As you know, I find a lot of people to interview for Brave Women at Work either in my personal network or via LinkedIn. Megan Witherspoon, my guest today, is no exception. The interesting thing about Megan is that she is similar to you listening to the show. She doesn’t have a book or a business. She’s still working a “normal” 9-to-5 job. She’s a working mom.
The one big difference is that she made a decision within the last year to give back by creating an online platform via LinkedIn. Her purpose with this platform is to further the conversation about work-life flexibility.
Megan posts at least 1 time per day and receives many likes and comments. In fact, one of Megan’s posts garnered millions of views, almost 105,000 likes, and 2,257 comments! Apparently her thoughts on work-life flexibility resonated with people.
When I read that post, I knew that I had to meet Megan and hear her thoughts on this subject first hand.
Here’s more about Megan:
