Today I had the pleasure of speaking with singer, songwriter, author and entrepreneur, Sarah Taylor. Growing up in Texas there was never a time in Sarah’s life when she didn’t want to sing and entertain people. When she was older she moved to Nashville in pursuit of all things music and creative - only to face struggle after struggle. Sarah realized her worth through the power of changing her attitude and perception and was able to push through to become the outstanding woman she is today.
