Get to Know our Tribe - Megan Johns - Lady Boss Edition
There are so many inspirational female entrepreneurs kicking-ass at life and business on Vancouver Island! We wanted to take an opportunity to highlight a few of these amazing women in our Lady Boss Edition of our Get to Know our Tribe.
I had been watching what Megan was up to from a far . . . for about a year. We both collaborated with the talented team at Ma-Luxe Mag and I had tried a few of her beauty products . . . I was totally in awe of what she was doing in the green beauty arena and felt like Good Life + The Green Kiss were meant to be connected! When I finally got to see what she was doing up close and personal and meet her in person I was kind of blown away. Megan has a fantastic little beauty booth within The Good Planet Co on fort st. Victoria and for a small space packs in a lot of fantastic products. Herself and her team are incredibly knowledgeable and talented. I highly recommend you go in and chat to them about swapping out some of your chemical ridden cosmetics for some that are green and clean. Since using their Liquid Mineral Foundation from Sappho Cosmetics I have got more compliments on my skin than ever!
I hope you enjoy getting to know Megan as much as I have! - Andrea Dershin, GLJ Founder.
1.) Where do you work? Position? How long have you worked there? What do you love about your company?
I am the owner of The Green Kiss which I opened 4 years ago. I love that we help get sh*t off of women’s faces and bodies. We provide them a one stop shop for natural cosmetics that are truly just as effective as what they are used to using, and in turn, their skin gets SO much better!
2.) Tell us about an upcoming adventure you plan to take?
When I am not at The Green Kiss, I sing in a country duo called The County Line. While we do often travel with the band, the real adventure of 2016 will be the release of our first EP.
3.) What do you enjoy most about living in your community?
The thing I enjoy the most about living in Victoria, is how common it is to live a healthy and eco conscious lifestyle. Travel throughout Canada and the USA over the years has opened up my eyes to the lifestyle and ‘norms’ that we often take for granted here on the island.
4.) What are you about to eat?
I am about to eat a lotta really good (and really bad) food as it is Christmas Eve! <3 Toping that list would be treats from The Dutch Bakery at a family gathering tonight.
5.) What did you care most about when you were 10 years old?
Singing, dancing and my mum. :)
6.) What’s your spirit animal?
I don’t even like them that much, but birds. I have had three separate occasions, each years apart, where I had been struggling with something, and a bird (seagull, crow, and little finch) appeared and caused complete havoc. One example was when a crow was trapped flying around my store. Each time, these crazy birds ended up turning my woes into a fit of problem solving to help them, and then absolute laughter. I still haven’t figured out what it means, but there’s gotta be something to it!? :)
7.) _______ (Name of famous person) you would most like to _______
Celine Dion - sing with! **I KNOW it’s cheesy but I love her! lol
8.) What was your first pet’s name? (Just in case we have to hack into your email account)
Kibby the guinea pig.
9.) What super power would you most like to have?
Taking away peoples pain.
10.) What is your favorite activity to get you sweat on?
11.) What do you do to relax?
Take my dogs for a walk, or watch sex and the city marathons.
12.) What is your favorite outdoor activity?
13.) Guilty pleasure indulgence? (not food)
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. (you totally have permission to judge me).
14.) What’s your favorite GLJ juice?
