BEHIND the BRAND with Megan Minns of MeganMinns.com & Online Business Manager for Femtrepreneur.co
What's the inspiration behind MeganMinns.com and what's the mission for your website?
My entrepreneurial journey officially started in 2014 when I started taking my first design clients. But it really started 15 years before then, when I designed my first website. I started from scratch. I knew nothing. But thanks to a simple website that taught me HTML, I started to learn how to build my own websites. It was a hobby that I played with throughout middle school and high school. In college, blogging became popular and I started an organizing blog in 2011. I loved customizing my blog. I spent countless hours designing and coding my blog... so much that I think I only published a handful of blog posts. I had no clue what I was doing when it came to actually writing helpful content. But I was sucked in by the tech side of it. By 2014, it became clear that people could actually build a business from their blog. I realized custom blog design was a thing and that I could do that too! I wasn't loving full-time work. I had a great job in Human Resources but felt frustrated by the lack of control. I didn't like getting in trouble for being 5 minutes late. The internal politics drove my mad. And exhausting myself at my full-time job, meant following my passion was harder and harder. So in 2014, I officially started offering custom branding and design services. I got clients quickly and loved every minute of it.
