HEY THERE! I'M TAYLOR!

I'm a Midwestern girl with a global heart. I love adventure, making a difference, wellness, small business, spending time with my loved ones, and working. Yes, working. I work a lot, because I love what I do and I love you!

I enjoy connecting with people, watching movies, golfing, traveling, reading blogs, going to the farmer's market, taking walks in nature, trying out new farm to table restaurants, and watching the Nebraska Huskers + Kansas City Royals.

Professionally, I'm a multi-passionate entrepreneur and proud. As a Certified Holistic Health Coach + a 'make it happen' girl, I thrive on helping others reach their potential + live a kind + beautiful life. 

ULTIMATELY, I GUIDE PEOPLE + BUSINESSES TO SEE WHAT’S POSSIBLE, BREAK FREE FROM LIMITATIONS, AND BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN WHERE THEY ARE NOW AND WHERE THEY WANT TO BE IN THEIR LIVES OR BUSINESSES.

That's why I co-founded The Kind Brands.

Unfortunately we live in a society that is 'busy busy busy' and 'go go go'. We are constantly stressed, undernourished, and purposeless. I was this way for a long time until I turned it all around for the better.

I realized how much my health + small lifestyle choices affected my daily life. I started doing more research, listening to lectures, and questioning what we, as a society, have been told. I began eating better, exercising more consistently, getting my stress under control, getting better quality of sleep, removing all forms of toxins + negativity from my life, and adding unexpected positivity to my life.

Oh! And, I quit my day job. Yup! I left my "steady", "good-paying" 8-5 job for a less steady, significantly less paying, flexible job that feeds my soul, not depletes it. 

I have been on the journey of living a kind life for a few years and haven't turned back. I am in awe over how the quality of life changed for me and how taking small actions leads to big change.

IT'S A WAY OF LIFE THAT HAS SHOWN TO BE GREATLY BENEFICIAL FOR ME, MANY OF MY FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND CLIENTS.


my Why


I created a kind journey because I see a movement happening. A movement of people wanting to live a better life. A ‘kind’ life. Ever since I started living with intention, more holistically, mindfully, consciously, and started making my dreams happen, people ask us how. So I launched coaching programs, group programsarticles, guides, workshops, courses, a tribe, and other special offerings to help people reach their highest potential, find their happiness, and live their dream life!

I do this because I know the struggle is real when it comes to living a happy + vibrant life. It’s easy to feel lost, to fall victim to  excuses and misunderstood fears, to feel judged and alone when expressing  dreams, but I'm here to help you shake things up and change narratives. I'm dedicated to sharing my journey, mistakes, successes, and exactly what we've found on the other side of chasing your dreams so others can have a roadmap to true happiness.

IT IS MY PASSION TO TAKE BEAUTIFUL SOULS FROM SURVIVING TO THRIVING IN A SIMPLE, STRESS-FREE, AUTHENTIC AND FUN WAY.


my message to you


We don't have to always be busy, stressed, tired, unhealthy, bored, and fill our lives with drama.

LIFE CAN BE DIFFERENT . . . IT CAN BE AMAZING, and beautiful, and thriving.

YOU HAVE THE CHOICE. AND I'M GOING TO HELP YOU GET THERE.

I love helping others thrive in their passion pursuits and in their daily life. It's been such a great experience and has given me the ability to help so many people that I am very thankful for - and the fulfillment it gives me is immeasurable.

I want to help empower you to live the life you truly want to lead, and not waste another second.

Join with me so we can help create a conscious + intentional living that works for you, so you can lead a beautiful + kind life.

Stay kind + live beautiful!


follow my personal journey


Boy oh boy am I on social media. Not only do I have social media accounts for my businesses, but I've got my own personal ones too. They showcase my personal kind journey and my life as a kind business owner. I'm transparent and love connecting with people on a more personal level. My feeds aren't "perfectly branded", in fact, they're not branded at all, so if you're looking for something aesthetically beautiful, clean, and streamlined, follow a kind journey or a kind business. If you want to see the messy behind the brand, then follow my personal journey :)

Obviously, I want you to follow them all but any of them that resonate with you is best.
