In Defense Of Steve Harvey (and Boundaries)

About a month ago, a memo from comedian and TV host Steve Harvey made the rounds and earned him a lot of criticism. It was directed at his team, and instructed them not to approach him in public spaces, not to interrupt him when he’s in the makeup chair, and not to barge into his dressing room to ask him something. People decried the memo saying it was an indication of Harvey’s inflated ego, but I disagree. Yes, he could have handled it differently (and he admitted so himself), but in principle, what he did was healthy. He set clear boundaries to protect his ability to do his job.

On today’s episode, I discuss three areas where you also need to set healthy boundaries if you want to be effective as a creative pro.
