Inspiring Conversations with Megan Brehman of emerge life design

Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan Brehman. 

Hi Megan, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I received my coaching certification in 2008. Though I felt compelled and passionate about helping women discover their potential, I was terrified of failure. This fear and my limiting beliefs stopped me from going all in and granted me only side hustle results. 

In 2015, I stopped coaching and pursued what I thought was a more stable career in tech. However, in 2019, after two unfortunate lay-offs and a deep feeling that my life was out of alignment, I decided to relaunch my coaching business. Only this time, I was committed to dismantling self-doubt and succeeding. emerge life design has been a full-time operation for the past three-plus years! 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Putting myself out there for a second time was terrifying. Each social media post, pitch to friends and family, and consultation call left me with a knot in my stomach. However, if coaching has taught me anything, confidence comes from taking messy, scary actions. 

Being an entrepreneur is a rollercoaster, both financially and emotionally. I did not always know if I would have enough money to pay for rent, but I knew it would eventually fall into place if I kept grinding. I have had months, especially in the beginning, where I received no new clients. I learned not to take rejection personally and that my continued time and effort would not always amount to short-term success. 

I wouldn’t trade this journey for anything. I am passionate about helping women become the most empowered versions of themselves and create lives that truly light them up. Their successes are all I need to reassure me of this path. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
emerge life design focuses on helping women level up their professional and personal lives. I primarily teach millennial women how to begin their coaching businesses and I also assist women of all ages in reaching for more in the corporate world. Besides my emphasis on professional coaching, I also integrate holistic practices, such as wellness, life purpose, and relationships, so that each client receives a well-rounded sense of fulfillment that radiates into each facet of their lives. 

I offer virtual 1:1 and small group coaching. Every six months, I host an in-person retreat for my clients that promotes connectivity. My clients rave about these retreats! Many of them have utilized each other for networking opportunities and maintained years-long friendships. I am conscious to make the retreats both fun and impactful. 

Lately, I have started hosting corporate workshops. This training aims to teach employees to live their lives with intention. Through clarity and a newly-gained sense of confidence, they can effectively collaborate, communicate and reach for bigger goals. 

What matters most to you? Why?
My values are connection, growth, spark, beauty, and creation. As I coach women into alignment, I believe I am helping unleash desperately needed positive energy into the world. Bringing strong females together to connect and transform their lives is the most empowering thing I have ever done.
