We had the good fortune of connecting with Taylar Broadnax and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Taylar, is there something you believe many others might not?
“You shouldn’t care what people think” First off, trying to avoid what people think only leads to thinking about what people think! Let’s be real, we’re all human and have moments when we truly wonder what people think of us. It’s a normal and natural feeling. My advice is to not take PERSONAL what people may think of you. I feel it’s okay to have an open mind to peoples opinion, but it’s up to you how you receive it. So that’s my key to a successful mind, body and spirit. 

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
It wasn’t until I attended college that I started considering myself a creative. My friends and family had always pointed it out. I was the one that would come up with crazy ideas to decorate for an event, be open to try new things like theatre, and always using my friends as my muse for makeup and hair ideas. My problem is I get bored easily as well. I constantly like to be doing things that flows my creative juices. As I’m building my fashion brand, I’ve learned consistency. I’m also learning to take my time when creating new concepts and putting ideas to fruition. I would like my brand to aspire the female sex through fashion. Most importantly, I know how challenging having a daughter can be. Your constantly thinking about her future, morals and character. I think it’s important we raise our daughters with poise and allow them to grow into the flowers they are destined to be.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In my opinion, the best part about Atlanta are the attractions. Without a doubt, I’d take my visitor to Skyline Park at Ponce City Market, bike riding at Piedmont Park, Go Karting at Andretti’s, then shopping at Lenox Mall to top it off. For dining I’d go to Benihana’s, 10th & Piedmont, Mango’s, and Twisted Soul.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to dedicate my shoutout to Patricia Pickett. At the time she mentored me, she was the manager of Celebrity Personality & DJ, Traci Steele. She put me in positions to learn what’s it’s like running a business. As a black woman, she showed me what’s it’s like to truly grind in an industry that second guesses us. It was refreshing to see a woman who not only owns multiple business(es), but also still has a 9-5 with kids and a family of her own! She truly showed me the grind shouldn’t stop no matter your age!
