For today’s National Women’s Business Week feature, we’d like to recognize the talents of Taylor Ulfstam! Taylor is the General Manager of Prose Nails, Denver South, and is another shining example of what a woman in business can and should be. Here’s a bit about what makes Taylor the successful business woman that she is today:

Being able to assist with the growth of PROSE Nails through the coaching and development of our incredible team, is the most fulfilling job.
I love being able to help my coworkers achieve their goals in business and in life. I truly feel that we are able to affect people’s lives everyday for the better, through honesty and open communication.
I enjoy using the skills I have developed throughout my years as a strong leader, to encourage and motivate our team by growing together as one. Being able to build each other up and celebrating achievements makes coming to work everyday exciting.

Choosing a career in business is rewarding because I can see tangible development in financial growth, customer satisfaction and team achievements.
I focused on a career in business in hopes that one day I would work for a company like PROSE Nails that believes in me as much as I believe in them.
I like being a business woman because it allows me to set financial and development goals for the business and individuals. I enjoy creating a plan of action that is designed to motivate and inspire my team to go above and beyond their own expectations.

I was very lucky earlier in my career to have attended a business course that was focused on servant-leadership. I had heard this term before, but did not have a clear understanding of what it truly meant. After diving into what servant leadership is and how to apply it to business and day to day life, it changed everything for me. As a servant-leader, I believe that when I lead by example my team members feel personally and professionally engaged. Team satisfaction creates an atmosphere of collaboration, which leads to higher productivity and a feeling of personal and professional fulfilment. Being a business woman allows me to be a part of an organization that creates an atmosphere of mutual respect, appreciation and builds employee morale.

Throughout my professional life, I have always felt it was important to plan strategic career choices. Being highly motivated to learn a business from the ground up, has opened opportunities for career growth and molded me into the successful business woman I am today. The measurement of success for a business woman is not just financial or accomplished from 9am-5pm. It’s about who you are as a person, your character, your ambition and your motivation for why you do what you do. It’s a 24/7 lifestyle. When you work for a company whose mission and values mirror your own, it sets you up for a successful partnership to achieve personal and company goals.

As women, we are naturally very caring and nurturing. This means that we have something extra to bring to a business, because we can connect on a deeper and more personal level with our team members. Being a woman in business allows me to use my talents to mentor and educate other women on how to grow a successful career in whatever path they choose. Having a successful business career allows women to be financially independent and proud of their accomplishments.
