Where Dart­mouth Col­lege, 2014 Best for Re­ally, re­ally un­mo­ti­vated days. Vibe As the pro­ducer be­hind Scan­dal,

Grey’s Anatomy and How To Get Away With Mur­der, Rhimes is one of the most suc­cess­ful fig­ures in TV – and takes an en­tirely no-non­sense stance. None of this ‘fol­low your dreams’ busi­ness – that, she ex­plains, is “crap”. Her own dreams didn’t come true – she wanted to be a No­bel Prize-win­ning nov­el­ist, not a TV writer.

Post-it-note quote “I think a lot of peo­ple dream. And while they are busy dream­ing, the re­ally happy peo­ple, the re­ally suc­cess­ful peo­ple, the re­ally in­ter­est­ing, en­gaged, pow­er­ful peo­ple, are busy do­ing.”
