Taylor Soul Designs

Hello Friends!

If you read my ‘About Me‘ page, then you know I refuse to work a 9-5 cooperate job. It all began way back when I had gotten laid off from my marketing job I had been at for two years back in 2019. I was completely overworked for something that I was not even passionate about nor believed in. Why was I doing it? Well why any normal human keeps a job they hate – to make money. I quickly realized that I would rather be happy and broke than unhappy and rich. I will stand to that this day, because life is just too short and misery and stress cause nothing but illness. I quickly began to think of ways I could make money without having to search for a job I didn’t even want.

I had just been getting into crystals and learning about energy healing – an obsession that began in my Holistic Health classes at Western CT. When I realized that I was able to put the two things I was really into, into a JOB, is when I knew I would never let myself work a corporate job again. Crystal jewelry making. You may or may not know, but jewelry making has been a passion of mine since I was in 1st grade. I would sit in my room for HOURS, collect beads with my best friend at the time, and just create the most random things day in and day out. Those beads never left my side. I still have them to this day. It wasn’t until I had gotten the brilliant idea to take these crystals I had and make them into something I could wear, to keep on me all the time. I slowly taught myself how to take a piece of Clear Quartz, wrap it, and turn it into a necklace. I became OBSESSED. I made 10, 20, 30 of them. I was so excited I wanted to immediately start selling them. Little did I know they were the most atrocious looking things you could ever see. I didn’t care.

I began giving a necklace to everyone, my friends, family, and random people I would see out. I wanted people to see my creations. I wanted my own brand so badly. I was so excited, I started to form the perfect name. It changed a few times but I had finally stuck with Taylor Soul Designs. I quickly made an Etsy page and worked day in and day out to be my own photographer, social media manager, planner, and creator. After promoting my new storefront all over my social media the support I had received was extraordinary. People were BUYING my stuff. And that made me the most motivated I have ever been to make this work. I have all of my first customers to thank for that!

It has been such a wild ride from there on out. My Etsy page quickly turned into my own website. It’s been about two years now and Taylor Soul Designs is thriving – a work in progress always – but thriving! I have yet to have the desire to go back to a ‘real job’, although it hasn’t been the most supportive career, I have faith in everything I am doing to get to there I strive to be. That also led me to here, blogging! I am always learning and creating and changing things, tweaking, and improving – my brand, myself, and my plan. I am so blessed to be able to experience and go through such a learning process. If you are here, supporting me or have supported me in anyway, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart because you are the reason my dreams are coming true!
