Liz and Sarah share suggestions from their Facebook group about dressing up for Zoom Halloween. Their favorite idea? Be a floating head! Then they discuss a key negotiating insight they learned from Michael Melcher’s podcast, Career Stewardship — many of us accept an inferior deal because we have a dire need for closure. In Take A Hike, Liz and Sarah talk about how “reinstituting one thing” can help fight pandemic fatigue. Sarah is back to not eating carbs before 11am, and Liz is weighing herself every day again. In Hits & Bombs, Sarah gives Violet a Hit and Liz has a reading Bomb. Finally, this week’s Hollywood Hack is an easy way to get your hair Zoom-ready: Overtone temporary color.
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.
ABOUT HAPPIER IN HOLLYWOOD
Hosted by veteran television writers/producers/showrunners Liz Craft and Sarah Fain, who’ve been friends since high school and writing partners for 17 years, Happier in Hollywood lives at the intersection of friendship and work.
Whether you live in Hollywood, Dollywood, or somewhere in between, Liz and Sarah demystify Tinseltown by making career and personal struggles universal. Guided by blind optimism and a Midwestern work ethic, Liz and Sarah have survived and thrived in Hollywood’s male-dominated entertainment industry. Along the way they’ve learned a lot about kicking ass, kissing ass, and office yoga.
Happier in Hollywood is part of Gretchen Rubin’s The Onward Project , a family of podcasts full of concrete, actionable ideas for how you can make your life happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative.
