Radio Show 2018


Radio Show 2018 in Orlando, Florida
In August, I posted about my awesome experience at the MBA Radio Talent Institute.  While there, Dan Vallie encouraged us to apply to the 2018 Radio Show Convention in Orlando.  Several of us (Kadrae Smith, Kramer Sansone, Bukola and I) applied and got accepted.


My Favorite Parts...
Luncheon with Major Garrett and Jill Schlesinger
When I found out that Major Garrett was going to be one of the speakers, I was excited.  I got to meet him and he was very real and genuine.  I talked to him about Tony Snow and he confirmed that Tony was the real deal.

Garrett talked about his new book, Mr. Trump's Wild Ride.  I look forward to reading it.


Mentor Match-ups
These were small group sessions where we got to meet mentors in the radio industry.  My 2 favorites were Bob Proffitt (President & CEO of Alpha Media) and Laurie Kahn (Founder & Owner of Media Staffing Network).  


Podcasting Panel with Mario Lopez (aka Slater) and Jewel.
Jewel mentioned her work with helping people overcome anxiety.  While writing this post I looked up her site, and I am so excited.  As someone who has had a long journey overcoming anxiety, it is neat to see the outreach she is doing.

She also has a book that came out in 2015, Never Broken:Songs Are Only Half the Story.  I am excited to check it out.

My 3 Goals to Accomplish Post Radio Show
I decided I wanted to come away with 3 objectives, now that I have a fire lit under me.

1) Start my Podcast~I have been wanting to do this since I left MBA in August.  I transitioned from being a server to doing Lyft/Uber and there was a learning curve but I think I'm good now.  It's past time to dive in and start doing a podcast.

2) Create a Business Card~Yes, it's going to be pink.

3) Create a Kick-ass Air Check and Resume
