Dennis ventures to beautiful Carpinteria, CA to interview creativity-productivity specialist Sam Bennett about the work she does inspiring people to make their creative ideas happen. She talks about how she got into this line of work, the difference between highly creative people and other people, why she moved on from acting to her current career path, that time her life fell apart and she had to totally reinvent herself and her days as an improv actor with Second City. She also talks about one of her creative babies that is about to be launched into the world; the musical In a Booth at Chasen's, which she wrote the book for. It's about the real-life Hollywood romance of Ron and Nancy Reagan. (It runs from November 9 - 25 at the El Portal Theater in North Hollywood). Other topics include: the joy of getting a C at something (as opposed to always have to get straight A's), what's great and not so great about being your own boss, her murder mystery party days, remembering that marketing is a conversation, the wonderful poem she wrote called Ode to a Drama Teacher, missing acting, her problem with Siri, having blinders on about acting, the Modern Family gig that surprised her and the sound her clients sometimes make that makes her really really happy.
