When Beatrice found herself  weighing 200 lbs, she finally figured out that she was the only one who could change her life. She decided once she got down to the weight she wanted, she wanted to a trophy. Beatrice found herself training for a figure competition, and got her trophy! A lot of discipline was learned from training for the competition.

Three years ago Beatrice was staring down the road that revealed a lost job, a lost marriage all within 3 months. She didn’t take that sitting down, Beatrice is a fighter! She knew something good was around the corner her. Just a few short years later she found herself with the job, the man, and in the place of her dreams. Turns out, the job she used to do became available in Orlando, Florida. Someone from the TV station she worked for contacted her to go and apply for it. Before she knew it she was packing and driving Florida to start a new life with her brand new husband!

Beatrice aspires to be a better person than person she was yesterday. Her weight loss story is a great story of how you can stay strong in the face of adversity. Now that she is an avid runner, she decided to start coordinating her own 5k runs through the mall that she managers in Orlando.

I hope you enjoy Beatrice’s weight loss story, because it is important for you to remember to stay positive!

[00:00:24],510 –> [00:00:29],70
welcome to the dreamers podcast I’m your

5
[00:00:29],70 –> [00:00:31],200
interviewing Beatrice fini

6
[00:00:31],200 –> [00:00:35],310
who is living her dream through
attention-deficit disney disorder or so

7
[00:00:35],310 –> [00:00:37],470
she would have you believe

8
[00:00:37],470 –> [00:00:43],379
welcome to the show thank you thanks for
having me my own made-up terminology i

9
[00:00:43],379 –> [00:00:45],720
hope it’s appropriate

10
[00:00:45],720 –> [00:00:50],10
it seems that my talents are all disney
related in some way

11
[00:00:50],10 –> [00:00:55],890
former fashion well you know on the show
we we do love our disney people so

12
[00:00:55],890 –> [00:00:58],830
there’s nothing wrong with that

13
[00:00:58],830 –> [00:01:02],970
thanks so let’s get started by giving
some background about yourself

14
[00:01:02],970 –> [00:01:09],810
well i’m in 2003 I guess we’ll go back
that far i was someone who weigh 200

15
[00:01:09],810 –> [00:01:15],120
pounds was unhappy with myself and
basically came to the conclusion that

16
[00:01:15],120 –> [00:01:20],970
the only person who could change me was
me so I needed to do whatever it took to

17
[00:01:20],970 –> [00:01:25],408
get to whatever I wanted to be and
that’s when I started to search out how

18
[00:01:25],409 –> [00:01:27],60
I was gonna do that

19
[00:01:27],60 –> [00:01:33],450
um I got down to the weight range that I
wanted to be and then I decided that

20
[00:01:33],450 –> [00:01:37],830
after all that hard work i wanted a
trophy so I didn’t figure competition

21
[00:01:37],830 –> [00:01:44],880
and came in third place and after I got
my trophy i retired that night it was a

22
[00:01:44],880 –> [00:01:48],960
lot of hard work and it was wonderful
and it taught me a lot of great life

23
[00:01:48],960 –> [00:01:55],979
lessons about discipline and fitness and
exercise and how to live a healthier

24
[00:01:55],980 –> [00:02:00],450
life and and that took me to a lot of
other places but that’s where it all

25
[00:02:00],450 –> [00:02:01],680
started

26
[00:02:01],680 –> [00:02:08],459
then in $MONTH 2006 i actually went
through a period of time where my

27
[00:02:08],459 –> [00:02:12],870
discipline and all the things i have
learned a couple years earlier helped me

28
[00:02:12],870 –> [00:02:17],430
out a lot because i actually lost a job
of 12 and a half years because i was

29
[00:02:17],430 –> [00:02:23],250
laid off they just the company deleted
my position and i actually got separated

30
[00:02:23],250 –> [00:02:27],330
from a 10-year marriage and had to move
out of a house at eight and a half years

31
[00:02:27],330 –> [00:02:34],230
and all of that job house and marriage
happened within three months so so many

32
[00:02:34],230 –> [00:02:37],489
people were wondering how I could remain

33
[00:02:37],490 –> [00:02:42],740
positive and and basically the only
answer I had was it was just because I

34
[00:02:42],740 –> [00:02:45],740
knew that there was something better out
there that was gonna happen

35
[00:02:45],740 –> [00:02:49],550
all of that was not gonna happen to
somebody without something good coming

36
[00:02:49],550 –> [00:02:54],860
down the road and I just couldn’t wait
for whatever good was gonna start so a

37
[00:02:54],860 –> [00:03:01],340
few years later I actually yeah since
that time i got married to the man of my

38
[00:03:01],340 –> [00:03:06],680
dreams i live in the place of my dreams
and I have the job of my dreams so all

39
[00:03:06],680 –> [00:03:11],840
of that has totally come back around and
one day I was at work I got an email

40
[00:03:11],840 –> [00:03:16],580
from a former co-worker that I worked
with at the TV station that I had lost

41
[00:03:16],580 –> [00:03:22],700
my job at a few years earlier the email
said your job is open and i just replied

42
[00:03:22],700 –> [00:03:29],510
to her you know LOL and she she said no
seriously your job in the orlando market

43
[00:03:29],510 –> [00:03:34],489
at a TV station is open and I can’t
think of anyone who would rather live

