When you get what you say you want, you better make sure you’re ready for it.
Wanted to take a page out of Throwback Thursday and just remember a really interesting day. I was on the air at V-103 because I won a poetry contest years ago. And even though I’m a spoken word artist and have been in front of all types of audiences, I remember being excited about the cash prize, the radio time and the other opportunities that came with the win.
And I also remember being scared and…uncommonly shy. My dad laughed at me and so did the DJ as he played my pre-recorded poetry (thank God) and I mustered up just enough energy to let everybody know I was in the studio.
From that day to this, I practice for the dream. In my mind everything is training. That’s the main reason I do podcast, to get over the fear. Lots of exciting opportunities on the horizon. So, I’ll let you know how the next one goes.
