#118 Estelle, Kym Oliver and Yrsa Daley-Ward on Owning Your Talent


Welcome back to Wanna Be- the podcast takes you from where you are now to where you wanna be in 30 minutes or less.

I’m Imriel Morgan, Founder of Content is Queen, a podcast agency and club for ambitious podcasters with phenomenal taste, high expectations and a desire to sound as good as I do now.

Thank you so much for taking the time to be here! Wanna Be’s focus is to help you take consistent action to build a successful life and career in the creative and entertainment industry.

Coming up are three phenomenal guests who are about to help you:
Find out how stop repelling the things you want
Learn how to take your influences and create something unique and distinct.
Discover why nobody can be left behind in the quest to build a just world

Let’s get into it!

Today I’m super excited to bring you Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Estelle.
You probably know Estelle already but I’m going to introduce her anyway. Estelle is one of the leading voices in Black British RnB. She became infamously known for her chart-topping song American Boy featuring Kanye West. But she’s been knocking out huge hits including 1980, Come Over and Free to name a few. She’s also the voice of Garnet in the multi-award-winning Cartoon Network Steven Universe.

The focus of this interview is to help you explore all of your talents and interests. The difference between apprehension and being scared. And how to use different influences to create unique and distinct work.

Do you know how hard it was for me to stay cool! Estelle is iconic to me so to sit down and talk to her about her music that was literally the soundtrack of my teenage years is so wild! She is EVERYTHING! YOu can catch Estelle on Twitter and Instagram @EstelleDarlings She also hosts The Estelle Show on Apple Music so check it out.

We’ll return to Estelle in just a minute. I have got to interrupt this message to introduce you to the baddest baby girl in the game. This is someone I regularly look up to and I’m constantly inspired by and in awe of. Listen to every word she has to say….

If you do NOTHING else today, I encourage you to follow The Triple Cripples on Twitter and Instagram @TripleCripples. They are literally doing the work and your support is necessary. Now back to Estelle...

Before we wrap up I’ve brought back Yrsa Daley Ward the author of 'bone' and 'the terrible'. Yrsa’s advice is food for thought, especially right now.

Thanks Yrsa! That’s a wrap, thank you so much for listening to the end. I hope this half an hour has been a calming and joyful part of your day.

I’d like to encourage you to think about one person who needs a little joy and calm and share this episode with them right now! If you want extended interviews, screenshot and share this episode to your Instagram stories and tag @contentisqueenhq.

Until next time…. Byeeee