44
[00:03:34],490 –> [00:03:40],310
closer to disney than you so my husband
and I i was remarried at that time we

45
[00:03:40],310 –> [00:03:44],000
had just gotten married it was you know
brand new marriage we hadn’t even been

46
[00:03:44],000 –> [00:03:49],340
married a year we talked about it and he
said well you know go for it you love

47
[00:03:49],340 –> [00:03:54],860
Disney you’d love to be down there you
missed working in TV so try it it won’t

48
[00:03:54],860 –> [00:03:55],790
hurt to try

49
[00:03:55],790 –> [00:04:00],19
so I i applied they gave me a couple
interviews on the phone i was a little

50
[00:04:00],20 –> [00:04:03],530
disappointed that they didn’t even fly
me down for an interview because i

51
[00:04:03],530 –> [00:04:09],410
really wanted to come to orlando but
they gave me the job and two weeks later

52
[00:04:09],410 –> [00:04:14],210
believe it or not I was here without
even thinking I was gonna be living in

53
[00:04:14],210 –> [00:04:18],530
orlando but my friend said I have a
guest room and my two bedroom apartment

54
[00:04:18],529 –> [00:04:23],30
so you can stay in my guest room until
you find a place to live so my husband

55
[00:04:23],30 –> [00:04:27],619
was back at home packing up everything
and trying to prepare to move and I was

56
[00:04:27],620 –> [00:04:32],870
just staying in her guest room and work
in a new job and just basically came

57
[00:04:32],870 –> [00:04:35],420
down here on on an email

58
[00:04:35],420 –> [00:04:41],120
who’s like your jobs open and that’s how
my life changed but I’ve always been the

59
[00:04:41],120 –> [00:04:45],890
type of person to just find something
and go for it no matter what direction

60
[00:04:45],890 –> [00:04:51],20
it is no matter what it is is how i got
into the rundisney all that the

61
[00:04:51],20 –> [00:04:55],549
races and all the medals and all the
things that I’m doing now I run with my

62
[00:04:55],550 –> [00:05:01],400
wdw radio running team we raise money
for our dream team project to make a

63
[00:05:01],400 –> [00:05:06],258
wish so we help with children help make
their wish come true by coming down to

64
[00:05:06],259 –> [00:05:13],580
disney i have recently married a couple
of disney world I’ve just every which

65
[00:05:13],580 –> [00:05:19],219
way you can turn it just kind of comes
into my plate and I just figure out how

66
[00:05:19],220 –> [00:05:23],240
to do it and go through the proper steps
to make it happen

67
[00:05:23],240 –> [00:05:26],509
well before we move on could you explain
how you were able to marry a couple in

68
[00:05:26],509 –> [00:05:28],639
the world believe it or not

69
[00:05:28],639 –> [00:05:33],770
Florida is one of three states in the
country that allow a notary public to

70
[00:05:33],770 –> [00:05:39],469
marry a couple and so my friends wanted
a really small wedding is just the two

71
[00:05:39],470 –> [00:05:43],880
of them and their daughter and my
husband was actually the second witness

72
[00:05:43],880 –> [00:05:50],180
because we needed to witnesses and so
they just had a really tiny wedding with

73
[00:05:50],180 –> [00:05:55],789
us they had booked the fireworks cruise
at the contemporary so you know you go

74
[00:05:55],789 –> [00:06:00],229
out on the boat and they even because
you have a driver they allow the

75
[00:06:00],229 –> [00:06:04],68
champagne and the cake on the boat with
you because since you have a driver

76
[00:06:04],69 –> [00:06:07],430
you’re not driving yourself you could
you know we just had a small ceremony

77
[00:06:07],430 –> [00:06:13],190
and it actually ended up with a thunder
and lightning and some rain so we did

78
[00:06:13],190 –> [00:06:17],419
have a back-up plan of where we went
with that but you know because it was so

79
[00:06:17],419 –> [00:06:21],799
small it wasn’t like it attracted a seam
and it’s not something that I do all the

80
[00:06:21],800 –> [00:06:25],880
time you know I don’t advertise that
sort of thing but but you know it’s just

81
[00:06:25],880 –> [00:06:30],469
one of those things that people say can
you do this and I’m like well actually

82
[00:06:30],469 –> [00:06:35],870
yeah i’ll figure out the proper steps to
take I’ve never done it before but we’ll

83
[00:06:35],870 –> [00:06:40],250
figure this out and you know it’s little
things like that and i’m kinda proud of

84
[00:06:40],250 –> [00:06:44],630
that you know you just make them steps
forward to learn new things and always

85
[00:06:44],630 –> [00:06:47],240
try something fun and exciting

86
[00:06:47],240 –> [00:06:52],400
yeah you gotta try that’s that’s usually
the first step towards was cut towards

87
[00:06:52],400 –> [00:06:56],90
completing it this is trying you can
think about things all the time but that

88
[00:06:56],90 –> [00:06:57],739
doesn’t get you anywhere

89
[00:06:57],740 –> [00:07:00],770
that’s one thing people say all the time
like how did you know how to do it I’m

90
[00:07:00],770 –> [00:07:04],80
like what you just have to research it i
mean if you don’t try

91
[00:07:04],80 –> [00:07:08],550
I’ll never actually do anything you know
you could succeed but not if you don’t

