19 Days and Counting

This photo is of me Saturday night...my last night in Chicago wearing my Bring it On t-shirt.

As the saying goes, be careful what you ask for!

Boy oh boy, the intention to write every day for my readers while getting ready for our August 11th debut on KLAC 570 AM in Los Angeles was a good one.

I thought I could do it!

In fact, I knew I could do it!

I had every intention of doing it!

Then came the reality of being an entrepreneur.

I've gone 12 days without posting a thing until now.

The reason?  It would take me too long and cost me a lot of time of actually working in the process.

Suffice to say, there's no way to totally recap my life since the last post on July 12th.

So here are the cliff notes...

Plenty of investor meetings...plenty of sponsor meetings...plenty of meeting meetings. :-)

We've officially moved to Los Angeles since I last communicated.

We actually moved to the City of Angels on Sunday, which was an incredible day that began with a wake-up call at 5 A.M. in Chicago; a flight to Atlanta for lunch; a layover in Houston until 10:30 P.M. Central Time; and arrival in LA at midnight Pacific Time.

After we landed some 21 hours into our day, we were required to sit on the plane while an air marshall came on-board to escort a passenger, who evidently had been unruly during the flight, off the plane while we all watched and wondered what was going on.  BTW...they really didn't tell us, but I did see him at baggage, so I'm assuming he WASN'T on a do not fly list or worse.

We fell asleep at 2:30 A.M. Pacific Time...23-and-a-half hours after waking-up.

Now the good news...I actually got to go to my first practice in SoCal at Orange Lutheran on Tuesday.
Feeling the artificial turf under my feet while taking the picture of the "Big L" in the middle of the Lancers' practice field sure felt nice.

I spoke with new head coach Chuck Peterson, a former Air Force assistant, who's in his first year of leading this Southern California powerhouse.  It was great to hear him say that he was excited about how our show coming to SoCal.

Now, the biggest job is getting the show itself ready, and I promise that for the remaining 17 days, starting tomorrow, I'll let you know what's happening every step of the way.
