Today we’d like to introduce you to Taeler Buchanan.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Taeler. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Like most, I was struggling to find my purpose in life. A maternal figure reminded me of my passion for writing and suggested that I pursue it more. And just like that, I dived right in. I searched online for creative writing groups and classes in Houston and attended a writer’s circle hosted by Writespace Houston. At the end of the workshop, the entire group was challenged to come up with an idea that would keep us emerged in the arts. With that challenge, the vision for Cre8tive Collective was born.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Well, I think anything worth having will pretty much guarantee a few struggles along the way. Gaining genuine support and proper exposure were the first challenges I encountered when I set out to build Cre8tive Collective from an idea to reality. A few setbacks from the destruction of Hurricane Harvey held us back from our initial launch date but I kept pushing and we were able to hold our official Houston launch in November 2017.
We’d love to hear more about your business.

What were you like growing up?
From a really young age, I fell in love with reading. You can ask anyone who grew up with me and they’ll tell you little Taeler ALWAYS had her nose in a book. I loved escaping into new worlds… experiencing different realities. It wasn’t very “cool” to read when I was younger. I remember always defending the reason why I’d rather stay in the house than go outside with my sisters and the other neighborhood kids. I didn’t care too much though. To me, there was absolutely nothing better than curling up with a good book.
