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

Hi Meghan, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
I am inspired by creativity, beauty, and the confidence I can bring other women. I am inspired by the life stories, laughs, and tears of every single one of my amazing clients who started as friends that supported my business or became my friends through my business. Being a women is hard and taking time for ourselves is hard. I wanted to offer a true safe space where women can be themselves and leave feeling better and more confident in themselves than they did when they came in the door. I am also inspired by my new all female team who has believed in my vision of creating a real powerful team of women who truly support each other and our community.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Faces by Meghan has been through so many growing pains since I first decided to go out on my own in May of 2019. My vision of what I wanted for my business was and is still so big and the space I started in was so small. I rented a small and affordable room with zero clientele and moved my husband and dogs into a smaller apartment to make up for the added rent and expenses of the business. I am currently most excited about my new location in the warehouse district of West Palm Beach. Our grand opening is November 6th and we have three treatment rooms plus a lash area and a spray tan area. I hired a team of incredibly talented estheticians that I am so excited to work with and teach what I know as well as learn from them! We will also have a boutique with custom fit swimsuits. I started wanting to be a business owner ten years ago with photography and the path was not easy to get here today and I don’t expect things to be easy moving forward. Things change and I had to learn to adapt. I overcame every challenge just by pure determination. (Those skills probably came from the Army) When I set my mind on something I don’t give up no matter how hard or impossible it may seem. I also learned that the people in my life made a large impact on my focus and ability to succeed. I have huge dreams for my business, myself, my team, my clients, and my family and I am never going to stop dreaming.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am so in love with South Florida and Everything it has to offer. I would spend a lot of time on the beach, fishing, and paddle boarding. I would have to reserve a night to visit Delray. I love eating at The Office, playing pinball at the Silver Ball Museum, and then corn hole and drinks at The Sandbar.
Key lime pie and drinks at Key Lime House in Lantana.
Okeechobee Steakhouse is a must in West Palm for steak, dessert, and lemon drops.
I would definitely have to take my BFF around the warehouse district by my business. We would go Palm Beach Pole for an incredible pole, chair, flexibility, or conditioning class or two. I always have to go to Hakuna Makavah for a tea to boost my energy. We would go to Outrageous room to break some stuff and yell (it’s all about de stressing) I would take her for a fun cardio class at Latin Bounce.
We would also have to plan a day to explore Miami and a day for Hollywood Beach and the Hardrock Casino

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?
I definitely would not be where I am today without the love, support, and hard work from my husband. He has never doubted me and my vision, even though we have both had to made so many difficult sacrifices with both our time and our money to make my business what it is today and we aren’t anywhere close to being finished yet! I also need to give a shout-out to all of my clients who have been patient and understanding through the process of moving into my new space and my friends who have shown up and put in work to help me finish the new space so everyone can enjoy it. I am truly blessed to have such incredible and loving people in my life.
