Lifes Interesting Twists and Turns. . .

I know I haven't posted a lot the last couple of weeks, (well, at least not where everyone here on the site can see it, but I'm working on a New addition to the site that I think lots of you will find very helpful, based on the current economy!
I'm really excited, but I'm still finalizing things and hope to have it launched by Friday.
Which brings me to todays Big Disappointment. . .
I often receive media requests here on the site, over the last decade I've been featured in several well known Magazine publications such as Woman's Day, Woman's World, etc as well as on several different radio talk shows.
Yesterday the Lifetime network contacted me for a potential guest appearance on their Morning Show, featuring my latest ebook, "The 2012 Family Guide to Groceries under $250 a Month".
I spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with the Coordinator and at the very end of the conversation, he dropped a bombshell on me. In order to schedule my interview on their show I would need to pay a scheduling fee. This fee is, of course, is a "modest" fee to cover the expense if I "back out" or if I am a "No Show".
So, like a fish eyeing a juicy worm, I bit, "Ok, how much is it?"
I nearly dropped the phone when he told me, $5,900.00 Yes, you read that correctly Five Thousand Nine Hundred Dollars. So, needless to say, I declined the "guest" appearance.
On a better note, I've really been getting back into my fitness routines due in part to the nicer weather and partly because I really want that "Bikini" body for summer. (haha, Don't let me kid you, you wouldn't catch me dead in a bikini!)
Over and out.
