About Newbie Academy

If there is one single thing that causes new entrepreneurs the MOST problems – it’s technology.

You can have great ideas, killer testimonials, a vital message, services that people are DYING for – but unless you can actually get yourself online, no one will ever know.

And it can take forever. Things break. Things don’t work the way they are supposed to. The mentors, coaches and trainers you have are awesome – but technology is beyond their scope – and the service providers don’t really understand the needs of a new online entrepreneur.

That’s why I created the Newbie Academy. Clear, simple, step-by-step instructions for the technology you need to get from point A to point B.

About Megan

Hello Weary Traveler, let’s sit down and chat for a moment.

Doing business on the internet can be a challenging, and sometimes frightening thing.

There’s a lot of snake oil, a lot of things people assume you already know, and a lot of pressure to be successful – or at least look as if you are.

Often, there’s a huge lack of kindness, sharing, honesty and help.

Now, I’m of the school of thought that says a tool is a tool, and a strategy is a strategy and a lot of whether they’re icky or sleazy or not is the intention you bring to them. But let’s be honest – no amount of good intentions can make some things *feel* less slimy. Those things are different for everyone – and that makes things complicated when you want to launch and run a business in a way that honors YOU and your values. I get that. I also think that kind of a challenge is what makes life interesting.

I believe in baby steps. I believe in testing, evaluating and testing again. I believe in strong relationships, and don’t think “it’s never been done” is enough of a reason not to give something a shot.

I love playing in “the shallow end” of online business where the tools and strategies and technology are all new, and maybe unfamiliar, and there is still EVERYTHING to learn. I think this is where you can have the most fun, see the biggest impact, and make the most change.

So that’s what I think about business.

You can connect with me on Twitter, or LinkedIn – and if you’ve got any questions about anything on the site, head over to the contact page and drop me a note!

Never forget: You’re not wrong to think that the online world is a huge, confusing, mixed-up, perilous place. It is. But you can navigate it anyway. Let me know if I can help.
