I remember my first client pitch 🔙
I took the day off from my 9-5 but still made sure to look professional, but in a entrepreneurial-I-don’t-really-need-your-business-but-fuck-I-really-want-your-business type fashion 😇
My OG business partner & I walked into Ascension Coffee with a deck we had fully prepared from info derived from @tailopez
digital marketing course & Google (of course).
The meeting flowed effortlessly & the potential client loved us. So much that we didn’t even use our deck until the very end!
But to be honest, I felt like a total joke.
I’d never done anything like this before on my own, how could I be making all these promises?
To add to the humor, we pitched baseline digital services to this client at a rate of $13,000/MONTH 😱 because that’s what Google suggested to us...
L O freaking L 😂😂😂 we were so jacked to pitentially have an extra $6.5k in our bank accounts each month we didn’t even think about how incredibly OFF this was.
The two men kindly talked us down & asked us to reconsider (thank God), turned into a client, & now I consider them to be incredible mentors & inspirations of mine.
Was is pretty? No. Did I know what I was doing? Deffffdinitely not 😆
But I DID get out there. And I kept getting out there.
I’d feel on top of the world during the pitch (I thank years of dancing on stage & BSing my way through art history papers for that) & then doubt would creep in post-pitch. Did I ramble? Were there typos in my pitch? Did I show them why I would be the absolute best person for their business? Did I even breathe?!
Over the last few years of pitching, I’d say I’m halfway decent at getting clients now 😜
If you’re in a position where you are terrified of being bad at something or trying something for the first time...
This is your reminder, you’re not supposed to be an expert yet.
You gotta work towards it. Put in the reps. Experiment. Learn. Fail. Get better. Give yourself grace, & enjoy the ride 💕
The other day I was @tjmaxx
and found this Sherpa Pullover for $20! 😍🙌🏼 It was an immediate yes from me! 1/4 the price of the more expensive ones and honestly the same quality! Steal steal steal 💰
I was even at dinner the other night and people kept coming up to me asking if they could touch it (imagine being pet by strangers in a restaurant, super interesting lol) and asking where I got it 😂 You neeeeeeeed 💗 #tjmaxxfinds #tjmaxxstyle
- you can use my code “MEGAN20” for $20 off!

I have a tile floor obsession 👈🏼
One of my missions in my every day life is to make people feel included. I hate when I see someone feel left out. Growing up, I was always the one that invited the new kid to sit at my lunch table bc seeing them stand alone and overwhelmed in the cafeteria, not knowing where they belonged yet, was something I knew I would never want to experience (but welcome to growing up. It happens. A lot). Having your community around you is important but sometimes it’s hard to feel included in a world that’s to internet based and you never know what’s real and what’s fake. This world is also insanely competitive. Competition is beautiful but I also believe it thrives when inclusivity and community is a priority. Furthermore, we need inclusion because we need more representation from people of all walks of life not only on IG but also speaking in public and holding influential positions. This photo I posted happened because I reached out to shoot with @shes_the_manda_
on IG and she too believes in inclusion so she created a group of people to come together and use their talents to have a fun little collab in the city together. I hadn’t met anyone on the shoot before, and because of them, a whole new community of creatives in the DFW area opened up to me and I was able to really connect with open minded souls and it was so great to have that inclusion. It’s hard trying to find a sense of belonging in this world, so I truly want to make it clear that I have space and will give a platform to people who want to have a connection and voice. Sometimes we get caught up in the excitement of exclusivity because it gives us a sense of importance but to stay humble and to stay inclusive is so much more rewarding 🙌 | when a brand’s mission focuses on inclusion, I can absolutely get behind it. @mondettaoriginals

Waking up to who you are requires letting go of who you imagine yourself to be. 💡💭
You are in full control of destiny. Follow your dreams and align your actions with them 💡
A lil bit about SheBatty, life and style.
So, SheBatty is a play on my last name. Many people pronounce it, how it’s spelled, (Bat•tee). However it’s pronounced (Bay•tee). I’m one cool and crazy chick, and She’s Batty was already taken. I dropped the S and thus SheBatty was born! 👑
Life in my world is pretty normal. I am the mother of two smart and wise beyond their years daughters, and married to an intelligent and handsome 6 foot 3, pecan brown man who loves me and our children beyond measure. Between pursuing my dreams, through the SheBatty platform, I work full time.
My lifestyle is definitely go with the flow. My parenting style is so what you have to do you can do what you want to. Always do your best, and you can be anything you set your mind to!
As a wife, ‘I AM HIS BEYONCE’ and you better believe it!
And my style...it’s a mix of Afrocentric, chic, classy, rocker with a lil ‘round the way girl. 💅🏽

Years ago I never thought that I would be able to look back on my life and smile at what I’d gone through! Yes it still hurts from time to time but I can smile knowing that “In ALL things, God works for the good of those who love him!” He has turned around my situation for His good and He will do the same for you!
Austin was off this evening ♥️ Perfect way to spend the evening before our early flight tomorrow!
