COMEDIC CONTENT CREATOR & CHOREOGRAPHER
Now that she’s transferred coasts, Megan uploads videos every Wednesday on her YouTube channel and releases a new episode of her advice podcast Just a Tip every Friday so that her parents can feel like she still lives at home.
You’ve maybe seen Megan in Step Up Revolution, with World of Dance, teaching an online personality how to dance, or just wandering the candle aisle of a local Homegoods.
She loves the versatility of potatoes and hates writing in the third person. Critics are calling her probably something cutthroat and clinical with no regard to the fact she is sentient with hurtable feelings because that’s what a critic would do.
PERSONAL goals: compassion, caring enough for myself, work on my insecurities, learn something new everyday, read a book a month, travel more. BUSINESS goals: create a brand line of apparel and homegoods, write a book
Creating a business out of something I started for fun.
Learning how to balance work and personal life and realizing that they can intertwine on my own terms and that they don’t have to be in and of themselves.
Make what you would want to have/see/read/hear.
I’m inspired when my peers are pushing boundaries. Favorite people to listen to/watch are Conan O’Brien and Demetri Martin

How did you get into the industry?
I started posting dance videos on YouTube which turned into making personality-forward videos to help give people a break from their daily stresses. Now I’m uploading weekly to YouTube and also helping via my comedic advice podcast called Just a Tip.
Career advice to those in your industry?
Be authentic and consistent.
Any emerging industry trends?
I’m blissfully unaware of what other people are doing unless it’s ubiquitous in my subscription box and feeds. Right now, there isn’t anything but if you hear of something, feel free to circle back! Haha
Ideal experience for a customer/client?
If someone can feel like they’re being talked to as a person or understood on a human level, that’s all I can ask for. Even in my merchandise, I’ll have small details like a tag or a thank you postcard that lets anyone who receives it know that I see them as a person with needs, and that I am the same. It’s the small stuff that makes all the difference in the world. The first round of merchandise I ever made, I wrote everyone’s names in calligraphy and hand wrapped every hat and shirt. It was an immense amount of work but I think it’s equally important to have that careful intention regard- less if I’m hand-packing something or not.
How do you motivate others?
I’m big on positive affirmations. If there’s a note, I’ll always mention what was great about it, and upon completion, I’ll verbalize how good of a job was done.
