Woman Up! S1 Ep 16 - Meg Kissack
Season 1, Ep. 16
My guest this week is Meg Kissack. Meg is the host of The Daily Pep! and The Couragemakers Podcast, and founder of The Rebel Rousers. She is a coach, writer and all-round rebel-rouser for fiercely creative, wildly multi-passionate & fabulously weird women She helps them show up in the world as their most courageous and authentic selves, do the epic shit only they can do and make/leave the world a brighter place. When she's not recording episodes, writing weekly BS-free Letters of Rebellion to her wonderful Rebel Rousers community or hosting workshops/group programmes, she can be found playing with colour, having adventures with Mr Meg and her wonderfully weird cockapoo Merlin and dreaming and scheming new ways to help people believe they matter.

Emine is a Feminist, and Activist, an Artist, a wife, a mother, a businessperson, and a wonderful, warm, human being. I am blessed and honoured to call her a friend.
