A New Season begins!

The countdown is over because on September 7, I went back to work kicking things off with Texas coaching! August was my month off but let's face it - I didn't kick back and be a lazy couch potato! I did my homework and prepped for this new season! I woke up like an excited school-aged child on their first day of school ... or last day of summer ... depending on which child you ask! I woke up bright and early to make good use of the few hours I had before jumping in the car for Texas. Once the computer work was done and I noticed the time, I made a frantic dash to preps the fur babies for the day and get Pepita to daycare.

Once in the car and safely on the road, the pageant coaching adventures began as I made my way to Magnolia, TX. After a few phone conferences along the way, I made it there to surprise TCM girl, Ramsey, with her official TCM backpack & jacket! She's prepping for TX Jr High School America in October so we didn't waste any time to dive right into interview. The 75 minutes quickly flew by and next thing I knew, it was time for me to backtrack to League City to meet with Rylee!

We had a nice treat of being able to work poolside on a very nice evening! She was the first to be introduced to some of our new pageant prep techniques and can I say SHE LOVED IT! I am super excited to introduce this new fun way of learning public speaking to the rest of the group in a couple of weeks!

So after grabbing some extra Celsius, I hopped back in the car to head home to Baton Rouge. But once I got back home, I spent several more hours working on the computer and adjusting our marketing calendar for all the many areas I work on like travel agency, volunteerism, fitness, other blogs & podcasts, and of course TCM! I also laid out plans for Wednesday's coaching sessions, then finally went to bed at 2:17am.

Wednesday AM came QUICK, and since we are leaving for an extra vacay on Sept 9, I couldn't sleep in! So I made good use of my time by running errands and getting everyone and everything ready for our next adventure! I was able to edit the new video series "Behind the Scenes" that will premier on Sept 14 with an inside look on the daily adventures of being a pageant coach. Be sure to check that out on Facebook!

What else can you look forward to?
