I was in for the shock of my life yesterday. On Thursday I had been asked by a producer to be on a radio show on Monday. (At least that is what I thought I was being asked to do).
When we got to the studio on Monday morning I found out that I was scheduled to be on T.V. with Debbie Worthen and Ron Byrd two popular weather and news personalities here in Salt Lake City.
I was told to set up my things—which was news to me as I had no clue I was to have visuals as I thought it was radio. My business assistant, camera women and I hurried and scrambled and we pulled together visuals and a great show. It was on “clutter control for all the papers kids will start bringing home from school”. The segment went off without a hitch and Ron even took my camera and took an impromptu photo of us for facebook while we were on air.
Have you ever had a shock that you weren’t prepared for such as out-of- town company or life throwing you a curve? Did you wish you had been better prepared and gotten rid of the clutter in your home as you had been meaning to do?
When this happens to you I recommend the first thing to do is to get others to help you. Have confidence in yourself because even when life throws us curves we can count on others and we will rise to the occasion. It can actually be fun!
What kind of shock have you had that required team work and big deep breaths—along with some chocolate after it was all said and done?
