Episode 23: Meg Lewis

Meg Lewis is a designer and founder of Ghostly Ferns—a family of freelancer BFFs. She also founded Fool Proof—a coworking space to support creativity in Minnesota. She’s also a really nice person.

In this episode, Meg tells us about her recent move to Minnesota, why she started a coworking space, the importance of working with friends, why you should be yourself when working with clients, personal branding, and much more.

If you have to say no to a client, you might as well say no, but then offer them an even better more capable person. That way it keeps the relationship with that client on a friendly note—and maybe they’ll hire you for something even better later on. And your friend gets a great project out of it at the same time!
