Hello and welcome to episode 23 of Couragemakers! Today I'm speaking to the wonderful Angela Ford. Angela is a Digital Marketing Strategist, passionate about helping multi-passionate creatives spend more time doing work they love. She also is a fantasy author, entertaining young and old alike with fantasy adventures and non-stop action.
In this episode we really dive into how Angela wanted to do something fun and meaningful with her life and her desire to make a difference. She shares her journey from writing novels from the age of 12 and being in a band with her sisters, to working as a digital marketing strategist and being a fantasy author.
We have some great conversations about dealing with realists while chasing down your dreams, how books and creativity help us develop as a person and how life isn't about fulfilling what other people think you should do.
This is a great episode if you worry about living life with regrets, if you want to hear great advice for getting over the paralysis that we sometimes feel when starting projects and some great practical tips for people struggling to find their values and what they want to do.
Angela is an incredible storyteller with a real sense of adventure and curiosity and I could have listened to Angela tell stories all day! I know you're going to love her story and get so much out of this episode!

I'm Meg and I'm the host of Couragemakers and founder of That Hummingbird Life. 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.
When I'm not recording episodes and making new friends with the wonderful guests, you can find me working on all manners of magic over at That Hummingbird Life, sending free self care checks ins to hundreds of women every Sunday and helping my clients build brands they love as a graphic designer. I'm currently based in London, and getting ready for my round the world adventure with Mr. Meg starting August 2016. Don't worry the podcast isn't going anywhere!
