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…
