I was telling Jeff Pohlam, Producer of Business News, CNBC TV about all the great information I learned while working at CNBC during the late 80′s and 90′s. I was explaining how I use lots of the knowledge picked up there in my business today. Having direct access to anchors, economists, brokers, and other financial wizards, provided me with heaps of terrific tips. From 3 am till 6 pm, Monday through Friday, it was all business. I was there absorbing it.
Nights and weekends, it was all entertainment. Celebrities, politicians and sports figures passed through in droves. Like a parade of the rich and famous they all spent time with me. I met so many stars in my 10 years there it was unbelievable. As you can imagine, their stories ran the gamut, and my education became exceptionally well rounded.
“YOU should write a book,” was all I heard
As I talking away, Jeff said, “You should write a book about all the things you learned at work. A publisher would buy it tomorrow.” I sort of brushed it aside and don’t really think much about it for a few days. Then the other day, I was in a meeting with one of my clients and heard myself say, as Donald Trump said….
It hit me like a bolt of lightening. Jeff’s works came flooding back to me. And I thought maybe I should write a book about the lessons learned from some of the world’s most famous people. But, having recently finished a book I was just not into it. If someone told me I had to write another book, I’d just jam my fingers in my eyes! At this point, I don’t have that kind of time or energy.
Weekly Star Studded Insights
So instead, I decided to start off with a weekly blog post. Every Monday of 2011, I’ll be giving my favorite tips. Each week I’ll write about a lesson learned from someone famous. I’m focusing on the best possible advice I’ve received and deliver it in a positive way. I’m not into slander, so if you’re looking for that you won’t find it here, try one of the rags. On the other hand, as anyone who knows me will attest, I’m no BS and I’m planning to give you the real deal.
Just to give you an idea, here is a taste of the people in my line up. I’ll feature lessons learned from Maria Bartiromo, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, George Foreman, Marilyn Chambers, Robin Williams, Melanie Griffith, Larry Kudlow, Joan Rivers, and Matt Lauer, just to name a few. With a 25 + year career in the media, film and entertainment, I have lots of material from which to draw and tons of valuable insight to offer. I’m really looking forward to sharing this information with my readers and I hope you will enjoy reading it as well.
Kicking it off in Style
Next week, Monday, January 3rd, I will kick this off with a name that’s been in the news a lot lately, the beautiful and speeding towards, single, Camille Grammar. Stay tuned…
