Today we’d like to introduce you to Regina Taylor.
Hi Regina, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Taylor Homemade is something I created by accident. My mission was to find away to resolve a mom issue. My daughter has asthma, I wanted to find away to help her asthmatic systems without having to always depend on medication. After researching, I discovered that there were a lot of chemicals and preservatives in the food we eat. From that moment on, I cooked fresh. One day, I thought if chemicals are in our food, what’s in out spices. I begun to play around with different spices and just like that Taylor Homemade was born.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It’s been a little difficult getting exposure. Finding vendors and finding a storefront has been almost impossible. So It hasn’t been smooth but it’s been worth it. My mother once told me, “Anything that comes to easy, won’t last long”… so although the road hasn’t been smooth, I know its worth it.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
Outside of running Taylor Homemade. I’m a businesswoman. I’ve had the pleasure of being employed by Coppin State University for a little over ten years. Having a career where I am constantly in contact with people from different walks of life, gives me an advantage. Having this career taught me the importance of customer service and communication. Those are two skills I fully utilize in my business.
Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Sometimes in life, you just have to jump!! Sometimes you’ll fall and sometimes you will soar. Can’t expect people to take a risk on you or your business. If you not willing to bet on yourself. One of the biggest risks ive taken was relocating from my hometown of washington dc to Baltimore MD. I was a young mom who was in college. Batimore was somewhere where I can afford to live and give my daughter great life. So many people told me not to do it. Moving here is the biggest risk ive taken but it was a risk that was worth it… no regrets.
