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

Hi Tae, what do you think makes you most happy? Why?
Honestly, being accountable for me is what makes me happy! You often cannot control the life you were given, but you sure can alter the life that will come. I get a sense of joy knowing that I have the power to shape what I want my future legacy to look like, starting now. It’s similar to an author picking up a pen and notepad to write chapter one of their book and it later turns into a best-seller novel. I apply that same rule to me.

Everyday I am creating new chapters in my life whether it’s improving my spiritual and physical health, interacting with clients, or conversing with like-minded people. All of those things make me happy.

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?
Driven Professionals Career Services is an online career center. The role is to help jobseekers land the job of their choice with career-related services such as resume writing.  My professional brand stemmed from rarely seeing any job services locally. I wanted to change that.  It’s important to think BIG. How can one small idea turn into something more? I maintained that mindset and it allowed my business to become a credible source for jobseekers nationwide.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Firstly, I will say that I am simple. I love a good ole’ double double burger with chopped chili peppers from the LAX In & Out Burgers. If you want to take it up a notch, I suggest any cantina place with Mexican cuisine like Te’Kila, Cabo Cantina, King & Queens Cantina . After you get your grub on, you may want to get a little jog in! I would recommend going to places with nice scenic views. The places to exercise are Culver City Stairs, Valley Ridge Hill, and Runyon Canyon Park.  These places have the best views and it helps with physical and mental clarity.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to shed light on a specific love one who exemplifies leadership and creativity, Ai P. Nilson. Relative, Ai P. Nilson is a professional artist and jewelry designer who is known for her handcrafting Abstract décor and jewelry, which can be found at abstractearrings.com. To be honest I did not know if I was ever capable of creating my own anything. I was never a “hands-on” person. It took years for me to discover my true passion and talent until I paid close attention to her. Ai showed me the importance of thinking outside of the box while maintaining individuality and peace. She is one of the few muses who inspired me to create my own business venture – Driven Professional Career Services, which was a life changing experience for me. I appreciate her.
