So somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.
Does the line sound familiar? If you’ve watched “The Sound of Music”, then yes, it is familiar. It’s the lovely song sung by Maria and The Captain, after they professed their love for each other.
Nah, this issue isn’t about finding the love of my life – found him almost 30 years ago – tied him to a tree and forced him to marry me…lol!!!
This issue is about a major, major blessing in my life that makes me wonder if I have, indeed, done something good to deserve it.
What would you do if you receive a Facebook message like this after a few hours of sleep?
Yes. I was shocked. I had to ask some friends for confirmation. Yes, it is THE Marv de Leon of Freelance Blend. And yes, he said, “We would love to interview and feature you on our podcast about freelancers.”
I pinched myself three times. Blinked my eyes 10 times. Maybe Marv mistook me for another virtual assistant? Maybe he just woke up or something? For how can somebody like me be featured in the 4th ranked show in iTunes – not only in the Philippines but globally?
Maybe if I were an admin of an online group like CJ Maturino or Althea Sagayno or Francis Edward Guintu, I would understand. Maybe if I were a notable freelancer like Catherine Quiambao, I would understand.
After 30 minutes or so, I said yes and asked what the topic will be (ready to receive a message that said, “Oh, sorry, wrong person”).
And he said, “Hello po. Topic will be about your story, how you became a freelancer, so that we can inspire others po.”
I couldn’t believe my eyes! I guess I was on automaton when I typed my responses.
The reality dawned on me when he said, “Thank you po. My VA, Riche will arrange our interview schedule po. More power to you po and God bless.”
And when Richie asked for my email address and sent the questions and some guidelines.
And when I received the email that confirmed the schedule of the interview.
It’s to be on Monday, July 18, 8-9 PM.
It’ll be my first podcast, and I humbly ask for your support, guys. I may be a writer, but not a speaker. I might buckle. I might freeze. I might not be able to express my thoughts freely.
But the thought of you being there will give me confidence.
Are you in? Please say yes in the comments box below or in The Youthful Granny’s FB page. THANKS!!!!
NOTE: Guys, I was just informed that this podcast will be recorded and shown a week after.
