Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Always Being Curious. – Megan Gebhart
What’s up FLY Zone,
New Guest Alert! Today we have Megan Gebart joining us to talk about 52 Cups of Coffee and the amazing adventure she went on.
Megan is a storyteller, speaker, and writer. Originally from Wyoming, Megan attended Michigan State University, where she immersed herself in a community of daring entrepreneurs and began entrepreneurial ventures of her own.
In 2010 Megan created 52 Cups of Coffee, a website dedicated to the power of connection. What started as an experiment to have coffee with a stranger every week for a year turned into a global exploration filled with serendipity and stories that teach us that finding ourselves is a journey that can last a lifetime.
Today, Megan continues to meet and profile inspiring people. She shares their stories and lessons at conferences and colleges throughout the United States to inspire others to reach out and connect with new people over coffee.
