Shamele Jordon March Member of the Month

Shamele Jordon March 2017 Member of the Month

Becoming member of the month, just one month away from obtaining the life goal of producing and airing a TV show on genealogy, is amazing. Facebook just reminded me that one year ago was DAY 1 for the production of "Genealogy Quick Start". Now on April 5th, 2017 6:00 PM it will air on PhillyCam. I'm still trying to take it all in.

One thing that I have learned as I pursued this goal is that once you really decide, imma do this thing, and commit to it, the universe conspires to make sure that you get it done. Another thing that I learned is that when you are feeling exhaused or discouraged, what you really should do is stand up and jam. "Pushing On" by Oliver $ and Jimi Jules (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pgxb3WbBx5Q) has gotten me through the past few weeks. (lol)
