Hey there, babes! This week we were fortunate enough to interview Meg K. Wheeler.
Meg is the founder of One For Women, a company that puts women and women-owned businesses in the spotlight.
One For Women empowers and connects women through easier and more impactful gift giving and a focus on promoting women-owned companies to serve as the catalyst for their growth.
Meg started One For Women after a friend had a bad day. She knew that a beautifully curated gift would be the perfect thing to send a loved one when they get a promotion at work, go through or break up, or just simply need a reminder that someone cares and loves them. One For Women’s gift sets are built with products from women-owned businesses and truly make the perfect, thoughtful gift.
Meg also answered our favorite questions…
Favorite Book: “I’m a classic girl – it’s a toss-up between The Great Gatsby and Pride and Prejudice. Ooh, but I’m also a sucker for The Outlander series!”
Favorite Beverage: “I live on three drinks – green or chamomile tea, raspberry lime sparkling water and Rosé!”
What are you passionate about? “I am so stinkin’ passionate about supporting women. It permeates everything I do – in my business, my volunteerism and my friendships. I think women are awesome and the world has only begun to see the power and potential that we really have, so I’ve made it my mission to be an advocate and voice for women in everything I do. As an entrepreneur, a woman, a feminist, a mother and a friend, I am building a life and a business that I love but that also empowers and supports women through and through. I am a firm believer that ‘a rising tide lifts all boats’ and I am honored to work on behalf of amazing women that the world needs to see more of.”
What do you do really, really well? “Well, I’ve been told I make a mean s’more (I eat one every night for dessert). But in business, my strength is in project management and problem-solving. I’ve got a knack for evaluating an issue or task, clarifying the action items and implementing forward progress. This is a skill that has helped me tremendously in my corporate roles but also in my role as an entrepreneur. Even though it’s harder to see the next step when it’s your business and you’re in the thick of it, I’ve been able to use my experience to wade through the overwhelm that is being a founder.”
If you could do anything with your time (regardless of obligations and finances), what would you do? “Read. I would spend all day and all night reading (I almost already do). I love books because they give me an insight into someone else’s life and I’m fascinated by learning about other people. Reading is second only to travel, which gives you a real-life, in-person opportunity to jump into the stories of other people and experience them for yourself.”
