Joan Rivers’ Best Advice to Build a Career You Love
Joan Rivers, famed comic and most recently host of Fashion Police on E!, died September 4, 2014 after complications from throat surgery in New York last week. Rivers spent decades in the entertainment industry, building a prolific career that saw her first as the lone woman in the boys club and gaining even more success as she aged in an industry known for its youth. A natural boundary pusher, there is no shortage of tributes on the internet today featuring her comedic gift. I would like to praise her incomparable work ethic, as anyone who saw her 2010 documentary saw in action. Rivers was also one of the women featured in the documentary series project Makers, the largest video collection of women’s stories. If you haven’t watched the acclaimed series already, you should. Here are Rivers’ best quotes from her Makers segment for anyone working hard to build a fulfilling career that you love and believe in.
