In just three short months of trying to help others work-at-home, I was noticed on Facebook posting in the groups. I was approached, and asked to be on the media. I thought it was a prank. I was surely being punked!
I played along… “This is so-and-so; we LOVE what you are doing. Would you please fill out this questionnaire so that we can see if we can possibly help?”
Okay… what did I have to lose?
I mean it took me all-of-a-minute to fill out the questionnaire.
I was contacted almost immediately!
“We LOVE what you are doing. Would you please send us ALL your information?”
Okay …what in the hell is going on? I am being punked in a BIG WAY! I continued to play along.

An hour past.
Yep! That’s it! I am being PUNKED. Someone’s going to “get it!” I started laughing.
YOU HAVE NEW MESSAGES. YOU HAVE NEW EMAIL.
I read the messages, and the emails. To be honest, I can’t really tell you word-for-word what they said, because I went into shock.
It went something like this…
“Stephanie, we absolutely LOVE what you are doing. We have checked out the information you sent us, and we would like to have you on air on Tuesday. Please respond ….”
This was on a Friday…I responded. Exchanges were made over the weekend. Monday came, and my phone rang.
“Unknown Number” I answered.
On the other line was the sound manager doing a sound check to see how I would sound on the radio. I tried to keep my “cool” while I was on the phone with him, but I was dying inside. IT IS REALLY HAPPENING!!!
I was told how to prepare for Tuesday’s call. The fact, that I was going to be on the radio LIVE with over 6 MILLION listeners did not quite sink in UNTIL…
Tuesday came. Before I knew it, my phone was ringing for the final sound check. I was told I would receive a call back in 20 minutes, and to be ready.
IT HIT ME!
I BAWLED LIKE A BABY! OMG…you know snot running, can’t breathe bawling…
I tried to calm myself down.
A half-hour later after sounding like I just mourned the death of a loved one, I was on the air LIVE!
Before I knew it, my 2 minutes of fame was over, and I was off the phone. Still in COMPLETE SHOCK AND just realizing how I sounded from my “little bawling session,” I was ready to bury my head in the sand.
11 months later…
I published this book. I am coaching people how to work-at-home, e-mailing job leads, blogging, and of course, writing more books.
(I start around 39.06. My old blog was “My Mom’s Totally Nuts.”)
