Episode 14: The Best of 2018 - Shereen Kassam | FunnyBrownGirl

Welcome back to another episode of the Creative Breakthrough!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend and had time to rest, relax, and spend time with your friends and family!

As 2018 comes to a close, I want to say thank you to all of you for listening, sharing, and subscribing!  Canada – I see you! We made the top 200 podcasts in Canada last week!

This week I decided to mash up all the best insight, stories, and advice from the past 13 episodes into one creativity crash course!

Before we get started – in 2 weeks – I have the pleasure of interviewing the New York Times Best-selling author Jasmine Darznik.  We will be talking about her career, advice she has for writers, as well as her two books

The Good Daughter: A memoir of my mother’s hidden life and Song of a Captive Bird.

If you are looking for a good book or two over the next few weeks, I highly suggest these two! They are quick and fast reads!  And will make the podcast episode much more fun!

2019 is full of amazing interviews! I am lucky enough to talk to James Lopez, the President of Will Packer Productions and Producer of the hit movie Girls Trip with Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, and Regina Hall.

I also get to talk to Chante Wayans of the Wayans Family, Aliya Tejpar a Michelin Star chef, Abi Varghese the TV producer and writer of Brown Nation, Creative Entrepreneur JG Ayodele and many more exciting and successful creatives!

I can’t wait to share these stories with you all!

Lastly, I wish you all a Happy New Year and all the success in the world! 2019 is our year!

Now let’s get started!!

In this episode, I mash up the best stories, insights, and advice from our 2018 interviews!

We hear advice, insights, and stories from Queen Sugar’s Tina Mabry, Internationally Touring Stand-up Comedian Maz Jobrani, Radio Personality and Podcaster Laura Diaz, NBC’s Outsourced and CBC’s Schitt’s Creek Rizwan Manji, Award-winning Vocalist Laurin Talese, and Jordan/Nike brand’s Precious Hannah!
