Social tips from the agents and books and games to keep you entertained

Wow. What crazy times these are! Hope you’re finding things to do to keep you happy.


Social tips from the Agents
I just got off a Skype with my fabulous agent colleagues Susan and Kim. I asked them what they are doing to get their social fix. Here’s their advice:
Susan’s Social Tip:
“Call a different person every night. Go down your list. It might be a neighbor, an old friend. Reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to in a long time.”
Kim’s Social Tip:
“Make a virtual dinner date with a few friends or family. Set a time to FaceTime or Zoom, and enjoy your dinner and drinks together.”


Business learning for creative people
I’m absolutely blown away that over 9,000 people (as of this writing) have signed up for my MATS MBA (Money Bad Ass) course which co-founder Beth Kempton and I are now offering for free. We wanted to do something to help our community and this course felt very timely. It’s a robust course with videos and downloadables to help you both negotiate this phase and be ready with your big dreams when this has all passed, as it will. Read more here.
