When I was on the Olympic podium all I was thinking about was the journey.
— Meagan Duhamel

About Meagan:

At the age of three my guest today Meagan Duhamel already had big dreams for her life. She probably didn’t realize that she would be winning multiple Olympic medals at that age but by the time she was 14 she was serious enough about her career that she convinced her parents to let her move from her hometown of Lively Ontario to Barrie. It wasn’t the easiest transition but she was determined to continue her training as a skater. She started out as a singles skater but then switched to pairs, having two different partners. In 2010, Meagan thought her career might be coming to an end when she was unable to qualify for the Olympics. But shortly after she was introduced to Eric Radford who at the time seemed like an unlikely match.

The two went on to become Canadian legends. In 2018 two-time world champions Meagan Duhamel and her partner Eric Radford captured their seventh consecutive Canadian title, becoming one of the most decorated Canadian pair teams in history. A month later, then went on to win a Gold medal in the team event in Py (NK) and a Bronze medal in the pairs event. They are known to push the limits of their sport by challenging themselves to be better. Their signature element include death spiral, and quad throws. 

Duhamel and Radford continue to push the limits of the sport and are always challenging themselves to be better. With signature elements including stunning death spirals and quad throws, the strong and consistent pair continue to raise the bar season after season.

Meagan lives in Boucherville QC with her husband Bruno Marcotte who coincidentally is also her coach. Meagan studied holistic/naturpathic health and became a certified holistic nurtitionist in 2012. She became a vegan in 2008 and loves to share her love for nutrition and health. She also has two rescue dogs Theo and Mootae.

Life is not always as we think it will be. It’s definitely not perfect even if others perceive it to be. I’m excited to share my conversation with Hannah Marks with you because it will inspire you to live your life to the fullest no matter what comes your way.

Her second born was only a few weeks old when she passed out after feeding. Her skin was ashy and grey and Hannah knew that something was just not right with her baby girl London Elizabeth. The news she got from the doctor was scary and unbelievable. If London didn’t have heart surgery immediately she would not last through the night. Within moments everything changed for Hannah and her husband Robbie.

Hannah Marks is an independent sales director with a skin care and cosmetics direct sales company, leading women for 15 years. She has been married to Robbie for 16 years and they have two beautiful children, Will 9 and London Elizabeth 4.

EP 054: Do you feel confident in your body?

A Conversation With Tania Kolesnik

About This Episode:

We always love having Tania on The Couragecast. There is something so magnetic about her personality and the way she communicates. During this episode, we get an opportunity to talk about 'body confidence' and what that really means to us. 

A few months back Tania posted a beautiful photo of herself in a two-piece swimsuit. It was a sort of coming out for her -- a way to love herself on her 30th birthday. So many of her followers loved and commented on the post.

All too often we curate what we want others to see because we are afraid to show who we really are. I love that Tania has been unapologetic about who she is as a wife, mom, and entrepreneur. 

The conversation we have during this episode is just a starting point. I really believe we need to be talking more about how we can be confident as women - body, soul and spirit.
