The best part of the year has been meeting creative, innovative people, according to Rohrback. The toughest part has been running her business almost entirely alone.
"This past year has introduced me to the hypercritical life a celebrity experiences, and that's not necessarily easy medicine to swallow," she said. However, she revels in experiencing what she calls "the groundswell of joy and fun I've obviously been able to deliver to masses of people all over the globe … autographs, pictures with me and hugs."

She's also been "doin' some walkin'," as the video says. "Prior to May I hadn't flown by plane or gone very far since 2000," Rohrback said. "Now it's been several trips to L.A., multiple trips to New York, a trip to Chicago, Washington D.C., and Indiana."
For all the laughs, she's dead serious about the benefits of the exercise she created.
"When the dust finally settles, I hope people will begin to really grasp the true essence and depth of my Prancercise program," Rohrback said.

"I'm not rich, and I'm not poor," she told me. "I'm making a living doing what I love and believe in so much, and for that I'm thoroughly thankful."
