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.

About Meg Kissack & That Hummingbird Life

 

I'm Meg and I'm the host of Couragemakers. I started this podcast 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.

Today's Couragemaker is Jordan Gage: writer & co-founder of Impractical Dreaming. We're diving into how it feels to say no to things that no longer serve us, feeling like we have to have everything together and how a simple 'me too' can change the world.

 

Jordan is a twenty-something writer currently living in Nashville, Tennessee. When she’s not dreaming of writing and speaking truth to women across the world or new tattoos, she’s probably listening to Harry Potter audiobooks and co-leading Impractical Dreaming, an online community whose vision is to see every woman on the planet free from the bonds of shame, insecurity, and fear by having hard conversations in a space of unyielding empathy. Jordan loves discovering more about Jesus, and would appreciate knowing who allowed her to become an adult because she believes they made a terrible mistake.

Things we talked about during today's show

 

 

  • Showing your true self with the people around you, and sharing your struggles

Welcome to the first episode of Couragemakers! This week I'm joined by Amber Thomas, blogger, small business owner & an all round creator of things. If you're struggling with being creative or facing creative resistance, this is a great one for you! 

Amber Thomas is an adventurer and homebody, a surprising misfit and devoted hopeful, a cocktail of colour and grace, born and raised in a small town laying happily under the Californian sun. Amber describes herself  as  more contradiction than constant; always seeking the space where life can bloom. When life fell apart, her art brought together the many jagged pieces in a beautiful array. Though she says her story is flawed, messy and all the brands of imperfect, art affords her the amazing opportunity to accentuate the greatness that is life.

Things we talked about during today's show

 

  • Being trapped in a hamster wheel which is only a race with ourselves

  • The Painful 10 minutes (a fantastic technique to get your creative work started) allowing for time for being creative with no pressure

  • Shaking up your echo chamber

  • Being honest with yourself about your intentions

 

Books/Resources etc we mentioned during this episode

 

  • Sia - This is Acting (album)
  • "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." -- Pablo Picasso
