    I loved it! Sometimes we who are NOT in entertainment think that people who are (in entertainment) have no doubts about themselves, no fears, no questioning of their abilities, no insecurities. It’s eye-opening to realize that they go on and entertain in spite of them. Gives us something to “shoot for”.
    PS, I love you guys!
