    247. Bouncing back from screwing up and getting cancelled with Megan Griffith

    Today we have a raw & honest chat with Megan Griffith of The Neuro Curiosity Club who goes through what's it's like to get "cancelled" on TikTok, to come back from it then making another big mistake right after.

    We go over:

    Taking accountability and questioning if you should just shut down your business.Having your sense of self- rocked (Like am I really a bad person?) How Megan is currently rebuilding trust with her audienceHow it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows coming backA new pricing model she's using that feels more aligned with her valuesWhat it was like to realize you are hurting the audience you so desperately want to help - in Megan's case it was people with neuro- divergenciesWhy words in your offers matterHow just because you're doing something doesn't always mean your qualified to train on it, for pay.
    Get to know Megan better:

    Megan Griffith is a Gemini, a hair dye enthusiast, and a auDHD life coach for the neurocurious. She's spent the last 10 years learning everything she can about emotions, selfhood, neurodivergence, and community. She is an auDHDer herself, and a life coach for people who are stuck in the in between, not sure how to identify, like she was for so long.
