Megan Morton grew up on a banana farm in Queensland, moving to Sydney at 18 and landing her first job at Dolly magazine! She worked various roles in magazines and publishing before having children, and embarking on a career as a self-employed stylist.

Since then, Megan’s authored five amazing books and launched ‘The Studio’ photography-and-event-space in Sydney, as well as ‘The School’, which hosts workshops by various experts in small business, making and design, and runs once-in-a-lifetime travel tours to the likes of Paris, India, Tokyo and Kenya!

I caught up with Megan in Sydney recently, and we chatted about the evolution of her businesses and various passion projects!

Also… TDF Talks is an enhanced podcast. So, if you’re using the Overcast or Pocket Casts apps, you will see some beautiful images of Megan’s projects and links in your player while you listen.
