Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in marketing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Megan Lockhart, CEO of Megan Moore Marketing, located in Calgary, Canada.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I own and operate a marketing agency providing services to business owners who want to & need to increase their visibility online.

Tell us about yourself

I have been an entrepreneur for 6+ years now. I started teaching Pilates in my basement, quickly realized that having a storefront meant that I would have to be there 9-5, so I launched an online group program -- and after a few years, sold that. The sky is the limit when you are can sell from all and any platforms if you have a strategy and are clear. I am motivated to live an easier, more sustainable life. I do that by living in my tiny home full time, gardening, and focusing on joy every day. I'm thankful I started the small business in my basement six years ago!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is being able to see the companies we've worked with reach their sales goal. Not because of the money - but because it provides them the freedom to choose a lot more in life.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The hardest thing - balance. I would say this has become even harder since COVID-19. Toss in some kids, some dogs, and dealing with emotions from everyone - you've got yourself a full plate.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

My top three tips:

  1. Find someone (or several of them) that are positive business owners. The people who understand there will be difficulties but also see the benefits of being an entrepreneur.
  2. Say NO; saying no to several things will keep you focused. Being focused helps you grow financially, emotionally & spiritually.
  3. Be clear on what you're offering; if you are clear - your audience is clear, and that increases sales.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I'm passionate about helping others step into the online space more and more & am always here to answer questions, give support & remind you that YOU are doing an incredible job.
