Brief post tonight, I’m feeling exanimate, what with the 1.25 hour drive to Burnaby today for my TV interview with Global, in addition to the eleven hour day at the show. I haven’t seen the interview, but I had about 100 people go by today to tell me that they saw me on TV this morning and that I was professional, poised, and articulate, so I’m assuming it went well and that I didn’t embarrass myself too badly.
There are two articles about me online. One is by Mike Lloyd at News 1130. We taped an interview earlier this week and he pieced it together into a 30 second spot. Haven’t heard it, but his article makes me think it was a great piece. Check it out: A woman’s love of the road with her RV.
The Vancouver Sun article blew me away. I got nearly a quarter page in the ‘A’ section with a full colour picture of myself with the rig. Check out the online version: Moving from unhappy hoarder to queen of the road.
The show went well. The first talk was okay; it felt like a tough audience. The seats were almost packed for the second and I got my second wind as I got into my topic. I came away feeling that I’d really nailed it and hit my stride.
The people I met today were from all walks of life and all ages. Some bought my ebook, others just wanted to chat, but it was wonderful to know that my story has touched so many people in so many different ways.
One of Will’s friends came by to chat at some point and grab some pictures for him, so I can show off a bit of what I was doing today! Thank you to Ron for sending me the pics!
Here I am at my booth talking with Colleen at JRFM setting up an interview that I did right after my first seminar. She was the first to ask me on record why my rig is called Miranda, because she got a kick out of the story when I answered it before the interview.
And here I am on stage near the end of my first talk. Not a bad turnout!
Two seminars down, five more to go. And one final radio interview tomorrow. I’m off to catch some much needed Zs!Share on Facebook
