Hey guys! If you have been following my Twitter and Facebook updates, you would know that I have been working on the conceptualization and production of my talkshow lately. If you recall, I first shared the idea of the talkshow with all of you in one of my entries last Nov. In the entry, I shared the following:
A few weeks ago, I was just thinking about the developments thus far since I started pursuing my passion last year. I started off with the blog in Dec ‘08, expanded to 1-1 coaching officially in March ‘09, followed by speaking after that. Just last month, I began to actively give workshops, reaching out to people on an even broader scale. Regional expansion is in the plans for the next year, followed by intentional expansion.
I pondered aloud on what are other things I could do in order to reach out to an even larger audience. This is when the idea of a talkshow hit me. Something that’s Oprah Winfrey / Tyra Banks-esque. With a talkshow, it’s going to allow me to reach out to even more people than whatever mediums I’m using right now (with the exception of the blog). Not to mention that people who can’t afford my 1-1 coaching or workshops can still have access to what I have to offer. I can only imagine this will be a more impactful medium than any other mediums I have been utilizing so far, and the thought of it just excites me thoroughly!
Honestly, I have to say I’ve never had another idea that’s as vividly and deeply etched into my mind as this before! It’s been hovering my mind ever since it sprung in my head a few weeks ago.
At the moment, I’m letting this idea brew in my head as I focus on writing my book. For sure, this is going to be one of my top priority goals for 2010. LD One of my current ideas is perhaps to start it off as a blog TV, while working toward the end vision of a broadcasted talkshow like Tyra Banks Show (by the way, Tyra Banks is one of the few inspirational figures in my life).
Well, I’m extremely excited to share that production of the show is well under way now right now! . The Celestine Chua Show, or The Celes Show in short, is an online talkshow dedicated to helping you be your best self and live your best life. I really see this show as a key platform to 1) bring awareness to and 2) enable conscious discussions of pertinent, socially relevant topics and trends. For every episode, we intend to have special guests to share their views on the topic.
The Celes Show website just launched at http://celesshow.com, along with a 3 minute video prelude to the show . In this prelude, I share why I’m doing The Celes Show and some things you can be expecting for the upcoming episodes. Let me know what you think about the prelude and/or the show itself via the comments box – I’d love to know what’s on your mind!
Separately, since this is going to be a show about you, I want to know what you want to see on the show. I have already planned a list of topics to cover for the next few episodes, so please cast your votes as well as share other topics you want to see covered.
The first episode of The Celes Show is centered on Relationships and Valentine’s Day and it is scheduled to be up by 14 Feb. Stay tuned @ The Celes Show!
