Today we’d like to introduce you to Taylor E Alexander.
Hi Taylor, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
As a teen, I developed a love for Accessories. You would always catch me with a ring, earrings, two necklaces, bracelets, and an anklet. TeaBox was birthed while I was in College since then I’ve been building this vision. On November 21st, 2021 I finally stepped out on faith and Launched TeaBox online. I sell Affordable Luxury Unisex Jewelry Solid 14k & 18k white/gold plated jewelry.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Not at all. Being an Entrepreneur & Business owner is a sink-or-swim lifestyle. You have to be willing to put in the work! I was blessed to have my launch day be a success to me, with close to 1k in sales and one month where I had two orders. If you work a full-time demanding job like I do or any Job, you still have to make time for your dream. I’ve learned in this journey consistency is key. There are times when I feel defeated or not creative but I still promote my brand and find ways to get creative as soon as I get that spark. TeaBox is my baby I run by myself. Invested in my dream with my own money. To Packing/Shipping orders, responding to emails, Running my Instagram, etc. When have to go out of town for work my mom steps in as my rock holds me down. The most important gem is making sure you have great customer service, which is so important. The money will come, I don’t focus on that as I truly believe in my brand, But most importantly, Take care of your customers. People work hard, and I want people to have the best experience and feel confident when they experience TeaBox.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
In my professional life, I am a full-time Executive Assistant to a Ceo of an Amazing Luxury Streetwear Brand. I specialize in getting shit done, lol. Much is given much is required. I am blessed to do what I do and experience things in my current job that people can only dream of, Working under a Thriving Brand and an Iconic Ceo every day is a new challenge that can be hard. I am the type of a person if I’m going to do something I’m going to do it with excellence. I’m most proud of going after my dreams, it wasn’t an easy road and I’m just getting started, I have great things in the works, But just never gave up on myself I have always known since I was a kid I will make a mark on the world in some way. I am always going to always follow through on anything that I put out or my name is attached to. What sets me apart from others is my heart. I thank God for my pure heart, I do everything with a genuine love for others. And you cant walk all over me either. I am always doing something to help others if you call me you know ima know someone for something and find a way how we can connect and get the job done. Call me Mz.GetitDone. I want everyone to win and I think that comes from God and family and friends I am blessed to have a really great support system.
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I love our city. I work for an east coast brand but they know I rep the West all day. I truly feel that were the best city I can’t picture myself living anywhere else but California or LA. Were are different. I’m blessed to have my peers and my friends be true Angelos. LA we have a different hussle, we grew up around seeing fame everybody is famous in LA we are so creative and have so many amazing people and brands doing Big things. I am proud of My City. What I like least is sometimes the lack of support or killings of course. Nipsey Dying was a huge loss to the city just anything negative, we’re so much stronger together.
