#25 Imposter Syndrome and the Benefits of Simplifying Life with Megan Williams

In this episode I’m speaking with my good friend Megan Williams; model and founder of Hunu. Megan and I met over a decade ago when we were both beginning our modeling careers in London. More recently Megan has been living in New York and it's there that she began to learn first hand about the affects of our modern lifestyles on the environment. This ultimately led her to launch a start-up, HUNU, with her partner, Vince.

In this episode we talk about Megan's earlier career and what inspired her to use her platform for good. We talk about her transition into entrepreneurship, complete with imposter syndrome and low self-esteem, and how it ultimately helped her to overcome perfectionism and the need to always succeed; or seem to be doing so. We talk about expectations and how being more vulnerable makes space for more learning and growth, and we talk about the importance of always being prepared to learn and able to improvise on the go.

We talk about HUNU and their mission to encourage people to live more sustainably whilst still leading modern lives, and their commitment to equip people with useful, everyday items to reduce single-use waste. We also talk about Megan's personal life with her partner who recently finished building a property in rural upstate New York. The property is self-sustaining and made from natural materials, free from wifi or any signal at all, and complete with compost toilets. We talk about how she has adjusted to a simplified way of living, and how going off grid on a regular basis has been key for her to find balance, remain present, and live more consciously amidst the fast paced lifestyle that comes with the job. We talk about how to stay connected whilst disconnecting, and how to find a sustainable balance between the two.
