We had the good fortune of connecting with Taryn Quinterri and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Taryn, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking has had an impact on my career in many ways. Without taking the risks I took I wouldn’t be where I am today, but also without taking some of the risks I wouldn’t have lost all the money I lost. The point is you have to take risks! You’ll win some, you’ll lose some, but the only regrets a person should have in life are the chances they didn’t take and the decisions they took too long to make.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
What sets me apart from others is that my work boosts/restores confidence. I am so blessed to be able to get paid to make people feel good. I got where I am today by working harder than the average American! I worked from 10-6 pm five or six days a week and then I would also work a night job from 9 pm to 2 am three or four nights a week for years and years!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to Forno 301 and Thai E San for dinner. I’d take them to a show at Walter Where House (yes that’s spelled correct). And of course I’d take them to Sedona!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are many people that have played a roll in my success. Companies that allowed me to be a distributor with a small initial purchase of inventory, simply because they saw my potential, such as Membrane Post Care Products. To companies that asked me to share my knowledge at world wide events such as Team Micro Ltd. Companies that have sponsored me such as Microbeau/FK Irons. And of course all of my friends/family and fans that have supported me in spirit along the way, and given me strength to never give up.
