How to Make It In the Cutthroat Industry of Show Business

I was really nervous about this one. Kathy Griffin is a comedy legend, but she’s not necessarily known for being nice. Which is a shame, because it turns out she is really nice! She was so warm and fun and open and honest and she even prepared notes about her comedy empire and different aspects of her business for our interview. Isn’t that crazy? She prepared notes for me?!  I was floored. Griffin came from behind and made it big in not only a cutthroat industry but a male-dominated one at that. If you’re an entertainer or writer or trying to build your personal brand, you’ll really enjoy her lessons for us!
