Meet Megan Corey of 4Core

Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan Corey.

Hi Megan, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.
I’ve always paved my own path, even from a young age as the outcast in my family of rule followers, I wasn’t. I had a huge social circle, I was a star athlete, and I worked multiple jobs at a time to create my independence. I always loved connecting with people, but I also loved making money. I had the drive and hustle of an athlete and the empathy and curiosity of a child. This has served me well into my adult years.

Working jobs where I’d manage and lead teams of extreme caliber, I thrived on the daily grind and the incredible growth I saw in myself each and every day. It was all great and looked picture perfect to most, working side by side with high-ranking government and military officers. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed what I did, who I supported and the incredible teams I worked with.

Once I had kids, my mindset around the hustle and grind changed. I didn’t want the 9-5 anymore, I craved flexibility and independence of location and time for me and the life I was creating raising my kids. I also knew what tI was doing day in and day out wasn’t fulfilling my passion or purpose for being here. I started taking additional training and certifications, really digging into growing, learning, and developing in areas that meant more to me than a paycheck ever could.

Once I realized I could be my own boss, make my own rules, and have the flexibility I wanted, I started my own business and resigned from my job. Granted, I had been doing work on the side leading up to this, creating networks so that I had work lined up so it wasn’t as scary cutting that umbilical cord I was holding onto. I wanted to use my experiences and my passion for helping others.

Sitting in meetings with top-level executives and watching how each and every person took care of themselves, their stress levels, and the culture I was living in, I needed to help that. I now speak and lead events around culture transformation, ending burnout, and team-building to help organizations thrive.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Having 2 young kids, training for a new skill, holding down a full-time job, and trying to start your own business was a struggle. I always had that push-pull and feeling like I wasn’t present in anything I was doing, being a mom, leading a team and doing well at my job, trying to figure out how to start a company.

Luckily my incredible husband and biggest supporter was always pushing me to do more and always there to manage what he could to ease some of the burdens off me. My friends and colleagues were huge drivers in my pursuit and knew where my passion was, they were there to cheer me on and support me wherever they could.

I’ve succeeded and failed and used every event as a learning opportunity to grow and continue to do better, be more efficient, and figure out my path and what worked best. Being a business owner and a mom is a lot to take on, but I had to and continue to give myself grace every step of the way.

We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up.
I have so many memories of swimming as that was ingrained in me from age 5 and I swam all throughout college on a Division I team. It set me up for discipline, determination, and a bit of competitiveness.
