Meet Meg, Nutmeg's owner and designer

  • Looking back on my years as an employee, I always had this unsettling feeling that there was more to life than working for somebody else.
  • I built my first WordPress website in 2010 and my first Shopify store in 2015.
  • I’m an independent-thinking introvert with a rebellious streak.
  • Obsessed with good design, I spend hours collecting inspiration on Pinterest and fiddling with a layout until it is ‘just right’.
  • Ideas keep me up at night.
  • I used to drink coffee with 3 sugars… now I drink green tea with no sugar because I’m trying to get healthy and fit.

My why

  • I started building my own business a few months after becoming a mom;  I craved flexibility, freedom and creativity.
  • I love listening to other people’s entrepreneurial dreams; the way their eyes light up and they get so excited about what they do. This excites me too. These are the people I love working with and sharing space with.
  • Digital marketing and web development are ever-evolving, and I love always learning new things. I think this is the most incredible industry to be working in right now.

I believe that ethical, creative and sustainable boutique businesses will help change the world for the better, one small positive step at a time.

Who you are

Like me, you love the challenge of building a purpose-driven, meaningful and sustainable business.

You’re fiercely determined to succeed because you can’t stand the thought of returning to (or never escaping from ) working for someone else.

It’s your time to do this thing that makes you feel alive and passionate.

You love what you do and believe your business has something unique and special to offer the world.

You believe in running an ethical business; a business that upholds it’s human and environment-centric value system.

There’s not enough hours in the day to work through all the ideas you have.

Meeting, connecting and sharing stories with like-minded people uplifts your soul and inspires you.

You believe in cultivating a growth mindset. It’s about solutions, not problems.

You are kind, fierce and brave.

Community over competition.
