Who is your inspiration and why? A question commonly asked in interviews. For Megan Reid, her inspiration came from her parents, and advice she received from her father.
Opening a business during a pandemic comes with anxiety, apprehensions and excitement. Megan grappled with her decision and ultimately decided there was no better time than now to open her hair salon, MWR Hair. “I felt this strong sense of urgency that I just had to open. I’ve built up my business and following and I didn’t want to disappoint my clients because I care so much about them,” she said.
The guidelines for opening are strict, but Megan noted that she’s following them stringently. She’s been enjoying the stripped down nature of the business, as there are only 10 people allowed in the building, and feels like she’s able to provide a more personal experience for the person in her chair.
Megan said, “my Dad is a successful businessman, and he was the biggest motivator for me to take the plunge. I weighed the risks and advantages; opening on my own business, on my birthday, was the best decision.”
