About

Feel stuck in life or business? You’re in the right place!

My name is Megan Taylor Morrison and I work with amazing people around the globe to live authentic, abundant, connected and fully expressed lives.

My clients come in many forms: young men and women figuring out their next steps, people who desire to live more aligned with their values, corporate executives who feel overwhelmed and stressed out, heart-centered entrepreneurs who desire more financial abundance, or people who are looking for more connection and authenticity in their relationships.

Why I coach: I believe we each have a calling—a unique way we are meant to show up in the world. Sometimes, however, we’re not sure how to follow our calling or fear what will happen if we do. Imagine what would be possible if each of us was fully empowered to live an authentic, inspired life! The world would be filled with more creativity, laughter, meaningful connections, play and joy than ever before. That is the world I want to live in.

What I do: I work with my clients to get clear on what they want, create an action plan to their goals, cultivate mindfulness, and figure out how to work through any blocks that get in the way. I do this work through my one-on-one coaching practice, group programs, workshops, and trips abroad.

My story:

After graduating from college, I knew I was meant to serve the world through dance and coaching. And while I could imagine an incredible life dedicated to these things, I was too terrified to create it.

Over the next eight years, I worked many jobs I knew were not my calling and made excuses for not committing to my dream life: I didn’t have the money. I didn’t have the time. I was getting too old to dance. There was no way my idea could be profitable. I wasn’t inspiring enough. I did not know how to run a business.

I told myself it was impossible, and I listened to other people who said the same. It felt safer to let the dream go than to try and fail.

Ignoring my calling took a toll. I dreaded getting out of bed and going to work, had daily anxiety attacks, and felt depressed and disconnected from my authentic self. It took serious energy to keep my passion bottled up.

Then, I met my first life coach–an incredible woman who challenged me to turn my 10-year plan into a two-year plan. Six months later, I cut back to part-time at my job. Less than a year later, I was traveling the world, teaching dance, and coaching other people to create similar shifts in their lives.

Before life coaching, my dream seemed unrealistic. The coaching process allowed me to unleash the energy of my passion and serve the world through my unique gifts.

About My Coaching
I am a graduate of Accomplishment Coaching (AC)–a year-long training program accredited by the International Coach Federation. I now serve as a mentor coach for AC and help train new coaches in this program. Through my studies, I’ve acquired more than 500 tools to facilitate breakthroughs and provide insight. As part of my commitment to being the best coach possible, I receive coaching every week and continue to build on my education through workshops with various organizations, including the Coaches Training Institute (CTI).

Still want more details about me? Here you go!

  • I have lived in four countries: Madagascar, Kenya, France and Australia. Here in the United States, I’ve called Fresno, California; Seattle, Washington; Chicago, Illinois; New York City, New York; and Arlington, Virginia home. Through my many moves, I’ve become adept at managing transitions, staying present and making the most of new opportunities.
  • I am also the founder of Dance Adventures. That’s right–I’m a powerful woman with TWO businesses!
  • My many jobs in my 20’s included cheesemonger, tour guide abroad, full-time writer and editor, prep chef and graduate student. I believe my varied experiences gave me the tools and wisdom to finally step into my potential and own my mission.
  • If I could never dance again, my main sport would be rock climbing.
  • I have an undergraduate degree in international affairs and French from the University of Puget Sound.
  • I have a graduate degree in journalism from Northwestern University. The tactics that made me a great journalist also make me an excellent life coach. I ask thoughtful questions, listen carefully to the answers, and can think on my feet.
  • I knew lindy hop (swing dancing) would be my greatest love in life the moment I saw it. Within a month of taking my first private lesson, I was dancing five nights a week!
  • According to Myers Briggs, I am an ENFP. As such, I have both extrovert and introvert tendencies. I love this because I can connect well with both types of people.
