All Things Wed - Tay Meets World

All Things Wed

10:22:00 AM

Today I made an exciting announcement on Instagram - the launch of my new business, Wed Design Co.! I'm incredibly excited for this new venture but what I'm even more excited about? 
1. That I actually did it and 
2. There is even more to come. 

Last year, I had the opportunity to learn an incredible amount with the company I was with. After a slew of business decisions I didn't morally agree with, I decided I needed to leave. After months of a little voice in my head saying, "This isn't right Taylor - you need to leave," to the last month the little voice saying, "It's now or never." I listened to the voice and trusted myself. Wow is that a hard thing to do. 

I'm the type of person who lives to work - I love my career. I feel fulfilled knowing I'm contributing and making a difference. After what seemed like hundreds of applications, I made it to the final round of an interview with the FBI. Ya'll, I have wanted to be a secret agent for such a long time. When I found out that I didn't pass, a moment of devastation came over me. What was I going to do now? I had just quit. I didn't have anything lined up. Most would say this is a very reckless decision but the truth is, it was only a matter of time before I was let go from the company anyways.
I had a long drive to a family holiday and that's when it occurred to me. I needed to do my own thing (and still continue my search) to finally try and make that work. You see, I've always been the type of person who believes that you can be anything. I still want to be everything and do everything. I'm enthralled with all the opportunity we have in this world and we are crazy if we do not grasp that opportunity to take a risk.  I had a door close, then another door close when I didn't pass the interview. Doors closing are the same as redirection. I was being redirected to the path I'm meant to be on. Most of the time, we become down, unmotivated or depressed when we are faced with rejection and adversity. I look at it as, "okay - what's next?!" If not this...then what? Redirection is a positive thing - it's what will put you on track to fulfill your purpose. 

When life falls into place, that's when I know you're on the right path. We are blind - we have no idea what is in store for us in 1 month, 1 year, 10 years, etc., but what we have is our dreams and motivation to achieve those dreams. If dreams fail, you start over OR find something else that sets fire to your soul. 

Today, I can say that I have a company. An LLC, an operating agreement, the whole 9 yards. What's even more fulfilling is that we did it on our own and now, it's up to us to make it successful. How cool is that?! 

If you feel stuck - if you need a sign - this is it. You have to trust yourself enough to know that there is something greater for you out there. There is always something greater. I'm a firm believer that we are meant for more than what we can possibly imagine. Curing disease, being your own boss, making waves to save the environment, be the best in your field - whatever it is, you are meant for even more. You have to believe it, to achieve it. 

And of course, because this is my little nugget - Wed Design Co. is for the brides and grooms who are doing it themselves. We provide support and guidance in planning your big day. Allow us to walk you through initially, or its entirety, until you reach the aisle - then you can take it from there😉.
