Margo has a conversation with artist, metalsmith, teacher, creative business coach, writer, and entrepreneur, Megan Auman. Megan has built a multi-faceted business around her passion for art, design, and creativity and in addition to her eponymous jewelry line and various other creative pursuits (including textile design, painting, and sculpture), she runs Designing an MBA, where she talks and teaches about the intersection of art and business, and Artists and Profit Makers, an online mentorship program for creative business owners. She is the author of Try It & See: How to Get Sh*t Done While Overanalyzing Everything, which is her answer to the question of "how do you get so much done?" She believes in the power of art & craft to enhance our everyday lives.


Margo and Megan discuss:

  • Why it’s important to get comfortable with asking people for money
  • Minimum viable product
  • Learning opportunities versus failures
  • Giving yourself permission to explore other revenue streams and new creative mediums
  • Normalizing NOT monetizing all hobbies
  • Understanding that every business is different and how she teaches and coaches to that
  • Why she things organization is overrated
  • Getting inspired in the new year
  • Her book, Try It & See: How to Get Sh*t Done While Overanalyzing Everything
  • Lazy marketing tactics (why social media is a lottery and not a business strategy)
  • And more!
