Hello Delightful Souls!
Here is a list of the TOP 10 FAQ’s…
So, here we go… I’ve answered the questions to the best of my current ability…
10. What channel is the show on?
9. Can I see the show in my country?
YES! Of course. If you have internet access you can watch the show anywhere/anytime. So please… enjoy!
8. What is a web series?
As per Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_series
A web series is a series of episodes released on the Internet or also by mobile or cellular phone, and part of the newly emerging medium called web television. A single instance of a web series program is called an episode or webisode.
7. Do you need assistance with filming?
Always! Are you offering your services? Send me an email and let me know what skills you have! email@example.com
6. How do you find your guests?
Today, finding my guests has become much easier. We find each other, through networking and sometimes I ‘cold call’ or contact prospective guests via email. I share about what the show is about and ask if they’d like to be on it. Sometimes, I surprise myself.
Let me know if YOU are interested… Always looking for entertaining and knowledgable guests!
5. How can “I” be on the show?
Easy! Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 626.755.6779
4. Are you going to do ‘virtual’ shows?
You mean like through ‘Skype’? or on ‘Live Stream’? I hope so… I’m looking into what equipment I’ll need and when I can get the technical part down (no problem), there will be an announcement. Looking forward to having conversations with people all over the world! The idea really gets me excited!
3. What has been your favorite topic to date?
This is the most difficult to answer, because every topic and guest has been hand-picked by me. I am passionate and excited to present them all! The Astrology show with Divine Harmony stands out… I’ve always had a deep fascination with Astrology and the Shadow. Divine’s expertise really inspires me. Hopefully, we will see her this season too!
I’m giving a shout out to all my guests!
Lorinda Rainwater, Reinaldo Robinson, Alicia Gargaro-Magaña, Dr. Ray Doktor, Joanne Cohen, Indira Parsons, Divine Harmony, Joyce Schwarz, Dot Todman, Jsu Garcia, Corey Jenkins… THANK YOU!
2. Why don’t you film on a set?
The show was set up to be mobile, ‘on the fly’ ‘gorilla style’… One shot with minimal editing. With the challenges that I have encountered over the past year with sound, camera issues, filming locations (which I don’t see until I get to the shoot) and lighting… I’d love to evolve to a more stability in filming and editing. Will shall see. I’d like to have it remain organic, so who knows…
The #1 Most Frequently Asked Question is….
How do you make money doing your show?
The answer is… I Don’t. Not yet anyway… The show has been a passion of mine over the past year, an offshoot of my “Wayshower” Blog, coaching practice and a natural (albeit challenging) evolution of my personal growth.
As the show has evolved and requests come in with the desire for a more polished look, I am seeing how important it is to find a way to monetize the production… to pay for itself. My camera is on loan from the father of my beautiful son – he creates shows for television. I’m editing on my small Macbook and have taught myself the technical aspects.
Last week I added a PayPal Donation button on my websites and on my posts… For those compelled to donate towards the show’s production. I’m looking to offer advertising packages soon to also assist in the funding for the show. If you have any ideas that you’d like to share, I’d love to hear them!
Thank You For Your LOVE Donation…
Thank you all for your interest and support… I enjoy and appreciate the feedback, comments and questions! As I’m writing this post, I’ve begun the edit of an incredible show for May and can’t wait to ‘tease’ it – hopefully by the middle of next week!
Blessings to you all!

This morning I was speaking with a friend and he asked… “What are you working on now?” Pausing for a moment, I grinned and responded with a ‘laundry list’ of projects for the show.

