Positive Mindset and Resilience in the Writers’ Room ft. Rochée Jeffrey (SMILF/90210) & April Shih (You’re the Worst/Undone) (PT161)

Alex and Nick are joined by Rochée Jeffrey (writer on SMILF and 90210) and April Shih (writer on You’re the Worst, Undone and Mrs. America), to discuss the importance of self-care, growth mindset, knowing when to say no, and handling conflict in the writers’ room.

Why is it important to set intentions and goals for yourself? How do you manage impostor syndrome? What are growth and positive mindsets? How do you find community and support? How do you handle conflicts in a writers’ room? When is it appropriate to quit a writing job? How do you deal with a hostile environment?
