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

Hi Lexi, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
You need to be internal connected with a purpose of change and enlightenment, that others want to be part of and feel. Ideas that change the societal norms and bend the rules of structured business and thought. People want to be inspired with an idea a brand, an identity, an experience. It takes time you to need to listen to yourself, be kind to yourself, travel, be alone with your own thoughts, observe how others interact with others for change. Others gravitate to positive enlightenment and happiness. If a brand can bring that change to inspire the inner self, and up lift the soul, others want that feeling, its infectious. You create ideas from personal experience that have changed your core. I want others to feel that experience to be the best version of themselves. That’s what business brand should represent not just hard work, its needs soul to thrive, purpose, inspiration, and a deeper connections to oneself .

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Life is art, the body is art, life is full of romantic interactions and thoughts, combined with mechanical structure and control. It’s a delicate balance to tap into those thoughts of reasoning. It’s the expression and understanding of my internal being of my male identity and my female identify. I express and show the world the beauty, sexiness, confidence, and intelligent of transgender women. I share to the world of how I connected truthful to higher power of awareness to the world physically, romantically, and spiritually. I create content to inspire others to be the greatest versions of themselves, to reach your highest potential to unlock your greatest gifts to share the world. If I can use my voice and beauty for power of change, then I’ve open other hearts and souls to the beautiful colors of life. The struggle of sorrow, loss, change, understanding, acceptance, is never easy, its the battles of life that provides wisdom for growth to a higher power of peace. Once you listen to your inner core of being you set yourself free. Express your color use your pallet to spread love, joy, and brightness to others.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
That’s easy I would share all the beautiful spots throughout California on a road trip up the coast from Los Angeles to San Francisco. We would visit all the spots that I have lived and called home they are unique and special in their own way, just like myself, eccentric. I prefer traveling in a old VW surfer hippie bus that has soul and personality. Live the pure simple holistic life of California, get connected to its roots and grit. Interconnect with the soul of the locales, smell the ocean, hear the music, feel the wind in your hair, see the beautiful redwoods of Big Sur, and feel the California sun on your face. Be inspired by the beauty of wild places, and the peace and love California represent.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Their is so many that have touched my soul during my life, and the in-depth travels of finding my true self. I wish I could name them all. These simple interactions have turned into long term friendship, and encouragement for success. These friends stretch from the Southern States, Midwest, Southwest, Northwest, all over California, and even the world. I connect to pure good souls that see the beautiful side of the struggle, hardships, and the passion of my core beliefs that uplift me. They are my supporters, cheerleaders in my corner pushing me to change the world. They know who they are, and I love all of them for their gracious open arms of love and support. My family always wants to see me be the highest power of myself, and purely be happy, I deeply love all of them. I’ve read many of books from the beat generation for expansion beyond the core soul of themself. Authors like Jake Kerouac “Drama Bums”, Williams S. Burroughs “Naked Lunch”, and John Muir’s spiritual connections to wild places. I would gravitate to philosophers, like Allen Watts “The Book”, Daniel Quinn “Ishmael”, and Robert M. Pirsig “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.” Music always uplifts the soul and the mind, I will also turn the my purest connection “Pink Floyd” and “The Beatles”. Life is art, open up your eyes and mind to a world beyond yourself, it’s a beautiful thing. Love always shines through.
