Cofounder of Wants a flux capacitor.

Oh, you want more?

Megan is cofounder and the Editor in Chief of, one of the Top 100 sites in the world (according to Quantcast, for those who track these things). She started the popular publishing platform in 2005 with Seth Godin, Corey Brown and Gil Hildebrand. 

Before starting Squidoo, Megan was an acquiring editor in business book publishing. That's a lot like being a VC for funding and developing ideas into books. She learned a lot about storytelling, packaging, marketing and sales over her years in book publishing. 

Megan also consults for web companies looking for new user acquisition and community growth, often layering game mechanics in to their strategies.  

In her free time she is working on a new dog profile project. If you have a dog you're madly in love with, you should email Megan and say hi. Maybe you can join the project.