92
[00:07:08],550 –> [00:07:14],340
try you could fail but you know I’d
rather try something and then have to

93
[00:07:14],340 –> [00:07:18],780
try it again later than just never tried
to begin with so i’m actually not

94
[00:07:18],780 –> [00:07:24],239
surprised that Florida is one of the few
states that lets almost anybody marry

95
[00:07:24],240 –> [00:07:24],780
people

96
[00:07:24],780 –> [00:07:30],359
oh yeah really that’s a pretty wacky
state you know i was amazed that vegas

97
[00:07:30],360 –> [00:07:35],639
wasn’t on there but you know really yeah
well that would hurt their industry i

98
[00:07:35],639 –> [00:07:40],919
guess that perfect but that’s not
something I generally do but I’m you

99
[00:07:40],919 –> [00:07:44],849
know it just happened a couple weeks ago
and I’m just really excited for them and

100
[00:07:44],849 –> [00:07:48],479
it was another opportunity to learn
something new and just go for it you

101
[00:07:48],479 –> [00:07:49],109
know

102
[00:07:49],110 –> [00:07:53],69
definitely so what would you say
inspires you I just always want to be

103
[00:07:53],69 –> [00:07:58],949
better than the person I was yesterday
somehow and I don’t know what I’m a do

104
[00:07:58],949 –> [00:08:03],180
tomorrow but I hope that I learned
something new everyday the way I look at

105
[00:08:03],180 –> [00:08:08],699
things every single day is like a blank
picture and then you wake up in the

106
[00:08:08],699 –> [00:08:11],99
morning and you create your masterpiece

107
[00:08:11],99 –> [00:08:15],659
so whatever it is that you might be
doing on that one particular day you

108
[00:08:15],659 –> [00:08:18],690
know just try to do it well or do
something

109
[00:08:18],690 –> [00:08:22],650
learn something that you didn’t know
yesterday and that’s what inspires me

110
[00:08:22],650 –> [00:08:25],469
all the time it’s really nice

111
[00:08:25],469 –> [00:08:30],60
how does your dream of getting in better
shape come about I just didn’t like how

112
[00:08:30],60 –> [00:08:34],289
i was at the time and the only way to
change that rather than just sit there

113
[00:08:34],289 –> [00:08:37],319
and complain about it what that wasn’t
fixing anything

114
[00:08:37],320 –> [00:08:42],149
so basically I needed to learn how to
eat better i needed to learn how to

115
[00:08:42],149 –> [00:08:48],930
properly exercised better and to do
things along those lines even after the

116
[00:08:48],930 –> [00:08:52],890
the competition that I did I continue to
work out in the gym and I still do that

117
[00:08:52],890 –> [00:09:00],89
now but the running actually started
from marathon weekend of $MONTH 2012 i

118
[00:09:00],89 –> [00:09:04],949
was down there and the the team that I
run for now we actually had a

119
[00:09:04],949 –> [00:09:10],260
make-a-wish family that was down there
and some of the people on our team got

120
[00:09:10],260 –> [00:09:16],230
the opportunity to meet the family and
they were so incredibly touched at the

121
[00:09:16],230 –> [00:09:17],40
lives

122
[00:09:17],40 –> [00:09:21],209
it they lived you know that the child
that was going through so much the

123
[00:09:21],209 –> [00:09:25],649
family that was going through such
incredible things every single day with

124
[00:09:25],649 –> [00:09:30],509
hospitals and treatments and just the
fact that they had a few days that they

125
[00:09:30],509 –> [00:09:36],89
could just put all that behind them and
just enjoy everything magical it

126
[00:09:36],89 –> [00:09:40],709
it touched them so deeply that on
marathon weekend of $MONTH 2012

127
[00:09:41],550 –> [00:09:45],599
I did probably the craziest thing I
think I’ve ever done and signed up for

128
[00:09:45],600 –> [00:09:50],639
princess half marathon when I was not a
runner i had never i don’t think i have

129
[00:09:50],639 –> [00:09:57],480
run a complete mile at that point so I
had six weeks to train and I started

130
[00:09:57],480 –> [00:10:01],649
training immediately and building up and
realizing what sort of a talent i had

131
[00:10:01],649 –> [00:10:08],399
taken on and it was the inspiration of
seeing you know imagining the faces of

132
[00:10:08],399 –> [00:10:14],610
the make-a-wish children and you know
how they can’t run so I needed to be

133
[00:10:14],610 –> [00:10:18],870
strong and do this for them and in my
head you know I’m thinking all these

134
[00:10:18],870 –> [00:10:22],620
things i literally was crying as i was
running sometimes because i was just

135
[00:10:22],620 –> [00:10:28],230
thinking about the reason that I signed
up to do it and from that point on

136
[00:10:28],230 –> [00:10:33],870
you know I’ve done two marathons two
half-marathons I did the adobe challenge

137
[00:10:33],870 –> [00:10:34],949
this year

138
[00:10:34],949 –> [00:10:39],660
ok congratulations on that thank you
very much that was another huge one for

139
[00:10:39],660 –> [00:10:45],449
me and you know most people stop at the
48.6 but you know i’m just not the

140
[00:10:45],449 –> [00:10:50],219
average crazy person so I met with some
of my friends on Monday morning and we

