ABOUT HAYLEY TAYLOR

Hayley Taylor discovered her knack for passing along her expertise after experiencing firsthand the same challenges placed upon many of the families she helps. A hair-dresser turned stay-at-home mom, Taylor felt the financial and emotional strain on her family when her husband was laid off. Arguments and mounting debt ensued and she soon found herself losing her identity and self-confidence. Ultimately, Taylor decided to return to work by volunteering at a job training center. Her abilities in teaching and motivating people were quickly recognized, and within two months she was promoted to manager. Two years later, Taylor was approached to work for a company that specialized in training the unemployed, where she helped people overcome their professional barriers and move forward into gainful employment. Her training techniques and innovative methods caught the attention of the U.K.'s Channel 4, which included her in a three-part documentary series entitled Benefit Busters. Overnight, she became the talk of the nation and received an offer from the channel to host her own show, The Fairy Jobmother.
