In this episode, Liz and Sarah share a wonderfully validating email from a listener who took their advice and had a professional headshot taken! Then they put in a call to their old friend, former high-powered film producer JEANNE ALLGOOD. After working on over 23 Hollywood films (including Terminator Salvation and We Are Marshall, which she executive produced), Jeanne decided move with her family to a ranch in Montana. Jeanne shares what motivated her to pack up and leave it all behind– and shares some tips for happier living that she’s picked up along the way. Also, Liz and Sarah make a Meditation Declaration — a promise to meditate 10 minutes a day, everyday– and they’re asking you to hold them accountable. In this week’s Hollywood Hack, their assistant Boafoa makes a case for Google Drive. And finally, Liz tells how a fight for a parking spot led to this week’s friendly celebrity sighting.
A podcast about how to be happier, healthier, saner, more creative, more successful, and more productive in a back-biting, superficial, chaotic, unpredictable, and fundamentally insane world.
