Women Of Boise Featuring Comedian Megan Bryant
The second best part of my job (behind making women look and feel beautiful) is getting to work and become friends with some of the most amazing POWERHOUSE women in Boise and beyond! Because I am always SO impressed with the caliber of women I get to meet, I decided to start featuring them so you could get to know them a little better.
Today I’m talking to the beautiful, hilarious and kindhearted Megan Bryant.
You may have seen Megan’s brilliant one woman show here in Boise, or maybe you just stalk her FB page for your daily laughs like I do. Whatever the case, here are some thing about this gorgeous woman you may not already know!
I’ve had my business for 12 years and I teach improv workshops, perform comedy variety shows, motivational speaker, freelance writer, commercial actor, professional event emcee. I pretty much do all sorts of rad things to help create “Happier, Healthier Human Connections Through Humor.”
E: I love it! What do you love most about what you do?
I get to dive into emotional realms that make people think and feel and find ways to smile through the trials we face in life. It is a free-flow of my creative juices and it makes me feel like a better person.
E: Are you a member of any business groups or clubs?
I do a LOT with Women Ignite International, and I serve as the VP of the Board of Directors for A New Beginning Adoption Agency. And I love to visit and support all types of groups in the community.
E: That’s so amazing. Have you received any awards or titles, or published any books, courses or workshops that you’d like us to know about?
I’ve received the Idaho Business Review’s “Accomplished Under 40” and “Women of the Year” honors, published an Idaho Author Award-winning autobiography “Not My Plan,” and teach improv workshops open to the community called “Yes, And Lifestyle.”
E: Megan, I am not surprised in the least! Now, tell me about your life outside of work.
I’m a single/divorced mom of four kiddos ages 10, 5, 3, and 20 mos. I get to be home with them first, and plug my work projects in around them, which makes me a very happy, blessed mommy.
In my spare time I enjoy doing ALL THE THINGS! Walks with the kids, playing on the trampoline and baking cookies. I love to try new things, big adventures from time to time like sky diving or hiking Mt. Borah, or just going to movies, hanging with friends, singing karaoke. I love going to comedy shows, being in comedy shows, bowling, making potato salad, and saying “That’s what she said” as often as I can when people unknowingly set me up for it.
E: Ha! You kill me…ok, describe yourself in 3 words.
Reliable, Empathetic, Persistent
E: What are 5 things people may not know about you?
Hmmmm…I’m such an open book I’m not sure. Haha! 1. I’ve never had any cavities. 2. I love to write poetry 3. I named my youngest baby “Wrangler” after the Jeep I had to get rid of for a bigger mom rig. 4. I’m still obsessed with Titanic and listen to the music OFTEN 5. I love frozen Reese’s
E: I, too, love Reese’s! What’s your favorite saying or quote?
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. -Maya Angelou
E: How about the best business advice you’ve ever received?
To not listen to too many other people’s advice.
E: Touché! How long have you lived in Boise and what do you love about our city? Favorite places, people things?
Born and raised! I love that we are big enough to have so many rad things to do, but in many ways it still has a sorta small town vibe. We get to enjoy all four seasons and have endless, beautiful recreation options all around us, and the cutest, peppy downtown. I’ve traveled a lot and have always been so delighted to come home to Boise.
E: Anything else we should know about you and/ or your business?
It is one of the only businesses I can think of that applies to ANYONE. Everyone needs laughter and tools for better human communication and connection. I have a really cool and unique opportunity to be fluid and adaptable to any demographic.
E: So true! Where can we find you online?
Thank you Megan for being such an amazing human being and Boise businesswoman!
