The Oprah Show

Appearing on the Oprah Show was a dream come true.  I called the show almost every week for six years, no luck!.  Each time I called show producers said "we are sorry, our on-air guest list is booked Mr. West."  I kept calling until I received an invite to the show.  A year after the Oprah Show appearance, I was a guest motivational consultant on NBC TV, and the rest is history.  I secured a long term position on NBC for 10 years. 


The key to success is persistence.  You have to keep trying and knocking until you receive a YES.  Most Importantly, you have to be ready to take advantage of opportunities when they come your way.  When I pursued my dream in television I didn't have a manager, agent, publicist, networking friends in the entertainment business, phone numbers or any referrals.  You have to be dogged in your effort to achieve your goals.  Every year is your year.  No dream is too big.
