I'm happy to announce today’s launch of TAZZU Business Networking Community.

TAZZU Business Networking Community

Today was indeed a big day, and yet very possibly only the beginning of better things to come.

TAZZU a pet project of JenTekk Web Solutions was originally founded back in 2006. In 2010 an unfortunate turn of events took TAZZU offline and left the Members looking for alternative ways to network.

Today, with many loyal Members waiting on the wings, the Community appears to be positioned to make a long awaited come back.

JenTekk is pleased to announce the launch of the Kids Summer Reading Club 2012 website themed "Strange... But True?" We've now had the pleasure of creating the Kids SRC website for 7 years in a row and couldn't be more pleased.

Kids SRC 2012 website

The Kids SRC is designed to get children reading, with the use of a fun theme, posters, stickers, a reading record, bookmarks, completion medals, and novelty items. In addition each year they have a new designed website which offers 7 quizzes (1 for each week of the program) word puzzles, and fun games.

This year's artist is Mike Deas. Mike is an author/illustrator of graphic novels. His love for illustrative storytelling comes from an early love of reading and drawing while growing up on Saltspring Island.

Thank you!

Once again, a great big thank to the very cool people at BC Library Association for this fun & rewarding opportunity.

The 2012 Summer Reading Club is sponsored by the British Columbia Library Association and your local public library with the assistance of the Public Library Services Branch, Ministry of Education, The Honourable George Abbott, Minister.

Many suns have risen and set since the inception of TAZZU back in 2006.

TAZZU Business Networking Community

ACT I: Humble Beginnings

Being a business owner myself I empathized with other entrepreneurs wishing to run a successful business, and trying to generate leads for employment opportunities.

In 2004 I discovered the power of networking.

Attending networking breakfasts, and engaging in online communities and participating in events opened up a new world of opportunity and resource. One where I could contribute to, and receive from other business owners.

It was this awakening in 2006 that led me to create the TAZZU Networking Forums. With the forum built, 21 invitations sent, and the support of 4 amazing moderators, a safe environment was created for the members to network, exchange ideas, and ultimately make connections that could grow their businesses. It wasn't long before we had a thriving & vibrant networking community!

Look at what arrived in the mailbox today! A copy of the book "Express Yourself!" a compilation of the top 30 winning stories from last year's B.C. Kids Writing Contest.

Express Yourself! The BC Kids Wrting Contest

In short: last June JenTekk received an email from the Ministry of Education inquiring about creating a website for an online kids writing contest they were sponsoring. The contest was to be a part of a province-wide celebration: the BC Libraries 100th Anniversary!

I jumped at the opportunity. Having designed BC Library Association's Kids Summer Reading Club websites since 2006 – and enjoying it full tilt – I couldn't resist.

As a token of their appreciation, the Ministry of Education they sent me this copy of the commemorative book.

Thank you to BCLA, Ministry of Education and Province of BC for this delightful token of your appreciation, and for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful celebration.
