TIP OF THE WEEK: “You can’t hug your job”

TIP OF THE WEEK: “You can’t hug your job”

As we approach the holiday season I always like to throw something like this out there. Use the kind words from Storytellers Les Rose and John Gross during this stretch and throughout your career. Take the time to put away the crazed demands of this profession for a few days put the same efforts into the ones who were there for you long before TV news and will be there long after. From mine to yours… Happy Holidays fellow storytellers!

Les Rose: “You can’t hug your job”

My friend John Gross, a renowned NFL films photographer, told me this when my wife was pregnant with my first son. “Your family and friends deserve equal time and even better treatment. You will be a better storyteller and a better person if you have varied interests and relationships.” It’s really true.
