Today’s guest is Shabnam Mogharabi, a social media executive, award-winning journalist, and NY Times bestselling author. She is the CEO and Executive Producer of SoulPancake, an award-winning media and entertainment company founded by actor Rainn Wilson - also known as Dwight from “The Office.” 

Similar to this podcast, SoulPancake explores ‘Life’s Big Questions.’ This year Fast Company named SoulPancake one of the “The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies of 2015 in Video.” Their mission is to spread joy and celebrate the human experience by producing and curating uplifting, thought-provoking content that is distributed on television, online, at live events, and through branded engagements. Talk about an inspirational intention. In a world where media can be incredibly negative SoulPancake is a breath of fresh air and Shabnam is at the heart of it. 

If you haven’t heard of SoulPancake - check out their YouTube channel. They explore topics like joy and gratitude and what really makes us happy. I sometimes binge watch their videos if I’m in a bad mood and I instantly feel better. Check out the links to my favorites below. 

 

In today’s show we explore:

  • Positive psychology & the science of happiness 
  • The power of vulnerability
  • How to fall in love with anyone
  • Why you need to put your phone away 
  • The imposter syndrome 
  • How she inspires creativity in her staff 
  • And much much more

 

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • How Shabnam left an unfulfilling career in journalism in Washington, DC to partner with Soul Pancake
  • Shabnam discusses a few feature programs: The Science of Happiness, The Gratitude Project, My Last Days
  • The value of gratitude lists, breathing exercises, and restorative relationships
  • How SoulPancake inspires creativity in their workplace
  • What does mindfulness mean?
  • Why are we here? “To be of service to others, in big or small ways.”
  • Balance: the key to accepting the duality of our own insignificance and the desire to be impactful
