Taylor’s dreams derive from unpretentious beginnings in Cincinnati, Ohio. With the tragic news that her father was facing a double-life prison sentence, is triumphantly what led her to entrepreneurial success. Committed to helping her father plead his innocence, this entrepreneur-at-heart put her corporate insurance position in jeopardy, which forced her to choose her livelihood, or her fathers freedom. She chose to start her own agency, Taylor Insurance Services. From there, she pursued real estate investing and small business lending to become the influential small business advocate she is today. ”Time is Freedom! While fighting for my dad’s freedom is when I realized I was currently imprisoned” For the foreseeable future, Kela Taylor’s mission is to create innovative avenues to bridge the gap in wages, labor segmentation, education, wealth, housing, and investment opportunities between governments, corporations, and individuals.
