We are so proud of you and your inspiring win, Tyllah! When did you know that you wanted to become an entrepreneur?
Tyllah: When I was about 11. I submitted poetry to this contest online and won a prize. I’ve loved the idea of using the internet to make money ever since.
Yasssssss, Tyllah!!! You learned at an early age the power of creating value for others! We love to see it!
You've been an entrepreneur for awhile. So today, what does a *typical day* in your entrepreneurial lifestyle look like?
Tyllah: Every day is different. Sometimes I’m in meetings all day. On other days I have quiet time to work on projects. I like to find something social to do once a week. I work out 3-4 days a week to combat my sedentary lifestyle. I look for cohorts and opportunities to apply for and try to grow my resources to make entrepreneurship easier for me over time. Lately, I’ve been spending more time developing systems, refining processes, and creating preventive measures to eliminate room for miscommunication.
We love how you switch it up to honor every part of you and your business!
So tell us, what were some of your *greatest fears* have you had on your entrepreneurial journey?
Tyllah: My greatest fear at the time of starting was not making enough money to be able to make any real “motion”. I would sit and think about everything that could go wrong and start to psych myself out. Once I learned that I was doing this, I started working on my mindset, changing what media I consumed and getting serious about nurturing my mind. I started studying more and being more intentional with the things I was doing in my business.
Mental agility as an entrepreneur is so key! Can you share a bit about what your support system looks like as an entrepreneur?
Tyllah: It’s very diverse. I have different people in my life for different things. Some people in my life are solely business friends. Some of my friends are for traveling and creating experiences. Others are here for monthly dinners and building a close relationship.
Tyllah, you are such a force to be reckoned with and started so early in your life and now with Touched by Ty! Thank you for sharing your journey and important insights with the community. We are always here cheering you on every step of the way :)
