Hey there, I’m Taylor!

In 2017, I started my first small business: SilverFire Books, an independent online bookstore. I launched my shop on Instagram, and it grew from there into a Shopify store.

In 2018, I started building this blog (Small Biz Refined) to help others turn their own biz dreams into a reality.

Since then, I’ve created & launched 5+ digital products (ebooks, courses, printables, etc.). I’m all about diversifying your income and taking back your time!

After moving from Seattle, WA to Austin, TX in late 2019, I transitioned SilverFire Books into Reader Haven, a book blog and bookish digital product shop. Sometimes, life throws you curve balls and you have to learn to roll with it!

When I’m not working on my shop or blog, you can probably find me curled up with a book and a cup of tea. I also love dogs, exploring the outdoors, and travel.

Oh, and I have a wicked sweet tooth. I firmly believe chocolate is its own food group.

How can I help you?

Ever since I started my first business, I’ve been entranced by the dynamic world of digital marketing.

(I’m a multi-passionate person, and I love getting to use both the creative & analytical sides of my brain!)

So I built Small Biz Refined to help online shop owners & creative entrepreneurs thrive.

I’ve learned so much from growing my small business, and I want to share the best strategies I’ve found with you.


Because I believe that anyone who has the drive and desire to build their own business should have that opportunity. It’s the best feeling in the world to take a dream and build and nurture it into something real.
