The IVY Podcast


Jan 13, 2021

Join us with Tara Schuster, Author, Playwright, and Vice President of Talent and Development at Comedy Central for some bracingly honest, often hilarious, hard-won lessons in learning to love and care for yourself from a creative executive called “ahead of her time” by Jordan Peele and praised by Chelsea Handler, Adam Grant, and Glennon Doyle.

By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara was a rising TV executive who had worked for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and helped launch Key & Peele to viral superstardom. By all appearances, she was thriving. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess. No one knew. Tara will share hard-won lessons from her celebrated new book, "Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies", the story of her path to re-parenting herself and becoming a “ninja of self-love.”

In a conversation with IVY CEO Beri Meric, Tara will share the simple, daily rituals she used to transform her mind, body, and relationships. She calls her approach of learning to love yourself in a non-throw-up-in-your-mouth-it’s-so-cheesy way. She’ll tackle topics so many of us struggle with, including self-criticism, emotional baggage, gratitude, and self-limiting beliefs, with humor and understanding.

Tara’s candid, practical insights will help create a life you truly love and feel more confident in your choices, no matter where you are in your life.
