Taylor Bottom is a Utah native and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Business Finance. Taylor originally wanted to become an engineer but found a passion in financial advising while working his way through college. As a true entrepreneur, Taylor started his own door-knocking company, setting appointments for other financial advisors. It was then that he learned the important value of compound interest and decided to change career paths to become an advisor himself. Taylor wanted to join Waddell & Reed specifically because of it's more comprehensive approach and Financial Planning Process.
He attributes all his success to building and developing relationships. He actually prioritizes his social life around networking and has met many clients from Uber rides. During business hours, he manages his time by networking with employee benefit brokers, risk management brokers, and payroll providers. By doing so, he has built quite a niche, particularly around group retirement planning and comprehensive financial planning.
Although Taylor is actively working with clients during many hours of the day, he does make time to pursue his passions and hobbies. He loves surfing, snowboarding, golfing and camping. Taylor grew up with competitive snowboarders. When his friends were beginning to make careers out of their enjoyment for winter sports, Taylor was finding his calling in financial planning. It was then that Taylor found a new passion for surfing. He has traveled to many beautiful locations to surf, including Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Mexico. His all-time favorite location to surf and vacation is in Punta De Mita, Mexico. He has also been to the Greek Islands, Turkey, and Paris.
Taylor married the love of his life, Angie, on August 2018 in Utah’s stunning Uinta Mountains. Taylor couldn’t be more proud of his wife as she graduated from nursing school and was immediately hired at Intermountain Health Care. Together they enjoy the outdoors and spending time with their adorable cockapoo, Ronin. They can’t wait to begin the next chapter of their lives together and continue on their path towards success.