141
[00:10:50],220 –> [00:10:56],940
rounded out that last one . floor to
make it an even 50 it’s so we actually

142
[00:10:56],940 –> [00:11:03],689
created our own sort of ultra marathon
so we did the 5k 10k half-marathon full

143
[00:11:03],689 –> [00:11:08],910
marathon and then round it out with the
1.4 to make it 50 miles in five days

144
[00:11:09],569 –> [00:11:14],699
so that’s how i got into rundisney and
by being a runner and inspiring some of

145
[00:11:14],699 –> [00:11:19],889
my co-workers and things we actually did
a 5k we coordinated it because I work

146
[00:11:19],889 –> [00:11:25],769
now I work in a mall office and our mall
management office got with a local

147
[00:11:25],769 –> [00:11:30],410
charity families in transition and so we
developed a five

148
[00:11:30],410 –> [00:11:34],160
hey that and we actually put it together
and you know got sponsors and got

149
[00:11:34],160 –> [00:11:36],860
runners and we had a really great
turnout

150
[00:11:36],860 –> [00:11:43],9
februari the first we did our first 5k
get forfeit and so now I have not only

151
[00:11:43],9 –> [00:11:46],850
been a runner but then on the
coordinating side of it as well so it’s

152
[00:11:46],850 –> [00:11:53],180
been a heck of a fun time trying to
figure all this stuff out so something

153
[00:11:53],180 –> [00:11:57],680
that I usually ask the people that are
into disney that are on my show is what

154
[00:11:57],680 –> [00:12:02],750
got you into disney when I was a kid I
always wanted to go to Disney and my

155
[00:12:02],750 –> [00:12:06],649
parents were not disney people i put
that in quotation marks you know they

156
[00:12:06],649 –> [00:12:10],370
they actually said those words to me my
mother was like I’m not a Mickey Mouse

157
[00:12:10],370 –> [00:12:15],319
person and all that sort of thing so I
never actually had the opportunity to go

158
[00:12:15],319 –> [00:12:18],740
until I was an adult and when I did go

159
[00:12:18],740 –> [00:12:24],199
I was so absolutely blown away by how
wonderful i thought everything was that

160
[00:12:24],199 –> [00:12:28],639
I literally was crying when i checked
out of the resort of state i stated the

161
[00:12:28],639 –> [00:12:33],620
contemporary my very first trip and as I
checked out i had just tears coming down

162
[00:12:33],620 –> [00:12:38],779
my face and and that day I doing the
disney vacation club and so I’ve been

163
[00:12:38],779 –> [00:12:43],490
many times since then and now even
though I live here i still go visit and

164
[00:12:43],490 –> [00:12:49],670
use my TBC points and have a travel
agency that I still contact when I like

165
[00:12:49],670 –> [00:12:57],170
to do my disney trip so absolutely still
total disney dreamer because when I got

166
[00:12:57],170 –> [00:13:01],490
there the first time I had always
dreamed of being there and it was like

167
[00:13:01],490 –> [00:13:05],959
every single moment that i was there was
like something I had never had you know

168
[00:13:05],959 –> [00:13:11],209
I’ve never gone on a lot of family
vacations as a kid I’ve never had you

169
[00:13:11],209 –> [00:13:16],40
know that the Disney family the siblings
the fun experiences so many other people

170
[00:13:16],40 –> [00:13:20],509
see so now I get to see other families
doing that and just being a small part

171
[00:13:20],509 –> [00:13:24],860
of that is so fun for me and I’m
silicate hard to so it’s like I went to

172
[00:13:24],860 –> [00:13:28],160
see Peter Pan what time and he was like
will you be my mommy and I said well no

173
[00:13:28],160 –> [00:13:32],600
because I’m never gonna grow up either
so then we decided we were just gonna be

174
[00:13:32],600 –> [00:13:38],89
friends forever so you know it’s one of
those things i’ll just never grow up and

175
[00:13:38],89 –> [00:13:41],569
i’m always enjoyed it so how was your
dream of getting in better shape

176
[00:13:41],569 –> [00:13:43],939
received by your family my mom

177
[00:13:43],939 –> [00:13:48],679
I was not really happy about it because
she was actually a head chef in Germany

178
[00:13:48],679 –> [00:13:53],569
when she met my dad so she really enjoy
cooking and she really wanted me to come

179
[00:13:53],569 –> [00:13:59],868
over and eat more and she was not happy
with my you know food choices and

180
[00:13:59],869 –> [00:14:06],649
dietary changes and the fact that i was
working out so much and they haven’t

181
[00:14:06],649 –> [00:14:11],419
kind of a tough time with it and in fact
my parents didn’t even go to see my show

182
[00:14:11],419 –> [00:14:16],429
so it was kind of difficult to do all
that but it was something that I wanted

183
[00:14:16],429 –> [00:14:21],259
and I needed to do it for my own health
and for my own happiness and I’m proud

184
[00:14:21],259 –> [00:14:24],889
of me to this day and you know they
bought me a necklace and they told me

185
[00:14:24],889 –> [00:14:28],819
they were proud of me but it was just
the fact that i could tell that they

186
[00:14:28],819 –> [00:14:34],69
still wanted me to be the old me what
about moving the disney how was that

