We had the good fortune of connecting with Taylor de la Fuente and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Taylor, can you tell us about a book that has had a meaningful impact on you?
I’m not a particularly woo-woo person, so I don’t say this lightly, but reading “Essentialism” by Greg McKeown has changed my life. The concept is about having/doing less, but better, which is a revolutionary thought in our capitalist society and overall age of consumerism. Using his principles, I’ve been able to more clearly make decisions that will lead to a life that’s full of joy instead of stuff.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
The thing that makes my work unique is quite simple: it’s me. Sure, I employ lots of strategies to make Lemon Tree Editorial stand out from the competition (I’m a professionally trained writer; my process takes two weeks or less; I work exclusively in the wedding industry)… But copywriting is an art, in that I’m creating something out of nothing when I write for my clients, and therefore no one can do it the way I can. I take inspiration from books, music, movies, fine art, world cultures, and my clients themselves to write copy that will capture the hearts of engaged couples and compel them to reach out.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The Bishop Arts District is by far the most interesting part of Dallas, which is why I chose it for my home. I’d recommend everyone spend at least a day (if not a week!) exploring the gorgeous murals, tasting the food, and shopping at the boutiques. A perfect day in Dallas, for me, would start with a donut and coffee at The Salty Donut before popping in Good Cycle, DLM, All Good Things, and other Oak Cliff boutiques for some shopping. Next, grab a delicious lunch at Taco Y Vino (I recommend the nopales tacos and jalapeño artichoke dip) and head to Reveler’s Hall for some amazing live music and a cocktail. I’d end the day with the dairy-free ice cream at Melt.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Every great woman is held up by so many other women. One woman who has especially impacted my entrepreneurial journey is Winn Clark, my business coach. She’s the one who helped me realize I wanted to start my business in the first place, and her ongoing generosity and wisdom have helped me grow this business quickly and confidently.
