Know HER November Meegan Hofmeister
Who is Meegan Hofmeister???? She is a fierce, fabulous, and loyal to a fault! Both Amber & Tiff are honored to know her and have her in our tribe! Here is a little more about her in her own words…
M. in a nutshell: a fashion-obsessed, fitness-enthused, travel-inspired, goal-driven serial entrepreneur, who is probably a little overly obsessed with her dog, madly in love with her husband, & made freakishly happy by the pizza delivery man. I live for creating a community of women on their way (@thedostalhouse), I strive to build an authentic lifestyle brand (@signedM.eegan), I dream of building a branding agency that produces independent women & I am blessed to be wife to a businessman who “gets” my girlboss quirks.
Q: Where is your home town?
A: Although I’ve always been convinced that I didn’t belong there… I’ve been a small town girl my entire life! I was born in Illinois & grew up in northeast Iowa.
Q: Are you an early bird or night owl?
A: Definitely an early bird. I love getting a good workout in first thing in the morning, followed by a little 1-on-1 time with God, & then I plan out the rest of my day.
Q: What motivates you?
A: Growth. Personally & professionally. I’m competitive, to a fault at times, but being born with a hunger for “more” has always been a motivator: more independence, more opportunity, more channels for helping others. Some girls grow up knowing exactly what they want to be, whereas I grew up knowing exactly who I didn’t want to be: ordinary, dependent, struggling with confidence issues.
Q: Bing worthy TV show...or podcast?
A: I’m always on the hunt for binge worthy podcasts… but unless I have a little drive time ahead of me, I don’t typically tune in. However, especially in the colder (ahem… winter is coming!) months, binging watching television is kind of a way of life! If Sex & The City is on, I’m tuned in… but for more recent titles, my husband & I are suckers for Game of Thrones & House of Cards!
Q: Favorite song to blast through the speakers? At this moment. We know it can change depending on the day :)
A: Oh… there are so many… anything Beyonce, when I’m in a girls-run-the-world sorta mood, & John Legend’s new album, A Legendary Christmas, has taken over my Alexa lately, because I love the holidays! However, if I had to pick *just one* song to turn it up & break it down to right now… it would have to be “Level Up” by Ciara.
Q: Top 3 women you look up to
A: My grandmother. She’s probably the strongest woman I’ve ever met. She’s buried a son & a husband, & still powers through. She & my grandfather set an amazing example of what “putting the work in” looks like in marriage & in life. & at 93, she’s still the very definition of an independent woman!
Gwyneth Paltrow has always been a woman that fascinates me; her life as a businesswoman & lifestyle guru, specifically. Her dedication to feminism, her commitment to wellbeing & her always-evolving, & incredibly successful, personal branded GOOP are inspirational!
I’m also a little obsessed with Jaclyn Johnson, CEO & Founder of Create & Cultivate, rn. The personal journey she share in her book, Work Party, so closely resonates with mine… so I’m drawing tons of inspiration from her in the present moment!
Q: Favorite social media platform (and who do you stalk on it)?
A: I have a serious addiction to Instagram. In fact, the latest iPhone update has informed me that I spend an average of 15 hours per week on it! I stalk a wide variety of influencers for many different reasons: I love @figtny for her minimalist style. I'm obsessed with following @jaceyduprie as she gets ready to embark on motherhood, @brenebrown gives me life through her inspirational outlook on life, @chrissyteigen for her hilarious realness, @girlwithnojob because she’s also hysterical, @mylittlepeepers because all I want for Christmas is a mini dwarf horse… this question is making me think that I might need to find new hobbies, outside of Instagram stalking…
Q: BEST guilty pleasure?
A: Online shopping. My husband calls it a “problem,” but I definitely find it to be more of a pleasure!
Q: One beauty item you CAN NOT live without, and why?
A: Botox. I never want to look old!
Q: Favorite simple quote
A: Work like it’s up to you. Pray like it’s up to God.
Q: Why Sol Sisters?
A: Because life really is better with a spray tan! I feel like my best self with a spray tan, & that carries over into all areas of life. When you look good, you feel good… & that’s exactly what my Sol Sisters does for me! I’ve gotten spray tans from numerous other places, & being able to dial in my own custom color has made *all the difference* in me turning my occasional spray tans into a regular habit I’d struggle to give up!
