Episode Description

Heidi-Marie Ferren is a singer/actress, writer/spokesperson who has played Wonder Woman on HBO’s hit T.V. show “Bored to Death” and also served our Armed Forces across the globe as Miss USO. I caught up with her at Digital Hollywood where we talked about her latest project involving female driven content called, “Woman Enough,” and stories from her service as Miss USO. Heidi models how to show up in service yet also how to be brave and break the rules. The Women In Hollywood:Warriors from Within series is a collection of short and powerful profiles of women doing great work in Hollywood entertainment from interviews I did while broadcasting live from the Digital Hollywood event in May 2018.

Performing artists are the imagination mavericks, creative pioneers, and shamans of today and here you’ll discover the inspiration and expertise to find your edge and explore greatness.

Host Holly Shaw, a Bestselling Author and Creativity Coach to Emmy award winning and Grammy nominated artists, includes spotlight coaching sessions and conversations with artists and experts, as she shares her wisdom from a lifetime of performing, as a former SAG actor, dancer, choreographer and director, invoking an inspiring atmosphere that’s overthrowing the stereotype of the starving artist one episode at a time.

Covering an array of topics, from the more esoteric like sex and creativity or shamanic performance techniques, to the more down-to-earth, like how to overcome stage fright, creative blocks, and promote yourself as an artist, there is constant reinforcement of the idea that a creative mind, opened to its own genius, has the power to change the world.
