Woke up and thought today was going to be a good day, exactly the way Ice Cube portrays it in his song. Today feels like the best day ever. I found out that my wife and I are having a baby girl, I mean fuck yea! I'm allowed to say that, this is my damn blog, sucka!
So happy and so thankful for having a daughter and having the opportunity to name her after my mom. We already have the name planned out, we are so happy it's pouring out of the both of us! This totally affects the show on so many levels.
From taking time off to take care of the baby, to now planning further in advance and bringing the baby with us, to inspiration the baby is going to provide us, plus so much more. It's all good though, life will be as is and will be lived and loved no matter the circumstances we face.
My dad, step mom and my mother-in-law came in to share the reveal of the news. We ended up going to Panera afterwards and talked about how amazing it is to have this blessing of bringing in a new child to this earth. With my mom being gone, this moment really affected me strongly and allowed me to appreciate the beauty of life just that much more.
Spent time updating our Kickstarter campaign and reaching out to as many people as possible to support our trip to LA to interview amazing musical guests for The Scott Emo Show. I'm really focused on raising the neccessary funds to get these interviews captured on film so we can have the content for life. That's how amazing it is to interview people, you get to be inspired over and over again from real people who have real stories, but while having fun.
If you don't know who Phillip Chang is, you might not be in PR/Marketing. Phillip is definitely a sophisticated, cool and great guy to know. He came up with an idea for our Kickstarter campaign that made so much sense. He told me that our rewards were ok, but we should spice it up. So... what did he do, Scott?
Well, Phillip came up with the genius idea of allowing some of our project backers the exclusive opportunity to ask our interviewees a question. I thought it was such a good incentive for someone to support the project and get some real cool value out of their financial support. So, he motivated me to update our campaign and within a few hours, it was on!!!
Going to get ice cream with the Lindsay and her mom... To be continued.
I think I'm going to spend the rest of the night trying to sell our Kickstarter campaign to everyone I know.
Just got a call from Kandi Burruss' publicist a few mins ago to confirm we have an interview with the lovely Kandi Burruss on Wednesday of next week! I'm a legit fan of the Real Housewives show, but I'm especially a fan of Kandi because she's bold, creative, passionate and you can feel her positive energy. It'll be a phone interview, and it's going to be awesome. Now, I need to do my research on her from other interviews she has done and ensure I'm bringing something unique to the table, but stays consistent with our message.
