Video 3: Where you wanna go?

Where are you heading?

In order to get the most of out of life and your career as an entertainer it is important  you figure out where do you want to end up. Start with the end in mind.

Your reason WHY will help you to overcome the challenges. In this video below young Justin Rhodes simply wanted to make his father proud. I think that is a goal many of us share. I hope you find a little inspiration in Justin's audition on America's Got Talent

Any one care to share where you heading? Would love to hear what you have planned for your life's adventure. Please leave comments below.

Video 2: Entertainer vs. Entrepreneur

Entertainer vs Entrepreneur

One of the reasons why Entertainers struggle to find good gigs on a regular basis is because they do not think like Entrepreneur. This one little change in the way you think could lead to hundreds of good gigs.

We would love to hear your thoughts on this matter. Please post your comments or questions below the video.

Getting hundreds of gigs is simple

I will say it again, getting hundreds of gigs is simple. But its not easy. It takes knowledge, persistence and continuous effort.

It amazes me that a magician will spend $100’s of dollars on magic tricks and a guitar player has 4 very expensive guitars but neither one has invested even a $100 into a good looking business card. And I hope you noticed I said “INVESTED”  into business cards not SPENT on business cards.

I would also be willing to wager that the majority of entertainers spend 20 hours a week rehearsing either on their own or with their group but they won’t INVEST an hour a day on really going after the gigs. And I hope you noticed again that I said INVEST an hour a day not SPEND and hour a day on getting more gigs.

SPENDING time and money means your time and money is gone forever.  INVESTING time and money on promoting your talent could bring you results beyond your wildest dreams if you INVEST your time and money wisely.

Building a successful career as a professional entertainer is no different that building a house. It takes time, money and a GOOD PLAN.

Have you ever heard the famous phrase ” Build a better mouse trap and the world will beat a path to your door”?  Well its not true. You could be the best juggler or singer in the world but if you don’t learn how to market and promote your skills, you will get the same result as the guy with the better mouse trap that no one knows about.

INVESTING a little time and money into learning how to could very easily provide amazing returns on your investment.

Going after gigs without being prepared can only lead to more frustration.

The Entertainer Bootcamp will start you in the right direction with some free videos, helpful suggestions and proven techniques.
