Ep. 112: Shop Your Closet (And Other Strategies to Spend Less)
Liz and Sarah discuss the importance of saving money in Hollywood’s perennially unstable gig economy. Hint: avoid mindless spending. And shop your closet! Then they share a listener question about fertility and the problem/dilemma of waiting to start a family. Have they come to terms with having only children? Liz offers two Hollywood Hacks from entertainment attorney Michael Donaldson’s WGA workshop on negotiating: make the first offer, and negotiate in the other person’s space. Finally, a Netflix celebrity sighting (Gary Oldman) and a near-miss (Brad Pitt)!Rakuten: http://www.rakuten.comHer Money: https://www.hermoney.com/t/podcasts/Offer Up:https://offerup.com/Let Go: https://us.letgo.com/enEgg freezing: https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/egg-freezing/about/pac-20384556Michael Donaldson: http://www.donaldsoncallif.com/attorneys/Gary Oldman: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000198/Brad Pitt: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000093/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1Photo by Fabian Blank on Unsplash

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.
