Key Quotes:

  • “One of the things I’ve learned along the way is that we spend a lot of time and energy trying to be what we’re not. And when we really sit with and honor who we are, that’s when the magic happens.” – Meg McKeen
  • “I believe one of the greatest missed opportunities in our business is the relationship that we have with ourselves, and really the deep understanding of who we are and what we stand for. And how we want to show up in this business is something that we are not taught as professionals.” – Meg McKeen
  • “There are women who are craving more, more challenge, more opportunity, more money, but aren’t being presented with the opportunities to get there and I think that’s where we really get hung up. There are definitely plenty of people that are happy with the role that they have and don’t aspire for other things. But I think we need to focus on the ones who are on the move.” – Meg McKeen
