Dr. Mark Taylor

I grew up in a small town in South Carolina and relocated to a slightly bigger town in Alabama. I enjoy problem-solving and fixing things in creative ways. I worked hard learning various skills in the military, oilfield, transportation and logistics, and many other industries. Through my working experience, I noticed many businesses have multiple common problems. I started to pursue degrees with majors in International Business, Operations and Supply Chain, and Organizational Development and Change. Coupled with my management experiences and in-depth hands-on knowledge of many industries I wanted to take on the challenge of innovative solutions to improve businesses, people, and communities for the future.

When not working on creating various businesses, problem-solving, and guiding others to successful solutions I can be found relaxing. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my children, creating new ventures with my wife, and fishing.

I am a talkative and charismatic person with a great sense of humor. I am blunt and straightforward, but my humor makes it easier to absorb what I am trying to teach and advise upon.

I like motivating, encouraging, and helping to develop a purpose in those around me so they can be successful and take pride in what they do.  I have principles that I will not betray, and I have values that I will not waver from; This can make it difficult for some people to influence me. However, despite this, I am open-minded, and I do take into consideration many thoughts and opinions.

I hope that I can influence businesses and people in a positive way and give them a better future.


Lynn Taylor

My ambition is to be the most known woman in the business world one day. In the meantime, I am busy helping to run all of the Big & Small businesses, planning and developing various projects, helping others succeed in their goals, brainstorming, researching, and constantly writing. I go by Lynn (or “Mom!” – I think I nearly forgot my name by now). I was born and raised in Florida. After traveling around the U.S., I relocated to Alabama from South Carolina because I got blinded by all the beautiful green nature.

Even though I am responsible for collaborating with the owner and overseeing all of the business matters of Big & Small, I am still a nerd inside. When not working, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, learning about history, discovering weird, obscure, and useless knowledge, and reminiscing on having time to play D&D and video games.

My background is varied through my college studies, industry experiences, and helping my husband with his business proposals and projects. Remember, behind every successful man is a woman kicking him in the butt; my foot is getting a lot of practice kicking! My husband’s successes are built because of a promise he made his dad right before he passed away. I make sure he is fulfilling that promise because an example needs to be set for our kids to have integrity, responsibility, and honor.

My no-nonsense, stern but fair, with a splash of southern hospitality personality comes in handy around here; it helps keep the mutiny at bay and keeps the ship sailing toward the horizon.
