In this episode Meg Wheeler and Heather chat about her journey as an entrepreneur and the experience of create a business as a Mother and Daughter team. Meg shares her passion for supporting women and the mission of One for Women.
“Make sure you really understand your why and once you get that every opportunity will be looked at through that lens. Once you get in that mindset anytime an opportunity comes your way you’ll be more open to it and be able to evaluate under that lens of: Does it fulfill my mission? Is it inline with my vision?” – Meg Wheeler
