Virtual show value
The switch happened before we knew it and tons of people were suddenly making things from home. Doing an IRL show without the live audience reaction, without the communal feel, without the environment, without the grandness, without the exclusivity, without the focus is like… a pizza without the mozzarella, sauce, or crust.

Gather your fans now!
The people who are truly dedicated to the entertainment you make probably is a smaller group than you hope, but it is probably also bigger than you might imagine.

Email newsletters can be easier!
When we get stuck writing a newsletter, developing an online audience, or trying to send out a message, it’s often because we’re trying to think about how to help ourselves / our biz. Once we switch the focus to our audience and serving them, things get easier and way more effective.

Get creatively unstuck and make something!
You’re not limited by your “creativity” you’re limited by your selfishness. It’s okay. Everyone has some selfishness. Creativity is not a measure of some magical power you have. It’s the evidence of how much you have created. Create things for people you love and you’ll be prolific.

Don't chase happiness in entertainment
Pursuing happiness is futile. Don’t chase dreams, chase goals. It’s more rewarding and it can help you be more prolific and fulfilled. You can get what you really want from entertainment — that spark that got you into this: service. I am now doing full-on classes for show business people. Check them out now!

Creating an act that works
Your audience comes to you for guidance. You gotta tell them how to be entertained your way! Step up. Lead them. Tell them what you want and how to play the game. They don’t want to be in the driver’s seat. Master entertainment by being the shepherd they seek. I’m doing online classes right now.
