Tassie Blackstone shares what she couldn’t live without and what she loves most about #LifeatNEOS

As the growth and transformation lead at NEOS, tell me a little bit about what you do for NEOS and our clients.

My role at NEOS is a blend of:

• Industry Insights – what’s happening, trending, anticipated next moves, etc.

• Agent/Advisor Experience

• What drives consumer behavior and buying patterns for the insurance industry

I help clients with the exploration of the insurtech landscape, underwriting trends, CRM discovery, and specialized programs designed to exceed their organizational goals.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

‘If nothing changes, nothing changes.’
Whether you are thinking about a job promotion, new job or training for a race, no amount of wishful thinking is going to make your dream a reality. If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting!

Which technology innovation has made the most impact on your life?

Without a doubt, the iPhone! I love all the silly pics of my nephew that I receive from my sister and the ability to connect with my mother on FaceTime to ‘see’ how she is doing when I can’t physically be there.

What is one thing you couldn’t live without?

I couldn’t live without having a dog – my current dog has quite the personality and even though I wouldn’t mind a lazy Sunday every so often, she pushes me to get outside and enjoy some fresh air. Plus my dog is my built-in Starbucks buddy – she is a fan of ‘pup cups’.

Who inspires you and why?

In our world of constant comparison, I find the aspect of ‘community’ incredibly inspiring and as a recent Peloton devotee, the community is at the forefront of what they foster. The community of riders is uplifting, supportive, and also challenges you to show up each and every day. I
firmly believe that taking care of yourself, allows you to be your best self to help take care of others.

What is your favorite thing about #LifeatNEOS?

Hands down, the PEOPLE!
