The New Roaring Twenties with Jessica Fellowes - Episode 43 | English

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused immense hardship over the past year and a half, but out of crises, opportunity arises, as our guest today knows from all the time she has spent steeped in 1920’s archives. This has given her a hopeful outlook for the 21st century, and we all need some of her perspective in our lives! Jessica Fellowes is an author of 14 books, 5 of which were Downton Abbey companion books, and several of which made it onto the New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller lists. Jessica has been writing for a long time, first as an employee and then as a freelancer, and she really loves her work (some parts more than others). Our conversation today covers a wide range of topics; from authenticity, to celebrity interviews, to the double-edged sword of ambition. Jessica also has a lot of wisdom to share around knowing your worth, not being taken advantage of professionally, and the benefits of planning backwards. Listen in today to get a glimpse into Jessica’s life; you’ll walk away with valuable insights.

  • Jessica’s rule about payment, and the importance of honouring market value.
  • Know your worth, especially as a woman.
  • Elements that Jessica loves most about her work.

“I like to build big image galleries of what I think my characters might have been wearing, what they might have looked like, what cars they were driving, what the street scene might have looked like.” — [0:10:17]

“You have to bear in mind that there is no one true version of what happened in the past.” — [0:11:40]

“I see the 2020’s as really being the beginning of how the 21st century is going to look. This is our opportunity to say, “This is how we want to do the rest of this century.”— [0:15:10]

“Ambition is a good thing because it keeps you moving forward, but it can be a curse because you’re never satisfied.”— [0:23:57]

“If you’re not getting paid in money you should be getting paid in something that is going to be of benefit to you.” — [0:26:39]
