If I haven’t personally talked to you yet, I would love to introduce myself!
My name is Taylor. I’m a full time, destination wedding and elopement photographer (www.TMinspired.com). My job has allowed me to meet some truly authentic and loving friends. It’s the most rewarding job to be able to connect with others and to celebrate with them. I am a newlywed to my high school sweetheart, Nathan and our sweet dog #littlelilycujo just turned 13 years old. She loves long walks around the nearby park at sunset with us, and we love it so much, too. I’ve always had a creative mind and an introverted heart. Having creative outlets helped me express myself and break out of my shell.
I love Jesus. I love coffee. I love to cook. I love tacos. I love family. I love people. I also love adventures, but I equally love staying home in my PJ’s.
My oil journey:
About 4 years ago, stress and anxiety took over my heart. I couldn’t sleep at night, I couldn’t drive. I could barely function. I went to counseling and found so much support, but my heart was restless. I was seeking for anything else that could help me, just for additional support, day to day.
About 3 years ago, I tried oils for the first time. For the first time in a long time, I felt like I could take a deep breath again. My love for Young Living was instant. I fell hard, you guys. But I was a retail customer who found a few oils of what I liked and just stuck with it. I had no idea the incredible oils and products that I was missing out on! Leading up to my wedding day, it dawned on me of how passionate I am about this company and these very powerful little bottles. I started sharing my passions with my friends and my family, and heavily relied on these oils throughout the stress of our wedding. (A very long story cut short: our venue had to change 2 weeks prior to our wedding day, due to the Eagle Creek Fire up in Oregon. Everything worked out but BOY was that stressful to replan an entire wedding in 5 days.)
On October 18th, I had a hard shift at my side job of being a barista. (Honestly, I‘ve never been one one to work for someone else, and it’s pretty exhausting with little to no reward after a hard shift. Friends, please appreciate your baristas.) I got home, immediately laid in bed, and just thought to myself – there HAS to be a better way. I reached out to my YL sponsor to chat about the business side of this company. We talked about the premium starter kit, the essential rewards program, the business model, and the opportunity to receive residual income for my and Nathan’s future family.
Skeptical of joining a MLM, I asked her a bunch of questions and she answered them honestly. That day, my mind opened up to it, and I dove in. I hustled – determined to grow this business as fast as possible. I want to be to the point where I don’t have to worry about the possibility of one day not being able to work anymore. I still get to be a full time wedding photographer, but I also get to share my passion of oils and how I’ve been using them daily to support my own health and wellness. It’s a win-win.
Two weeks after pursuing the business side of Young Living, I already reached the star level. I received my first commissions check and was blown away by the progress I made in just 2 weeks. As an introvert who doesn’t like to “sell” but prefers to instead, SHARE my favorite, life-changing products with my friends. I’m incredibly proud of what I’ve accomplished so far – but I’m also so excited because I know this is just the beginning. It hasn’t even felt like work!
There’s so much freedom in this business, guys. There’s also community. Support, encouragement, celebration of accomplishments, and authentic relationships.
I’m so stoked on this new adventure. If I’ve learned anything in 2017 – it’s that fear won’t hold me down.
To summarize, freedom.
Oils have helped me feel free. Free from fear, anxiety, sleeplessness, and soon, financial burdens. I’m working on living a healthier and a more whole life. Every day, I take a step closer towards making a chemical free home for me and my husband. I’m determined to reach financial freedom with the residual income that this business can provide.
What fuels me is my love for oils and my love for people. Work like this doesn’t feel like work at all. Being able to share with others how much oils have supported me has been such a wonderful journey so far – and we’re just getting started.
I would love to get to know you, too! Join me on social media or send me an email.
