Ep. 274: Being Mindful Of STUFF — Stress, Time, Uncertainty, Fear, & Fatigue

Happier in Hollywood - August 11, 2022 - 26:26

Liz and Sarah share some key takeaways from the excellent Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging training they recently attended, including how their personal identifiers impact their leadership styles — in both positive and negative ways. They also discuss the concept of STUFF, which stands for Stress, Time, Uncertainty, Fear, & Fatigue. When we experience STUFF it can be harder to effectively process opinions different from our own — but there ARE ways to make sure everyone still gets heard. In The Mailroom, Liz and Sarah answer a question about the TV trend of rebooting shows that have been off the air for less than a decade. Finally, this week’s Hollywood Hack applies to everyone everywhere: Remember to be a tourist in your own hometown.

About The Show

Veteran TV writers Liz Craft and Sarah Fain demystify Hollywood by making career and personal struggles universal. Friends since high school and writing partners for 17 years, Liz and Sarah have survived and thrived in Tinseltown’s male-dominated entertainment industry, guided by blind optimism and a Midwestern work ethic. Along the way they've learned a lot about kicking ass, kissing ass, and office yoga.
