We had the good fortune of connecting with Megan Gladney and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Megan, what makes you happy? Why?
Call me crazy but working makes me happy! I love being busy and keeping my family busy.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I make handmade children’s gifts and decor. I hope to expand my line to include new products down the road but I am pretty busy at the current moment…which is fantastic. I love the process of making and packaging a beautiful handmade product.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
One of my favorite spots for families is the Anthem Parks. The train ride is perfect for our daughter and they have different parks for all age ranges, We love going out to eat at Tru Burger in Anthem with our daughter after a trip to the park.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My shout out would be to all my followers, customers and supporters. They keep me motivated and many of my customers inspire creative ideas. The many other makers that I follow on Instagram keep me motivated to keep going. Arizona has an amazing group of Mama Business Owners and Makers!
