225: Megan Collins: The Style Girlfriend Shows Us Guys The Way To Dress To Impress
Or perhaps you are the kind of guy that has a style thing going on, but you are looking for a bit of quick inspiration instead of traipsing around the shops on a weekend.
Combining the best of fashion, food, travel and fitness, all from the perspective of a female, guys across the world have at their fingertips the perfect guide to help them have it all.
As she says “I want my readers to have it all. The swagger, the girl, the great meal, the adventure. All of it.”
But although the platform is going from strength to strength, her journey started about as far as possible away from the heady world of online fashion advice as possible.
Starting her career back in 2001 in a customer relations position for Bumble and bumble a fast-growing, luxury hair care brand located in NYC, she then went into Government affairs for three years, before doing a myriad of positions that filled time more than exploded her passions.
In fact it wasn’t until performing a favour to a friend by starting Style Girlfriend, did it then turn into a syndicated national newspaper column, and later as a men’s style blog, and as they say the rest is history.
So what does she think is the number one mistake that men make when throwing on something each morning?
Picking it off the floor where they left it the night before, or something far more serious?
And what is her fascination with 70’s movie star Steve McQueen?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Style girlfriend herself, Megan Collins
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
Why it is madness to fit into a companies idea of when we should be the most productive. Why should we work 9 to 5 if it doesn’t suit our body clocks?
How she was so surprised that when she started “Style Girlfriend” there wasn’t a similar online presence giving mens fashion advice from a ladies point of view.
Why she now believes that security only truly comes from a role where you are indispensable and how many of us can truly say that in life?
How you can only really benefit by saying “Yes” when someone gives you an opportunity even if you don’t know what you are doing. Say “Yes” and then learn as quickly as you can how to do it.
How when she left the corporate role for a while she got really “judgey” and couldn’t understand why people were settling for such unhappiness and time restraints.
