Hello, hello Couragemakers and welcome to episode 88 of The Couragemakers Podcast!
It is so nice to be back into the rhythm of things! Since we moved I’m really starting to realise how important habits and rhythms are to me and am loving going for daily walks and have got into a really natural rhythm with writing snarky posts on Medium every day as part of Elle Luna’s 100 Day Project. I wanted to share that with you because I know sometimes we know there’s something we could add to our lives that would change our day, and I just want to say if I can do it, you can do it to! So this might be something to have a think about as you listen to this week’s episode!
For this week’s episode I’m talking to Nicole Liloia.
Nicole is a former social worker turned accidental entrepreneur. After suffering severe burnout in the non-profit world and refusing to ever return to a 9-5, she took time to travel and volunteer in South America. She started her first business in 2013 and has been helping women stop wasting time and start making more money since then. Nicole provides strategy + mentorship to women entrepreneurs who want to scale their business and income through multiple income streams. Nicole loves spending time with her nephews, Apothic wine, and never misses a Taco Tuesday.
During our conversation, we’re diving into Nicole’s journey of leaving the world of therapy and social work and starting her own business.
We really dive how women can support fellow women to leave the comfort zone, the problems with automatic thinking and going after things when you want them, not just when you need them.
Nicole shares great tips on how to set goals, we dive into money stories and what happens when we give ourselves permission to go big.
If you struggle with setting goals, are sick of comparing yourself to others or you know it’s time to play big and get out of your comfort zone but find the idea of it terrifying, this episode is for you!
Have a wonderful day, Couragemakers, enjoy the show and remember: everything changes when you believe you matter.

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!
