The Meghan Gilroy Interview


In this Episode:

For the first time in my life, my talents, abilities, and propensity for hard work could not solve my problems. Not only was I heartbroken and miserable, but I also did not even know who I was if I could not claim to be uber-successful at everything I did.


About Meghan Gilroy:

My story starts back in 1998, when I was living and teaching in inner-city Los Angeles, just a few years out of college. Having collected A+’s ever since kindergarten, my insatiable appetite for praise was now being fulfilled as an author featured in the Los Angeles Times, interviewed on ABC and even praised by the White House.

It was all impressive on the outside, but deep inside I was not happy.

Up to that point, you might say I was the self-appointed queen of the Overachieving, People-Pleasing, Perfectionist Tribe. But after experiencing major heartbreak, betrayal and an out of control classroom (ouch!), I had a huge wakeup call. My whole world felt like it was falling apart. I was an emotional mess.

For the first time in my life, my talents, abilities, and propensity for hard work could not solve my problems. Not only was I heartbroken and miserable, but I also did not even know who I was if I could not claim to be uber-successful at everything I did.

Thankfully, my guardian angels were working overtime. At my lowest point, they whisked me off and delivered me to don Miguel Ruiz, shaman, and international best-selling author of The Four Agreements. When don Miguel mentioned that he was leading a retreat to the pyramids of Mexico in a few months, I knew I had to go.

On that trip, I learned to trust my heart and not just rely on my super, hemi-powered brain. I started tapping into my intuition. I discovered that the roles I played in my life – daughter, professional, girlfriend etc. — do not define who I am. I became gentler and kinder with myself, less harsh and judgmental.

I also realized that it was essential to my soul to embark on a spiritual journey. And that realization changed the course of my life.

Over the next decade, I followed don Miguel around the world, spelunking my way through my emotional baggage and mental limitations. Eventually I wound up co-teaching with him, running his international retreat business and even getting locked into Machu Picchu at night with the llamas. (Really! You just can’t make this up!)

During this time, I met my husband-to-be at one of don Miguel’s events. On our first date, Jamie and I went to a beautiful meditation garden overlooking the Pacific, sat down to meditate, and each had a separate vision of being married on top of the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan, Mexico.

Two weeks later, we were in Mexico, on a retreat, on top of that very pyramid getting married. Crazy right?

I know it could have been a disaster, but it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Jamie and I moved back to the East Coast and in less than four years created a seven-figure business. And so, it was that I became a multi-tasking mama, life-and-business coach, and TV-show host (whew).

It was quite a ride, actually. Since we started out in debt, by necessity we had to do it all ourselves – branding, marketing, positioning, copywriting, bookkeeping, website development, systems implementation, you name it!
