Rising Stars: Meet Meg McMillan

Today we’d like to introduce you to Meg McMillan. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Meg Marie McMillan is a mom, world traveler, margarita lover, and brand photographer in San Diego who’s empowered over 250 heart-centered entrepreneurs to feel confident AF on camera. When she’s not behind the camera, Meg loves coaching other brand photographers who want to build their own thriving photography business! Meg went from having 27 jobs, one failed business, and quitting college to creating her own six-figure photography business. Through her journey, she discovered that confidence is the not-so-secret ingredient to getting everything you want in life. Now she’s on a mission to help you feel confident AF both on and off the camera and build a business and life you’re wildly obsessed with.

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?
Like so many of us, I struggled with finding my own confidence to be the face of my brand and be visible online. My confidence hit an all-time low when my first attempt at business failed. I looked around at all my friends who were thriving in their careers and I felt behind and frustrated. I thought I would never find my purpose. What I realized on my journey is that PASSION alone is not enough. You need the biz and branding savvy in order to really build a sustainable thriving business. And you need to just take imperfect action forward day after day and get comfortable with being the face of your brand. Once I dove in fully, heart first, my business blossomed. Like anything in life, being confidence in yourself and on camera takes practice. Confidence is a journey not a destination. Photoshoots have been so healing and transformative for me and I love to share that magic with other women. Your photoshoot day is a celebration of the woman you already are and the woman you’re becoming!
