This Website Is About…

Seems like it wasn’t that long ago that the big boss at CNN called me into his office.  I thought he was calling me in to tell me what a great job I had done on breaking news that day.


Turns out, he called me in to tell me that after more than 12 years, CNN would not be renewing my contract.  I never asked, “Why?”  Something deep down told me this was about something bigger than just a boss who didn’t appreciate my talent and skills.

It was a really hard time for me–out of work, single, no kids. Certainly, not the life I had dreamed of for myself.

I read in one of the many inspirational books that I was clinging to a phrase that really stuck with me.

“Create what you seek,” it said.

I certainly was seeking to look for anything uplifting, to give me hope, to see how folks overcome their obstacles.

That’s why I created this website where every story fits the theme, “Show The World What’s Possible!”

I figured that traditional news is important. It’s vital to be informed. It’s just as important to be inspired.

I know focusing on this content has helped me. In the years since leaving CNN, my career is back on track. Most joyously, I’ve gotten married for the first time and have the family I’ve always dreamed of having.

Along the way, my husband discovered this geeky, amazing hobby of collecting frequent flyer miles without flying.

It means we are able to travel around the world in luxury for mere pennies.

So many folks have asked him how he does it, I’ve now created a page where he shares many of his secrets and tips.

Thanks for hanging out with me here and showing the world what’s possible!

If you like this kind of content, please spread the word.

    Daryn, I used to watch you and Bill Hemmer back in the day on CNN. I simply don’t understand CNN’S reasoning for letting you go. Anyway, I don’t watch them anymore. I like your positive approach to the news and I pray God continues to richly bless your effort. We all need more good news these days.
