Hello Couragemakers and welcome to episode 55 of The Couragemakers Podcast!
This week, I couldn’t be more excited to share with you this episode with Monica Wisdom Tyson
Monica is a St Louis woman and describes herself as an analog girl in a digital world. She is a Chief Storyteller and Visibility Strategist, teaching the elements of a great story and ways to amplify a story to communities and believes that your story is power. Generation X and a self confessed Trekkie, Monica loves live music, long conversations and travelling around the world meeting people where they are.
During this episode, Monica really honestly shares her story, from dealing with a difficult childhood, struggling with depression, going on a spiritual journey, travelling the world and her various different careers including being a cosmetologist, interviewing celebrities and director of operations for several magazines.
We really dive into the genius of imagination, being careful about what you feel your soul and how naps are seriously underrated.
We talk about embracing the darkness as well as the light, being still and just how important our dreams are.
This episode is great source of inspiration if you’re dealing with dreamshitters, if you’re struggling to engage in a positive way in a space of chaos and if you need the courage to own and share your story. It’s also a great episode if you need reminding of just how much power you do have.
Monica is the living definition of what it means to really own your story and release yourself from shame and start living your life. There will be laughter and there will be tears, and I know you’re going to get so much from this beautiful episode.
Enjoy the show!

Monica believes storytelling is as essential to our lives as breathing. It is how we learn, grow and evolve. Stories have shaped every part of our growth whether it is a song, book or the wisdom of our elders. We are cultivated by stories through our listening and our learning. Stories not only connect us with our audience but release the vulnerability within ourselves.

Things We Talked About
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 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!
