I'm a huge fan of Gary Vaynerchuk and of his show "Ask Gary Vee".
Recently, I came across a call that he received from Taylor. And I absolutely loved their dialogue, and the way he opened her eyes (and mine too).
She was challenged by Gary to create a business in the next 30 days and to document everything. Since then, I've been following her journey and loving it!
So I decided to get an interview with Taylor Clark, because I thought that would be really interesting!
Thank you very much for this opportunity! Here's my interview with Taylor Clark:
The Greatest Minds: Interview with Taylor Clark
Question 1. Who is Taylor Clark? And what did she do to be where she is?
Taylor Clark: I am a 22 year old badass business women who is obsessed with apparel and wanderlust. I have taken every opportunity presented to me and went full force ahead with it. I think that’s helped me get to where I am, which is graduated from college with 2 degrees and my first business.
Question 2. I listened to your interview with Gary Vee, and his words also opened my eyes! What was the most valuable lesson your learnt with Gary?
Taylor Clark: Probably to stop thinking and just go DO! The time spend watching what other people are doing is time you could be spending to build something for yourself. That resonated with me a lot.
Question 3. How would your schedule look like, if tomorrow you had 100% of focus + 100% of energy + 100% of time (24 hours). Basically, what would you do on a perfect day?
Taylor Clark: I would probably do what I have been doing this past week. Wake up and do the usual brush my teeth and breakfast. Then go on my computer and catch up on emails, tweak my website, and post something on all social platforms. Then research my next business move, and begin to implement it online through network connections or build it online myself. Have some time in there for reading and personal development. I would just constantly be doing something.
Question 4. I’m now reading your blog, and watching your vlogs about the #30DayGaryVeeChallenge. What are your projects for the future?
Taylor Clark: Future projects are to launch another company! But right now I am super focused on www.digitalnomadapparel.com and making that the online destination for everything digital nomad.
Question 5. I’m a huge fan of morning rituals, because they changed my life. Do you have any type of ritual to begin a new day? If so, please describe it.
Taylor Clark: Yes I had a morning ritual before my call with Gary where I would wake up, brush my teeth, go make green tea, cook some eggs, and play with my dogs. Now it looks like wake up and go to my computer lol
Question 6. What is the most precious advice you can give to people who aren't doing enough to accomplish their dreams?
Taylor Clark: Stop overthinking it. The biggest challenge you will face when starting your first business is getting out of your own head. Stop over thinking, judging, and just DO.
Question 7. What was the lowest point in your career/life and how did you overcome it?
Taylor Clark: Lowest point was when I had graduated college and spent 8 months doing nothing towards my own business. I always wanted to own a company and yet I did nothing to help me achieve that. So I quit my job the week before my call with Gary to start something.
Question 8. If you could only live by one principle what would that be? And why?
Taylor Clark: Do what you love. It’s cliche I know but if you’re not doing what you love then why do anything at all? You’re wasting your life.
Question 9. Where can we stalk you, Taylor Clark?
Taylor Clark: haha my personal blog is @thefabulousjourney (Instagram) and www.thefabulousjourney.com and my new business is @digitalnomadapparel (Instagram) and website is www.digitalnomadapparel.com
