Running a business and having realizations go hand-in-hand. It’s often difficult to know what the right answer is to many of life’s questions until you try multiple things. For Everette Taylor, the path to launching his own business was one wrought with realizations and life lessons.
Growing up, Everette was a natural marketer with an inclination for branding, selling and consulting, even when it was just with candy bars and mixed CDs at a tender age. It wasn’t until he grew up and tried working in other fields that he realized his passion and innate abilities were something he should pursue as a career. After chasing job security in full-time positions in the tech industry, he changed gears and adjusted his focus on what he loved, rather than what he felt like he should be doing, and his company, MilliSense, was born.
Although his road to entrepreneurship has resulted in many sleepless nights and has been the cause for missing myriad social and family events and get-togethers, the lessons learned on the journey towards launching and running MilliSense have been invaluable ones. Today, Everette is opening up and sharing more about his experience with entrepreneurship and the nuggets of inspiration and knowledge he’s gathered along the way. –Sabrina
