Today’s guest is Margaret Cho, an award-winning comedian and incredibly creative performer who is often called the “Queen of all Media” having conquered the worlds of film, television, books, music and theatre. Her comedy tours always sell-out and this fall she’ll be embarking on a new tour with her latest Concert Special, psyCHO, which is all about Margaret’s take on today’s news and events… She’ll also be appearing in the new movie Tooken which arrives on Digital HD and Video On Demand later this month (It’s a parady of The Taken movie series with Liam Neeson.) Equally as important as her art is the causes she is passionate about. Margaret is widely recognized for her charitable work with gay rights, anti-bullying campaigns and the homeless community, which grew out of a tribute to her dear friend, Robin Williams.

Three takeaways from our interview:

— How hamburgers offered early lessons about money growing up in San Francisco with immigrant parents.

— The financial opportunity she passed on…which could have made her millions.

— Margaret’s advice for earning what you’re worth. How does she negotiate her deals?

    Bummed about the audio on Margaret Cho, it was so NOT money that I had to bail on listening. THANK YOU so much for the transcripts. I appreciate having another option. You’re the best. And I would have passed this up otherwise.

      thanks Antonius. Sorry her audio was crackly. Glad the transcript saved it!
