Daily News, Deadlines, and D.C.–No dress yet for the ball but here I come…

It’s been a roller coaster week. With just 4 days and counting to the release of my next book, The Mocha Manual to Turning Your Passion into Profit, let’s just say things have been a bit hectic. Today there was a great profile on me, Mocha Manual, and the new book, (check it out here) http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/columnists/richardson/index.html in the New York Daily News and it’s been a busy week of meetings, interviews, appointments and generally getting stuff done. I even got tickets to an inaugural ball hosted by Concerned Black Men and Delta Sigma Theta (yippee!!) But through it all, I was feeling a bit…overwhelmed. I did not want to get out of bed so early this morning, and my usual 1-2 knock-out punch approach to the day had somehow lost its swagger. I was on the ropes. My typical highly tuned performance looked more like Britney opening up the MTV awards. So I had to do a little something to put the pep in my step. So I started checking out some friends, old and new.
My new friend, Tammie Reed, runs Talking with Tami television show out of Atlanta and is doing all sorts of fabulous things. Her energy was infectious. By the time, I got off the phone I was feeling amped. Tammi must have been too, cuz by the time I blinked after our phone call she had posted this boom banging post. http://talkingwithtami.wordpress.com/ Dang, those TV folks are fast…
Then my friend Lucinda Cross from UltimateVA Support called http://ultimatevasupport.com/. Lucinda has an top-notch team of virtual assistants and they and Lucinda herself have saved me on more than one occasion with much-needed administrative and marketing help. I love a good savior, especially when she knows power-point! Being surrounded by all these people rooting for me, congratulating me (past and present) and sharing their good vibes really picked me up. To top it off, I chatted with my girl, Joyce Davis in Atlanta, who blogs at http://www.enjoyceinglife.blogspot.com/ as we created our attack and survival plan for meeting up this weekend in D.C. And it dawned on me that OMG! I don’t have a thing to wear to the ball…The last gala-ready dress I wore was a few weeks after Michael was born and I am soo sooo happy to say that the dress is way too big! Yippee! So y’all know what tomorrow is…Shop till you drop.But be sure to check back…I’ll be keeping you updated, posting video clips and tweeting on Twitter with all my moves during inauguration weekend. KA in DC. I can’t wait!
