I am so excited to welcome Shirin Etessam to the T&T Mic. Shirin is a multitalented business boss that has a wealth of business and personal experience to help guide us all back to our souls. From breakdown to breakthrough, Shirin is passionate about guiding us to a better, more fulfilled life. Shirin states, “From an early age, we’re taught that to be worthy, to find true happiness, and to be “somebody,” we have to accomplish many things. We become achievement machines, always grasping for the next big win to send a signal to the world—and to ourselves—that we’ve “made it.” Yet, it’s safe to say that most of us remain feeling at peace and unfulfilled despite checking all the boxes. According to Shirin, it’s because we’ve disconnected from our souls. Today we discuss her forthcoming book, FREE TO BE, a unique, easy-to-digest set of daily exercises to help us reconnect with our souls and begin a journey towards fulfillment in just six short weeks. From brain and heart detox to guiding us through rewriting our personal story, the lessons found in the book are those Shirin has used with major corporate clients including Apple, ABC, BBC, Virgin, Intel, and more. Shirin shares her personal journey that can inspire us all to take control back, seek our own version of happy- and do less!
Soul searching and questioning our own happiness. Breakdown to breakthrough. Finding the inspiration to pivot. Society vs. reality. Generational narrative and living in the now. Taking charge of your mental and physical health. LGBTQIA+. The Film industry then and now. Doing less and feeling more. Living unapologetically.
177. Reclaim Your Soul
