Megan was featured as the Hatch Tribe Hero of the month! Check out a bit of her interview below, and read the full article here.
What is your favorite part of being an entrepreneur?
The excitement I feel every morning wondering what my day will bring (and on the less comfortable side of that gift, the continual opportunity for practice in sitting with uncertainty). Also, only setting an alarm when I need to catch an early flight.
What keeps you up at night?
Death anxiety and dating in New York. Also the actual dating part, not just the overthinking about it.
What ignited the spark in you to start your business?
I half-joke it was equal parts narcissism and idealism, with a splash of necessity and aversion to authority. I remember my soccer coach saying, “Megan, this is a dictatorship, not a democracy!” because I thought my coaching advice—at eight-years-old—was more valuable than his! I also refused to take piano lessons unless I could compose my own piece for recitals. Fifteen or so years later, I started a private practice and a blog when I couldn’t get a full-time job after my masters; then four years after that, I started my business in New York after I realized that the well-paying marketing job I had wasn’t creating the impact I’d moved here to make.
