I was working as a dental nurse when one of the companies we sold toothpaste for asked me to represent them on QVC as a guest for ‘Janina whitening toothpaste’.
I did it as a favour and was paid in toothpaste! Well from there I was asked if I would audition as a QVC presenter and several months later. Out of thousands of applicants, to my bemused surprise, I got the job!
I was looking back through some old photos and thought I’d share these with you. I always try to appreciate every moment and never forget where I came from and how blessed I have been. When I saw my lighted mirror in my dressing room I was so excited! Don’t ask me why, it’s just kind of special.
The photo in our salon set (left) is of myself and Dickie, one of our talented floor managers. It was taken on a day when I had to present ‘Nads’ hair removal system without a guest or model for 12 minutes!
Dickie volunteered to let me wax his legs for the demonstration. What a star..of course we were a bit cheeky with the chatter along the lines of ‘Got unwanted hair? Get your ‘Nads’ out!’ Ok, enough said about that, and moving on…
One of the very best things about my job is something I hadn’t anticipated at all when I started and that is the contact I have with so many of you. Letters, cards, emails and even meeting up with some of you. You’ve no idea how special you’ve made my journey so far. I mean that with all my heart.
I hope you can find time to join me on Saturday 27th December at 11am for my hour-long 5th Anniversary show. I have chosen everything for the show. Some of my all-time favourites.
I’d like to wish you all a very merry Christmas. Thank you for all your kind support in 2008.
