Mini Talk and Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone in College

March 25, 2019

In this episode, I did sort of a mini Ted Talk, called a Meg Talk at a Women's conference at University of Colorado, Boulder. I wanted to share it with you all, mainly because I was super scared, but I still did it. I also talk about the importance of stepping out of your comfort zone and finding out what is possible for you. 

Would love to hear your thoughts!
