Small-business selfie winner: Megan Langley, publisher of Natural Awakenings of Lake Norman

Megan Langley, publisher of Natural Awakenings of Lake Norman, balances multiple jobs to get the word out about her publication, which debuted in March.

“Part of being an entrepreneur is doing all your own marketing when you are launching a new venture,” Langley wrote.

“I have printed and laminated all the signs for my magazine racks that are going to be set in restaurants and stores around Lake Norman.”

“I love starting a new company because it gives you the chance to build something from the ground up. There is no time to get bored because you are running from thing to thing, wearing 10 different hats, and mastering new skills.” See more at

So she can fuel up while on the road, we’re sending Langley a ShopTalk travel mug. Send us your selfie and you could win a travel mug, too. Use your mobile device to take candid photos of yourself in your business, showing off what you do in your environment. You can ask someone to take photos of you, too, but we don’t want professional shots. We’re looking for candids that capture the selfie spirit.
