Jay Shetty talks to Taylor Tomlinson about why sometimes it’s okay to shift your focus on something else. Dropping out of college doesn’t really mean you’re wasting your time away. In some cases, people have found success and multiple achievements after they decided to pursue something else. These pivotal moments come and go in the most unexpected ways so we all need to learn how to spot them and seize the opportunity right away.
Taylor Tomlinson began performing comedy when she was 16, after her father signed her up for a stand-up class. She became a top 10 finalist on the 9th season of NBC's Last Comic Standing in 2015 and was named one of the top 10 comics to watch by Variety at the 2019 Just For Laughs festival. Her first Netflix standup special, Quarter-Life Crisis, premiered in March, 2020. In 2021, she started her own podcast called Sad in the City and in the same year she was placed on the Forbes' 30 Under 30 list. Now her second standup special, Look at You, is now streaming on Netflix.
