this morning I did an interview with legendary rocker John Garcia.
It was my first interview with John, I had previously had one scheduled but it fell through.
admittedly i’ve been aware of John and his importance to rock music for sometime, but only really given him the attention.
i hadn’t done a phone interview for months now and i’ve been trying to fit them back into my busy schedule.
For me phone interviews are more important than in person, you have the distance, sometimes a delay, accents.. so many barriers you need to overcome to get that personal connection with the talent and it doesn’t always happen, but it’s so rewarded to me when it does.
John is a chatty person by nature, but I could have talked to him and he to me for hours it seemed. He was so open about his emotions, history and personal life and seeming it was his last interview after a day of press it was lovely to have such enthusiasm from him.
so this past month i have put myself out there, taken risks, chances, new opportunities and i feel today, as i sit here too exhausted to even move off the couch that they are paying off.
having diversity, interesting people and a gratifying work life is all i need.
Exciting times ahead! So many ideas bubbling under the surface. So many things on my ‘to-do’ list. Visiting fabulous Melbourne next week!
an early start to pre-record some radio :)
i started with a new job today and it’s so amazing how being surrounding in a positive, encouraging environment can change your headspace in just one day.
being back in an industry that i love and know, having the focus to put my energies into freelance work again.
and i’m back in the game
i’ve spent the past week applying for a few Sydney based presenting jobs, which is exciting and scary.
fingers crossed i’m what they’re looking for.
fingers crossed i get some feedback!
here’s to making my dreams come true.
after trying to find someone work on an audition video for me I resorted to doing it myself and although i had to make some social changes i did it and it feels great!
GO TEAM CASSIE
now let’s cross our fingers for this job everyone!
