A career copilot for everyone
We all know that careers are challenging. My sister and co-founder, Nikki Gusz, and I felt this ourselves, and we founded a new company that we are excited to publicly announce today. Lloyd is the result of many months of research and development in collaboration with a group of inspiring initial members. While everyone strives to attain his or her ideal career trajectory, we recognize that there are few consistent support structures that actually partner with an individual, and fewer still that work directly with individuals for the entirety of their career. Lloyd aims to fill this void.
When a member joins Lloyd they are paired with their own personal career navigator. It is incredibly important to build trust in these one-on-one relationships, and we accomplish this today through regular phone / video conversations (often several times / month) along with tailored goal-setting unique to each member. As we onboard additional members, we use each of these experiences to deepen our insights about directing one’s career at-large. In fact, we are already seeing the positive results of network effects, with each new member strengthening the value created for all current members. Broader membership, and the shared knowledge that comes with it, lends credence to our service and gives Lloyd a voice to place our members directly into job opportunities that advance their careers.
More philosophically, Lloyd is built on the premise that a person’s career is among the most important investments of emotion, time, and money of their life. We believe that the personal relationships we foster with our members are a key support structure as members successfully navigate the intricacies of building a career. Our initial members are incredibly inspiring, spanning many industries, experiences, and career journeys, and we can’t wait to continue to meet and work with new members moving forward. Lloyd’s aim is to inspire career clarity, over the long-term.
Nikki and I also want to recognize the tremendous support that we have received from our parents (thanks Mom and Dad!), friends, family, and spouses … thank you for listening to our endless musings over the last many months. I also personally want to thank the AdhereTech team (especially founders Josh, Mike, and John) for teaching me so much—I can’t wait to witness the continued success. And to all of our mentors—thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is just the beginning for Lloyd. You can expect to hear more about our products and services in the coming months. If you’re interested in learning more, get in touch with our team or me personally (firstname.lastname@example.org).
