All About You: @heyitsmegan

Megan writes a weekly social media column for Silicon Bayou News, "Conversations with Megan"

Many of you are already checked out for the Thanksgiving holiday this week so we’re going to keep the All About You fresh & feisty with one of our most popular columnists, @heyitsmegan.

Megan moved to New Orleans a few years ago from Lafayette, “To meet interesting, young, hip people to be inspired by.” Previously a community manager for Launch Pad, Megan now runs her own highly successful social media business, Conversations, LLC. She’s also an avid yoga practitioner and day-drinking connoisseur.

What is the most exciting thing you are working on right now? 

Bringing on a partner and really making everything super legit within my company…I didn’t go to business school or anything so starting a business is an ever changing, huge and exciting challenge.

Tell us about your biggest failure. 

My career as a broadcast journalist. There may still be clips online where you can witness the failure first hand.

IYO, which institution is most due for disruption?

Marriage/ Family life

What is your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?

Drink wine on the patio with my girlfriend and our dog Jojo, enjoying the weather!

If you were stuck on an elevator for two hours, what one person (dead or alive) would you choose to be stuck with?

This question really encourages me to take the stairs more often. IMAGINE being stuck in an elevator for TWO hours!

If you had to pick a drink to describe yourself (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) what would it be? 

Gin Martini; dirty.

If you wrote a regular column for Silicon Bayou News what would it be about and what would you name it?

I think it’d be called “Conversations with Megan” 😉

Megan is an iphone-in-hand kinda gal, pictured here in California wine country in the Spring of 2011.
