Improv is NOT for Everyone

I fell in love with the art of improvisation over ten years ago. Within mere MINUTES of my first experience with the craft I could sense that it was going to be absolutely life changing. I knew it would be an influential skill set from then on. I felt it should be a part of EVERYONE’S lives. How could something this profound exist and the whole world not function on its premise? Within weeks of participating in improv rehearsals (which I know sounds like an oxymoron, but just roll with it,) I began to notice the way that the performance

VLOG 7 Not My Plan

I can’t believe I’m finally writing this blog. I’ve been eager for this moment for months. What a whirlwind the past 18 months have been. What started as a little, persistent inkling in my very soul, urging me to share this positive story of adoption has become a small pile of pages bound together in the form of a real BOOK. Amazing. (To me…) This book really became something special and meaningful because it includes contributions by my mother, my birth daughter, and both of her parents. Amid the digging into my own past, I had help from my sisters,

VLOG 6 A Jeep Farewell

Listen, I understand there are MUCH bigger problems in the world than having to sell my Jeep, but humor me for a few minutes (or don’t! No one will MAKE you watch this) so I may lament the passing of my Jeep keys into the hands of another man. There are no other items that exist on this planet that I feel any specific attachments to. None. As a young girl I remember rubber-necking any time a Jeep Wrangler (or even a Jeep Grand Cherokee or Cherokee) would drive by. I wanted one someday. They look so much different than

VLOG 5 Stuff n’ Things

It’s been a fun project to learn how to VLOG about the life of a mompreneur. The hardest part is actually remembering to film stuff! I actually have to be quite intentional about the process, which sorta takes away from the authenticity of capturing me in my natural habitat. My busiest days are so much darting around that I just never think to film. Still, it’s a fun project, and keeps me focused on how I spend my time each day. If nothing else this will be a virtual journal for me to enjoy years from now. If you don’t

VLOG 4 Comedy Press Kit Prep

Some days I’d like to just not have a to-do list. Just be a mom. Good news is I can do that in short increments each day, and for that I am TRULY grateful. It doesn’t keep me from stressing out about all the things I could be doing to further my business objectives, however, but I do what I can and try not to stress out too much. The only way I can get things done is to break things down into bite-sized tasks. Yesterday was a day filled with meetings, catching up on emails and phone calls, and

VLOG 3 Home Again, Home Again

Funny thing about a “quick trip” to Florida is that from Boise, where I live, that means 10-12 hour process to get there, grab a bite, hit the pillow, work for 4 hours in the morning and head right back to the airport for another 10-12 hours to get home. Ahh, the things you have to do when you build a business from scratch. Thankfully, it was a great session of Zip Zap Zop (improv in the workplace) and ultimately, I felt like it was totally worth it. When I walked in the door at 10pm, two of the three

Horse Cart: Part 3 of 3 in a KookyMegan Mini-Series

I have this recurring dream. It hits the subconscious cycle of my sleep zone about once or twice a week lately. I’m frantic. It’s the final day of my beach destination vacation. I’m scrambling around trying to pack things and prepare to head home. All of my stuff is in the drawers, which never happens in real life when I travel, so I’m yanking each drawer open and heaving things into my suitcase. I keep noticing how fast the time is moving and we are cutting it dangerously close getting out the door to the airport. I keep glancing out

VLOG 1 Work at Home Momma

Gotta keep things interesting around here, so I finally started vlogging last week. It will be my humble attempt to capture myself in the natural habitat of working from home while raising little adorable (and crazy) kiddos. It is as literal as possible to juggle working from home while they are climbing under/in my desk and on me. They also love to help me type, flat-palmed and slap-happy. So, here’s another variety of all things @KookyMegan. Hope you enjoy!

Nurture Calls: Part 2 of 3 in a KookyMegan Mini-Series

Being the youngest of six in a family that blended together when I was seven, I always savored the feeling of a full house. There were countless activities and conversations going on at any given time. Mostly pleasant, but sometimes listening in on a tantrum-throwing teenage older sister who liked to slam doors so hard they nearly popped off their hinges, or throw all of my belongings out the second story window. I was still better off than the old boom box with a busted antenna that met its ultimate demise when she lobbed that sucker into the air from
