We had the good fortune of connecting with Meghan Temple and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Meghan, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind success or life in general, I believe, is just being real & 100% honest with yourself or wherever it is you’re doing. We get so caught up in the hype of what everyone else is doing that we forget to pat ourselves on the back. Being a small business owner is not for the weak. You have to be determined & have an idea/outline of where/what you are trying to do. The best advice that I can offer other SBO’s is to get out and get active in your community’s. We want our businesses to blow up and be successful right away that we tend to solely focus on social & marketing, but how can you expect to hit the numbers/goals you have for yourself when no one knows who you are? Get your name out in your community and surrounding areas first! Once I stopped solely relying on my content and products to sell themselves/I started doing the work, being more hands on, is when I saw an increase in my numbers. Do those pop up shops, go to the mall on weekends and pass out your business cards, air drop your work while at the grocery store, all of these things will add up I promise!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
This is probably the hardest question of the whole interview because anyone who knows me, and knows me well, knows that I am a homebody. I really only get out of the house when I go out of town for vacation. I would say I would bring them to some restaurants known in HTX, but whenever I go to those places the service is typically awful. I much rather to cook them a nice New Orleanian home cooked meal and we can watch Big Momma’s House after on my projector. All while snuggling with the cutest German Shepard ever, Endymion. Sound like a plan?
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to the old version of myself. The one who dealt with doubt, the one who smiled when no one knew she was suffering, the one who managed to get up everyday & continue to push, to the one who is forever changing & growing. I am thankful. Without the storm I’ve been through I would’ve never been able to see the sun today. Here’s to doing what everyone thought you couldn’t. You did it (:
