Podcast 225: Megan Collins: The Style Girlfriend Entrepreneur Shows Us The Way To Dress For Success In Our Careers
If you are an entrepreneur, businessman or just someone who is looking to impress then todays guest is the go to lady if you are a guy who likes to look good, but hasn't got the first idea how to pull it off.
Or perhaps you are the kind of guy that has a style thing going on, but you are looking for a bit of quick inspiration instead of traipsing around the shops on a weekend.
Combining the best of fashion, food, travel and fitness, all from the perspective of a female, guys across the world have at their fingertips the perfect guide to help them have it all.
