Whew! Glad that's done.

OK, so my little segment on TV yesterday is over.  Hallelujah.

The first time I do anything new I get so stressed out about it.  I overthink it.  I overblow it's importance in my mind.  I have a hard time thinking about anything else as that new thing inches closer on the calendar.

And then when I'm done with that new thing, I replay it in my head about a thousand times, thinking of how I could have done it better.  I drive myself crazy!

Anyway, I'm glad that I made it through my first TV appearance yesterday without totally choking on my words and without getting the splotchy neck that I often get when I'm nervous (lovely Eyre trait that many of my siblings and I get to deal with). I tried to cram in too much. I was worried about my hair (I need a haircut so badly!). I couldn't tell if or when they were showing the bullet points and chore chart they said they were going to show on the screen (I did catch a glimpse of a screen that was maybe showing me what the audience was seeing but then I was worried about looking at it for fear I'd lose my train of thought or look like I was looking the wrong direction on camera...).

Sorry. No more excuses. Hopefully the segment offered some people out there some helpful ideas to teach their children values - a subject that is near and dear to my heart.

Here it is.  See what you think.

You were perfect!

Nice work! That was a long segment, I would have been dying by the end. I used to help the spokesmodels at ICON prep for their QVC appearances, so if you ever want to practice for future spots I can be in your audience.

I'm so happy you are normal and stress about the same things I would if put in that position! You are so charismatic that you could show up in a moo-moo and curlers and you would be loved even more! The spot was wonderful and thanks for being a spokesperson for the POWER OF us MOMS! - Amy Bowler

I loved that segment. I'm a big fan of your site. Thank you for all your tips . . . and for who you are. I especially loved the emphasis on doing something nice for someone else. My oldest is 3 1/2, but i'm going to start asking that question tonight.
BTW, I saw that you were doing something for a conference here in Ogden next month. I think it's at the Eccles center? Can you give me more info about when you'll be presenting? I'll check back on your blog, or you can email me at andreajeppesen@gmail.com
