Q & A with Megan
What's your life motto?
I never lose; either I win or I learn. An imperfect action beats perfect inaction.
Why do you love photography?
I get to show people that they are beautiful, they are loved, and they are worthy.
What did you want to be as a kid when you grew up?
First female president and/or pope.
What was one of the defining moments in your career?
Speaking at Imaging USA for the first time. Five years prior, I sat in the audience watching a platform speaker in awe. I said to myself, “What would it take to reach that level of success?” Then I nudged my friends and said, “Someday I’m going to speak.” Over the years that followed, I crafted my business around service and sales success and made my mark. Anyone wishing to thrive in this business can make that dream come true.
Who has been one of the biggest influences of your work?
Steve Jobs and Marcus Lemonis. I take great pride in my business skills. My work in the sales room is the art I work hardest to perfect.
What was your experience like with your very *first* client AND what did you learn from it?
My first client ever paid me a “whopping” $70 for a complete session with digitals. I learned pretty darn quick that wasn’t gonna pay the bills. Within a year, I climbed from $70 for digitals to $2500 for digitals. And these days, clients pay up to $20,000 for digitals, and we’re all still smiling! Biggest takeaway: People will pay for what they value.
In the magical world of Harry Potter, if the Sorting Hat placed you into a house at Hogwarts, which would it be?
