Creative Breakthrough

Creative Breakthrough where passion meets hustle. Find out how to take your creative passion to the next level.

Creative Breakthrough: Jump start your creative career

 

How do I elevate my creative passion to the next level?  How do I become a successful creative in entertainment, business, fashion, design, or the arts?  How do I leave my 9-5 job to pursue my passion full-time?  And the biggest question – can I make my dreams a reality?  Welcome to the Creative Breakthrough podcast where host Shereen Kassam aka FunnyBrownGirl will help you answer these questions by bringing you in-depth conversations with successful creative leaders of color, across TV, film, music, literature, and beyond.  Guests will share inspiration and real-life strategies for turning creative passion projects into full-time careers.  Shereen will also share stories and strategies that she used to step outside her 9-5 to become an internationally touring stand-up comedian, radio personality, actress, and now podcaster.  Hear from experts, get inspired, and drive your creative career forward! Join us on this journey to help each other win!

 

Creative Breakthrough is the first and only podcast to spotlight people of color who have scaled from passion project to profitable careers.  As a woman of color, I believe these are important stories to share and can bring inspiration and motivation to creatives on their journey.

 

Interviewees include creatives from Will Packer Productions, Queen Sugar, Nike, and iHeartMedia
