On the show today is Taylor Lindsay-Noel
. Taylor is the owner of Cup of Te
, host of the Tea Time with Tay
podcast, and, believe it or not after listening to our conversation, is just getting started with her entrepreneurial journey.
I wanted to bring her on because, in the summer of 2008, I was a tall and gumpy 13-year-old who liked playing video games. Taylor was a 14-year-old elite gymnast on track to represent Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games. But on July 15th of 2008, she had a tragic accident on the gym floor that broke her neck and would leave her with full to partial paralysis in all four limbs. Despite this, she’s now a successful owner and operator of an e-commerce business that was just featured in Oprah’s “Favorite Things” — a listing and stamp of approval only awarded to a few select brands every year.
You’ll hear about how Taylor used writing and poetry to sort through her thoughts and communicate better, how her podcast led to starting an e-commerce company, and of course how she managed to get featured in Oprah’s Favorite Things.
