Have you ever watched the Big Idea with Donny Deutsche ? I like it a lot. Great Show. He has Rachael Ray on tonight and from what I gathered from the show. She was living in upstate NY working in a grocery store and had self published a cooking book that sold pretty well locally. It some how made it's way to the green room of the Today show. Many of the guests would read the book and one day there was a snow storm and the producers needed someone to fill a spot. They saw the book and called Rachael. She was shocked but came down to the show and did her cooking presentation on tv. The next day the food networked called her. They talked her into doing a her own cooking show. Then the head of the Food Network talked with her after the show got started and asked her where this could be taken to the next step. Now she is on daytime tv! Can you imagine that?

Rachael had the energy and was ready to go when the opportunity presented itself.

I have a lot of respect for her.

What's your view on this story?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I did more research and found this on wikipedia.

Her first job was at the candy counter at Macy's in New York City, where she eventually managed the fresh foods department. She later helped open a New York City market. Moving back to upstate New York, Ray managed Mister Brown's Pub at The Sagamore, a famous hotel on Lake George. From there, she became a buyer at Cowan & Lobel, a gourmet market in suburban Albany. Ray credits the concept of 30 Minute Meals to her experience working at the store where she met people reluctant to cook. She began teaching a cooking course there showing people how to make meals in thirty minutes or less. With the success of her "30 Minute Meals" classes, WRGB, the local CBS TV affiliate, asked her to appear in a weekly segment on their newscasts. This, along with a public radio appearance and the publication of her first book, led to a Today Show spot and her first Food Network contract in 2001. Later appearances on the Today Show followed, and she and Katie Couric became very good friends.

This quote was on her wikipedia entry: I thought this was a great quote.

To critics of her shortcut techniques, Ray responds, "I have no formal anything. I'm completely unqualified for any job I've ever had."

All I can say is that you better pony up a few bucks and register GopherHaul.TV to be ready when you hit it big.
