We had the good fortune of connecting with Tailiah Breon and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tailiah, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind my success are my failures. All of my wins are built on losses, which in hindsight doesn’t make them losses at all. My success has absolutely taught me the oxymoron of life when it comes to achieving anything. If you are afraid to fail, you are not ready to achieve. If you do achieve, it is because you have understood the value of failing. My losses have taught me and prepared me to operate at a higher level. And that recipe never changes, it just keeps recycling at new stages of your life.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
Trail in error, embracing my mistakes and staying humble along the process of learning as a creative has helped me professionally. What sets me apart from others, is where my focus is placed. I don’t seek to be set apart, that’s forced energy..I just rather honor who I am at moments of my life and that authenticity always sets its own habitat independently.
Growing professionally was not easy but it has always been enlightening and that has made it easier. I overcame challenges by simply failing and then failing again more intelligently. I took advice, I stayed inspired, I tried new things and I try to remove my ego when doing business.
I have learned that quality and character will always ensure the most secure foundation. Never compare yourself to others, work hard for the things you want, choose your sacrifices with wisdom and make sure you are consistent.
I want the world to be inspired and made better by my work.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We can start the day off with a brunch at Poor Calvin’s, do something active and outdoors like bike riding at the Comet Trail. Stop by a local winery and have a drink at the rooftop of my residence in midtown, then maybe enjoy a tourist attraction like the illuminarium Museum.
Of course have dinner at my favorite spot, Two Urban Licks and end the night at the movies at Main Event!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to dedicate this shoutout to my beloved Grandmother, Peggy C. Battle. She showed love and support for my journey up until her last breath on earth in 2021.
