I probably should not admit this but…I will.
I almost missed this interview.
I was so excited that Jimmy Moore asked me back on his Low Carb Conversations Podcast that I couldn’t fall asleep the night before.
Yes, I know. I preach sleep. I love sleep. Sleep is awesome.
Before I speak at a new venue for a new audience I’m not the best sleeper.
When I finally fell asleep last Friday night/Saturday morning I was fully prepared to wake at 7 a.m.
BLOODY HELL! The next time I looked at the clock it was 8:03 a.m. The podcast was scheduled for 8:00 a.m.
I was three minutes late!
I flew out of bed like a crazy ninja fighter. I karate chopped the sheets wrapped around my legs and stumbled, crawled, thrashed my way through my bedroom door into my living room and made a flying leap onto my couch like a baseball player sliding into home plate.
Ok. I’m slightly exaggerating the journey from my bed to my couch but not really.
Come on MacBook. WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UUUUUP! I said, with a couple expletives mixed in as I pounded the keys on my laptop. I need Skype to load NOW.
At 8:04 I connected with Jimmy Moore, Keri Rogers and Mindy Noxon Iannotti. They were just signing on themselves and didn’t notice I was late. I didn’t tell them I woke up one minute earlier. Ugh. I was living that universal nightmare – oversleeping a final exam or very important meeting. OMG. I am never late!
When I present workshops, I arrive at least 30-45 minutes ahead of time.
We began recording the podcast. Adrenaline was surging through my veins. If I sound a little shaky, that’s why. I was trying to calm down, yet wake up. Thank goodness this wasn’t a video call.
Now, if that doesn’t pique your interest and curiously to click the button below and listen to me silently freaking out in my mind while I’m speaking, in my pajamas, on my couch, with no time to go to the bathroom, on a Saturday morning, I don’t know what will?
Thank you, Jimmy Moore I was beyond excited to be a return guest on your Podcast. I loved the topics and it’s always an honor to chat with you. I just wish I woke 30 minutes and not 30 seconds beforehand.
And to all my readers, clients: I hope this is the first and last time you will ever see (hear) me arrive late to a presentation.
