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.

085: Life As A Creative Process with Anabel Roque Rodríguez
< 1 day ago
Hello Couragemakers and welcome to episode 85 of The Couragemakers Podcast. This week I am so excited to have Anabel Roque Rodríguez back on the show! Anabel is an independent art historian, curator, and writer based currently in Switzerland. She has curated exhibitions in Ecuador, Munich, and Switzerland and works in art education formats at Art Karlsruhe or Art Basel, as well as in the institutional museum sector.

In this episode we dive into the notion of nourishing your ambition with self care, the connotations power and money have and how we can self-sabotage as creatives and talk about the importance of becoming your own best negotiator. We dive into creative work as labour, what Anabel has learned from a year and a half of conducting success in the arts interviews with women and the importance of empathy in our creative work. This is such a fantastic practical episode, and I love how much Anabel was willing to share her own process with us, from her practice of kindness and gentleness towards herself, the one question that has been really important to her lately and her fantastic reflection system she has built for herself. This conversation is a fantastic reminder that we’re all a work in process and that we all get to define success for ourselves. Anabel has evolved so much of
