Week 10 Of My Journey Getting To New York.

I have started to feel the fear and do it anyway (a book by Susan Jeffers that I have yet to read). This week I have been more proactive and started to holler at media companies here in London about job opportunities. I'll give more details when I'm successful otherwise it may seem that I'm talking a lot of hot air. My research cap has come back out and I've started to e-mail and call round to managers, producers, directors about job opportunities and possible meetings. The key to this is for me to follow up what I’ve started and just be confident within myself. It reminds me back to the time when I had to meet the editor of news and convince him I was capable of doing some work within television. He just wanted to know I could do the job and once he saw that I was confident and capable he gave me a chance. The penny is finally beginning to drop…confidence will take you so far! However knowing it and applying it are two different things.

I also e-mailed some companies in New York. A little pre mature maybe but I don't see any harm with letting folk know that I'll be coming out there to work next year. I have been really fortunate to have some wise friends around me who have given me good advice with regards to this trip.

I'm started to get excited now as New York will be here before I know it. I really want to start travelling a lot more in 2010 and the list of destinations are endless. I have no doubt in my mind that I will get to New York.....I miss the big apple soooooo much!
