The Couragemakers Podcast | Encouragement, Inspiration & Rebel Rousing for Mission Driven Doers, Makers & Shakers |

Couragemakers is the weekly podcast for creative and multi-passionate women. Because building the life you want and putting stuff in the world takes a boatload of courage, but you don’t have to do it alone. Couragemakers is designed to encourage and rebel-rouse mission-driven doers, makers and world-shakers to spark a movement of women who are choosing themselves. Every Monday, Meg chats to unconventional couragemakers all over the world who share their stories, their advice and their dreams as we have honest conversations about everyday courage, living a wholehearted life and dream chasing. We’ve figured out what we don’t want in life, now we’re figuring out what we do want. And we talk about the things that make us feel on fire as well as the monsters that hide under our beds. Couragemakers is brought to you by Meg Kissack of That Hummingbird Life. Because everything changes when you believe you matter. Let’s shake things up together. Warning: This podcast contains courage, vulnerability and a desire to leave the world a brighter place than how we found it.

Hello Couragemakers! This week I’m so excited to share with you my conversation with Tamara Burgess!

 

Tamara calls herself a bit of a "digital doer". She owns a writing and marketing business based in the UK. Tamara started freelancing a few years ago after she left her corporate career to move to Japan and start travel writing – and things have progressed from there! Tamara love having bullshit-free discussions about controversial topics with an open heart and the four things she loves the most are being outside exploring something green, listening to people, idea sharing and laughing so much that she cries.

 

And a bullshit-free discussion definitely happens during this episode! We dive into so many thing during this episode from Tamara's journey from growing up and only seeing herself as a mathematician and not creative to leaving the corporate world and moving to Japan and starting a freelance career in writing and marketing, the myth that every has it all figured out and finding time in your time to do the things that bring you joy.

 

We have a great discussion about self awareness, prejudice and judgement, attitudes to money as a creative and the problems we both share with the minimalist movement.

 

This episode is really about giving yourself permission to be yourself, embracing the things that make you you and really getting to know yourself. Tamara’s ability to tell it as it is is so refreshing and she shares so much practical wisdom from her own journey about accepting yourself where you are right now. If you’re craving a a shitload of encouragement, a good laugh and really bullshit-free conversation about the reality of creating a life you love, this episode is for you.

 

Enjoy the show Couragemakers!

  • Les Brown quote -“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.”

About Meg & That Hummingbird Life

I’m Meg and I’m the host of Couragemakers and founder of That Hummingbird Life. I’m an INFJ creative and multipassionate who has a bit of a notebook and post-it note obsession, loves foot-stomping country music and likes her hot chocolate with way too much chocolate.

 

I started Couragemakers because I wanted to create a platform for passionate and unconventional women to have honest conversations and to share their stories, struggles and dreams. The intention behind this podcast is to inspire and encourage creative and mission-driven women to live a wholehearted life and follow the beat of their drum.

 

When I’m not recording episodes, writing bullshit-free, very vulnerable and encouraging Sunday emails to fellow couragemakers (join the party here!) or making new friends with the wonderful guests, you can find me working on all manners of magic over at That Hummingbird Life. THL is the online home for unconventional creatives and multipassionates who want to show up unapologetically and intentionally as who they are, and really own, live and share their many stories. It’s made for couragemakers who have so much great shit to give the world and want to leave their mark but have too much self doubt standing in the way!
