Action item: Don’t wait for people to hand you anything. The entertainment industry respects people who get out there and make things happen.

This Episode Briefed:

  • Going solo or partnering up with another person is not necessarily “brave”…it’s more like if someone who falls off a ship and decides to swim to shore. It’s not so much brave than it is a survival instinct.
  • The difference between me and another entertainment attorney is that I do the deal and know how it’ll play out. I have lived with it for years. Most other attorneys do the deal and just walk away.
  • Best part of practice: setting my own schedule and having great autonomy. Worst part: having to make a living and pay bills when some months are great and others not so great.
  • Advice: learn different skills and be a more well-rounded attorney by taking various courses in school not just subject-specific ones. These classes will make you more valuable.
  • It’s common in the entertainment business to wear different hats.
  • You need to be a well-rounded human being and have different non-legal interests. If all you do is one thing, you’ll totally hate your life.
