The first thing I was really focused on was this new Kickstarter campaign we started to help raise funds for our trip to LA to interview some mega stars, people that I admire, artists with unlimited creativity and we can really geek out on music, life, overcoming obstacles, gifts they've spoiled themselves with, inspiration, giving back, and so much more. I hope we can make this happen in the short amount of time we have to pull together financial resources to get out of Chicago. I suppose if the idea is good, the money will come.
I also had a real solid conversation with one of our family members and we had a really productive talk about the show, the direction of it, the budget, format for the next show, plus more. Everyobody likes reassurance, everyone has great ideas, but some places don't allow you to think outside of the box, and that is what the show is not about - we strictly promote stepping outside of the box, getting real....and inspiring people to live and love their one and only life.
I always contemplate where the show is going to go, but I'm not worried about it right now. The seed has been planted, now it's time to water this plant, give it some good sunlight, speak to it, nourish it, and make sure it's happy because it's making me and our team so happy. I guess this is the new relationship I am building and that is to take time with the show and feed it with happiness - a relationship is a 2-way street, Lindsay said that.
I am also writing because I heard it helps with SEO, but I need to practice my writing anyway, so look forward to a daily post about the day in the life of building a talk show from scratch.
