Hello Couragemakers and welcome to another fabulous episode of The Couragemakers Podcast! The week I’m so excited to chat with Mai-kee Tsang. Mai-kee is a Launch Strategist, Copywriter, Podcast Host & Coach who helps purpose-driven entrepreneurs to build their authority in business, and discover their Brand DNA so that they can thrive when they launch their signature courses. Outside of her 1-1 client work, she hosts The Quiet Rebels Podcast which is a dedicated space to help her listeners to create the courage to own their voice, message, and worth in both life and business - without having to be the loudest person in the room.
And when she’s not in work, you can find her trying to solve the Rubik's cube and resisting the call of her freezer to dig into Salted Caramel Ice cream.
In this week’s episode we’re really diving into the world of people-pleasing, shrugging off what other people expect of us and finding your intuition.
Mai-kee shares her the journey of from struggling with what she wanted to be when she grew up to starting her own business, how she learned to listen to her intuition, and how she became friends with fear.
We have a great conversation about the difference between internal and external validation and how imagination can be wielded as a source of good and how Mai-kee’s life changed when she stopped people pleasing.
This is such a practical episode and I love how Mai-kee shares a wonderful exercise on how to use your intuition to make decisions and the advice she has to give if you’ve ever been rejected by your community.
Before we begin, I want to let you know that this episode contains a very brief reference to sexual assault, so look after you and do what you need to do.
If you struggle with people pleasing, putting boundaries in place, letting go of other people’s expectations of you or you struggle to connect with intuition, this is the perfect episode for you!
Enjoy today’s show!

Things We Talked About
About your host, Meg Kissack + That Hummingbird Life
I’m Meg and I’m the host of Couragemakers and founder of That Hummingbird Life. I’m a coach for creative and multipassionate women, a writer and INFJ creative and multi-passionate 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 Sunday pep Talks to my wonderful Couragemakers community or working 1:1 with coaching clients, I'm usually covered in paint or walking my wonderfully weird cockapoo Merlin.
