Joy is infectious — it lifts people up, brings people together and can spread like wildfire. It has a ripple effect. The same way a bad mood can rub off on you and the people around you — it can happen with joy, too.
Joy can influence hearts and minds that surround you. And this joy is becoming a greater factor in job hunting. In fact, millennials are craving it. That’s what Shabnam Mogharabi, CEO of SoulPancake and Limeade Engage 2019 keynote speaker believes.
WHO IS SHABNAM MOGHARABI?
Shabnam Mogharabi is the CEO of entertainment company SoulPancake. She co-founded the company with actor Rainn Wilson (who you might remember from the hit TV show “The Office”) to create daily positive, socially conscious videos about human connection. As CEO, she’s responsible for steering the company’s vision, safeguarding its mission, and supercharging its growth past its current community of 10M fans online and nearly 1B video views.
As a sought-after public speaker, Mogharabi has an impressive track record of creating content that matters and is the co-author of the New York Times bestselling book “SoulPancake: Chew on Life’s Big Questions.”
HERE ARE THREE REASONS WHY WE LOVE SHABNAM MOGHARABI:
1. Shabnam Mogharabi believes hearts and minds matter.
She’s positive, inspirational and finds value in humor. Mogharabi focuses on creating uplifting movements with content that help people find their purpose and belonging. She’s not about going “viral”, but more interested in the human connection and hitting the hearts and minds of people.
2. Shabnam Mogharabi is always up for a challenge.
With traditional journalism on the decline, Mogharabi finds new outlets and technology geared toward modern communication. She believes her relentlessness and persistence are key factors to her success. Just like our Limeade value “Anything is Possible”, Mogharabi isn’t afraid to take risks and dream big.
3. Shabnam Mogharabi believes joy has the power to change the world.
Mogharabi was looking for a better way to share thoughtful and inspirational stories — and with the help of Wilson, SoulPancake was born. Stories such as Kid President showcase the power of joyful and optimistic storytelling. She’s helped lead this shift online toward happiness, which as a result has started movements, charity donations and even caused change in how teachers conduct their classrooms.
