We had the good fortune of connecting with Taysha Nacadia and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Taysha, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Growing up I was lucky enough to know my great-grandfather who was a two time business owner. At the time I didn’t understand the value of what it meant to run your own business, however this was learned once my father inherited one. From that moment on I was able to not only witness the journey of owning a business, but more importantly the significance of creating generational wealth.
Within the black community generational wealth is not as common as it is within other races. Given my up bringing I was able to see what it means to live in a low income community and how inheritance combined with hard work, determination and passion can help you curate a life of financial knowledge & freedom.
When I created my company, the editor, I did it with my great-grandfather on my mind. I did it with generational wealth as my purpose. I did it so that my future children will have an automatic stepping stone and something of value from birth. I did it to add another Black-Owned business to the playing field. I did it so that my race, my gender and my family can have a seat at the table.
Home Organization by the editor may not be my family’s legacy, but it will certainly be a means of creating generational wealth for them.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
In a world where the outdoors seem so chaotic, I strive to make every clients home their serenity. At the editor our goal is to edit the things you don’t need (clutter) to give you the physical and emotional space to curate an aesthetic you’ve always craved.
Business has been tough due to the pandemic, but I’m super excited to help clients regain some form of normalcy within their homes. What I’ve learned so far is to not limit your business’ potential. Originally my client list was predominantly Celebrity driven, however as of lately the Mom Groups have taken over!
the editor, is a small home organization business that hopes to bring mental relaxation to each client by way of functional organization systems.
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’m originally from the East Coast, so I have tons of family and friends that visit me throughout the year! I never let them leave without hiking to the Top of Topanga Overlook, followed by Malibu Farm for brunch. Being that Hollywood is such a famous area in LA we drive through the Hollywood Walk of Fame and have dinner and drinks at Katana. And of course you have to put your feet in the Pacific Ocean, so a beach day is a must with a bike ride from the Santa Monica pier to Venice! East coast friends and family get a kick out of seeing how free spirited the Venice beach community is – this is where I encourage them to let their hair down and join the drum circle on the sand 🙂 Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to give a shoutout to my great-grandfather, George Clue, for paving the way. To my father, Edward Carroll, for offering his knowledge and wisdom. To my mother, Venas Matthews-Bazin, for the constant support and encouragement. I couldn’t do it without you guys!
