I first met Richard Dyer five years ago at a job interview in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was the General Manager of WLWT. I interviewed there a couple times actually, but never made the move back to Ohio.
Richard's personality and energy were impossible to forget - even after knowing him for just a couple of hours. And as it all turned out - I did end up working for Richard after all... when he moved to D.C., where he is our General Manager at WUSA 9.
His leadership is genuine and his desire to learn as much as possible is evident from the daily motivational stories he tells.
As a mentor to me and a guru of self-improvement, he was the perfect "Minute Motivation" guest. I'm so thankful to have this chance to share his stories of being told no, finding his path, and making the most of his time with you.
Plus! The segment we ran from Richard's interview on air this morning on Get Up DC.
From my TV high heels, to the baseball cap I wear nearly everywhere else... I'm finding my voice in this blogging world.