- Preparing for a shoot on Saturday for the May Episode – Stay tuned for details!
- Designing new business cards – with a new logo and look
- Participating in Online Webinars/Teleseminars for Social Media and Marketing – Several times a week for upgrade of skills

… this friend? He just shook his head and laughed, “What? That’s All?”
Wishing all the very best… ‘Til next time!
The SEASON FINALE of ‘The Selina Ray Show’ Episode 9
November 1, 2011 at 7PM (PT)!
Filming is complete and the next guest is InDepth Astrologer & Writer, Divine Harmony… she’s also my personal astrologer and someone who has provided me with tremendous insight and information. I feel Honored & Blessed to share her with you.
All that I’ve been experiencing with regards to this show, my work and life – just so happens to be indicated as potentiality in my Astrological Chart… kind of Amazing, this wonderful tool!
Check out the “teasers” here at The Selina Ray Show or at the show’s YouTube Channel
Join me as I sit down with Holistic Health Coach, Joanne Cohen – to discuss Holistic Health… Healing the Physical, Emotional and Spiritual body.
Tuesday, September 6th at 7PM (PT) at The Selina Ray Show Blog and on my YouTube Channel
NOTE: The show is airing in 2 parts this month [a temporary change occuring with my taking over as Executive Producer]… Ahhh! Change! Don’t you just love it
Preparing for a shoot…
What does that mean?
I thought I’d give you a Peek inside what goes into a shoot… It’s Simple!
- Charge - Kodak HD1080p
- Clean Lense
- Pack tripods (3 styles, depending on the location of the shoot)
- Directions to the location
- Bottle of water
I prepare them prior, sending an overview & potential questions to my guest… I then leave them on my table at home. Why? I want the show to be a conversation – not necessarily an interview… I wrote the notes and I’m aware of what I’d like to know, so I go into every shoot with comfort. This allows for a fluid discussion… one which has the divine opportunity to be guided by ”Spirit”.
I enjoyed sitting down with Joanne Cohen for a one on one conversation regarding a Holistic approach to emotional & physical healing. She is a delight and filled with wonderful knowledge… I am grateful to have this amazing opportunity!
Stay Tuned… ’The Selina Ray Show’ Webisode 7: Holistic Health with Joanne Cohen premieres September 6th at 7PM (PT)
Meet my next guest – Joanne Cohen.
Joanne is a Holistic Health Counselor, Birth Doula CD (DONA), Childbirth Educator (CAPPA) and Midwife Assistant.
Joanne and I will be sitting down to discuss Women’s Health issues – both Physical & Emotional and how a Holistic approach can heal and greatly benefit Women of all ages.
If you have any questions you’d like me to pose to Joanne… please feel free to comment or send me an email before Friday, the 26th! I’ll be happy to ask the question for you. And let me know if you would prefer to remain annoymous with your question!
‘The Selina Ray Show’ Episode #5? It was ‘in the can’… or so I thought. Ahh… such is Life! Going with the flow – saying this, is much easier than the actual ‘doing’ or ‘going’. With this I’d like to address the ‘what and how’ of the show, so here goes…
When I was approached to do the show, the producer and I envisioned pretty much what you’re seeing today… Raw, organic and with an ‘on the fly’ or ‘guerilla’ style. Low production and content driven. Frankly, with regard to the production… this is completely opposite of my personality – a detailed and perfectionist attitude… Another lesson for me, in Letting Go.
This all being said… Episode #5 looked to be everything I wanted it to be… My guest, she was/is perfect… the location and setting were ideal… We set up, began my traditional ‘one take’ filming… and then… Yes. Sound. A leaf blower down the canyon – oh… we still finished the conversation with the most amazing content, unfortunately… though the shoot was beautiful, inspiring, informative… the sound was distracting. I am disappointed, not going to lie, and… though, I struggled with whether to air ‘as is’ – I’ve decided to reshoot this particular topic. Why?… Because all my shows are an unrehearsed conversation, so… I’ll allow the flow to be what it is – I’m betting we’ll get a whole different show… Look for it… Airing in August!
So today… I am looking forward to shooting a whole new subject – haven’t settled on it yet…. And, I embrace the challenge..
There is no other way for me, but to always move forward, never stop… keep the faith and forever… be myself!
Be sure to watch… Epsisode #5! Tuesday July 5th at 7 PM (PT) at Web Series Network
Spent a few hours in Malibu, California at Gladstone’s with Producer Rich Mbariket… Shot a “Thank You” video for ‘The Selina Ray Show’, went over ideas for upcoming shows and walked the beach! You can see it was overcast… Perfect temperature for me!
Let me take this moment to say… Thank You!… for your continued support and all comments/feedback!