187
[00:14:34],69 –> [00:14:38],959
received they are actually down here now
they never wanted to come down here but

188
[00:14:38],959 –> [00:14:45],108
now their health is is not well so i had
to get them closer to me so now my dad

189
[00:14:45],109 –> [00:14:49],220
is thankful that he’s down here i will
never forget the one time that I did get

190
[00:14:49],220 –> [00:14:53],239
them to disney world and I i do think
that my dad kind of liked it his

191
[00:14:53],239 –> [00:14:58],339
favorite characters goofy so he’s got a
little fun side he just do they they try

192
[00:14:58],339 –> [00:15:04],99
to hide it and be adult like a putt but
i think that you know small part of them

193
[00:15:04],99 –> [00:15:08],209
is thankful that I’ve chased my dream
they supported me when I came down here

194
[00:15:08],209 –> [00:15:12],709
and they said that I couldn’t live my
life just by being where they were in

195
[00:15:12],709 –> [00:15:17],959
North Carolina and I did need to do what
was in my heart to do so that I think

196
[00:15:17],959 –> [00:15:21],799
that they really kinda came around to
support me and I appreciate it

197
[00:15:21],799 –> [00:15:25],220
so what steps did you take to get
started could you go into more depth

198
[00:15:25],220 –> [00:15:31],39
about how you got started with getting
in shape and then also go into the steps

199
[00:15:31],39 –> [00:15:36],949
that you took to move from North
Carolina to disneyworld well for getting

200
[00:15:36],949 –> [00:15:37],909
into shape

201
[00:15:37],909 –> [00:15:42],529
I knew that I needed some help in trying
to figure out you know what to eat how

202
[00:15:42],529 –> [00:15:49],39
to handle how much to eat in a day you
know what the proper kind of foods and

203
[00:15:49],39 –> [00:15:55],339
the I learned actually that it’s
probably ninety percent of food ue and

204
[00:15:55],339 –> [00:15:56],720
ten percent x

205
[00:15:56],720 –> [00:16:00],889
ties I mean yes you do need to move and
do things but the whole discipline of

206
[00:16:00],889 –> [00:16:05],600
how much the portions are and the types
of foods that you eat the things like

207
[00:16:05],600 –> [00:16:10],759
that really did mean a lot more than I
thought it did so I learned a lot about

208
[00:16:10],759 –> [00:16:15],319
nutrition I had a trainer at the gym
that really taught me a lot and believe

209
[00:16:15],319 –> [00:16:19],878
it or not at that time I kind of learned
a lot with weight watchers and you know

210
[00:16:19],879 –> [00:16:24],379
counting the points and that sort of
thing just to kind of figure out how to

211
[00:16:24],379 –> [00:16:29],930
make proper to food choices until I I
knew more about it so that was one way

212
[00:16:29],930 –> [00:16:34],758
of doing it and then the trainer at the
gym really they were very blunt about

213
[00:16:34],759 –> [00:16:38],959
the way they worded things and I
appreciate that because I would do like

214
[00:16:38],959 –> [00:16:44],180
an hour and a half of cardio and I would
work my tail off and they came over to

215
[00:16:44],180 –> [00:16:49],99
me one day and said you know I see you
in here working so hard and you’re not

216
[00:16:49],100 –> [00:16:54],79
making physical changes so you know I
feel like you want to put the work into

217
[00:16:54],79 –> [00:16:55],878
it you just don’t know how

218
[00:16:55],879 –> [00:16:59],149
and they looked at me and they said well
you know what do you want to look like

219
[00:16:59],149 –> [00:17:05],59
and they said . me . someone in this gym
that you would like to look like so I’m

220
[00:17:05],59 –> [00:17:08],480
sitting there on the bike you know i
like what i want to look like that and

221
[00:17:08],480 –> [00:17:12],169
they said well you know what is she
doing is she over here you know peddling

222
[00:17:12],169 –> [00:17:17],209
on the bike or she was actually over
lifting weights and and Tony and so they

223
[00:17:17],209 –> [00:17:20],839
said well then why aren’t you over there
doing back from that point on they

224
[00:17:20],839 –> [00:17:25],549
started to teach me how to do the
exercises properly its own and so

225
[00:17:25],549 –> [00:17:30],950
between the dietary changes i was making
and the toning and the new exercises

226
[00:17:30],950 –> [00:17:34],970
that I was learning that really helped
me start to make the physical changes

227
[00:17:34],970 –> [00:17:40],490
and moving down here was just an
amazingly fast process

228
[00:17:40],490 –> [00:17:44],840
I mean two weeks after I even thought
about it I was packing up the car

229
[00:17:44],840 –> [00:17:50],30
because i had the email that you know my
job was open and I did some interviews

230
[00:17:50],30 –> [00:17:54],20
and then they said that you have the job
but we really need you to start right

231
[00:17:54],20 –> [00:17:57],980
away i had a friend and co-worker and
then my other person was a manager that

232
[00:17:57],980 –> [00:18:01],970
worked at that station that actually
hired me in North Carolina the TV

233
[00:18:01],970 –> [00:18:07],159
station i worked for so between the two
of them one hired me one had worked with

234
[00:18:07],159 –> [00:18:09],590
me before also and they were saying

235
[00:18:09],590 –> [00:18:13],730
you have got a guest room for you to say
in all you have to do is just get down

