It was inevitable, I suppose. After all, my first real job was in radio, and while I went on to work in television news, I always have looked back fondly on those first days in radio–I was 23 and ON THE RADIO. It was the best. job. ever.
And now…. thirty + years later (I hear you doing the math in your head!) I’m going back to “my roots.” I laugh as I write this because it seems like yesterday that I was hanging out with “my boys” in the newsroom. When I went on to work in television I remember thinking, “Hair? Makeup? Fancy clothes? And shoes?” But, I did it… because, well… I was now ON TELEVISION, which quickly became the best. job. ever.
Do you see the pattern here?
Girl gets out of college. Girl asks a lot of questions about what she should do with her life. Girl gets a job in radio where asking questions is part of the job. Asking more questions leads to a job as a television news reporter. Girl goes to law school at 40 where she hones her interrogatory skills even more.
It’s all about the questions. (And the shoes, of course.)
My “radio” show… The Gutsy Glorious Entrepreneur, is launching mid March and I will be in all my glory because I will be
interrogating interviewing women who are rocking the shiitake mushrooms out of their lives–after 40. I think it’s what you do with your life after 40 that is the real test of our Dignity, Integrity, and willingness to take Responsibility for your life. That’s when the rubber hits the roadblocks–that’s where you show can show off your guts.
No guts. No glory.
So, I hope you’ll tune in–if you want to join the new IT crowd–gutsy. glorious. women. shiitake mushrooms. etc.– get on board, now.
