I’m Going to Be on TV This Friday

IMG_6576Some super exciting news to share today.  I’m going to be on TV this Friday!  While I’ve made a few appearances on screen here and there, the majority of my television experience has been behind the scenes as a producer. Until now!IMG_6561

I was recently invited on to The Better Show to share my list-making expertise. With the assistance of a few gadgets, I explain how to detox your to do list and then chat about the best apps to keep you organized.

I had such a great time on set! The hosts, Kristina and JD where very gracious.  Turns out JD is a huge list maker and Kristina told me she could use a little help.  My segment will be airing this Friday, March 6th! If you’re in NYC – it’s on at 6am on WLNY (which by the way is the station where I had my first TV job and met my hubby!)  If not — go to The Better Show website to find out what time it’s on in your area.  Special thanks to my amazing friend Terri Trespicio who accompanied me and helped me nail all my listful talking points!

  2. Not wanting to come off as rude — Many of us correlate “no” with an insult.
  3. To avoid conflict — It’s common to say yes just to please a friend or coworker.

Sometimes I say yes to things I don’t want to do or have time for even if it makes me unhappy.

Cocktails Delivered Right to Your Door

Here’s how it works – you pick a cocktail you’d like to make at home and they send you all the pre-measured ingredients to mix the perfect drink.  Professional mixologists create every recipe, which range from Moscow Mules to a twist on an Old Fashioned.  These are probably drinks I wouldn’t tackle at home.  But with the kit they sent me — I tried took on The Sideshow, which is a variation of a Sidecar.
