Being placed in an incomparable situation, Markela took a leap of faith and opened her own insurance company. Not only did Markela open an insurance company, but she also launched a bed-and-breakfast in New York. Markela’s past entrepreneurial ventures aided her development of The Marké, which is the event facility connected to Universal Salon Suites. DSC_8412The Marké will serve as a premier facility to host events in downtown Atlanta. The Taylor sisters are currently working on a reality show called, “Life on the Marké” and they’re also in progress of expanding Universal Salon Suites to LA. As young business owners, Markela and Markeisha are making a distinctive mark in entrepreneurship.DSC_8370The event commenced at 6:00pm, where the event sponsors, stars, socialites and influencers stopped to get some photos on the red carpet. Following the red carpet, event attendees entered The Marké where they were able to view the event space and get a grand tour of one of the completed salon suites. After viewing the salon suite, attendees enjoyed a performance by the religious hip-hop group, Faith Gang. Shortly after, Demetria McKinney hit the stage performing a medley of some of music’s greatest hits, “Can’t Nobody” by Chaka Khan and “Rock The Boat” by Aaliyah; and she ended her performance with her latest single, “Trade It All”. The night ended with everyone mixing, mingling and enjoying great music complimented by delicious h’orderves.
