My Story

Hello new friend, I’m Meg Weinkauf. After twelve years’ experience in corporate accounting, I asked myself if this is what I should be doing with my life. I’d received raises. I’d earned promotions. But there was a deep longing for something more.

I wanted to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. So I did something about it.

The Faithful Leader was founded to help go-getters and ambitious, professionals like you make their long-term goals achievable. This is my MO and it’s why I love what I do.

Along the way, I found the work that was meaningful to me—sometimes by making it. Launchpad Labs was founded by a colleague and me to help students learn professional and social skills necessary to succeed.

To be the best coach and advisor I can, I earned an MBA from the Jack Welch Management Institute and became a certified Personal Branding Strategist, 360Reach Analyst, Digital Branding Analyst, and certified Habit Finder (mindset) coach with the Og Mandino Group. 

Now I’m working toward a PhD in Organizational Leadership concentrating in Human Resource Development while helping students, colleagues and clients take meaningful steps toward their personal and professional goals. Each step of my career has brought new challenges. But I’ve never wished for anything less. To work toward building the world I want to see while leaving a meaningful legacy is the best use of my time and energy.

Now it’s your turn. I want to hear from you: your career, your goals, your why. I want to work with you to turn your ambitions into meaningful achievements. When you’re ready to get started, let’s chat!
