Media Mania

It's been a busy, busy day. As I mentioned yesterday, the fun started early with a TV interview on Bloomberg TV. I was hoping that they would post a link to the interview, but they didn't post it on their site. However, I was very pleased with the result. I think it went very well. It's been a long time since I last did live TV. Most of my interviews are either radio, print, or video.

When I got back to the office, I had another interview request waiting for me. This one was from Business News Network. I wasn't familiar with them because it is a Canadian TV station. But I was pleased with the interview. I wasn't as smooth as with the Bloomberg interview, but it was a studio I had never been in before. I think I might not have been as focused as I was with the Bloomberg.

In between the two TV interviews, I was interviewed by a reporter with The Globe and Mail, a newspaper out of Toronto, I believe. Doggone it, they're lovin' me in Canada! Nah... They caught my name from another article from the AFP.

For me, this was really exciting because it was my chance to talk about one of the hottest initial public offerings (IPO) in years as well as a record-breaking IPO. It was me talking about what will become a small piece of Wall Street history, which is just fun. I was raised with in a household where I was constantly surrounded with stuff about Wall Street, the stock market, and trading. To me, it's a great institution, whether you're a capitalist or not. It's about the constant surge of chaos that analysts are desperately trying to make sense out of with limited information while human emotion overwhelms logic.

So... if I can just get this kind of media buzz about my book I will be in pretty good shape.
