Today we’d like to introduce you to Taylor Sicinski.
Hi Taylor, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I was born and raised in Long Island, NY. Even as a little girl, I always had that entrepreneurial spirit. When I was only 6 years old I started my first business selling bracelets on Fire Island. At the time, I never knew that that would be the core of my business now as an adult.
I moved to Florida at the age of 18 leaving my entire family behind to pursue a degree in Marketing at The University of Central Florida. Upon graduating, I decided that I wanted to stay in Florida and found my own apartment. I went through various jobs at Marketing Agencies but never felt fulfilled. It was not my true passion.
After losing my last job due to COVID-19, I decided to put 100% of my efforts and time into starting my own brand and business. I started with my roots, jewelry making. I began an Instagram account, built my own website, and started reaching out to boutiques and started selling.
I was picked up by a boutique on Long Island called Willy Nilly Trading Company where I now have been selling my bracelets, rings, and now tote bags for over a year! The business is booming and I’m constantly selling. I couldn’t ask for more!
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Smooth? NO WAY. It has been very difficult. First and foremost, I wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of my Fiancé, William. He is my rock and my support system.
When sales were down he would convince me to just keep trying and pushing until eventually, sales kept rolling in. If it wasn’t for his unconditional support and love I wouldn’t have made it through the humps and struggles.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I’m also an Instagram Influencer and work with several brands that I truly believe in and support fully in order to create new and unique content. I currently have about 30,400 followers. My handle is Tayaaski.
I also have accounts for my dogs who are also influencers on their own! @Cheenski and @FenderBluetheBully.
What does success mean to you?
Success is no longer being in a state of fear or anxiety. Success is shown in wealth, health, and happiness!
