My name is Joanne Randall and I host a new show on WTPL in Concord called NH Women In Business. The whole idea of hosting my own show came from wishing I had some way to have instant credibility with clients. I figured it would be much easier to get in the door with perspective clients if I said I was the host of a show. It worked, but I never realized what kind of commitment I was making. If I did, I probably would have been scared off. I am glad we don’t always know the risks before jumping in. It would stop a lot of us from trying new things.
We have been on air on Saturday mornings at 8am since November 2009. I have met some pretty incredible people, which makes all the effort worth it right there. I would like the show to go a little longer and maybe a little later in the morning. But I am not sure I am ready for that yet. Since I do all the recording, editing, and production, I would need to be ready to commit even more time to the show. And I am still selling air time to regular clients at the same time.
By the way, I work part-time. The good news is that I set my own schedule and that is just awesome. But it is tough to get everything done.
Until next time,
