New Website- Sort of

I have been waiting patiently for my new laptop which I got yesterday but couldn't work on until about 8:30pm since I had to get the little guy to bed and get ready for company today. So when I finally turned it on, I began sending my archived mp3 files of previous shows to the nice young man who is building my website for me.

However, if a person's email can't handle large files, they never reach them. So for over an hour I tried to send shows to him and only one made it. Now I will be sending them in segments. I desperately want to get the site up by the end of the week.

Keep looking for an announcement on FB for the official launch of http://www.nhwomeninbusiness.com/. Thanks for your support!

NHWIB-Getting started

My name is Joanne Randall and I host a new show on WTPL in Concord called NH Women In Business. The whole idea of hosting my own show came from wishing I had some way to have instant credibility with clients. I figured it would be much easier to get in the door with perspective clients if I said I was the host of a show. It worked, but I never realized what kind of commitment I was making. If I did, I probably would have been scared off. I am glad we don't always know the risks before jumping in. It would stop a lot of us from trying new things.

We have been on air on Saturday mornings at 8am since November 2009. I have met some pretty incredible people, which makes all the effort worth it right there. I would like the show to go a little longer and maybe a little later in the morning. But I am not sure I am ready for that yet. Since I do all the recording, editing, and production, I would need to be ready to commit even more time to the show. And I am still selling air time to regular clients at the same time.

By the way, I work part-time. The good news is that I set my own schedule and that is just awesome. But it is tough to get everything done.

Until next time,

Joanne
