Another Fabulous Confabulation.
It was so wonderful to chat with Shirley Williams, who is an Emmy nominated producer and supervising producer at Refinery29. FYI, this Fabulous Confabulation was before COVID and social distancing, so I was able to speak to her at the Refinery29 office. We chatted about what her job entails, the importance of creating your own work, her production company, Willie B. Productions, the challenges she faces being a woman of color in the industry, and so much more.
I loved that Shirley mentioned the three questions asks herself when she is feeling insecure or doubtful.
- What am I doing?
- Why am I here? For what purpose?
- What are my intentions?
It is super important to check in with yourself and reassure yourself that you have a purpose and are here for a reason. So when you’re feeling unsure or insecure about why you were voted to be class president in school or cast as the lead of the play, remember how hard you’ve worked and how deserving you are for all that you accomplish.
I hope you enjoy this Fabulous Confabulation with Shirley. It was super fun.
