• 014 – Giving Yourself Permission to Write a Book

    Hey, welcome to another episode of The Smash Your Own Ceiling Podcast.

    Today I have the pleasure of sharing a fantastic chat with Safiya Robinson.

    Safiya is a storytelling coach, author, blogger, editor and storylistener, and an island girl from Barbados, and the human behind the #WritingBlackJoy project to centre and celebrate the joyful stories of Black authors.

    Her books include Everything is a Thing – my journey to leading a truly authentic life, Lessons in Love and Wellbeing for Dentists – thrive in your practice and every area of your life, available through my shop and a twice monthly newsletter that you can sign up for here.

    As a coach and editor, she helps clients create content that connects with their audience right where they are. And she loves working with Black writers to bring their joyful stories into the world.

    In addition, she is a keen world traveller who uses her writing to explore her experiences and philosophy on life, sprinkled with fun, humour and big love from a small island.

    In her spare time you’ll find her enjoying island sunsets, baking delicious treats, spending time with friends or family, and making corny jokes.

    In this episode we talk about writing your first book; the development journey behind the writing process, the pitfalls and the excitement and how you should always give yourself permission to write your book.

    Safiya also chose Upstream – How to solve problems before they happen by Dan Heath as her book that she’d love to recommend.

    And we’d also like to give a shout out to our good friend and book editor Kris Emery for the introduction.

    To connect with Safiya you can find her in the following places:
