Press releases and small talk about OWN Network, not favorable! What is? When you are building a network, you are bound to have setbacks and mistakes. However, Ms. Winfrey – practices what she preaches…..you learn from the mistakes and make changes!
However, there is one thing that hasn’t change – is her wish to make the world better. To teach and let people know that you can grow and still make the effort to change. I always say that change is good; it puts you in a place that is uncomfortable and forces you to do things differently!
Last year, Oprah Winfrey introduced her Lifeclass Series on her network, OWN; sharing her ideas and thoughts of the things she has learned during producing the Oprah Winfrey Show!
As if that wasn’t enough, she is taking her teaching on tour!! Taking her talented and inspirational friends to show us in a personal way that it can happen….CHANGE! I wanted to be part of it!
I was granted the greatest opportunity to attend!!!!
It was such a very exciting week in NYC, Figure Skating in Harlem was honoring Vera Wang at the Wollman Rink in Central Park, along with Rhonda Ross and Ellen Lowey – where Diana Ross was in town to celebrate with her daughter.
Then you have Oprah at CBS Studios, guest on the CBS Morning show with Erica Hill, Charlie Rose and her dearest friend Gayle King – promoting her Lifeclass event being held at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall and discussing her team’s new strategy for OWN Network. Here I was back and forth, each minute as important as the minute that passed, I was coordinating the finalization of a job; which went from a 3 hour job that turned into 6 hours! Let’s say you would think I was cloned, but I was able to get everything done (the check ins, will calls and authorizations). SUPERWOMAN!!!
There were two classes to be held at Radio City Music Hall!
I choose the evening class! Tony Robbins was the guest speaker for the evening class and let’s say the evening was intense; like a rock concert full of excitement! Mr. Tony Robbins equals INTENSITY.
Let’s say if you were coming to class, with pen and paper to take notes…it was not that kind of class! Jumping, laughing, yelling was being done……a complete wake up session. Oprah also was very enthusiastic and so helpful in getting you to know whatever you are afraid of it, you can definitely overcome to achieve.
“The past does not equal the future, unless you live there!”

By all means, you don’t have to miss out on the classes, there are more scheduled throughout the year , just log on to www.oprah.com for listings and if you want more of Mr. Intensity Tony Robbins, he has a new show on the OWN Network!
Well my adrenalin never subsided; here I was around 1 am in the morning near 42nd Street and who could n’t ignore acting like a tourist! With a quick bite to eat, getting M&Ms at their signature store and me chanting YES, YES , YES and YES among a bunch of strangers; I would say that I had an awesome evening!
