I hope you enjoyed my last lifestyle segment “Work It Like An Olympian” on ABC 7. That segment seemed to breeze by quickly. It was over before I knew it. Since ABC 7 had a heavy news day, it really cut down on my time. The lack of time caused viewers to miss out on some awesome products. It sucks when that happens. Honestly, when you work so hard with the publicists and preparation there’s nothing worse than an incomplete segment. Thankfully, I got a ton of compliments from some viewers. My landlord even reached out to me and said I did an awesome job. As a broadcaster, I’m still really hard on myself. Since I’m not on a TV station full-time, it’s important that I knock it out of the park each and every time.
Instead of beating myself up, I decided to redeem myself. A couple of days ago, I did a FB Live demonstrating the products that were missed.
Round 2: What you missed on ABC 7 & GIVEAWAYS

In retrospect, I had more fun doing that than what I normally do on-air. I didn’t feel so rushed or pressured. I got a chance to connect with you all and be the zany Nekia people are use to seeing. Additionally, I think I did much better than what I did on ABC 7 that day. Being a journalist can be a difficult career and only the strong can survive! Thankfully I did. In the end, the companies really loved the additional piece that I did and they even shared it across their social media platforms. I figured that I’d share it with my readers on here too, just in case you missed it.
