The Thrill of Victory, and the Agony of Defeat

Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 7.21.33 AMOlympics time!  Yeah – remember that line at the beginning of a major network’s sports opening?  (If you’re too young and don’t, you did not grow up at the optimal time, I’m sorry.)  And if you did, do you remember that horrible skiing accident and the dumbbell dude lifting the weights like a baller?

That was me yesterday.  Not so much on the skiing and the weight lifting (in fact, me doing either of those would probably be an excellent set up for a comedy), but mentally that was me.  I had bad news and good.

The bad news: no moving forward with HSN.  Worst part: I don’t know why the #STEMPrincess series was rejected from HSN.  Timeline?  Cost?  I just don’t know.  It was a disappointment, to say the least.

The great news: the first #STEMPrincess Advisory Board met!  I literally have a pile of 200 sticky notes with ideas, but I also have the next golden ticket item that I’ll be pursuing around this 3 book series, thanks to the ladies of this board, who all were inspiring and passionate about helping out.

So…as you have your own thrills of victory and agonies of defeat, I just wanted to share a few with you this week of my own.  Because NOTHING drives me more nuts than the wantpreneurs out there making it look sooooo easy to make millions of bennies.  It’s just not that easy.  The hustle/struggle is hard, and real.  Hopefully, you’ll have some people who have your back, as I and my #STEMPrincesses do now!

Cheers – and can you help a girl out by up voting my two panel pickers for SXSW next spring? http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/60048 and http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/59975. Thanks!
