196 – Susan Blackwell
Susan Blackwell is an actress, writer, and singer, best known for playing characters based on herself in the original musicals [title of show] and Now. Here. This. She has appeared in other plays, musicals, films, and television shows, and even created and hosts her own talk show Side by Side by Susan Blackwell on Broadway.com.
In this episode, we talk about . . .
- Finding the time to pursue your dream, while working your day job . . . like literally while your boss is standing over your desk as you work on lyrics!
- What “dollar-cost-averaging” has to do with a career in the theater.
- Life of a freelance artist and how she structures her day for success.
- Why being a multi-hyphenate and focusing on many things is important to her, and should be to you too.
- How did Title of Show happen – and what’s it like now watching people play her!
