A new and upcoming talent with literally YEARS of experience.
"We all have our time. It’s about knowing your voice and using it when you’re at your most knowledgeable"
I’m Serena Hussain, a Podcaster from London recording in my Croydon home studio. Over a period of nearly 20 years I’ve amassed a great deal of experience in entrepreneurship, content production, PR, publicity, marketing, journalism, digital media, and being a freelancing consultant for other entrepreneurs and small businesses. I chose to embark on establishing a platform and producing original content purely out of passion. I was lucky to figure out the landscape of podcasting and take great pride in producing every bit of content myself - from sound to visuals.
‘LIFE VOCABULARY’ captures in depth conversations and essential grey-area conversations with creatives, artists, and thought leaders of diverse descriptions. Out of that passion and dedication for producing weekly content for youtube, soundcloud, and my site www.lifevocabulary.com, I began to cultivate my own voice; building as I created - which is a process in itself. This creative process and path which many creators take is one which I promote and encourage in my blogs, vlogs, and now my own podcasting endeavours “The Serena Hussain Podcast” which runs alongside the Life Vocabulary podcast.
I began my first podcast in 2016 around the time they officially took-off, and have learnt much about how much time and attention it takes to build a brand, give rise to an idea, strategise as you create, and how powerful a podcast can be when wanting to build your own brand, your own brand voice and brand identity. This kind of brand building should not be taken for granted if successfully honed and crafted through sheer engagement consistently over a long period of time with your community and audience.
Creativity doesn’t have to mean without strategy or outcome; without goals or objectives; without a plan or progression. Absolutely not. It’s about knowing how to be smart since we know how to work hard as Creators in this new digital era.
I happened to create a lane for myself which had me speaking to and speaking with the same exact community of individuals, all hungry for more authentic information and the dissemination of it. We all adore Ted Talks and Speakers who reveal themselves. They share their stories and inspire others to progress by relating to a struggle or painful experience. There is great power in sharing this kind of content which is why I like to dig deep with those I podcast with in order to get to the delicious depths of a story.
I adore connecting with others, regardless of where you find yourselves in life. We have all been, and will be, exactly where you find yourself today. If you too have questions, opinions and perspectives which you would like to share, then let’s talk. EMAIL me.
I love initiating grey-area conversations, capturing them, and extracting stories from inspirational individuals. I started LIFE VOCABULARY (the podcast and site) to provide insight on cultural and creative matters. It's not about being academic, but more about having open conversations and sparking healthy debate.
