Andrew Zimmern, Today Show, Andy Cohen and Atlantic City....A Day in the Life

Friends think I have the coolest job....and at times they are right!  Each week I have the opportunity to meet with magazine editors, go to photo shoots, spend time with clients, go to television studios, work with a smart group of women, and more.  Last week I spent half the day with Andrew Zimmern.  We kicked it off bright and early at Today Show and I ended the day in Atlantic City.  Here's a snapshot of the day:

Non-stop action from the second Andrew and I walk in the doors at NBC.  We arrived with Sacha Baron Cohen who is promoting his movie, Dictator.

Andrew and I had a nice chat in the greenroom with Andy Cohen who is launching his book, Most Talkative.

 I'm able to watch Andrew cook with Al and the gang a few feet away.

 Next we went across the street to People Magazine where Andrew shot a video to accompany his print story.

We took Andrew over to Men's Journal where he met with a group of editors to discuss story ideas.

After meeting with editors, Andrew shot a video for MensJournal.com

Then I hit the road and 2 hours later arrived in Atlantic City.  That's me just before giving a speech (about How to Build Your Brand) to a great group of women at the NJ Governor's Conference for Women.
