NOT because I am taking on surfing as my next hobby. No, I bought the outfit so that I will not be so cold in the fall when I continue to exercise in the water. The lifeguards told me a rash guard will keep me warm and since I am up to doing 50 minutes of exercises in the pool, I want to maintain my ability if I can. My husband said I look “hot.” Let’s remember that he is in his mid 70s and is living in his imagination!
THANK YOU TO MY BLOG MASTER FOR PUTTING ME ON WORDPRESS. I blogged a little blog. A few people read it. I blogged again – another little blog. People visited and viewed it. I found I had an outlet to my voice. I blogged again and again. All little blogs. Now I have a book. It is available for circulation in my local library. One of my clients ordered a book and donated it to her local library.
“My father would be so proud,” my mother would tell me. He revered books. My mother revered crafts. As you can see, I had no shot at being a big business person from the very beginning! But, I have already been on one podcast, one radio talk show, am scheduled to do a book talk, am scheduled to be on a local public access t v interview show, and will be on a podcast radio show -that operates out of Durham, NC. And my book just debuted Oct. 6th! “Not too shabby,” my friend would say.
If YOU WANT TO BUY A COPY FOR YOUR LIBRARY, THAT WOULD BE A FABULOUS CHANUKAH GIFT TO ME AND TO OTHERS WHO ARE AGING. AND 18% of the proceeds goes to Memorial Sloan Kettering – if not for our sakes, then for the sake of our children.
p.s. I AM FIVE FULL CHAPTERS INTO MY NEXT BOOK!
Here is how it works: I posted here on wordpress and on Facebook and LinkedIn about my podcast. (The rabbi who interviewed me, found me from my Facebook postings). Another rabbi heard the podcast and found my email address from the organization’s flyer. She emailed me and asked me to present some time in December. I will post details so that all my former colleagues can come since it will be near the district. The internet is amazing. I am really not tech savvy. I am, however, an incredible networker and the network is called a network for a reason!!!!!
