Radio Interview: More Info

The self-promoting introvert has struck again!

Tomorrow I will be on the radio with Curt Smith from WXXI Radio somewhere from 2-3pm."Perspectives with Curt Smith examines all aspects of life that matter to Rochester and Upstate New York, ranging from politics, education and health care to sports, religion and the arts. Each week listeners will hear compelling conversations with interesting and important people"

--well...sorta important... or just a little important, or maybe slightly interesting, as they have decided to interview me! I will be talking about entrepreneurialism, Charlotte, starting a new business, my old business, social media, introversion... and we covered the Bible and Rolling Stone Magazine too...(really!)

I have already taped the interview and I can tell you it was like taking the verbal SATs! Curt Smith is a profoundly academic man, whose questions, I am sure, are always meant to stump me. Last time he interviewed me he asked my thoughts on the Third Industrial Revolution! I am not even sure I answered tomorrow's questions well, or even answered the questions he asked! BUT... it was a fun interview and I hope that you get a chance to hear it--if for no other reason than to make fun of my inability to be clever, witty, or articulate, (not that you need this opportunity for that!)

Airs: Saturday at 2pm-3pm on AM 1370 Repeats Tues. at 11pm-12am mid.Also airs Saturday at 7am-8am on WNED-AM Buffalo, NY

You can hear the interview streamed live on http://www.wxxi.org/listen, and there will be a podcast for those of you who have something better to do mid-day Saturday or late night Tuesday.So again-- the Social Introvert is exposed for the world - yikes.

lazy day, crazy day PRIORITIES

Yesterday the family spent a wonderful day at a lake with some old friends. My big kid enjoyed tubing for the first time and the baby got to meet the fabulous woman who took care of his brother at almost the same age. It was a nice lazy day and a much needed no-technology day.




And then there is today, with an 8am mtg in Charlotte, NC followed by a haul down to Lancaster, SC for another mtg, then a LONG drive in pouring rain back to the "Tega Cay studio" for an interview with Curt Smith. Then a 45 minute drive back home in the rain, a quick change out of the "meeting" clothes into some "house" clothes -- another quick change after the baby decided I looked too clean, and several financial transactions (bills, logging time, etc) and now 5 minutes of Oprah before another change into a swim suit to go do my laps, (Triathlon coming up!) and then back to Tega Cay to see my Nephew for the first time.... (and his parents of course!)

Good news is that I have 2 new clients today and I am working through the pile of paper and to-dos... too bad there is not enough time in the day to get it all done.

Next week: Vacation
Following week: School Starts!!
