Pervis Taylor

Pervis Taylor III’s purpose in life is to help men maximize their potential, master their emotions, and thrive in the lives of their dreams. As an award-winning celebrity life coach, inspirational speaker, mentor, and author, Pervis travels the nation delivering his uplifting message to crowds large and small. He has helped countless individuals achieve their goals, and is excited to see where his journey of self empowerment will take him next. Born in Dallas, TX, Pervis earned his Bachelor of Business degree from the University of Miami, then relocated to New York City to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. While he quickly found success as an actor and model, appearing in feature films, commercials, and print ads, Pervis always felt that he had a higher calling. After much soul searching, he realized that helping people was his true purpose in life. He began to compile the wisdom he had acquired into his first two books, ‘Pervis Principals 1 & 2,’ both of which became international best sellers. Pervis was especially encouraged to find that he had found a devoted audience of young men of color who connected with his progressive vision of masculinity and emotional intelligence. Gratified by the feeling that he was making a real difference, Pervis decided to devote his life to his new calling. Pervis set out to expand his reach, and soon found himself lending his expertise to the New York City Department of Education, as well as several colleges across the city. He was invited to take part in CUNY’s Black Male Initiative, and honored as a ‘BE Modern Man’ by Black Enterprise Magazine. His work has been featured on Fox, The Today Show, Daily Mail UK, and many more. While keeping up this tireless schedule, Pervis also found time to complete his Masters in Psychology from Columbia University, and write a new book called ‘Surthrvival Mode.’ Specifically aimed at men, the book expands on Pervis’ revolutionary views of emotions and mental health. Pervis currently resides in Brooklyn, NY, where he devotes every day to improving his own life and the lives of the people around him.
