Sylaisha Ivy Taylor
My name is Sylaisha Ivy Taylor (also known as, Slay). I am an all-things STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related nerd who loves essential oils, the environment and tiny houses. My love for science sparked early in my childhood when my brother and I would take apart old electronics and reassemble them; we even fixed our own computers. I freelanced in high school building websites, performing data recovery and recording audio study guides. I earned my Associates degree from Valencia Community College and graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelors Degree in Interpersonal Organizational/Communications. I even earned a few certificates in Information Technology. I just love learning new things and sharing that knowledge with others.
Immediately after college, I worked for a Florida State Representative. I did contract work for a multifunctional printer company and learned more than I needed to know about printers. I was an IT Specialist at a Middle-High School. I landed my dream job creating behind the scenes magic for a Mouse and his friends all while running Think Outside The World as a technology consulting business.
Incredible right?! Well, that’s when I hit a turning point. I was discussing career goals with one of my many mentors and she asked me this:”Have you made time for yourself or are you working yourself into a grave?” If I can be completely transparent with you, the world of technology can be a lonely place at times. It can be rewarding but at what cost? For me, it was close relationships. I would be so immersed in a project, friends (and family) hadn’t seen me in days, months and in some cases, years. I missed out on so many life changing events and experiences.The fun and vibrant me was fading. In that moment, I finally arrived at the fork in the road. That’s when my business and personal goals shifted.
In 2019, I began incorporating Young Living Essential Oils in our Immersive Experiences. After discovering amazing results, Think Outside The World evolved from being solely a technology consulting business to transforming hearts & minds in a positive way.
Sometimes you have to change your mindset, to experience true freedom.
I am no expert on every subject known to man but I just love sharing about the neat things I find that may help others, just as much as it has blessed me.
I look forward to connecting with you!
