When I got my first job and admitted I didn’t like working for someone else, I was told that what was most people did and that I needed to accept it as a reality. After I graduated from college and a Master’s degree, I didn’t feel any different about the matter. And I discovered a reality about working that more and more of us are facing: There was no safe haven in a job, no pension, and no assurances that the company was going to look out for the employee. As a tech writer I bounced from contract to contract and realized I had none of the benefits of being self-employed and all of the disadvantages. So I decided to stop playing by other people’s rules and start playing by my own rules.That’s when I got certified as a coach and started my own business Imagine Your Reality Business Coaching. I teach business owners how to move their business from survive to thrive!
My approach to business coaching is holistic, in that I like to discover the whole picture of your business and how it fits into your life. When I coach you on your business, I look at how your business fits into your life and help you balance it with your life, while developing processes that help you run your business more effectively. People hire me to solve problems that are stopping them from being successful with their business. Whether its finances, marketing, networking, work-life balance, or some other type of problem, I can adapt to and solve the problems in your business.
Taylor is a great business coach. He will assist you with finding where your business is getting stuck and even where you’re personally getting stuck. Everything in your life impacts your business, which is why a holistic coach like Taylor is far more valuable than a standard “business only” coach. Highly recommended!

When I’m not coaching, I’m writing books and articles. I’m the author of Understanding the Social in Social Media, and Social Success in Social Media and I’m currently writing a book on Referral Networking and how to build a network of trust. I’m also an avid video game and board game player who occasionally enjoys sharing some of what I’m playing on my blog. I’m also an avid reader of a variety of subjects. While I mostly review business books, there’s also the occasional review of other books I’m reading, which includes interests such as social science, literacy, and psychology. I believe that understanding human behavior is an important part of succeeding at business and life, as well as inventing your own rules that you can live and work by.

Taylor is an articulate and effective educator, who assists entrepreneurs in generating a linear plan of action to grow their businesses. I recently paid for, participated in, and very much enjoyed one of Taylor’s classes, covering available online social-networking technology, and how to effectively harness and systematize it to expand and develop business via the electronic medium. Taylor was well researched and well organized, taught from an outline, and re-enforced key teaching points with relevant examples from his experience, as well as that of others. I learned a great deal from Taylor in a short amount of time, as he also creates a very comfortable atmosphere within which participate and ask questions. — Steve Chapman, Portland or
