First of all, I’d like to give a huge thank you to all of you guys for watching the show, supporting me, and sending your encouraging e-mails, text messages, and notes. I’m so thankful for all of your support and it really helps to know I have great people backing me on this entrepreneurial journey!
The trip to see Bethenny was so much fun; I arrived in the city the day before the shoot and got to spend time with my family. We shopped, went out to dinner, and prepped for the big day ahead. My call time was super early Friday morning, so I was up and at ’em before the sunrise and sitting in my own dressing room eating a yummy breakfast and drinking coffee – it was fabulous! Of course, I also loved the hair and makeup part…I got to sit in a “movie star mirror” (the kind with the light bulbs) and have my hair and makeup done by the show’s artists. If you know me on any level, you know that I live for this kind of stuff (all things girly and beautiful), so I was in heaven.
The production team was awesome and they hung out with me in the dressing room and back stage, helping me every step of the way. I had a blast getting to know them. The day we taped, Laila Ali was also on the show, so I watched her whole interview with Bethenny from backstage. She is beautiful and was so nice.
Meeting Bethenny was a wonderful opportunity. She is just like you see her on TV: energetic, driven, and funny! The segment was all about getting business advice from Bethenny, so she gave me some great pointers, offered her opinion on my business strategies and tactics, and surprised me at the end with some funding to help me with the business! I was so shocked and couldn’t have been happier to receive the life-size check they brought out for me on the set (it’s hanging in my office now). It was definitely a “PINCH ME!!!” moment. I enjoyed every second of the experience and I can’t help but smile from ear to ear whenever I think back on the whole day – truly a magical moment for York Design Co.
