Hey, I’m Leighton Taylor.
I’m a consultant for small ecommerce businesses using Shopify. I’ve been running my business remotely for 5 years, and my wife Ryan and I have had the opportunity to travel Mexico, Ecuador, and South East Asia while working from our laptops.
I’m a big proponent of writing your own life script. I don’t believe you should go to college just because that’s what you’re supposed to do, or buy a house, or get a car loan, or get a traditional job, or wait until you’re in your 60s to retire. Those things are right for some people, but I think it’s time to start questioning those assumptions.
There is more opportunity in the world than ever before to create value that other people will pay you for outside of a traditional job setting, to travel long-term, to build wealth, and to create freedom and fulfillment in your life through hard, smart work.
I’m no guru, and I haven’t figured all of this out. I love helping people though, and my purpose with this blog is to share what I’m learning about personal finance, time management, freelancing/solo consulting, and entrepreneurship.
My ecommerce agency is Envision.io. I publish a blog and podcast to help people build successful ecommerce businesses, Ecommerce Pulse. You can follow me on Twitter @LeightonTaylor. I’m currently living in Charleston, South Carolina.
