A Little Nepotism Never Hurt Nobody, Honey

John Featherstone – Founding Partner at Lightswitch Inc.

Hailey Featherstone – Freelance Lighting Programmer and Designer

Mario Educate – President & CEO, OSA International

On this episode, we discuss the pros and cons of nepotism in the entertainment business, the pride of having children be a part of big projects, bringing children into the shops and theaters, providing support for children who want to follow in their parents footsteps, how to get out from a parent’s shadow, how to climb the corporate ladder with a parental safety net, comparing work ethics and philosophies of the younger and older generations and a whole lot of family discussions about work.

“A little nepotism never hurt nobody, honey. If you got it, use it. Press on with it. Remind them of it.”

– Lena Horne
