Business Spotlight 2021
Top N Tier
Passionate, Confident, and Unique are a few adjectives to describe Taylor Turner. It's no surprise she found herself in the world of fashion. From an early age, Taylor was infatuated with the various styles, fits, and colors of the season's latest trends. At the beginning of her career, she quickly learned that first impressions were key to closing a sale. These first impressions only happened once, so Taylor had to always be on her "A" game. Realizing that one's personal image was the ultimate first impression, Taylor launched her business, Top N Tier, in order to help men and women feel confident and look their best for any occasion.

If someone offered to invest an undisclosed amount of money into you what story would you tell that will make them say “Yep, this is the right investment.” How would you get your message to emotionally connect to the investor?
Hi I'm Stefen Smith and I am a Storyteller, born in Ohio residing in Florida, I help businesses and nonprofits build connectedness through storytelling. I accomplish this with video production, graphic design, social media marketing, and email marketing. I also run a marketing agency called Seer Productions.
I was inspired to pursue storytelling because of movies and books I engaged with when I was a child. One of my favorite directors that convinced me to pursue this type of Art was Hype Williams. He is worth with a plethora of artists in the music industry as well as up-and-coming actors in Hollywood.
I believe that in order for you to be successful in business as well as life you have to unite with other individuals and assist them with their goals.
I also believe that connectedness is the new currency.
So if I asked you your story what would you tell me?

I have always had an eye for detail and a love to create. In 2016, after illness struck my body, the Lord removed me from a job I had been on for 13 years. Not sure of what to do...the Lord spoke and said, "use the gifts of your hands." In 2018 while attending my first vending event at a church conference, the Lord confirmed through two visiting missionaries from the Miami area God's plan for my next season. They asked to pray with me and begin to tell me what God spoke, which was to not fill out another job application and to focus on my businesses and writing my books. Only believing it meant returning back to doing custom gift baskets for clients and businesses. It has since grown into other areas such as graphic design, content creator, t-shirt designer and so much more.
In 2019, the Lord strongly begin to deal with me writing my book. In August of 2019, I begin the process with a book coach and by January of 2020, it was completed.
