell Brands (i.e. Shick, Diaper Genie, Hawaiian Tropic brands, etc.).

Attendees of this event can also find free resources for growing their own ideas, courtesy of Ignite! Business Success of Fond du Lac County.

About Tammy Duchow:

Having started in front of the camera as a model for multi-million-dollar brands like Guess?™, Ralph Lauren™ and Calvin Klein™, Tammy had the opportunity to work with some of the best brand teams and ad agencies around the world. She continued her brand-building journey as the eCommerce Director for multi-billion-dollar Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and became a successful professional trainer. After that she established and managed social media customer care for Fortune 500 Company, Johnson & Johnson, and worked alongside 25 household name brands like Neutrogena®, JOHNSON’s® Baby, Aveeno®, etc. From gathering, managing, and analyzing engaging consumer feedback data into better product development and the overall brand story, she brings deep insight into the vastly important role that customer loyalty plays in brand building.

From her role building big brands for 20+ years, Tammy applied her online skills to bring a company’s mediocre sales of $300,000 per month to over $3 million per month in less than a year, and in 2016 launched an Amazon course and software package to replicate this process which grossed over $1 million in sales. Currently, she’s launching her own private label brands of products she’s passionate about, and teaching other people how to do the same.

Knowing your own strengths and gaps is the first step to completing the puzzle.
