Times Change but Dreams Stay The Same

It is very interesting to come back to this blog I started writing in 2004 and then rereading the last few entries in 2007. Lot's has happened since then particularly Venus Cow a free resource for anyone looking to help themselves to a lot of happiness. Looking For Harvey Weinstein has not sold a million yet but we continue to work towards that goal and everytime someone orders a copy we smile, not because of the money, anyone will tell you few get rich from writing a book but because we are one sale closer to the dream and if you can sell one of anything you can sell a million.
For those of you who haven't yet read the book, our dream of producing a TV smash is still alive and kicking. Real dreams never leave us, we just didn't have the time to focus our attention on it but just recently something happened out of the blue that shows hard work is never wasted and learning to be patient is a valuable skill.
In 2005 we pitched Mark Bos, (How Clean Is Your House) a senior executive at TalkBack Thames some concept or other around budget lifestyle. Six years later, yep you've probably heard the TV business is slow, we get a three word email from Camilla Lewis, commissioner Factual saying "Hilarious, come in."

So the meeting is on Thursday. We are not thinking too much about it. These days, where dreams are concerned we very much recommend going with the flow. We will do our best and accept the outcome as meant to be this time and in this circumstance, whatever happens.

We know now when you want something you
