Here's an inspiring, wide-ranging interview with Bill Chott on his illustrious career. He's worked with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Ashton Kutcher, Robert Smigel, Dana Carvey, Johnny Knoxville, and more.

Bill discusses what he learned from Stephen Colbert and Second City in Chicago, as well as his top tips on "planning" a career in comedy and acting. It ends with a master class on improv acting principles. Well worth a listen!

You're an artist, not a marketing expert. Right? Yet, you know you must get a handle on social media marketing - and do it in a way that doesn't conflict with your personal and artistic principles.

It's been said that your "net worth" is directly related to your "network." So ... How well connected do you feel you are to people in your creative field?

On this episode I give my best advice on how to expand your circle of influence. How to increase the number of people you know ... and, more important, the number of people who know you!

Apparently, I'm considered to be a master networker - but I never think of myself that way. So if you don't like the whole concept of "networking," you'll get a lot out of this discussion.

Listen as she details her journey of refining her business, choosing her clients, relying on her personal values, and facing her fear.

There's a great discussion at the end about raising her prices that every creative entrepreneur should hear!
