#15: Rising Above Life’s Challenges & Being Your Best Self with Tatianna Tailor-Tait

As an entrepreneur in the short-term rental industry, it’s important to remember that self-improvement can help you overcome challenges and achieve success.

Life can throw us unexpected challenges such as bad breakups, the loss of a loved one, or job loss. However, investing in self-improvement can make a significant difference. It can make you stronger, wiser, and better equipped to handle whatever life throws your way.

Take, for example, award-winning interior designer Tatianna Taylor-Tait. After experiencing multiple life-changing losses, Tatianna didn’t give up or blame others for her misfortune. Instead, she invested in herself and her passion for interior design, which led her to the world of short-term rentals.

In this episode, Tatianna shares her inspiring journey of how she overcame challenges by following her passion for interior design and making it happen in the short-term rental industry. 

By investing in yourself and pursuing your passion, you too can overcome challenges and achieve success in the exciting world of short-term rentals and Airbnb.
