I recorded this episode with special recurring guest, Rhonda Thain, way back in December when Josh took off for his LA trip. But for some odd reason I've never gotten around to releasing it (that reason could be because I am a master procrastinator).

So a thousand apologies to you for withholding this episode! But you're in for a treat because this one is JAM-PACKED with helpful words from Rhonda. We hit on some topics related to how to work better like:

  • How to fight burnout with 18+ hour work days on top of weekends and overtime
  • Keeping the creative juices flowing when battling exhaustion
  • Knowing when to turn down work for your own mental sanity
  • Establishing a morning/night routine and...
  • How to bring on that "Eureka moment" that occurs when a solution to a problem just hits you
  • Avoiding the pitfall of a "living-to-work" attitude
  • When to be a "Dream Crusher" for directors

...as well as offering some commentary on some relevant topics like:

So sit back with your coffee, enjoy the episode and start thinking about where on your wall you can mount a plaque with the words "This too shall pass" there to remind you when you're deep into your work and pushing your physical and mental limits.

In this episode we talk about some ways to create some side coin in addition to your typical bread 'n butter.

It's nice to pad the bank account with some supplementary income. Here are some ideas of how you can do that. Creating stock video/audio while simultaneously filming for another project? Utilizing a parallel skillset like photography or motion graphics? Time to think outside the box and bring in some extra cash on the side.

Here's what we talk about in this episode:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, listeners!

The holidays are upon us which means only one thing: year-end deadlines are looming for our many projects and we are all doomed!

...

I mean...we get to ask Santa for what shiny new toys we could use for next year!

Whether being gifted to us by a jolly fat man, our loved ones or just a little treat to ourselves for retaining our sanity this year, we all have some top requests on our list. What's on your list? More hard drives? Subscription to Adobe for another year (or five)? An editing assistant who works for coffee?

Josh and I list off our top gift requests from Santa this year and had better see a few of these under the tree this year.

Share with us your own Christmas wants via Twitter and we'll see it gets received by the Big Man himself.

Hey, remember our interview with the fellas from SOUNDSTRIPE? Give Episode 65 a listen if you haven't heard it yet.
