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

Hi Taylor, how do you think about risk?
I think about risk more of an opportunity you haven’t taken yet with an unsure outcome. The word “risk” makes it sound a lot scarier than it should. Taking risks has been a positive role in my life. Of course, every now and then the outcome isn’t what you want but the majority of risks I’ve taken haven been for the best.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Often times, as a lifestyle influencer you can come across content that doesn’t feel genuine. I pride myself on creating content that is 100% true to who I am. I don’t do create a false online persona, I don’t take any products that don’t align with my lifestyle or the lifestyle of my family. I try to keep my content real and raw as possible. It’s still growing and I’m still in the process of understanding what I want to share with my audience and what I would like to keep to myself. Should I stick with YouTube or go back to blogging? It hasn’t been the easiest process but slowing down and taking breaks in between to look back and understand what works and what doesn’t work usually helps me get back on track.

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.
I’m a sort of a foodie so some of my favorite spots in the city are definitely food related. For breakfast/brunch I love this spot in Southwest ATL called Gocha’s Breakfast Bar. I also really like Egg Harbor Cafe (their strawberry OJ is AMAZING) and Vickery’s Bar & Grill. If we’re looking for fun Andretti Indoor Karting & Games, High Museum of Art (if we’re going for something more sophisticated), and of course a fan favorite is the Trap Museum. I personally haven’t gone here yet but I always hear people talk about the Skyline Park at Ponce, and if we’re just trying to have a chill day we could hang out at Piedmont Park.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My husband deserves a bit of recognition in my success. From day 1, any time I had an idea that I was hesitant to pursue he always made sure to let me know how much he supports me and give me the push I needed to execute.
