Part 5: You Have The Dream Job, I Wish I Was Doing What You're Doing
The picture of me sitting behind the computer sums up part of the dream. I can't tell you how much time I spend behind a computer or on my phone. This is where the planning takes place. The research, marketing, writing and scripts, editing of episodes, finances, logistics, education, rejections, calls and emails happen.
In the picture I am working on my Drink Destinations London episode. I am narrowing down hundreds of bars to 10-15, reviewing top bartenders, scheduling visits, writing the script, logistics, tracking finances, thinking about the shot list, editing with videographer all for 20-25 minutes worth of people either loving or hating the epiosde.
Secret to getting through all this? You have to love what you're doing.
