PA2016_0137Since there are a hundred people named Paul Taylor in this world I will differentiate my self by giving you my whole name, Paul Elderwith Taylor III.

First and foremost I am a father. My daughter means the whole world to me. I am a resident of Elizabethton, Tennessee but am originally from the Finger Lakes Region of New York. My passion lies encouraging others and assisting where I can in helping them achieve their goals and dreams.


I am an Alumni of Northeast State Community College where I received my Associates Degree in three disciplines; Mass Communication (Advertising and PublPA2016_0351ic Relations), Speech Communication, and Sociology. I am currently a student at East Tennessee State University where I am a Public Relations major and Sociology Minor.

I am an accredited public speaker through Toastmasters International. I have experience in business networking and promotional services and have also spent time as a Realtor and in the public utility sector. I currently own and operate two businesses; a lawn renovation company and a marketing and promotional services company specializing in small start-up companies.


As you may or may not have noticed there is a theme to my blogs. I routinely think about a variety of things and on a variety of topics. Therefore I have tried to design this blog page to reflect the real me. There are three main categories regarding my blogs; action, inspiration, and thoughts. My “action” blogs are things I think we as a society should take action on. Maybe they are behaviors I think we should adopt or concepts we should internalize. My “inspiration” blogs are words of encouragement. I enjoy helping others feel confident and find the value within themselves. My “thought” blogs are just that. They are completely random thoughts which materialize in my mind from the influences of everything and everyone around me. Sometimes they are an elaboration of something I have read while other times they are a adaptation of a concept into an entirely new arena.

I appreciate having wild and random thoughts and hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
