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.

057: Saying Yes To Yourself & Your Creativity with Emily Scott
5 days ago
Hello and welcome to Episode 57 of The Couragemakers Podcast! This week, it is my pleasure to have a good chat with Emily Scott. Emily is a storyteller and artist. She writes paranormal fantasy fiction featuring rebellious protagonists dedicated to knocking down their boundaries. Like any good California girl, she loves the beach and believes she should have been born a mermaid. In this episode, Emily shares her creative process, from how she began writing as a child purely as a way to communicate and be understood, to how she writes, finding inspiration and plots her novel. We really dive into coming to terms with your own natural process, honouring the way you do things and turning down the noise of what everyone else thinks you should be doing. We have a great chat about the relationship between money and art, and how we can view art as something we need to support instead of expecting it to support us. We also dive into what Emily calls re-writing her realities - examining different parts of your life and what you think you should be doing, compared to what would work for you and how important this is. Emily shares an excellent practical exercise for anyone who struggles with people pleasing and saying yes to themselves. This is a wonderfully honest and practical episode and essential listening for any creative struggling to give themselves permission to do it their own way, and for anyone who needs to say a huge yes to themselves for once. Emily is a joy to chat to and I’m so excited to share our conversation. Enjoy the show! About Emily Emily Scott is a storyteller and artist.
