For this week’s feature I’m going to start off with a new blog series, which I have simply dubbed “The Greenville Professional”. Now, typically I do character based blogs, but this series will focus almost entirely on the individual and their personal and entrepreneurial story. These will be sneak peaks of a huge project that I've been working on, so stay tuned!
With this first feature I’m going to be a little bit more personal. I’d like to introduce you to my personal favorite Greenville Young Professional, my favorite GirlBoss, my favorite entrepreneur, Tiffany Elyse Anderson. Perhaps you’ve seen my talk about her a time or two on my social media or in my newsletters.
Tiffany was born in Orange County, California and moved to a small town in Mississippi just south of Memphis when she was less than a year old. This is where she spent all of her childhood. After high school she decided to attend The Evangelical Institute (EI) here in Greenville.
Of course, I’m super glad she did that, because that’s what I decided to do after high school as well. I met her in the sign up room back in 2010. She says she remembers what I was wearing.
She graduated EI in 2012 and went back to Mississippi, where she attended Blue Mountain College. In addition to that, it was in 2012 when we finally made the move from best friends to girlfriend/boyfriend.
She graduated with a Bachelors degree in 2015 and finally made her way back to Greenville later that year, where I had been the whole time. Long distance isn’t fun folks, but distance really does make the heart grow fonder.
Tiffany never really has had hard time finding a job. Employers want her almost immediately. In Mississippi she worked the front desk at a chiropractic office, as well as nannying for a family. One summer between semesters she worked for a hotel in Virginia Beach.
When she got to Greenville, it was no different, within a month of being here she had a full time gig as a nanny for a family here in the Upstate. She was able to rent a room from a local family in Taylors.
Finally, she was in Greenville and we didn’t have to rely on FaceTime to communicate. It wasn’t long after she got here that everything started to change. On the 6th of December in 2015 she said yes to being my wife. Why? I have no idea, but she did.
Incredibly, she was able to work her tail off for six months while also planning a wedding. Finally, after nearly 4 years of waiting, we got married on May 14th, 2016. Best day of my life, so far.
As 2016 came to a close she started to scratch the entrepreneurial itch. Tiffany been a writer for many, many years. She’s written dozens of short stories and has been working on a novel for a while now. Because of her love for writing, she started wondering how she could make a career out of it. So she dove head first into books about Copywriting.
Day after day she studied the art and philosophy behind copywriting and the ability to influence action with words. She started attending networking events and connecting with everyone she could.
By December she applied and got her LLC and started Tiffany Writes LLC.
Today Tiffany is still working full time as a nanny, but in every moment of her spare time she is writing blogs, newsletters, web copy, and more for business owners around Greenville and even the country. What was once her little side hustle is growing by the day and is closing in on being a second full time job.
So, there you have it, now you know why I have a “copywriting” tab on It’s Greenville’s navigation. I’m incredibly proud of Tiffany, beyond words that I could ever put in a blog. I’m a bit biased, but I think you should hire her if you’re not one for writing and need to get some quality content out for your business. You won't find anyone who will work harder for you than her.
I love you, Tiffany. Keep working hard, pursue your passion for writing, and never give up. I couldn’t be more proud of you. Thank you for everything you do, keeping me in line, always believing in me, loving me. I don’t think I could do life without you. I’m glad I get to go on adventures with you for the rest of our lives.
