In “Thank you 5,” this week, I talk about staying likable. Many guests talk about being the kind of person people want to work with, so you get hired. Well, once you’re hired, there are a few things to keep in mind, so people want to keep working with you or work with you again.

In “Professor’s Corner,” Sean Michael Flowers and I discuss keeping an eye on your mental wellness in this crazy industry as well as going on artist dates with yourself to keep that creative spark burning and some other tips for staying positive.
