The time when Lisa Wilkinson mentioned my name (on the tele)

Posted on February 2, 2012

Today was an exciting day. My name was on the tele. In full. Allison Tait. Oh, Kate Sykes, my co-author for Career Mums, did a brilliant three minutes on television, sharing all her expertise and the wonder of our book with the audience of Today. I was very proud.

Then Lisa Wilkinson mentioned my name. On the tele.

It was quite a thrill.

You can watch the whole thing, including the name drop, right here:

Kate is very good. A natural on the tele. Much like my name.

PS: I wanted to do that cool embedding thing, but it seems this is not possible if it’s not a You Tube video. Or maybe it’s just not possible if you are me…

    HI Sonia, you can get it at Dymocks, Indie bookshops, Big W, Kmart and Myer I think. Good luck!

    I am soooo getting this book, even though I am not just going back to work (I never stopped) but I need the balance part. Booktopis is out of stock, where else can you get this?? Regular book stores??. X

    Embedding is impossible if it isn’t youtube? Thank goodness it isn’t just me! I’ve been trying to add a 20 second video I took with my camera and failing miserably.

    Kate’s ‘hello to the kids’ was perfect. I loved that she did that.

    And, of course, couldn’t be prouder of Allison Tait. x

  12. Miss Pink

    Yay!! Congratulations!

    How impressive is Kate!
    Great work guys, love the book. I think many mums and soon-to-be mums will find it a valuable resource. x

    So proud! You rock big sis. You never told me how *hot* Kate is! Yummy Mummy! x

    Thanks everyone! I loved Kate’s shout-out to the kids too. Such a mum thing to do. 🙂

    I had Today on in the background yesterday morning and when Lisa said your name, I instantly thought “ooh I know that name!”. Very cool! xxx

    Lisa truly said your name with much eloquence, Allison;) Woo hoo! How exciting to not only have a book but have it shown on a morning TV show. You go girl! x

    One of my friends rang me and asked if it was my pink blogging fibro lady. I said it was.

    SO cool.

    It’s just so darn exciting. I can just imagine how you must be feeling. Really. Kate is so cute on the video – I love the little plug she sneaks into the end for her kids. Well I’m looking to go back to doing some kind of work, after, not 3 months, 6 months or 5 years, but 8 years!! I hope I’m not doomed, I may need to get your book when I’m back to my ‘real’ life. Well done 🙂

    Woohoo! How exciting! You two are doing so well with the book. I saw it mentioned in one of the mags I was reading this week. Very cool indeed.
    I’ve had the same problem with embedding vids from the Today show. Instead, I take a snapshot/image of the video, upload it as a photo in my post and link the photo to the clip on their site. So when people click on the photo it sends them direct to the video.
    Or you could just do a link! 😉

    FISTPUMP.

    I think so little of myself that when I first saw your book I thought, well that’s not for me, I don’t work or have a career.

    But I really DO, I’m just doing it all from fecking home, struggling with the balance and time.

    I am so buying your book … I have a feeling it will be SPECTACULAR.

    PS You can totally embed. When you are composing your post, go to HTML mode and insert the embed code that you can get from YouTube. Email me for further helpdesk.

    PPS Totally said fecking instead of the real f-bomb. Am so klassy on your blog.
