We designed this series to, not only showcase our community of amazing women entrepreneurs, but to also share their best tips, strategies and insights for wanna-be and established women entrepreneurs. Our mission for this community is to bring an incredible group of women together to inspire, motivate, and support women in business by networking, collaborating, and, in the case of this spotlight series, showing you why they shine so brightly!
This week I am happy to share my wonderful interview with Taylor Louie, Co-Founder of Skill Addiction.
In this interview, Taylor shares…
- Why it is so important to be completely honest with yourself about your strengths,
- How you can boost the success and growth of your company by interacting directly with your customers,
- Her business model and how it differs so much from gaming,
- And what it has been like being a woman in the male dominated industries of tech and gaming.
You won’t be able to miss Taylor’s passion for what she does, and the joy of getting to literally play video games for a living. Enjoy!

Taylor Louie, a Silicon Valley native, grew up with a steady diet of Super Mario and parental instruction to pick a career based on passion, not money. As someone who has always forged her own path, and never really taken the traditional route, she didn’t surprise very many people when she decided that she would take the startup world head on, rather than take an entry level position on a corporate ladder.
Taylor is currently working as the Co-Founder of SkillAddiction, a skill gaming website that provides the tournament platform for players to connect and compete in casual games in tournament-style play for cash, virtual currency, and merchandise prizes. The website is a hybrid of a casual gaming portal, a social game, and a casino operator – it has the reward of a social game and the chance to win real cash and prizes playing casual games, without any gambling.
After graduating from Syracuse University in December, Taylor moved back out to the Bay Area with her business partner to take advantage of the wealth of resources for tech entrepreneurs in the San Francisco area. Connect with Taylor on Twitter @t_louie or @SkillAddiction.
