My Radio Debut on That Business Show

I had another first this week.  It wasn’t something on my bucket list but it certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone.  I appeared on live radio on July 6th on That Business Show’s Working Women Wednesday hosted by Jamie Meloni.  You are just now hearing about this because I didn’t want to let anyone know to listen live (except my husband, of course) for fear of sounding like a complete idiot.  In fact, I chose the July 6th date thinking many people would be out on holiday and there wouldn’t be anyone around to listen anyhow.  Leading up to the day of the show, my proud introvert self went through my usual 4 (or maybe 6 but who’s counting) stages of fear.  It didn’t help that Jamie sent an email two days prior mentioning live video streaming and an in-studio photographer.  What? Now video and pictures too!  Finally I reach the last stage of fear which was final acceptance.  I was brushing my teeth that morning and realized, “Damn. This thing is really going to happen”.  No tropical storm or South Tampa flood or widespread power outage was going to save me.  And so, I did it!   And I can’t, I won’t, say I liked it because that’s the introvert in me, but I will say that Jamie made it fairly quick and painless and I hope somewhat more entertaining than just listening to me give a talk.

Now, I share with you the video recording of this traumatic life event after having run it past good friend, Toby Morris, giving him direction to tell me whether to blog it or bury it.  In Toby style, he said to bury it on the front page of my blog, so here you go.

Video & Recap

Next, I’m off to begin the 4 (or 6) stages of fear for, not 1, not 2, but 3 panels I’ve committed to over the next 3 months.  Ugh!
