Episode 60: Are You Asking the RIGHT Questions?

Performers can avoid BIG show mistakes by having the sense to ask questions about the venue and patrons.

 

Mistakes will certainly happen, that's an unavoidable truth but wouldn’t it be nice to prepare for some of the big mistakes? There is really nothing worse than showing up for a gig and realizing you're not right for this audience. Of course, you are a professional so you go on and give the best damn show you can but when its not a good fit, its not a good fit. But then there is planning a show with 6 dancers and an impressive kickline only to be met with a performance space that rivals your closet. Lastly, there is the need to change your clothes in the beer closet only covered by a curtain that MAY get closed when the bartender leaves. (True Story)

 

The Lesson: Ask the right questions to make better decisions about your performance.

Episode 59: Send the Follow-up

Trying to get booked is challenging, even more so if you are afraid to follow-up. Send the Second E-mail.

There are many reasons you have not heard a response about a performance opportunity and not all of them are bad. Sometimes e-mail boxes are not monitored, maybe this is not actually the preferred communication method. Not everyone stays on top of their email or checks their Facebook messages daily. Perhaps they are taking it under consideration, running it by other people and just has not gotten around to responding. This is why it is important and most times necessary to send a second follow-up email. In rare instances you may even send a third using an alternate communication method.

Episode 58: Get Out of Your Way

Performers face many obstacles in their career but the biggest one is that inner voice screaming “YOU CAN’T DO IT!”

That voice you hear is yourself. Ironically enough, you have control over that voice. The biggest obstacle will always be yourself. As a performer, you must eliminate that negative self-talk and just get going. You have fears, yes, but you also have dreams. Fear cannot ruin your dreams unless you allow it to happen. First, make the decision that your dream is worth fighting for, that it's worth breaking down obstacles. Then, get to work. Push yourself to grow and just keep going. Don’t look back.
