I started writing this blog for many reasons but one was to have a place for women who auditioned for Women Inventor to get information about the upcoming show.
So I am going to pass along information to you that I got today because I feel it's important that I keep with my original purpose of my blog.
I have called Milojo to confirm what I am going to tell you all but I have not heard back from them so please keep that in mind.
I spoke to a lady today that has received a contract for Women Inventor and an outline of the show. She was emailed this contract and outline two weeks ago.
The outline stated that next month a camera crew would be filming her for 6 days and then in the Spring of next year, there would be one finial taping in New York City.
She was told that 60 women have been selected and sent contracts but they will only be using 24 women for the show.
Like I said, I have not confirmed this with Milojo but I do not feel that this information inaccurate because there would be no reason for this women to not tell the truth.
If this information is leaving you feeling disheartened, believe me, I know how you are feeling.
From what I understand, the show is waiting to see who, out of the 60 women, will sign the licensing agreement.
So... what now?
After a tearful moment and the realization that it looks pretty grim for me and The Everything Marinator (for this show), I decided to pull myself up from the bootstraps and realize that this is just not the path God has chosen for me. And believe me, I have had to remind myself of that over and over again today when a wave of "poor me" set in.
I do believe that everything happens for a reason and things are the way they are supposed to me.
During the audition in Chicago, I met this really great girl with an idea SO good that I am working with her to help get her product out there (she has not received anything from the show either). And we have become great friends. So I do think that in some way, I was meant to meet her and maybe that was my purpose for auditioning for the show.
But for now, I am going to pursue other avenues for manufacturing The Everything Marinator and see what God has planned for me. You should all see the pitiful little look I have on my face right now while typing this...all sad and poutty... :)
Chin up Tracy! Good things are to come!
Feel free to leave comments (and condolences, ha ha) on my blog and please know I have had a blast getting to know all of you and seeing, reading and learning about your wonderful inventions.
I am headed on vacation with my family - gotta love summer - and will not be blogging until next week but will check in early tomorrow morning before I leave.
I hope you understand that on behalf of the women I am speaking of, I can not tell who she is - a promise is a promise but I wish her luck and luck to all of you too!
