On May 17th, television and digital producer Tiffany Bender joined members of the Her Agenda Insider community and dropped gems upon gems about how she has made her dream career a reality. Here’s one piece of advice that resonated with Her Agenda Insiders:
“Take nothing personal, not even a compliment. By doing so, it keeps you humble but in a way that we need to stay up out of our feelings. Take the compliment (always, and full. Stop self-depreciating) but also don’t let it go to your head.”

On what keeps her motivated to move forward:
“One of two lessons I hold close: No one cares, work harder – because that will keep you humble. I think humility is so important in propelling where you are and keeping the right people around that enjoy working with you.”
On the skills needed to work in television:
“Take WHATEVER job in television. I find now that people exiting schools be “too good.” And don’t let them have a little clout online. I was literally painting GOLD TEETH white as a production assistant. Tracking down baby daddies. So if you aren’t on TV already, get there.”
