Thank you for visiting my Patreon page to see what the podcast and blog are all about.

I have a constant gnawing in my gut and a voice in my head which drives me to perform, entertain and enlighten. Now I realize that gnawing is my destiny calling to me (It only took me 35 years to listen to that voice.) telling me to pursue my bliss.

My bliss had all but faded away because I had to get a "REAL" job and have "SECURITY." I knew that I loved performing and presenting at a very young age. But the average person could not make a living dancing or acting in the 80s. Sure I was a singing telegram messenger and even had a TV show on public access but it was not sustainable in the long run.

I spent over 30 years quieting my creative muse because I got messages like "Many are called but few are chosen" (From my mom!). But I will not ignore what I love any longer. I have been so busy making a living that I have lost most of my joy. So here I am on Patreon asking the masses to take part in my journey. Who knows, you might even find my content entertaining, thought provoking, informative or useful. This venture was impossible when I was an impetuous youth mostly because the Internet was not invented yet. But now creators can pursue their passions and have a chance to do what they love full time.

Ried Rants is a radio show (now podcast) that started on USF Bulls Radio. I started it while I was a "nontraditional" student (code for old lady attending university) pursuing my undergraduate degree. I continued my show during the pursuit of my master's degree as well.

In my business planning class our semester project was to create a business plan. My instructor noted how I "get excited" when talking about the show and she suggested that I draft a business plan around the show, website and subscribers. During my work and research for the business plan project I decided I would find a way to resurrect my bliss. So here I am, a work in progress, creating podcasts, blog posts and video logs for your enjoyment as much as mine.

Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy my creations.

Goals
$0 of $1,000 per month
My short term goal is to earn $1,000 per month in order to cover an increase in my overhead and to stay away from living in a box on the street somewhere. 

But seriously, patrons equates to better and more frequent  content. And $1,000 is a starting point. This amount will allow me to continue producing at least one podcast and blog post per week.

With regular monthly patrons and I will be able to get some badly needed upgrades to my earphones and other accessories needed in order to produce new podcast projects.

It will also allow me more time to research content and report on multiple viewpoints.
