How This Actress Runs Her Business Behind The Scenes

Business Lifestyle

1. What do you do? Who do you help?

I’ve had recurring roles on Showtime’s I’M DYING UP HERE and currently on BET’s GAMES PEOPLE PLAY. I’ve recently been on larger screens in GLORIA BELL, MUSE, and SPINNING MAN.

As a writer/performer, my one-woman show, UNDER THE JELLO MOLD, tells the story of my mom at the end of her life. The title refers to where my mom hid her post-mortem instructions; it turns out my mom was also hiding a secret.

Through its humor and relatability, I share how universal the mother-daughter relationship is, and how we can carry on and even laugh, after one of the most difficult times in our lives: the death of a parent.

Best Advice

4. What is the best piece of advice you have received?

  • “Leave a room cleaner than you found it.” – This was advice given to me by my mother (and who hasn’t been given this piece of advice?) It is basically my moral in life. I stretch the word “room” and “clean” to mean “world” and “better”: I hope to leave the world a little bit cleaner, nicer, and better than I found it. That is what motivates me to do good in my work and life every day. And to pick up trash in the street whenever possible (although sometimes, this task just gets overwhelming and I have to let it go).

5. What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?

  • Remain true to yourself.
  • Money isn’t everything.
  • Be good to everyone along the way; the person who carried your luggage may someday be your boss.
  • Network with people who are in and outside of your field.
  • Lift other people up – you help yourself by helping others.

Business Lifestyle

6. What is your beauty and/or fitness routine?



  • I walk for fitness a few times a week (I try to do it at least three times a week) and I just try to be as active as possible all day – take the stairs, not the elevator; park farther away, not close; and if music is playing, I’m going to dance to it.

7. List the products or items that are indispensable in your life.

  • Qi’a Honey Chia Superflakes – I’m gluten-free, all-organic and can’t eat anything processed. I eat this cereal every single day (sometimes for breakfast AND dessert); I keep it stocked in my cabinet like the Apocalypse is coming. I love it!
  • HBO, Netflix, Amazon Prime – because “Barry,” “The Kominsky Method,” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and free shipping
  • Laughter
  • Cookies – currently I’m having a little thing with K-Toos… they’re gluten-free vanilla sandwich cookies and my husband is a little jealous. Also cheese. Thank God I can still do dairy.

Business Models

8. Which female entrepreneur(s) do you look up to and why?

  • Oprah, Oprah, Oprah. Because Oprah.
  • Nell Minow. She heads a company called Value Edge Advisors that advises institutional shareholders on corporate governance issues, and was my boss when I was in college. She is also a movie critic in her ‘spare time,’ and is one of the coolest, most well-rounded people I have ever known. She is also a blast to spend time with as she is incredibly knowledgeable about many things, and always a great listener (which is a valuable thing to be in business).
