Hi! I’m Tayler.
I caught the travel bug at 16 after my first trip to London. Up to this point I had been on a few family vacations and few trips revolved around sports tournaments, but this was my first experience in another country experiencing another culture.
I made a promise to myself that I would study abroad college, which I did, also to London. I was fortunate enough to return to London for a 6-month internship shortly after graduation.
And the rest is history as they say… except that’s not really how it happened.
Instead I found myself working in a cubicle as a study abroad advisor encouraging students to explore the world while I was at home wishing to see the places I saw in my students’ photos.
Then I turned 30. And decided to stop living the life I thought I was supposed to live and decided to start building a future I wanted to be a part of. I quit my job, moved me and my cat in with my mom and started an online business as a Virtual Assistant.
The “what have I just done” thoughts were real, but I was driven and frankly, I had told too many people about my plan to back out.
And in 2018, I packed up my life and business into my suitcase and moved to New Zealand. I had a lot to figure out still, but I was doing it.
And in the end, all I could really ask of myself was to try. I always had the option to go back home, but I wouldn’t always have the opportunity to live in New Zealand and subsequently make the world my home.
I won’t sugar coat it, it’s had its highs and lows, but I’m dedicated to living out my dreams and helping as many others do the same in the process. I’m still learning and will never pretend to have it all figured out. But if you are interested in being a Digital Nomad, house sitting, or online business I’m here for you… figuring it out right alongside you.
I’d love to hear from you! You can send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out on social media @travelingtayler.
