This Monday was the commemoration of two historical events, the national holiday in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday and the 57th Presidential Inauguration. While both events celebrate the accomplishments of outstanding Americans, it was very poignant that the second inauguration of the first African American President fell on the birthday of African American civil rights leader and fellow Atlantan Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. whose mantra was "all men are created equal." As I sat in my white folding chair listening to
President Obama's address to the nation, I realized how proud I am to be an American where everyone has the opportunity to excel if they are willing to work hard. Whether you agree with President Obama's platform or not you have to agree that it is a blessing to live in a democratic nation where everyone has a voice, choices, and the ability to vote.
In this week’s episode, my husband and I made some choices. After meeting with several production companies, we chose to use Watch it Now (WIN) to produce our Phine Body workout video series. After meeting with Will Hobbs and Darren Capik and reviewing their extensive resume, we decided they were the most qualified company. They are one of America's leading fitness video production companies touting sales of over 30 million fitness videos a year. This fact along with their equally impressive client list, which includes notable fitness icons such as Jane Fonda, Billy Blanks, Suzanne Somers, and Tara Stiles, assured me that they were the perfect company for us. Surprisingly, we were able to do two videos for less than the price Kenya quoted us for one. Even with the lower production rate and better expertise, they never asked for a back end percentage or any ownership in our video, but most importantly, the production was seamless. They effortlessly worked out all the details with no drama, which was quite refreshing. Their customer service and staff were equally as professional. We sincerely appreciate everyone who has and is supporting our fitness venture. Volume II of our Phine Body workout series, which is a complete body sculpting regime, will be released in the next two weeks!

While this matter has been challenging because my professionalism and character was questioned, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands a times of challenge and controversy."
