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! I also own a food blog (with a focus on snacks & desserts): SemiSweet Bites.
When I’m not working on my shop or blogs, 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.
