July 12th - Biggest Accomplishments

Write about one of your biggest accomplishments in life.

The expected answer would be giving birth in a foreign country to my baby girl.  You can read that story HERE.

BUT I am going to dig back to my young professional days at Fossil when I was a little 24 year old who went on live television selling Relic watches on the Home Shopping Network.  I was flown out to Tampa, Florida to go to "HSN College" for training and then back out the following weekend for my live shows.  I sold over $150,000 in my two, 1 hour segments.  Not too shabby... wish I would have seen a cut of that ;)  I am SO happy I had the opportunity to do it! I was supposed to go back that Fall but I had just had my tonsils taken out so I was still recovering from surgery and shortly thereafter we stopped selling on HSN.  Bummer. I would have LOVED to go back and do it again - Fancy hair and makeup, wardrobe selection, and the red flicking light glaring at you when you were LIVE with ZERO commercials! Just straight talking for 1 hour... It was terrifying, invigorating, and such an incredible experience.  I still can't believe they let little 24 year old me do something like that :)
