Pitching Photo

There is going to be a new product on the market (shortly) that I know you all will love and I had the privilege of being hired to pitch it!

I didn't want the shoot to end - it was so much fun and it's going to be awesome to see it on air!

Happy Anniversary Product X!

This past Saturday, it had been one year ago that I started writing Product X and what a year it's been!

I was reading my past entries and it's amazing how everything has evolved over the last 12 months.

I started out with an exciting invention and ended up finding a true passion - pitching products!

Now I am filming infomercials and my Everything Marinator is still waiting in the wings but not forgotten! My goal is to have The Everything Marinator on the shelves next March and with all the connections I am making in the infomercial world, I am hoping it will be easier than not.

I have had many highs and lows...I have had my hopes lifted only to be disappointed and lifted again...I have had experiences I would have never imagined...some good, some bad but all in all, I feel so blessed to have had this past year!

Thank you all for signing in, reading and commenting - it means more to me than you'll ever know!

I look forward to what the next year will bring and I hope the next 12 months brings you all the things you are hoping for!

A "Must Read"

When someone you love follows a dream, you want to support that person in every way!

My Aunt Hope has always loved to write and she is pretty darn funny so I was thrilled to hear that she started writing "The Dumb "A" Syndrome" Blog.

For years, when someone would do something SO ridiculous or stupid (for lack of a better word), she would say, "They need to go into the "Dumb "A" Syndrome" Book and it's we all say it! :)

This is going to be a very interesting and funny blog...not only will she have her own Dumb "A" stories to share with you, you can leave your Dumb "A" Syndrome stories in the comment section!

As a matter of fact, I am going to leave a Dumb "A" story on her blog today!

She is just getting started and I know how much your support has meant to me so if you feel so inclined...give my Aunt Hope your support too! You won't regret it!

And...we all have Dumb "A" Syndrome stories to share!

You can find her blog here on blogger at

In the Studio with John Cremeans

After a quiet couple of months, it was absolutely wonderful to be back in the Studio again!

I had the distinct privilege of working side by side with a real Pro - a man who has been in the business for over 24 years and has built quite a business for himself!

John and I worked together at HSN many, many years ago and in September of last year, we caught up with each other again in Las Vegas when I went to audition for Pitchmen.

I was nervous before the and make-up was done (which was fun!) but knowing I was about to team up on camera with someone as experienced as John was a little daunting.

I had absolutely nothing to worry about! John was so fun and helpful that I completely relaxed and had a blast!

John taught me some great little "tricks" about Pitching and memorizing lines...with everything else he does, John also trains Pitch People through his company CREMEANS MEDIA. There is also a blog, Facebook and other interesting Cremeans info you can find through Google.

I wanted the shoot to last all day - being in front of the camera and pitching was amazing but like all good things...the day came to an end. However, now I know I'll be "working" more frequently and that makes me very happy!

On a side note: Later today I will be posting more info about the shoot regarding The Go 2 Girlz on my site Make sure to visit there - exciting things are on the horizon!

Keystone CO River Ranch

We are all watching our pennies, aren't we?

So when you save for an entire year to take a family vacation and the trip (AKA: Customer Service/Accommodations) turns out to be less than desirable, it's pretty disappointing.

And what recourse do we really have? Sure, I can complain to the Manager but truthfully, do they REALLY care if you come back? You're just one family after all.

Because I know this, I am going the old fashion route...I am going to let the masses know about it. This will make me feel better and I can hopefully help someone else from not making the costly mistake we made.

First, we bought a package deal that included a free night of night skiing when we arrived (about a $200 value). However,the night skiing season closed the day before we got there. The front desk guy apologized and said there was a mix up but because it was a "free" pass, there was nothing he could do about it. Forget the fact that we had friends meet us so we could all ski together that night.

Then we arranged to go tubing at a cost of $30 per person for one hour. I treated my friends to the tubing since they came all the way to meet us for night skiing.

The River Ranch employee's were rude beyond belief. At the bottom of the tubing run, they would yell at us to "Move it"! It's not easy to get yourself out of the tube and drag the tube to the top at warp speed - especially for the young kids and it wasn't like we were moving at a snails pace. At one point they yelled, "Get out! This ain't no salad bar"! I have on video the two guys shouting at 6 year old son was asking why he was being yelled at. No fun. When they were yelling at my friend and his son, my friend said, "Buddy, there is no need to talk to us that way" and the employee kicked him off the mountain. $30 wasted. It was quite humiliating and degrading for all of us to be treated that way.

There are several restaurants in the River Ranch Village so we would hop in and get a bite before skiing again. The waiters and waitresses acted like it was an inconvenience waiting on us (no exaggeration) with eye rolling, etc. and I'm not just talking about ONE restaurant. It was every place we ate (except Woof Rock). Not to mention, most places were out of something or another we ordered.

Our family stayed at The Springs, a condo right by the slope and although the room was spacious the beds and pillows were disgusting and uncomfortable. Old blood stains and mysterious hairs on the sheets, lumpy beds/pillows that smelled terribly. I slept on the sofa.

My last big complaint (no need to ramble about all the little things) was when I picked my son up from ski school. I asked him if he had a good time. He said, "No Mommy, the ski instructor yelled at me all day saying I was doing it wrong". This was his FIRST time snowboarding. Needless to say, he did not want to go back and I didn't blame him. You can bet I spoke to that ski instructor privately.

When we were on the slopes skiing and having family time, we had a blast! However, this trip to Keystone River Ranch was beyond the worst money ever spent. So take heed...if planing a ski trip, look elsewhere.

Although this isn't my "typical" blog post, I felt that getting the word out any way I could is my best recourse.

I will be contacting the Manager at River Ranch to check in here to read my review.

Please feel free to forward...
