Not your average Spelling-Bee Champ…
Meg Weinkauf is a seasoned patron of nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and a master influencer on social media. Known for her song-bird positioning, The Faithful Leader™ has been daring entrepreneurs to rebel...since she was a child.
Born in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Meg was raised in Classic Farm Country where she learned the value of hard work and diligence from her parent’s leading examples. Brought up close to her grandfather, a preacher, she spent much of her youth saddled between church pews & the great outdoors–four wheeling, hunting, fishing, playing basketball, volleyball, and softball. Now, she carries on the traditions of her past with her husband and soulmate–a Rural Dream Life based in trust, hustle, and forever-forward progress.
It is this unique blend of dedication & tireless faith that Meg channels for the Faithful Leader.
Currently the Co-Founder and Chief Evangelist of LaunchPad Labs, a Tulsa startup on a mission to launch successful lives through their action inspiring soft skills curriculum. In 2016, LaunchPad Labs was accepted into the first cohort of BetaBlox, a new startup incubator in Tulsa.

Arkansas, she would go on to earn 2015 Student of the Year honors at the Jack Welch Management Institute, where she will complete her Master’s in Business Administration this upcoming year. Additionally, Meg has taken the time to become certified as a Personal Branding Strategist, a 360Reach Analyst, and as a Social Branding Analyst.
Meg is also actively involved serving on the Tulsa Area United Way Emerging Leaders Society and Small Business Steering Committees, as well as the Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women Advisory Council.
