The Couragemakers Podcast | Encouragement, Inspiration & Rebel Rousing for Mission Driven Doers Makers & Shakers |
About This Show
Couragemakers is a weekly podcast for creative and passionate,mission-driven doers, makers and world-shakers designed to inspire and encourage fellow couragemakers, and spark a movement of women who are choosing themselves. 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.
Every Monday, unconventional couragemakers all over the world 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 Couragemakers, and welcome to episode 47 of The Couragemakers Podcast! Before we begin this week, I just wanted to let you know that the podcast is going to be taking a 3 week hiatus, while I completely revamp That Hummingbird Life and get 2017’s episodes up and running! I am so excited for the guests that I have already booked for this year and we have some real corkers coming up! If you fancy yourself as a guest, you can apply online by visiting thathummingbirdlife.com/apply. Couragemakers will be back on the 27th February with a special first year anniversary episode which I’m still slightly shitting myself about! Roles are going to be reversed as Mr. Meg is going to be interviewing me for my own Couragemakers episode. I have absolutely no idea what he has planned but if you have any questions you’d like me to answer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (and if you put Mr. Meg in the subject line, i promise not to look!) I might be putting some solo episodes out between now and then, but if not, now is a great opportunity to look through the past episodes and uncover some real gems and rediscover some old favourites! Whew. Now onto today’s show. This week I’m speaking to Heather Jabornik. Heather is an East Coast writer, hope-raiser, and dream chaser based in Southern California. Heather is the founder of Hiya Tootsie!, and fragrance line Candy Ass. Heather is a lover of spoken word poetry, rock and roll, glitter, and gunmetal and a self confessed fangirl of Tom Waits. In this episode, Heather shares her journey, from working as a missionary in the porn industry to founding a website and perfume that inspires women to go after their dreams. She shares her journey from reaching complete burnout, to finding work that sustains her own wellbeing as well as other people’s. We dive into the vulnerability of putting yourself in the public eye, how we can sometimes hide behind our need to help
