We had the good fortune of connecting with Skyler Reed and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Skyler, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and own my own business. It came to a point in my life where I wanted to control my narrative and live a more fulfilling life. I was called to it at the time I launched my business. I was even called to the city of Atlanta. I think it was destined. It felt time when I was building clientele I wasn’t even seeking out. I realized that I can touch and inspire way more people if I focus on it full time.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I provide voice and piano lessons to children and adults. I recently released my second online course titled The Vocalist Plan. I’m a content creator and have been building my YouTube, where I provide my subscribers with a plethora of vocal tutorials. I enjoy helping people sing better, which inevitably increases their confidence. I studied music in college and spent my early career performing in operas, bars, etc. I made a life out of being an artist, performing, and creating, which gives me the experience to assist students at all levels. It was somewhat easy because I was following my passion. Everything just flowed, and opportunities came. At the same time, there was a learning curve with initially trying to get hired as a working musician. I learned to not jump at every opportunity, but to really assess and choose what is truly best for you. I’d love the world to know that I am here to inspire, whether it’s through music lessons, a live performance, or lyrics from my songs. I want to make a massive positive impact.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
One of my favorite spots is Atlantic Station for shopping, vendors, and a variety of great food options. Another place I enjoy is the belt-line at Ponce City Market. It’s just a lot to see.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Good Girl PR. Nickie did an amazing job helping me promote my last project, Are We There Yet.
