Episode 6: Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

“I’m not good enough”

“I’ll never be as good as ______”

These phrases are confidence killers. We have to stop judging ourselves based on the success of others.

When you say things like this you are actually making it harder to grow as an entertainer and as an artist. You have to be OK with people being better than you. There will always be someone that is better than you, has better shows, gets paid more, has more success; and you have to embrace the challenge. Stop tearing yourself down and focus on what you need to work at to get to the level of success that you desire.

Episode 5: Are you Ready?

What if your dreams were handed to you today? Would you feel ready? Are you confident enough to accept the next step and take it?

Every opportunity should be viewed as a once in a lifetime opportunity but if you don’t feel ready for the next step you may miss out…permanently. Whether you are “still working on it” or “not good enough yet,” you have to get past those feelings in order to allow yourself to move forward as an entertainer.

Even if you are just starting out, the next step may be just getting on stage for the first time. What if you are AMAZING? You may never know if you don’t just take that leap of faith in yourself.

Episode 4: It’s not about you

What is the difference between a crowd and an audience? Mainly Everything.
Crowd are people gathered and an Audience is gathered to spectate. A great entertainer can turn a crown into their audience and turn an audience into their fans and followers.

So you turn a crowd into your audience?

Provide an Experience to pull them in.

How do you turn your audience into your fans?

Realize that the audience is the reason we get on stage. We are sharing our art and the audience is there to experience it.

Being on stage is NOT about you.

Episode 3: Pushing Yourself to Grow

It can be tough to continuously push yourself to get better and to grow as an entertainer. Every time you step on stage you should be giving 150%, don’t plan on being just ‘OK.’ Performing on stage requires a plan to be amazing each and everytime.

So how do we do it?

It requires finding the source of your motivation and use it to push yourself. Maybe it’s the audience response, maybe it’s the vision of what the performance will look like, maybe it’s the feeling you get when you are in front of the audience. We Want to turn our audience into our fans and in order to do that continually we have to push ourselves to be better today than we were yesterday.
