My Work…

I’ve always loved to talk. One of my earliest memories is all my siblings bribing me a quarter to stay quiet during a long road trip.

As I got older and learned to write, I figured out that the written word is just another way to make conversation, and I basically never stopped. The typing class I took in tenth grade may have been the most useful course of my life.

These days, I spend a lot of time communicating as a profession, whether via public speaking, coaching, developing editorial strategies or creating content.

To hire me or ask about what kind of work I can do for you, drop me a note.

My Life…

I live in St. Joseph, Michigan (about 90 miles from Chicago) with my husband and five kids, four boys and a girl ages 6-18. They’re pretty cute.

When I’m not writing or helping with homework, I love reading (especially re-reading my favorite books from childhood,) scouring antique malls, frequenting piano bars, puttering around the kitchen, and folding laundry. (Yes…I’m serious about that last one!)

Thanks for reading, and feel free to email if you have any questions!

    Hi,
    I have two boys (2&3) and am trying to figure out if we are going to/should expand our family. I’m 35 so for me I also feel like this is a now or never situation. I’m actually quite content with my current family, that is till the hundredth person asks me if I’m going to go for a girl! Then I start thinking am I missing something not being a mom to a daughter? I mean sure I’d also love to have a girl as well but as far as I know I’m not able to pick the sex of my kids so who’s to say I’m even going to have a girl. I also am against having an odd number of children so it’s either the two we have, or add two more to the mix. Im nervous about the challanges that will vone along with it, financially but also emotionally- how do you divide your time between so many people? Question is, do I go for the girl?

  • Hi Meagan,

    I had the pleasure of listening to your interview on Pat Flynn’s SPI podcast and I really resonated with many of the things that you had talked about. I was encouraged when you said that just because you happen to be a Mom that blogs, that your blogs don’t necessarily have to be about what your kids did that day, etc.

    Thank you for being so encouraging on your interview.

    Be Blessed,
    Annett

  • I just want to say that your site is awesome. One in particular touched me to the core, very personal, and its good to connect to someone else who knows just what I am experiencing. I’ve nominated your site for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. 🙂
    Cheers,

  • Meagan, I absolutely love your posts; so inspiring, heartfelt, fun and honest! I’m a fellow michigander (Detroit Girl) in Chicago…I pass your stomping ground all the time on our road trips to visit the fam. We will wave next time we pass the St. Joseph exit! 🙂 Lisa