236
[00:18:13],730 –> [00:18:18],20
here so i just loaded up the car I was
like Beverly Hillbillies you can almost

237
[00:18:18],20 –> [00:18:24],650
not see-through see the rearview mirror
by I was packing you know gym clothes

238
[00:18:24],650 –> [00:18:28],730
were closed recreation close because i
knew i was gonna be trying to get the

239
[00:18:28],730 –> [00:18:33],110
disney world on the weekends and you
know just so much going on and I haven’t

240
[00:18:33],110 –> [00:18:34],699
even been married a year yet

241
[00:18:34],700 –> [00:18:39],559
my husband was back at home packing up
the townhouse and figuring out what was

242
[00:18:39],559 –> [00:18:43],908
he gonna do because he didn’t have any
job plans down here I mean this was just

243
[00:18:43],909 –> [00:18:50],600
totally out-of-the-blue so we really had
a lot of changes to make but I totally I

244
[00:18:50],600 –> [00:18:55],10
think him but I totally got out of the
whole packing and moving sequence he had

245
[00:18:55],10 –> [00:19:01],460
to do all that stuff I was just down
here in doing in life but so he gets a

246
[00:19:01],460 –> [00:19:06],500
lot of credit for all he did on that one
because I just I came down here and and

247
[00:19:06],500 –> [00:19:10],340
just enjoyed every moment of the
transition I don’t think you mentioned

248
[00:19:10],340 –> [00:19:13],549
earlier what do you do in the television
industry

249
[00:19:13],549 –> [00:19:19],279
well i actually started out in a
production in audio and camera and all

250
[00:19:19],279 –> [00:19:23],690
that sort of thing and I decided at that
point that I wanted a more normal

251
[00:19:23],690 –> [00:19:27],919
schedule because i was either come into
work at like 330 in the morning or I was

252
[00:19:27],919 –> [00:19:33],200
there until midnight basically so and i
was working every holiday because on

253
[00:19:33],200 –> [00:19:36],320
christmas day you’re sitting at home and
you know there’s news people are on

254
[00:19:36],320 –> [00:19:39],529
there so because i wanted a more normal
life

255
[00:19:40],159 –> [00:19:44],450
I got into the sales department and i
worked as an administrative assistant in

256
[00:19:44],450 –> [00:19:50],539
sales so basically my job at that point
was to create the presentations that the

257
[00:19:50],539 –> [00:19:56],000
sales people would take out and sell
commercials so that I love when that

258
[00:19:56],000 –> [00:20:00],860
position was eliminated then I ended up
in a mall management office which is

259
[00:20:00],860 –> [00:20:06],678
where I work again now but so after 15
years of working in television station

260
[00:20:06],679 –> [00:20:09],770
in Orlando was a little bit different
than I was used to in North Carolina

261
[00:20:09],770 –> [00:20:15],799
basically what we call a try opoly so
it’s kind of three stations in one so

262
[00:20:15],799 –> [00:20:20],539
there was three different stations of
people selling commercials three

263
[00:20:20],539 –> [00:20:23],210
stations of program logs with all

264
[00:20:23],210 –> [00:20:27],260
look the television programs on them
three stations of all the commercials

265
[00:20:27],260 –> [00:20:30],529
and you have to input all the
commercials with you know the

266
[00:20:30],529 –> [00:20:35],419
appropriate dollar signs that people
paid and exactly what show they put him

267
[00:20:35],419 –> [00:20:40],789
in and you all the details to the TV
world and because they were three

268
[00:20:40],789 –> [00:20:46],399
stations in one and so many people were
stressed out it was a completely

269
[00:20:46],399 –> [00:20:52],129
different world and I decided that with
the stress level that I had I just I

270
[00:20:52],130 –> [00:20:58],100
needed to find a more happy place so I i
left the TV world after 15 years and

271
[00:20:58],100 –> [00:21:02],689
working the mall management office again
and every day i’m so thankful because

272
[00:21:02],690 –> [00:21:04],850
it’s it’s fun

273
[00:21:04],850 –> [00:21:08],840
I mean every day has its challenges
there are still things that happen with

274
[00:21:08],840 –> [00:21:13],490
you know tenant issues or customer
issues or you know Christmas time and

275
[00:21:13],490 –> [00:21:16],820
you know that busy busy times and you
know they’re all sorts of things that

276
[00:21:16],820 –> [00:21:22],908
happen but I’m thankful everyday because
i truly love what i do now and to me

277
[00:21:22],909 –> [00:21:28],340
it’s a much happier environment it’s a
great team and we really work together

278
[00:21:28],340 –> [00:21:33],860
every day to just do the best we can do
and the fact that the stress level is so

279
[00:21:33],860 –> [00:21:38],719
much lower and it really helps that it’s
not like you’ve got three stations that

280
[00:21:38],720 –> [00:21:42],770
every commercial has to be there and
every years it’s just a whole different

281
[00:21:42],770 –> [00:21:46],549
level of all that has to go on you huh

282
[00:21:47],360 –> [00:21:51],949
there’s still a lot of work but you know
it’s just a much happier place to be

283
[00:21:51],950 –> [00:21:56],330
you definitely got enjoy what you do
since you gotta do it for about 40 years

