When I started my own consulting business, I did it with the intention of working with really good people; people who love what they do and do it well, while continuing to give back to their communities.
When I met Priya Tailor, co-owner of Facet Advisors Insurance Strategies, I knew she met this criteria. As an insurance and group benefits consultant, Priya shared her philosophy with me early on in our relationship: she is truly focused on the best interests of her clients. She works diligently at understanding her clients’ needs and develops solutions that make sense for them. She has helped countless individuals and families take care of themselves by offering valuable insurance programs, and she has helped organizations become more appealing to their current and future employees by developing group benefits program that check all of the boxes: flexible, useful, cost-effective.
And while it’s always fun to partner with someone so awesome at what she does, the awesomeness is simply compounded by Priya’s desire to give back. I recently learned that Priya and her family, including her 5 year old daughter, spend time on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, handing out homemade food to those less fortunate. She explains that her heart goes out to these people and that she feels called to do something, while also wanting to provide her daughter with lessons of compassion, generosity, and gratitude.
Feeling the desire to do even more, Priya is now joining members of EO Vancouver, the professional organization that she currently sponsors, for the Covenant House’s Sleep Out Movement. On Thursday, April 4th, Vancouver entrepreneurs will be sleeping on the streets in an effort to raise money and awareness about Vancouver’s growing homelessness problem. Rain or shine, Priya and EO Vancouver members will experience just a taste what many live through every day.
“We’re extremely fortunate to live the lives we do. In our day-to-day lives, it’s easy to take our blessings for granted. This is an opportunity to connect with the greater world - to get outside of our comfort zones and understand others’ realities. And to hopefully come together to make a difference in the lives of others.” Priya Tailor, Facet Advisors Insurance Strategies
