So when you’re given the chance to be on live TV do you run and hide or do you go for it?! Well let’s just say I wanted to opportunity so badly and then when I was given the scheduled date, I was scared sh*tless! LIVE TELEVISION! You can’t take it back because it is live!
It was such an amazing learning experience and I am so so happy that I mustered up enough guts to actually go through with this. I continued to ask myself all week if it was worth the stress, nerves, lack of sleep and more. When I sat down in the chair on the set and the host started introducing me, then I wanted to run. I started to talk and I tried to treat it like a conversation and the 4 minutes FLEW by.
Once I stepped off set, I felt an immediate feeling of relief and pride. I DID IT! I was on live television and I didn’t embarrass myself and more importantly I didn’t embarrass my brand.
I learned so much from this experience. I learned that your network and connections and the most important things and keep perservering. I continued to email and ask when would be a good time of the year to be on the show and then the one email I sent in January they responded with “can you be here Thursday morning?” (mental FREAK OUT!) 5 days to prep, wardrobe and build courage!
I learned to just go for it and enjoy the experience and the journey. I loved the experience and I loved live television. New dream: talk show host! Just kidding, but really it was amazing an surprisingly, fun!
When given an opportunity you’re scared off, go for it. You may just surprise yourself! #getoutofyourownway
