Help me welcome Cowboy Carew Papritz, author of The Legacy Letters on Tinsel Town Live https://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime

Tinsel Town Live with Miz Meliz Presents:

Author of The Legacy Letters, Carew Papritz

Wednesday, December 21, 2017, 6:00 pm Pacific Time

Carew is passionate about living the central message of his inspirational book, The Legacy Letters, by living life to the fullest. As a result, he’s done book signings on top of volcanoes, on horseback at Barnes & Noble, on whistle-stop book tours on Amtrak, while river rafting, on top of the Space Needle, outside The Today Show, and next to Niagara Falls!

carew-papritz-photo-low-resCowboy Carew, as he likes to be called, has created such national events as “The Great Legacy Letters Book Balloon Launch” in which kids sent aloft miniature versions of my book by balloon and then tracked how far they traveled. The event also helped such charities as The Make-a-Wish Foundation, Reading is Fundamental, and the Military Mama Network by creating a world record!

With his background of working on feature films in Hollywood, Papritz has created a number of YouTube videos series that help promote kids to read more.  One series called, “I love to read and . . .” has him reading The Legacy Letters while actually doing various activities such as skiing over a cliff, riding a horse, walking up to a castle, and much more! He loves a good adventure!

3d_book_comp_5awards-lo-res-pngIn the spirit of the book, Carew has done TV and radio interviews that include such topics as, “How to write the Perfect Love Letter for Valentine’s Day,” “How to Get Your ‘i-Kid’ Back to the Holiday Table,” “How to Create the Perfect Gap Year,” “How the Olympic Games Made Me an Award-Winning Author,” “How to Reconnect with Family in This Technology-Drenched World,” and the incredibly cute, “How to Write the Perfect Letter to Santa Claus!”

“If I get to walk my talk, live my book, and inspire people to do the same—while being outdoors—then I’m a happy man!” ~Carew Papritz

book-balloon-launch-bostonCowboy Carew Papritz really loves sharing with the world the inspirational stories that people have revealed to him about their lives from their reading “The Legacy Letters.”  H finds their stories to be moving, heart breaking, fantastical, and soul humbling.  He also loves talking about how kids can be inspired to read more by making reading seem more cool and exciting with his book adventures.

Farewell Tinsel Town  – Hello Inspiring Adventures!

Carew had this idea when we first planned doing an interview together…he wrote on my form:

“A suggestion:  How about doing a special video segment where we walk the streets of Hollywood, Sunset Blvd area, UCLA, and/or other areas while talking about my transition from UCLA Film School, working on features, music videos, and commercials to then becoming a working cowboy in Arizona while writing a multi-award winning book?  Might be a fascinating segment.  Let me know what you think?”

I was wowed by this idea! Carew seemed to have an insight about the direction I wanted to go with my interviews. So, we will be walking and talking on my first interview in a new series: Inspiring Adventures with Miz Meliz. Watch for it in late February 2017.

Thank you to everyone who allowed me to interview them on Tinsel Town Live this year. It really is my very own passion project. I love doing it and I am looking forward to seeing how it will grow and flourish in 2017 as part of A Year in Bloom! with love and gratitude, Melissa @MizMeliz

Meet Lou Redmond

I was so looking forward to meeting this fascinating and inspiring man! Our values are aligned and I always find it remarkable when someone has an awakening at a young age. Any age younger than me is young, okay! We all have the propensity to learn these lessons if we pay attention. I believe that Lou is an inspiration because he listened. He reacted. He acted. Look at him now!

“I do yoga, read, and travel. This past 18 months I’ve been to 3 countries on travel retreats that focus on volunteering and adventure.I’m currently working on finishing up my book project. It tells the story of my personal transformation and how I quit my 9-5 to pursue my passion. I’m also very passionate about meditation and working on creating ways to help people in their practice and promote it’s benefits.”

Being a Guest on #CreativeLife with @AlexiaAnastasio @Tenminitt

Posted on July 5th, 2016 by & filed under Connecting People, Everything Miz Meliz, Interview, See the Video on YouTube

When Alexia asked me to be a guest on her show, #CreativeLife, my initial reaction was, Yes, of course! Anything to help a friend. I had no idea that I was the friend being helped!

2016-07-02 03.33.48Being interviewed by Alexia was a much needed boost. A boost in the pants to get going and further pursue my own creative life. An ego boost that helped motivate me to keep doing what I have been doing. It is such an honor to be interviewed!

Thanks to Alexia I learned more about a program that she has been using for live stream – Sqeeqee.com

We also talked about the benefits of crowdfunding and using Patreon.

Alexia asked me about my journey and my background as well as what I do and want to do in the future. She is a great interviewer!

2016-07-02 03.36.48I learned more about Alexia and her background, too! I am impressed at how many stokes she has in the fire. She is an accomplished actress, director, and entrepreneur. She will surely be a featured guest on Tinsel Town in the Fall.

We had so much fun in the interview, but especially doing the promos for it on Snapchat, Facebook, and Periscope!

Tinsel Town Interview with @ChrisKubby @TenMinitt

Posted on June 16th, 2016 by & filed under #SPARKLE Tinsel Town Tonight Interviews, Connecting People, Everything Miz Meliz, See the Video on YouTube, Tinsel Town Live 2016

This week I had the chance to interview Chris Kubbernus, an internationally known digital marketing expert, that I met through social media.

“Kubby” joined me online from Copenhagen, Denmark, where he works and lives with his family.

We had a lovely conversation and Chris shared his background with us. I asked him about his core values and he gave us insights as to why he does what he does.

I enjoyed getting to know Kubby better and I was pleased to find that my first impressions of him were accurate – he loves to help people succeed in their business and is motivated by making the world a better place. That is why I think he is a SUPER STAR!

See the video of our interview here and enjoy a game of “Hollywood Squares” style trivia that we played. It was a fun and light way to get to know each other and spend a little time with the audience. I will be hosting other trivia games online every Tuesday night this Summer – I hope to see you there!

Show Notes:

Chris likes to see movies. He is passionate about marketing, social media, Snapchat and building businesses.

Chris likes to do a lot of q & a and he talks about how businesses will use content in the future to promote themselves.

Check out Kubby’s tips for social media on his blog: http://www.chriskubbernus.com/blog/video-the-future-of-social-media/

Topics we will discuss:

Social media, business, marketing, branding…and “The Brady Bunch!”

The next interview I am doing is with Bridgette Alexander, the author of a new novel in the #CelineCaldwell series called, “Southern Gothic.” It is a Young Adult book and I look forward to reading it and reviewing right here on MizMeliz.com and meeting Bridgette when she does her book signing in Los Angeles.
