How Much Do You Want to Meet Ellen DeGeneres?

Send to Kindle

How much do your want that goal of yours?

Maybe it’s to lose those unwanted pounds, or complete a degree, or travel to that one place in the world that is magical to you?

Whatever it is, how bad do you want it?

Do you want it so bad that you beg for it like a kid does? My granddaughter is master of the “Please, please, please, please . . .” technique, complete with jumping up and down, arms animated and variations of pitch and tone. Sometimes I gave in just to restore some peace and quiet.

Well, my friend, Erica Walls wants to meet Ellen de Generes something awful. I mean BHAG big! So much so that Erica has decided to post a letter to Ellen everyday in her blog, www.dailybrainfartstoellendegeneres.wordpress.com.

She has crossed the 100 day mark and although she hasn’t gotten a call or even a tweet yet, Ellen is following her on Twitter.

Erica began her blog on January 7th and explains on her About page why she began this

My name is Erica and this blog is tracking my daily emails to Ellen DeGeneres. I started writing an email a day to Ellen DeGeneres on January 7th 2012. Why am I writing her? Because I like her, she’s funny, I feel a connection to her and I CAN!  This is the year of DOING for me! Yes, I have turned 40 and soon after that age people start to do either crazier things or just give up. I AM NOT A QUITTER!

My emails to her are random and I have a tendency to ramble BUT, my words are sincere, deep and I think quite clever and funny (in a quirky way).  For this reason, I am referring to my emails as “brain farts.” They just bubble up inside and then they just have to come out.  And, like a fart, there’s little control over what you expel.  ALSO, you are only allowed 1500 characters in each email to Ellen on her website. So I do A LOT of editing – it gets ugly, choppy and vague at times…but hang in. The point is there, somewhere…I think.  Pretend you’re looking for Waldo or playing I Spy.You are probably wondering how long I will keep this up AND so am I…we’ll just have to see.  At least until I get invited on the show or die.  I would like one or more of the following things to happen: go to the show, be on the show, be a regular on the show, work for Ellen DeGeneres. That’s the plan, anyway.

As the year has gone on Erica’s posts have gotten more and more creative. In addition to commenting on the daily episodes, Erica has now added photos and video. One of my favorites is the video below.


How much do you want something?

Are you willing to stage a year-long campaign?

You may not feel as fervent about Ellen as Erica does, but surely you have big goal you’ve always wanted.

If that big goal is writing your book, I invite you to join me on Wednesday, April 18th at a free webinar to learn how to turn your existing content into the rough draft of your book. Dash over to register at http://www.abookin90days.com/webinarinvite


  1. this is AWESOME!! I love Ellen too! this lady is creative!! I Love it!!! I do so hope Ellen comes through for her — at least some tickets to the show!!!

    thanks, Flora, for posting this! I’m in the middle of revamping, resorting and rethinking so many things. But I haven’t really sat down with myself and asked — What is it that I really want to do?

    This post has helped with that! — off to do more “homework” LOLz!!!!

    • Hi Kimberly,

      I’m glad this post was helpful. Erica was a guest on my radio show once. I’m trying to get her back so she can bring me up to date on her Ellen adventure on the air.

  2. I sincerely don’t mean to be rude or mean but I think that the reason that ellen hasn’t mentionned her is because ellen probarbly doesn’t know about her as of yet since a lot of the information on fans that ellen hears are usually screened by her producers and she only has so many of them so its takes a while for ellen to actually know about stuff like this. ellen has staff memebers that reads everything on the internet that is related to ellen so maybe one of her staff members stumbled on this blog and sent it to the producers who have yet to see it. It takes a while for them I believe. So since word of your friend hasn’t yet reached ellen’s ears through her producers, the staff proabrbly in the mean time decided to follow your friend on twitter because ellen doesn’t manage it uniquely. Some of her staff memebers have access to it as well and sometimes they tweet for her. With that being said GOOD LUCK TO HER. I love ellen myself! So maybe one day she’ll strike lucky! Hope she does!

    I would love to meet Ellen to tell her my story. After losing my entire family in car accident including my mother, I feel like if I speak to her, she will be part of me after I was left alone. Thanks Ellen for accepting my request. Thank you! May God bless you!
