Happier in Hollywood - June 13, 2019 - 21:58

Everyone gets knocked down once in awhile— the question is, what do you do AFTER you get knocked down? If you’re resilient, you get back up! Liz and Sarah discuss the brilliance of resilience and share how working in the entertainment business has helped them develop their own resilience muscles. Then in a very special Take A Hike, executive producer Chuck Reed’s mom, Michelene Reed Laski, reveals why June 13th is a cherished anniversary for her Hollywood family— and why every family should find a reason to celebrate. This week’s Hollywood Hack comes from Robot Chick co-founder Matt Senreich: Ask for favors!

Along the way they've learned a lot about kicking ass, kissing ass, and office yoga.
