Today my business/coaching partner and I went to KGNW to sign contracts for Coffee with the Coaches. Four years ago i had a coaching show on KKNW and when the economy crashed so did my support. I was so disappointed and sad that i had to let it go. Now four years later, I not only have a partner to share the reponsibilities. We have people to voice the commercials and someone to run the board and answer phones. It makes me think about a time five years ago when i wanted to give up. I was passed over for one radio job after another. I was turned down for a gig i really had my heart set on and i said "that is it! I quit"! I was done, tired of the roller coaster, of the hurt and pain of rejection. Later that day i went to the Family Resource Center to meet with the big brothers and big sisters. I walked into a party in progress. I asked who it was for and they all said "YOU" "It's a pity party". Because of that party and all the love in the room. I was able to "buck" up and try again. I can hardly believe i am on the air everyday and about to start coffee with the coaches on air. I am so glad i didn't give up. Dreams do come true.
