Won't You Take Me To MickeyTown?
August 31, 2012
If a familiar 70's melody is now ringing in your brain, I'm sorry about that. But please let it serve as a reminder that this is Momentum week, and all roads lead to Orlando! This year's lineup looks to be the strongest yet, and anticipation is high for a fantastic event. The CMB staff has worked tirelessly, and we are the recipients of their efforts.
Most of the time when we're going or coming, the focus is on "takeaway". What did I get from the event or speaker? How can it help my station? And that's great. We should all be learning from everyone we come in contact with, every day. And we need to work to make ourselves and our stations better and stronger.
But let's also focus on leaving something meaningful behind, too. How can we contribute, in our own special way? Maybe it's spending time with a smaller market station, investing in their future. Possibly it's encouraging an artist or label rep, that what they do really matters, and that you're glad you can partner with them. Or, maybe it's something as simple as lending a hand moving chairs or setting up for a showcase, and helping the tired overworked person in charge of that function. How can each of us make a contribution that no one would have been able to do but us.
Whatever the situation, lets search for a chance to make a difference. It's really fun to look for those special opportunities. And capitalize when we recognize they are in front of us. Oh, and by the way....let's be kind to the service staff, too. They know who we are, and know Who we represent. Let's make sure we leave a good impression of Him behind when we leave.
You know the old saying, "leave it better than when you found it". Hopefully Let's hope that's the case this week, too! Orlando, here we come! Save a spot in the in the Rock & Rollercoaster line for me!
