Shannon Joy Rodgers stays ready
Ignore them if it’s online. Heckled live? Just think of something smart and don’t punch down.
I loved sketch and SNL, so I just found where those people studied and went from there!
Leaving situations/teams/shows when they stopped being fun or weren’t serving a positive purpose in my life, and then going towards the joy.
Hmm, I don’t know if it’s advice I’ve gotten, but staying consistent leads to success. Staying ready.
Anything too rigorous. “You HAVE to do xyz to succeed…”
I laugh in their face. Then punch them in the aforementioned face.
You’re usually second-guessed and questioned a lot, so may as well do whatever you want and say what you want to get what you need.
Do whatever YOU want and trust your gut! No one knows what works or why. Having passion for your work is better than doing what’s “correct” or trendy for the time.
