PRINTABLE: Quarantine Date Night Deck

Jessie Rosen - March 27, 2020

First and foremost I hope this post finds you healthy and safely indoors. These are – I can’t even find the right word to describe them – times, and the better we all stay safely quarantined, the sooner they’ll be behind us all. I’m writing from Los Angeles where my husband, dog and I have been (mostly) indoors since Thursday, March 12th. That’s 14, 75 …

How Activism Works, On You

Jessie Rosen - April 24, 2017

Yesterday I went to a meeting run by an activist organization working on voter suppression issues.   The group is a division of the Action Group Network launched by Beau Willimon, who created House of Cards. It is an impressive, motivated and organized group of friends and strangers tackling the very specific issue of affecting change in government by ensuring that all Americans eligible to vote can actually …

It’s The End of Complaining As We Knew It

Jessie Rosen - February 28, 2017

In light of the fact that American Democracy is crumbling before our very eyes at the hands of an unqualified megalomaniac who has, in a mere refuse-to-count-them weeks in office, made life more miserable for trans people, immigrants, refugees, and journalists (to name the mere obvious) – pretty stable, probably white Americans can no longer complain, about anything. To be clear, I’m not complaining about …

5 Toxic Money Habits To Ditch in 2017

Jessie Rosen - December 30, 2016

Why You Need To Make a List of What You Need

Jessie Rosen - September 15, 2016

A few weeks ago my therapist asked me what I feel like I need.   It’s a weird question out of context. Not what do you need for this session? Or what do you need to get through this work week? or what do you need to really feel like your wardrobe is complete? (solid brown leather belt, black cashmere crew neck). Just what do you feel like you need? We talk a …

Secret To Success: Be More Like Matt

Jessie Rosen - August 3, 2016

How one e-mail from one stranger has kept me focused on what it takes to find success [photo credit/source] A few years ago I participated in this panel run by this organization called the JHRTS (Junior Hollywood Radio & Television Society). My friend Jade put the group of speakers together. The topic was television staff writing and each of us represented a stage of the writer’s …

Sex Talks and The Bachelorette

How To Get Your Storytelling Show on The Bachelorette

Jessie Rosen - June 1, 2016

Next Monday night, June 6th, my show SUNDAY NIGHT SEX TALKS will be featured as a segment on ABC’s The Bachelorette.   All will be revealed in the episode, but for now I can say that Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher (aka a human god woman) brings the men of The Bachelorette to a special Sex Talks show and major drama ensues. I feel like this begs the …
