Giving Back
Matters

From the Chairwoman
Giving back does matter. IAHSP was founded on the idea of community giving back. IAHSP is a community of business owners who are passionate about Home Staging, Real Estate and Design. But more importantly, our members love their communities, and are making a difference locally. 

In this series, we highlight and feature the businesses and business owners who go above and beyond to serve and help their local communities, and the world.

Please share this article and help me share the stories of people within our community that are making a difference, because Giving Back Matters.
Jennie Norris
IAHSP, Chairwoman

How Giving Back Can Boost Your Bottom Line and Make a Positive Impact on Society
Thank you for sitting with me and sharing about why and how you are so passionate about giving back. Before we get started on that, can you share a little bit about you and your business? Where are you located? What services you offer? Etc.
We are TNT Staging, owned by Tatiana Murga and Tatiana Mozerova, and we are a dynamic staging company located in Charlotte, NC. We offer a range of services, including vacant home staging, real estate photography, short-term rental (STR) set up, and an online furniture store, catering to the needs of investors, builders, homeowners, and real estate agents in the area.
As the "dynamite duo," we bring a unique blend of creativity, passion, and expertise to every project we undertake. Our goal is to exceed our clients' expectations and help them achieve their goals. Whether it's staging a vacant home, setting up a short-term rental property, or providing real estate photography, we are dedicated to providing exceptional service and outstanding results.
How did you get started as a business owner? What were you doing prior? And what was that moment like for you when you made the shift to your current business model?
TNT Staging began with a chance encounter that brought two talented individuals together. Tatiana Murga, with her impressive background in sales and corporate experience at 500 Fortune companies, had relocated from Moscow to the USA. Tatiana Mozerova, on the other hand, had a passion for design and was always brimming with creative ideas. She had lived in China and was and still is a big traveler, always seeking inspiration from new experiences.

The two Tatianas met at a Russian conversational hour at the International House many years ago and hit it off immediately. They soon discovered their shared interest in real estate and interior design.

After Tatiana Mozerova had her first child, she decided to pursue her passion for staging by taking the Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) course in 2017. This gave a start for TNT Staging, but it wasn't until Tatiana Murga joined that the team really took off.

Together, the two Tatianas created a dynamic duo that combined their diverse skill sets and expertise to offer exceptional staging services in the Charlotte, NC area. TNT Staging quickly gained a reputation for delivering beautiful and effective staging solutions that helped sellers showcase their properties in the best possible light.
Now, when it comes to giving back. Everyone has a different passion, typically from a personal life experience. Before we get into how you and your company gives back. Lets start with why you are passionate about giving back. Why does it matter to you that you give back?
Giving back matters to us because we understand firsthand the challenges of starting a new life in a new country. As two immigrant women who have built successful businesses in the USA, we are passionate about sharing our experiences, providing support, and empowering others, especially fellow immigrants. We believe that giving back is a way of acknowledging the support and opportunities that we have received and paying it forward to those who are facing similar challenges. It is a way of creating a positive impact in our community and making a difference in people's lives. We are committed to using our resources, time, and expertise to support causes that align with our values and passions and to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
What is the biggest hurdle you face in addressing this need, and if you could magically solve it, what type of help would you want or need?
The biggest hurdle we face in addressing the need for giving back is finding the time and resources to support all the causes we are passionate about. As business owners, we are constantly juggling multiple responsibilities, and it can be challenging to find the time to volunteer.
We are fortunate to have incredible support from our team members, who are equally passionate about giving back to the community. Our team members have volunteered their time and resources to support our projects in the community. We believe that our team's commitment to giving back is a reflection of our shared values and the culture we have created at TNT Staging. We are proud to have a team that not only excels in their work but also has a heart for making a positive impact in the world.
Now for the good part. How are you and your company helping to address this issue? What do you do to give back?
As a company, we believe in supporting those in need, especially refugees and immigrants who have faced immense challenges and hardships. We understand the impact that war and displacement can have on people's lives, and we are committed to doing what we can to help. In addition to donating our personal items, we also donated furniture that we no longer use in staging. We believe that this furniture can serve a family in need and make a difference in their lives. We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to our community.
Tatiana Mozerova, one of the owners of TNT Staging, recently participated in the Slavic Business Association Conference, "The Power of Giving Back". I was invited to speak about the importance of serving the community and inspiring other business owners to contribute their time, resources, and support to people in need. I spoke about our project in 2021 which we fully furnished a condo for a refugee family from Israel, and how this experience touched our hearts and reinforced our commitment to helping others.
Can you share a story of how you and your company, through your passion for this, impacted a person or your community?
One recent project that we did in the community was to fully furnish a condo for a married couple of refugees from Ukraine with their baby girl on her way. We were moved by their story and wanted to do our part in helping them settle into their new home. Our team members volunteered their time and personal items, such as a baby crib, hair dryer, pots, and pans, to ensure that the family had everything they needed to start their new life. It was heartwarming to see the joy and relief on their faces when they saw their new home, fully furnished and ready for them to move in.

How has your giving back impacted yourself or your team? Sometimes, the greatest impact from helping others, is the impact it makes within ourselves and our team.
Our commitment to giving back has impacted both ourselves and our team in so many positive ways. For us, it has been incredibly fulfilling to use our talents and resources to make a difference in our community. It gives us a sense of purpose beyond just our business and reminds us of what's truly important in life.

Our team members have also been impacted by our giving back initiatives. By volunteering their time and resources, they have been able to develop new skills, form deeper connections with their colleagues, and gain a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment in their work. It's been amazing to see the positive impact that our collective efforts have had, both on the individuals we've helped and on our team as a whole. Charity projects bring teams together and improve relationships within any team.
