We had the good fortune of connecting with Lilly Talavera and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lilly, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The most important lesson my business has taught me is that when you choose to do things less conventionally, you are taking greater risks in life. I think life should be a great journey in which you have no idea what life will bring to you. When I look back on even just the last 5 years of my life, it has completely changed. I want to encourage those with experiences to share them with the world, even if your experience was something you’d rather forget or the best experience of your life. I want to encourage people to do something out of their element. I think writing is a way to document and record your life at a certain moment and to teach those that are not yet there. Choosing an eccentric business career and learning from your experiences is like experiencing a chapter in your book. A business career such as creating a start-up, being an entrepreneur, an author, or an inventor may take you through life’s many hills and valleys more frequently, but for some people that enjoy those highs and can get through those lows coming out better than before, I believe it’s worth it.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I hope to set an example for women in business.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would recommend the Uptown area, North Dallas, and Frisco.
