It was so lovely to have Debra McGrath on the show. Deb seems to me like someone who has gotten good at living in the moment. That is something I continue to work on every day. She has a kind of infectious energy that inspires you to go for more in life. When I was listening back to interview, I actually had the thought, I am so glad I record these conversations. She provides such nuggets of wisdom with her wealth of experiences, I found myself listening to certain parts of the interview more than once to let the truth of her words ring. Kind of like listening to a great song that you can’t get enough of when you first hear it.

In this episode, we discuss what she believes people who are starting out should look for in an agent, how she keeps herself engaged in her creativity, how she looks at giving a “good audition” as the “win” and actually booking the job is “the cherry on top.” She also gave a great piece of advice regarding exercising your creativity, “Do it any way you can and every way you can.”
