Episode 26: From Personal Struggles to a Global Mission with Jessica Villa


Listen on your browser now:



Jessica Villa is the Founder and CEO of the growing non-profit organization, Superbands. The mission of this non-profit is to raise global awareness on mental illness in today’s youth and empower those struggling through music. Through her own personal experience battling depression, Jessica is passionate about Superbands because she wants to create the online community of music lovers that she once longed for as a teen.

When she isn’t working on Superbands, Jessica enjoys going to concerts, binge-watching various Netflix series, traveling, and of course, snuggling with her (adorable!) puppy, Jax. With so many big goals for her life, Jessica is all about following her intuition to create the life she has always dreamed about.

When I'm not recording episodes, writing bullshit-free Sunday pep Talks to my wonderful Couragemakers community or working 1:1 with clients, I'm usually covered in paint and thinking of imaginative ways of hide my would-be dog from my landlord. 


I’m Meg and I’m the host of Couragemakers and founder of That Hummingbird Life. I’m an INFJ creative and multipassionate who has a bit of a notebook and post-it note obsession, loves foot-stomping country music and likes her hot chocolate with way too much chocolate.

I started Couragemakers because I wanted to create a platform for passionate and unconventional women to have honest conversations and to share their stories, struggles and dreams. The intention behind this podcast is to inspire and encourage creative and mission-driven women to live a wholehearted life and follow the beat of their drum.
