TAKIN' CARE OF BUSINESS

Well the new year is still young and already I've hit the ground running. It's been a hectic couple of days. I was up in Oakland, CA yesterday at a recording studio, no not singing, LOL, but I was doing some editing and voiceovers for this motivational speech that I gave/recorded a couple years ago. A few things have changed in my life since then and so some changes had to be made. The CD will be sold at this business convention to be held later this month in Vegas for a health drink company that my brother is the doctor/medical consultant for. They sold really well last time round and it's "new and improved" and it's a completely different audience, so we're hoping that they'll do even better this year.

Additionally, a couple months ago when I gave a speech at the Stanford Olympians event that was held up there, Ted Robinson, the host that day and host of many sporting events on TV, thought that I did a pretty good job and suggested that I get in contact with his agent in New York who works with television commentators as well individuals who give speeches, whether they be motivational in nature or otherwise. So I've been in communication with that guy and am looking forward to what the possibilities might be in that regard this year.

I don't usually make New Years resolutions but this year I made two. I fulfilled one of them today, that being to get to church on time. I don't know what it is with me and church but for some reason, I can't ever seem to get there before 10:05 or 10:10am so I promised myself to do a better job of this this year because I have no good reason for being so consistently tardy. Today I was in my seat at 9:59am....still pushing it, lol, but I'm gonna do better. I have to. I want to.

The other one, well I'll just keep that one to myself. No need to put all my business out there:)

Aside from that, I'm gonna be taking a trip and so I'll be gone for about a week and I'm not sure whether I'll be updating the blog while I'm gone but if I get a chance, I'll be sure to fill you in. Otherwise, I'll give you the rundown when I get back. Hope you all have been enjoying your New Year so far...

PS. - Sorry about the Dolphins DO:(

It does indeed seem like the first eight days of 2009 have been keeping you busy-that's always a good thing too. I'm sure you're on your way to accomplishing a lot this year.

Now go to church...on time :-)
