Ep. 178: Ask Your Lawyer And Taking Out Your Own Trash

Happier in Hollywood - October 8, 2020 - 26:58

How does Sarah’s new ritual of taking her trash to the local dump relate to being a writer in Hollywood? Liz and Sarah reveal that they’ve recently realized they need to “take out their own trash” when it comes to having difficult work conversations — rather than letting their representatives have the conversations for them. In their new Ask Your Lawyer segment, Liz and Sarah talk to entertainment attorney extraordinaire, JR McGinnis, about whether or not it’s a good idea to start a project before the deal is closed. Finally, this week’s Hollywood Hack will increase productivity: Push yourself to do one more thing.If you want to order a Happier In Hollywood rainbow Silipint travel cup with lid, email happierinhollywood@gmail.com for more information.