284
[00:21:56],330 –> [00:21:58],279
or so give or take

285
[00:21:58],279 –> [00:22:03],20
give or take a decade it’s like a friend
of mine says you know if you love what

286
[00:22:03],20 –> [00:22:08],29
you do you never work a day in your life
so you know I had to get myself into a

287
[00:22:08],29 –> [00:22:14],120
place where I wasn’t so worried and
stressed out so this is actually you

288
[00:22:14],120 –> [00:22:17],899
know I did love working in television
but you know this what I’m doing right

289
[00:22:17],899 –> [00:22:22],850
now is like a dream come true so what
were boxes you hit first with getting in

290
[00:22:22],850 –> [00:22:27],799
shape and then also with moving there
are always things coming at you you know

291
[00:22:27],799 –> [00:22:32],149
just the whole life in general you know
you’ve got stuff that happens but every

292
[00:22:32],149 –> [00:22:36],739
single thing that happens helps you down
the road that you’re supposed to go

293
[00:22:36],740 –> [00:22:41],570
oh and i truly believe that you know
sometimes we make our choices and you

294
[00:22:41],570 –> [00:22:46],428
know there they might be the long road
but you’re gonna learn a lesson that you

295
[00:22:46],429 –> [00:22:49],790
were actually meant to learn and
sometimes it will make you tougher

296
[00:22:49],790 –> [00:22:52],10
sometimes it will make you stronger

297
[00:22:52],10 –> [00:22:55],970
whatever the reason for you going down
that road I just really truly believe

298
[00:22:55],970 –> [00:23:00],200
that everything has a reason and that
everything makes you better

299
[00:23:00],200 –> [00:23:05],780
so don’t ever let anything coming away I
mean between job losses or you know

300
[00:23:05],780 –> [00:23:10],580
having to move and times when you really
didn’t plan to have to move or you know

301
[00:23:10],580 –> [00:23:15],50
just different life things that are
thrown at you and it always makes you a

302
[00:23:15],50 –> [00:23:19],428
better person and it helps you to figure
out where you’re meant to be what you’re

303
[00:23:19],429 –> [00:23:21],770
meant to be doing what makes you happy

304
[00:23:21],770 –> [00:23:25],400
how you get there and if you’re not
there right now if you don’t like what’s

305
[00:23:25],400 –> [00:23:29],330
going on in your life change it and if
you can’t change it for whatever reason

306
[00:23:29],330 –> [00:23:32],840
change the way you look at it because if
you can change the way you look at it

307
[00:23:32],840 –> [00:23:37],340
and become a happier person that will
help you get through every day to get

308
[00:23:37],340 –> [00:23:41],30
where you want to be so my next question
is how you overcame those things but you

309
[00:23:41],30 –> [00:23:44],899
kind of already hit that one out of the
park so thank you

310
[00:23:45],440 –> [00:23:49],400
so there’s been a part of your dream
that haven’t quite worked out i don’t

311
[00:23:49],400 –> [00:23:53],390
think so because the way I look at
things as things are never over

312
[00:23:53],990 –> [00:23:57],800
so you know there was something that
maybe hasn’t worked out yet I can’t

313
[00:23:57],800 –> [00:24:01],309
think of anything but you know if there
was something it’s not over yet you know

314
[00:24:01],309 –> [00:24:05],360
you’re still on the road to get there so
you just always got it as long as you

315
[00:24:05],360 –> [00:24:09],80
just keep making steps forward and when
those things get in your way to slow you

316
[00:24:09],80 –> [00:24:09],830
down

317
[00:24:09],830 –> [00:24:13],428
always remember that the roadblocks are
not setting you back to the beginning

318
[00:24:13],429 –> [00:24:17],660
they might take you back a step or two
but you’re not going to start over so as

319
[00:24:17],660 –> [00:24:21],350
long as you don’t get frustrated and
stop you’re gonna keep going in the

320
[00:24:21],350 –> [00:24:25],370
right direction even if you have to go
around that little block to get there

321
[00:24:25],370 –> [00:24:29],510
you can still you know start from where
you are and not the beginning any

322
[00:24:29],510 –> [00:24:33],530
anymore you’ve already passed that point
so if you were stranded on a deserted

323
[00:24:33],530 –> [00:24:37],370
island with your family what three
things would you want to have with you

324
[00:24:37],370 –> [00:24:44],000
let’s see i would probably need the
internet i don’t think i could do

325
[00:24:44],000 –> [00:24:47],220
anything without that anymore

326
[00:24:47],220 –> [00:24:50],880
you know as long as I had my husband
there with me we can get through

327
[00:24:50],880 –> [00:24:55],230
anything together you know i’d probably
have my little disney dreams and you

328
[00:24:55],230 –> [00:24:58],919
know be trying to find a way to get a
boat to get me to Disney World for

329
[00:24:58],919 –> [00:25:04],830
vacation but I feel like flagging down
the disney cruise ships to get the

330
[00:25:04],830 –> [00:25:10],350
iphone honestly most of my stuff is just
you know the mental the motivation the

331
[00:25:10],350 –> [00:25:17],129
determination so that no matter what is
around us we could get there you never

332
[00:25:17],130 –> [00:25:20],970
know what kind of situations re-enter
where you are what you’re going through

333
[00:25:20],970 –> [00:25:25],770
or what’s gonna come at you but you know
as long as you’ve got what’s going on

