Why America’s Treasures….

August 21, 2013

 

America’s Treasures is my passion.  It’s an exploration of people, places and things about America in categories of Entertainment, Arts, Geography, History, Sports and General Trivia.  I love discovering the stories behind trivia questions!  I’ve been collecting stories for over 20 years.  The first set of stories for the show were actually put into a Trivia Game named Trivia Louisville.  Stories like Tom Cruise’s connection to Louisville, Kentucky and the Happy Birthday song being created by two school teachers.  Every community has numerous stories to tell.  Most are not even recognized until someone like me, comes to the community and uncovers the treasures hidden there.  I am fascinated by all the heritage that has created the foundation for America.  I enjoy sharing that fascination in the stories shared with you on America’s Treasures.Image

How we discover.

August 19, 2013

Often, I am asked how we discover treasures.  The answer is simple.  We go on a search for interesting facts. One question leads to another which sends us on a journey to talk with various people in different places.  Eventually we uncover “little known” facts! Then we know we have discovered a real treasure. 

I’m always surprised at how many stories are not known except by those who hold the story.  To those keepers of the story, their knowledge doesn’t usually seem like anything important to share.  And why should it?  In many cases, they have known the story for over 30 years!

Vicki Lea's Blog

I am often asked to write or speak on various topics.  I’ve been asked to write books on media, on Christian topics and on an autobiography (go figure).  Speaking includes America’s Treasures stories, my life filled with miracles, inspirational topics, business entrepreneurship and “out of the box” thinking for television and movie projects.  In the past 10 years, I have turned down publishing offers which included multiple books.  I have also passed on investment deals which involved upwards of $20 Million dollars into my ventures. 

For the most part, I wanted to stay focused on the primary topic – America’s Treasures, before I contributed my efforts to additional topics and concepts.  All of the topics above though, and more, have been ones that I have lived.  So I know each subject, first hand.

Since I keep being asked to share my knowledge, I’ve decided to write regularly on the topics…
