I'm just a teeny bit embarrassed (maybe a little more) to admit that i didn't know anything about Samantha Brown, prior to that day.
It's not that I don't watch TV, but somehow Ms. Brown and her long standing career as one of the most well known Travel Channel Hosts had eluded my own private universe.
What I did know, was that she was at Space Camp at the same time that I was there. She was there filming an episode of her show, and we were asked NOT to take any photos of her.
Apparently Samantha Brown is a very big deal.
Better Late Than Never, Right?
The point is, that everything happens for a reason, right?
Samantha Brown began her keynote speech at TBEX with a video montage of her past travel shows and I saw everything that I ever needed to know about Ms. Brown.
It was crystal clear why everyone, including myself was lined up after the Q&A, to meet this delightful and audacious woman.
Samantha Brown Is My New Role Model
When Ms. Brown explained to the packed house of Bloggers and Travel Brands at the Von Braun Convention Center in Huntsville, "How I Got This Job", I immediately fell in love with her.
And, at that moment, I had a light bulb moment.
- I'm very entertaining
- People enjoy watching videos of my travel adventures
Why couldn't I be JUST LIKE Samantha Brown? Well…I decided that I can.
I Think I Can I Think I Can
Upon my return from TBEX, my "soon-to-be" ex-husband and I declared our marriage OVER, and thus began my quest for travel host stardom (or something like that). I'll have to pay the bills all by myself and will need to earn a lot more money now
Throw all the spaghetti up against the wall and see what sticks
I'm pursuing many different avenues and revenue streams and with my newfound gumption, some noodles are sticking.
I've recently landed a landed a role in an off-Broadway show, a lead in a short film, and a staged reading, all because the bad energy has moved out of my apartment. Sorry, Dan.
I'm having the time of my life acting in 'The Great Pie Robbery," I'm working on some more video content for the blog, and thinking about becoming a travel agent too.