334
[00:25:25],770 –> [00:25:29],730
inside your head you got the faith in
the belief in the determination and the

335
[00:25:29],730 –> [00:25:32],340
positive attitude to get through
anything

336
[00:25:32],340 –> [00:25:35],399
then it doesn’t matter what tools you
have they’re gonna work

337
[00:25:35],400 –> [00:25:39],809
so what are your dreams for the future
look like I would love to remain in this

338
[00:25:39],809 –> [00:25:44],70
area this is the place I’ve always
dreamed of being so I hope to stay here

339
[00:25:44],70 –> [00:25:45],299
forever

340
[00:25:45],299 –> [00:25:51],539
I do honestly kind of hope that somehow
my life might take on a little bit more

341
[00:25:51],539 –> [00:25:57],360
Disney you know I have so many friends
that do you know podcasts and blogs and

342
[00:25:57],360 –> [00:26:03],600
and i have a blog that i actually don’t
have much time for between working and

343
[00:26:03],600 –> [00:26:08],668
you know working out running in and I
volunteer with runDisney events and i

344
[00:26:08],669 –> [00:26:14],250
just recently volunteered with Special
Olympics Florida so with all of the

345
[00:26:14],250 –> [00:26:20],820
different like I said the ne D D D
attention-deficit disney’s order

346
[00:26:20],820 –> [00:26:25],799
anything related to disney the Special
Olympics withheld at ESPN Wide World of

347
[00:26:25],799 –> [00:26:31],379
Sports so by being affiliated with
Disney sports enthusiasts i was able to

348
[00:26:31],380 –> [00:26:35],820
volunteer and really see the faces of
those kids and and I just hope to

349
[00:26:35],820 –> [00:26:39],750
continue to you know if I’m not running
I’d like to be volunteering I’d like to

350
[00:26:39],750 –> [00:26:44],549
be doing more with all of my friends
that do the you know Disney dreaming

351
[00:26:44],549 –> [00:26:48],80
things that just like you do and I love
your show and I

352
[00:26:48],80 –> [00:26:51],918
every enjoyed it so far but you know so
many people have so many great things

353
[00:26:51],919 –> [00:26:56],750
that they’re doing and I just I would
love to somehow find a way to to be more

354
[00:26:56],750 –> [00:27:00],740
part of all of the the disney fund that
everybody’s having it

355
[00:27:01],580 –> [00:27:05],120
well thank you for the compliments i
really appreciate that oh you’re welcome

356
[00:27:05],120 –> [00:27:09],860
i’ve really enjoyed it and you know I i
just love to see all the things going on

357
[00:27:09],860 –> [00:27:13],879
and all the positivity and you know
you’re helping a lot of people to get

358
[00:27:13],880 –> [00:27:18],380
where they want to go and and that’s
another thing that I want to do as well

359
[00:27:18],380 –> [00:27:22],639
you know it’s just like Disney says that
you know anything can happen as long as

360
[00:27:22],639 –> [00:27:26],959
you have the courage to dream it if you
can dream it you can do it all of Walt’s

361
[00:27:26],960 –> [00:27:31],399
wonderful quotes that you know we look
at we read every day we believe in

362
[00:27:31],399 –> [00:27:34],668
ourselves so that we can do something
great and that’s really what it’s all

363
[00:27:34],669 –> [00:27:38],690
about is trying to help other people to
actually think about you know getting

364
[00:27:38],690 –> [00:27:43],220
off the couch and figuring out how to do
something themselves or you know if they

365
[00:27:43],220 –> [00:27:47],120
can’t figure out how to do it themselves
they can listen or read about how

366
[00:27:47],120 –> [00:27:51],379
somebody else did what they want to do
and you know just by knowing that

367
[00:27:51],380 –> [00:27:55],429
someone else did it might help someone
to think maybe I can too

368
[00:27:55],429 –> [00:27:59],720
yeah i mean that’s definitely the mantra
of the show and definitely try really

369
[00:27:59],720 –> [00:28:04],700
hard to motivate other people to do what
it is that they love to do so do you

370
[00:28:04],700 –> [00:28:09],169
have any last thoughts to share with the
audience now i think i had shared so

371
[00:28:09],169 –> [00:28:12],919
much and and gone in about every
different direction that their head is

372
[00:28:12],919 –> [00:28:18],950
probably spinning as much as mine is but
but you know I I just enjoy everything

373
[00:28:18],950 –> [00:28:23],720
i’m one of those people that you know if
you hear if you watch the movie up you

374
[00:28:23],720 –> [00:28:27],740
know you see squirrel and the little
dogs like squirrel you know you focus on

375
[00:28:27],740 –> [00:28:31],490
that until the next thing comes across
and they’ll focus on that

376
[00:28:31],490 –> [00:28:35],570
so you know I’m very much like that and
I put myself into something with

377
[00:28:35],570 –> [00:28:39],350
everything that i can at the moment
until the next thing comes along and

378
[00:28:39],350 –> [00:28:44],899
then I jumped into that and so I just
hope to continue to do that and i hope

379
[00:28:44],899 –> [00:28:48],18
to somehow inspire some other people to
do the same thing

380
[00:28:48],19 –> [00:28:53],990
well I hope so too which like the plug
