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

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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! ;)

  3. 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 :-)

  11. 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. 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.
