Older Is Better In This Profession!

President of the United States!

That is the only profession where being older is actually a plus.

Think about it.

Obama was 46 when he was elected, and he was the second youngest president elect? People always said, "He is too young! He doesn't have enough experience. He is so young."

Wow! I wish in Hollywood they said that when you were in your 40s! That would be so awesome!

JFK was only 43, a baby!! An infant~

But hey take an actress over 35 and she is done! You wanna write for television better lie about your age and don't ever celebrate past 31-especially if you are a woman.

Advertising? You have to be in your 20s! Your twenties!

PR? 30 max.

You are smart but couldn't afford medical school when you were young, now you are in your thirties? FORGET IT! Most medical schools won't even accept students over 30, and practically no hospitals will accept interns at that age either.

Retire at 55 , or 65 is what we hear our entire lives. OLD is anything over 35, and don't even think about getting a new career in your 40s!

The good news is if you already work in your industry, you may be okay.

If you already work in entertainment-as long as you're not acting, you can survive as well. It's hard to break in after a certain age, but once you're in, you're in.

BUT if you really want to go for a job that it is better to be older. Run for president!!

Reagan-the actor-was almost 70!

In the midwest, you are definitely dead by 70, never mind retired, and in Hollywood forgotten-unless you are Betty White-but you can be president!!

What are you waiting for? Do it!

Finally a career that embraces your wisdom, knowledge, and wrinkles!

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
