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 and welcome to episode 25 of Couragemakers!

 

This week I'm talking with Meghan Maydel. Meghan is a brand + biz strategist who helps creative badasses who've decided they're ready to stop playing small to get real with their biz, craft a brand + biz that doesn't suck, and grow a tribe of fans who can't get enough. When she isn’t typing away at her laptop you can find her co-hosting her podcast, Blazing Creative, with her awesome co-host Steph Schertz, planning her next Halloween craft, and/or having a good laugh with her hubby and 2 fur babies, Yadi & Guinness.

 

In this episode Meghan takes us on a whirlwind journey of her creative entrepreneurial journey so far (starting at age 12 making friendship bracelets, working for  one of the Ad Agency's “top 10 agencies to watch in the U.S, to starting her own thing and becoming her own boss.)

 

We really dive into how nearly having the rug pulled out from under her feet led her to start her  business, the growing pains that come with starting your own thing and the great and fascinating history of side hustles Meghan has had!

 

Meghan has great advice for dealing with dreamshitters, some fantastic advice on how to set boundaries so you can enjoy your life as well as getting your work done and is a great example of a multi-passionate who has found a way to combine her interests, skills and strengths to do work that fulfils her and sustains her.

 

Meghan is so interesting to talk to and this is a fantastic episode if you do your own thing or are thinking of starting your own business, and if you want to hear a really honest conversation about what it means to go out on your own and give the world what you've got.

 

I know you're going to love this episode!

 

Enjoy the show!

About Meg & That Hummingbird Life

 

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!
