123: Shirley Serban – Creating what you love

123: Shirley Serban - Creating what you love

Shirley is a primary school principal in New Zealand, and has been singing and songwriting on the side for many years. When the pandemic started, she started writing songs about it to destress herself. When she saw that others appreciated them, she continued creating what she loves!

In this episode, I sit down with Shirley to deep dive into creating content that spreads joy during challenging times and how she has found her passion to create. Shirley shares how she creates parodies, isn’t afraid of the copyright notice on her videos, and where her income can come from besides adsense.
