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.

Hi there and welcome to episode 28 of Couragemakers.

 

This week I’m talking with Kate Evans. Kate describers herself as an overly excitable creative introvert with a peanut butter problem. She works as a Communications Manager for a self advocacy organisation for adults who have a learning disability and she’s passionate about empowering people to live their best lives - whether that's her friends, readers of her personal blog, or the people she works with. Making things and writing keep Kate sane, and she can usually be found in front of a laptop or with yarn wrapped around her fingers.

 

In this episode we dive into Kate’s journey as an activist and how she dealt with burnout and found work that sustains her as well as serves other people, how finding work that fits your values is essential and how acts of everyday bravery need to be celebrated.

 

Kate shares how she has started to become really honest about her mental health online and great advice for anyone wanting to be more honest with those around them about their mental health. She also shares her unique approach to blogging;  how doing things for yourself can just be for yourself and the freedom that comes with doing big and unexpected things.

 

This is a great episode if you struggle with being someone who wants to help the world and look after yourself at the same time and if you want to become more vulnerable and open in your life but don’t know where to begin. I absolutely loved chatting to Kate, our stories align in a lot of ways and I have so much respect for her and how brave she is about her life on her blog.  I know you’re going to get so much hope from 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!
