When I started in show business, I was an actor. I had the fortunate experience of watching my Dad go through his career as an actor. There were ups and downs. Sometimes the downs were really down.
I said, "That's not gonna happen to me." Now it's one thing to say that in a matter of wishful thinking and it's another to take action. So right after I said, "That's not gonna happen to me," I said, "How can I make sure that doesn't happen to me?"
