Sometimes dreams really do come true
When I was young I was obsessed with watching talk shows. It didn’t matter who the host was, I loved them all. When I was bored I would think up ideas for shows. Sometimes, I would even grab a large spoon to use as a microphone, and pretend to be the host….
When it came time for college, I wanted to select communications or journalism as a major. My dream was to work at a news station, and ultimately have my own talk show. Being the realist that I am, I knew the chances of that happening were slim to none, so I aborted my dream, and instead picked a more marketable major instead, accounting.
At first I hated my decision. I despised working for public accounting firms as a CPA. However, after about four years of suffering, I found my calling. A lucky break led me to a wonderful company, where I turned my job into a career, loving most every day.
Although now I am very happy with my career choice, part of me still wondered what would have happened if I went for my dream. Part of me still wished that I could have at least once seen the inner workings of a talk show. Well, the wondering is now over!
This week I was contacted by a producer of the new Katie Couric talk show. For every episode Katie has a blogger in the audience live blogging / live tweeting the show. Wednesday’s show is about inspiring hurricane sandy stories, and guess who the guest blogger will be?????
I am beyond excited!
Monday morning I will be at ABC studio’s in Manhattan. I will be greeted by the producer and will meet the shows guests in the green room. Then as the show is taped, I will be in the first row blogging and tweeting. The episode will air on Wednesday!
I hope you follow along…. To follow on Twitter
And please watch… I will be in the front row with my laptop…
Who would have thought something so exciting would have come out of such a devastating experience
