Episode 01: Meet Shereen Kassam aka FunnyBrownGirl - Shereen Kassam | FunnyBrownGirl


Welcome to Creative Breakthrough! Thank you for checking out this show! In this introduction episode, I share with you who I am and why I decided to start this show. I share with you my corporate journey, and how my career inspired me to pursue my creative passion and turn it into a profitable brand. I also talk about the inspiration of this podcast. I have spent countless hours looking for mentors and a network of creatives to provide advice, mentorship, and real-life strategies. And I have to admit it’s a struggle! So I decided to create a podcast where I interview well-known creative across TV, film, radio, literature, and beyond to learn first-hand how to take a creative passion project to full-time reality.
