Megan Harper is a work-from-home mom of 3 kids who recently launched a marketing agency after a successful career in marketing and product growth.
Before kids she was a trained sommelier and worked at some of the top restaurants in NYC. After her son was born she left the restaurant world to work in start-ups and make her name for herself running her funny Instagram account, @girlgonechild_ (formerly @girlgonechildinnyc) which showcases the life of an ex-party girl turned young mom navigating her life in NYC being a working mom and trying to have it all.
During the Pandemic Megan relocated her family to Charlotte, NC where she was working-from-home as the Head of Product Growth for Tinybeans and Red Tricycle in between homeschooling, running after a toddler and breastfeeding. After being laid off from her job only a month later, her post on adding her pandemic parenting experience to her resume went viral and led her on the path to launching her own marketing agency so she could work with many companies, not just one.
In true Mommy’s on a Call fashion, this episode is filled with kids screaming, husbands walking in, and nursing babies, which is a perfect snapshot of what real work-from-home during a pandemic mom life looked like. Megan and I had a real honest, unfiltered, and unapologetic conversation about the struggles of motherhood and managing a career.
