Taylor Made Consulting Services was created to assist those in need of career counseling services and guidance. Originally, the focus was on helping at-risk populations access professional writing, coaching, and consulting services that are typically beyond financial reach. We pride ourselves on purposefully charging below market value rates for our services because our target market are those most at risk who often fall between the cracks of the systems in place for our society.

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is receiving genuine and honest feedback from my clients. When they win, I win! I love helping others make their dreams come true!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things that come with being a business owner is time and financial management. It's more than a notion to run a business. Entrepreneurship is hard but thankfully possible.

My advice to budding entrepreneurs and future business owners would be to research, hone your craft, and network. Understanding your target market is critical to your success; remaining current on industry changes and networking with others are all essential to starting and growing your business.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
