Never sit in the rocking chair of life and say, “I wish I would have.”
That’s the motto I live by and right or wrong, I have allowed the saying to guide my life. I changed the direction of my career when I left TSN as an anchor and reporter and went back into news, acting, singing and production. People thought I was nuts. But I had a plan and right now I get up every day excited about what the new day will bring.
Don’t get me wrong. Change is hard and there have been tons of frustrating moments during my career transition but let me tell you, the rewards have been plenty. Are you ready to take a deep breath, make a plan and go for what you have always wanted?
