Glad to be here!
My name is Taylor Marek. I'm 30 years old and have been running businesses for as long as I can remember.
When I was young, I remember my parents telling me that if I wanted to earn money I had to make something worth selling. Probably because they didn't want me to expect an allowance from them and they wanted to spark a desire in me to figure things out for myself. It helped in my entrepreneurial journey in so many ways.
From the early days of me running a lemonade/popcorn stand, to cutting grass and raking leaves, to shoveling snow and almost freezing my hands off I learned it all. I read every book on business from my local library that I could get my hands on.
From that it has grown to where I am today, granted I'm deliberately skipping over a whole decade of my life to make a short introduction. Right now I have a full-time job and run 2 companies on the side along with taking care of a family. The two companies I run are a social media marketing agency and a tech news website.
I'd be happy to talk further if you want to know more. Glad to meet all of you, I'll be around best I can to contribute and help grow this community!
