Designer. Author. Omaha. Off-Script.
I started my career working as a wedding designer, creating dresses and bouquets for hundreds of brides each year. After being in the wedding industry for years, I realized that my real interest was more on the business side than the design side and started sharing my experiences as a small business owner in books and speaking gigs around the country. As I was transitioning from the business of helping people get married, I started a coworking space in my hometown, which I closed a few years later to co-found a womenswear e-commerce startup that remains my main focus today. I am always doing things I feel passionate about, or am excited to be involved in, which has made for a very interesting and fulfilling life.
My interests as they relate to my work include community-building in my city that I love, developing our local entrepreneur and creative class, and calling out the need to change the ratio of women in business. My interests as they relate to my life include dancing, rearranging the furniture in my adorable apartment, pricing plane tickets, planning parties, and consuming desserts.
This life and my career have been completely organic and serendipitous thus far. I like to take opportunities when they present themselves, and I trust my own judgment. I like to write, and I love to work (and overwork). I love to take risks. I like to feel busy. I like to share everything—what I learn, what I write, what I think. I’m sort of intense, ambitious, passionate about civil activism, and I’m learning all the time.

“I’ve had the good fortune of both speaking with, and listing to Megan speak on many occasions, and it’s always a pleasure. Sometimes serious, sometimes feisty, sometimes funny“ but always passionate. Hers is an incredible story of starting, personal branding and creativity, and her love of her work, friends, family and community shine through.”

“Think of your fondest, most relaxed conversation with a good friend over coffee. Then add a little spunk to the story. That’s the unique and entertaining presentation style of Megan Hunt. Megan shares what she knows in a conversational style that is as refreshing as it is engaging. But more than talking about her own experiences, her passions, and her business, Megan love conversing with the audience just as much (if not more).”
“Megan is an endearing mix of ‘classy’, ‘candid’ and ‘fiesty’. The best connection to any audience goes through the gates of common ground; a little bit of humor, a dash of tell-it-like-it-is, but a base element of humility that allows the listener to approach, get closer and be attentive of their own choice because they can relate. Now wrap all of that in a brightly colored, pristinely styled package”topped with a spectacular, hand-crafted bow”and you may have just been gifted a little dose of Megan Hunt.”
