Video 4: What is holding you back

What is holding you back?

In the past couple videos we looked at where you are now and where do you wanna go. It is so important that you spend some time on this. It will become your road map and will help you to stay focused on your goals. Today we look at Whats holding you back. 

Why do you want this so bad. Your answer may determine  your success.

It takes hard work and dedication to make it as a success as an Entertainer and for most things worth having. We all have struggles and challenges. Even though those challenges may vary from one person to the next, we all have challenges we need to overcome. When your WHY is big enough you will face your fears one by one and your odds of success will increase dramatically.

Take a look at the videos below.  We all have our challenges. It's what you do about it that counts.

Be sure to look for my next video. I am going to show you how to get more money the next time someone calls you with a gig offer. This next video could help  you to pay for this entire course in one phone call.

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.
