Tracy Hazzard - Hazzdesign Interview

Tracy Hazzard is an Inc. Columnist and the co-host of three top-ranked podcasts: Feed Your Brand – just listed as one of CIO’s Top 26 Entrepreneur Podcasts to listen to in 2018; the newly launched members-only Product Launch Hazzards; and WTFFF?! – the 3D Print innovation start point featured as one of the exclusive live podcasts at SXSW 2018. With a constant stream of content and products from her authority platform, reaching over 100,000 listeners and viewers each month, Tracy influences and casts branded content and $2 Billion worth of consumer products and innovation around the world.

Hazz Design leads the conversation about strategic & tactical launch planning as the Mass Market and Amazon Product Launch Expert, advising on product design & development, brand & business growth, and services or resources that actually work. From 25 years of experience as a Retail Product Strategist and from the last decade as an Amazon Product Launch Expert, I regularly advise corporate executives, start-up incubators, marketing, and sales teams to rethink their product launch strategy to create success by design, remove launch land mines and build impact so they can turnaround their product mix to deliver brand promise.
