Create Your Yes with Angela Marie Hutchinson

April 26, 2022

From birth it's estimated we hear the word no 400x per day. It's amazing we try anything new because that's a lot of negative and limiting conditioning. In this episode, the dynamic polymath, Angela Marie Hutchinson, explains the life skill I wish I'd learned a lot sooner: How to redirect your no's to Create Your Yes

Angela, who is a showrunner, screenwriter, producer, television host, working mom and former talent agent, created this actionable 12-step strategy for success based on her TEDx talk Create Your Own Yes, When You Keep Hearing No.

Her advice is both inspiring and practical. My key takeaways are:

  • Progress is success
  • Track your success and look for patterns so you can replicate what works for you
  • Measure your inchstones instead of the milestones
  • Get unstuck by showing up and being generous
  • Don't just look ahead - use your peripheral vision too

For nearly a decade, Angela has produced a diverse portfolio with her media company, BiH Entertainment. She also works as a career coach, public speaker and business consultant. Angela’s clients call her The Dream Builder. In 2005, Angela founded BReaKiNG iNTo HoLLyWooD, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that helps entertainment professionals pursue their careers. Repped at The Gersh Agency, Angela is actively developing and producing numerous projects with active development deals at a top production company. Angela is also the creator and executive producer of the 2021 Facebook Watch series, “Asking for a Friend,” hosted by Vanessa Simmons. As a filmmaker, Angela wrote, produced and cast the feature film, “Hollywood Chaos,” also starring Vanessa Simmons. Angela has been recognized as a media and arts trailblazer by the U.S. Congress, Los Angeles mayor and Los Angeles city council.
