Megan Dalla-Camina is my version of a rockstar.
She’s an author, speaker and researcher on women, leadership and work.
She runs a successful career coaching business.
She is also a single mum.
You can see why I might find her somewhat inspiring…
In 2011, Megan attended a Hay House Publishing Writer’s Workshop and was awarded a publishing deal. At the end of 2012, she released her first book ‘Getting Real About Having It All’. Ultimately a personal development book, it is written as a practical guide for women who feel overwhelmed by the seemingly impossible task of maintaining a successful career as well as a fulfilling personal and family life.
Having established a corporate career that spanned over 20 years, including strategic management roles within companies such as GE and PwC, Megan walked away from her position as Director, Strategy at IBM in 2013 to work solely within her own business.
Having myself really only discovered a love for writing later in life, I was keen to learn whether it was the same for Megan. It turns out, she has always had a love for writing. She started out with poems and songs, then stories. Articles and work related content were a part of her corporate life before writing her book. She has also blogged for HuffPost and Women’s Agenda among others, as well as writing articles for Elle and Marie Claire. Writing is her very favourite thing to do (along with reading, and dreaming).
Having seen Megan speak last year on my day of graduation as a Beautiful You Life Coach, I can see why she has had such success in her career. She is eloquent, confident, warm and engaging. She also holds Masters Degrees in both Business Management and Positive Psychology, so she’s clearly a very savvy lady. Megan is currently working on her next book, which is a collaboration with another brilliant lady I have a whole lot of respect for, Michelle McQuaid. That is certainly one I look forward to reading.
