What’s the part of your morning routine you’ll never skip?
Every Sunday morning I listen to a classic episode of American Top 40, hosted by the legendary Casey Kasem. Who wouldn't want to hear every top 40 song for every week between 1970-1988 narrated by Shaggy from Scooby-Doo?
What’s a piece of business advice that’s stuck with you over the years?
Never be the drunkest person in the room. In all my years working as a producer, I can't say enough how this bit of wisdom (disguised as a wisecrack) from a former boss/mentor has served me well in my career.
What’s your favorite tool for self-education?
A favorite go to over the years for me is Lynda.com (now known as LinkedIn Learning.)
What’s a favorite productivity hack?
I start every workday writing out a detailed To Do list. I've found when working with several clients on multiple projects, it's not enough to jot down one or two word task descriptors as if I'm making a grocery list. So "Call XYZ" becomes "Call XYZ re: 123."
