Episode 1: Intro to Little Awkward Studio Podcast
Ok, before we begin, we need to tell you a little story. Megan and Amy of the “Little Awkward Studio” met in the summer of 2015 just after they both had taken big leaps in their personal lives and moved to NYC. They both were starting their businesses completely from scratch in a new city and were excited, nervous, scared shitless, and mostly just pumped to be living in such an amazing place. As luck would have it, Megan needed a photographer and a friend recommended Amy and the rest, as they say, was history!
Here’s why we love our weird little studio:
We both embrace the imperfections of life.
We work a studio in Gowanus. If you know Brooklyn, then you know that there is no additional explanation needed. We battle truck drivers each morning for parking, work next to a scrap metal receiving area, have countless dead pigeons and weird other “treasures” on our walk to work each day, and yet, we ARE IN LOVE with this little studio where we can make our dreams come true.
We both firmly believe that laughter, being fun and kind, and loving what you do is all that you need in life to succeed.
You can save rent when you "live" with a friend.
We feed one another snacks and brainstorm together like champs.
Join us on a little adventure, will you?
Our podcast will cover all of the topics you can imagine and then some. We will explain business from a real, raw perspective. We will hash out the tough times and challenges that we have faced in growing our businesses in a cut-throat city full of creatives. We will giggle, tell bad jokes and tell you how we survive this craziness. We will share any tips we’ve used that help you to run a business that you can be proud of.

Episode 2: Talking Comparison with Hailey of Household Mag.
This week, we had an extra special guest and one of our closest NYC friends at the Little Awkward Studio, Hailey of Household Mag. You can find out more about Hailey on social media at @householdmagny and here.
Amy met Hailey way back in the day before they were NYC gals and they both have challenged one another to dream big and reach for their crazy goals as they worked together on some amazing projects. Then, they met Megan and we formed a solid little squad of dreamers who love brunch and adventures.
Read more about our girl gang here.
Hailey is a blogger, social media influencer, mama to cute little Owen and a generally bad ass lady. She’s got a heart of gold and she believes that if we support one another as we grow our businesses, only good things can happen.
During this week’s podcast, we talk about the issue of comparison. Comparison is a beast and social media has made it a really tricky situation. We discuss how to avoid it as much as possible online, in real life, in business, and in personal relationships. We talk about our favorite ways to “unplug” and to refresh our minds and to avoid the comparison trap. We decided that day drinking is the only correct way to enjoy brunch. Then we sign off and go to brunch together because that’s what friends do.
Note: Hailey also makes some amazing sound effects that you are just going to want to hear yourself.
