Martha Stewart |On Stewardship

The Innovator Is A Ninja

Martha Stewart has been a lifestyle ICON since the early 80’s. Has it been that long? The crowd was very excited, as Martha took questions from the audience. The questions included everything from baking tips to environmental stewardship! Martha is an advocate for the humane treatment of animals. On her New Bedford farm, she raises her chickens under humane conditions.

 The day I met Martha Stewart for the first time, I was Sheila on the beat! I was determined to get my questions answered. Her assistant said it would best to get my questions answered during the media press conference. My thoughts were, “What if later never came?” Sometimes you just got to take a risk! The worst that could happen is that I wouldn’t get my questions answered.

Martha Stewart was distracted when I met her. She was concerned about the background setup. I had only a couple minutes before I had to exit the question and answer section. As I began to ask my questions, the photographer interrupted us by asking us to pose. 

I did not get my questions answered that day, because of the interruption but I gained valuable experience as a communicator.

Next time I meet Martha Stewart, I will be prepared.
