Education : Class Act


Today's Tip • Education : Class Act

To be the best one must practice their skill over and over again. Even the greats continue to practice through continuing their education. There are many classes out their to help further education in any field a person desires. For an actor, find a good acting class where you feel comfortable being involved in. Even owning a business, or living your life as a business, there are classes out there to help develop your mind in these fields. Being smart begins with saying yes to education. The rest is filling up your brain with knowledge.

Even successful people continue to take classes in their respected fields. They are successful because they wish to continue practicing simply to better themselves by keeping up with their craft / mind. This also includes seminars, or other educational programs. Yes, some of them will cost you money, as others will be free. The old saying is, “you get what you pay for.” This also works against a person's mind. If they pay nothing, they feel they are getting nothing. When they pay for something they take it more seriously. That's why seminars are vague and get you thinking.

A seminar is designed to have your brain start working without giving you defining objectives. The best seminars have you leave with new ideas, concepts and possibilities. Seminars will always lead you to a class. Which is good, you should be taking classes to help better your skill. Work hard, study hard, and become the hardest working person in your field to become the most successful working person in your field. Live your life everyday. It is your life, why live it and educate it, because you deserve to be a perfect Class Act of knowledge.

Inside, outside, maybe somewhere today?


Today's Tip • Inside, outside, maybe somewhere today?

As a performer, standing outside while others perform is a sign of disrespect. To that venue, performers and any promoters. The cliché always seems to work itself into a reality; A performer shows up a few moments before they perform, jump on stage, gets off stage and either leaves for the night or hangs around outside while the show goes on. This scenario is a common occurrence in entertainment. These same people who behave like this also get upset when others do the same thing to them while they are performing.

The fix; watch the whole show, arrive early enough so you can meet other performers and “network”. Most importantly, each venue or promoter may have things to go over with you. Like, set time, pay or no pay, what's going on, etc. How amazing you may or may not be on stage is canceled out by your respect factor before and after that show happens. Having a bad set, but being supportive is more powerful than having an amazing set and being disrespectful. It gets you less work.

Work with people and it will help you get further than you are today. It isn't a race. This world of entertainment is looking for the right people. That is determined by your professionalism. Where you stand is more than a metaphor for inside and out of venue, it is about where you stand in the world of professionalism. Take other people serious and they will do the same in kind. Think of your performance as a job, if you are late you could possibly be written up or fired. Give yourself that respect to run your business properly.

Band Together : Fire Code at clubs


Today's Tip • Band Together : Fire Code at clubs

Respect fire codes. Ignoring fire codes or people in charge of telling you to be aware of fire code does two things; Makes it so they won't ever work with you again, and also gets people very angry. When it comes to saving lives at a venue, a person's attitude against “a request” to not block that particular fire exits is moot. Any respectable owner will firstly be as nice as possible, then after that, it is pretty normally to see that owner be completely mean when telling a person more than once. When it comes to saving lives being nice only works for so long.

Read any story about people losing their lives because of fire codes being ignored. I promise you, it is never a happy ending. There is no adjusted reasoning to this rule. Leave the fire exits open, leave room for people to get out. No chance for any mess ups when it comes to lives. There is a right and wrong, and when you are in a place respect that you are always wrong when it comes to what that venue wants in-terms of keeping people safe.

We own “The Rose Theater”, and we have two rules; A) People's lives come first, B) Respect the venue. We are some of the kindest people in the business. We know the heartache and pain that goes into performing, and making something from nothing into a beautiful expression of art! However, break those two rules and we would rather you not be in the venue. If you destroy it, then you take it away from others. We are here for life first.

Band Together : Stage Sound;


Today's Tip • Band Together : Stage Sound;

“They go up to 11!”, “Why not just make 10 louder?”, “They go up to 11.” Lower your volume on stage. You want a great mix? Keep it low. Louder doesn't make it better. Most touring bands on festival stages place their amps in the back (off stage) and mic them up. At that point they are going through monitors keeping the volume controlled. Now the audience can understand what the singer is saying, and what the instruments are doing.

Most bands are not trained sound-people. Especially a trained sound-person in a particular venue, who gets paid to be there. Even if you are an amazing sound-person in a band, the person who works at that venue knows the room, the sound it uses and what works best for that venue. Take a moment and work with them, not against them. They want you to have the best sound possible.

If you are not Man-o-war then you are probably trying to stay away from their loudest record; or maybe you do want to beat their world record for loudest band. In that case, make sure you have the judge around to take note of it. Work with those doing sound. They really do want you to come off amazing. They are dealing with a bunch of people in different bands, and you are dealing with one person. Work cohesively with them and I promise they will do their best!

Band Together • This is my girlfriend, I mean merch table, I mean she is in the band!;


Today's Tip • Band Together • This is my girlfriend, I mean merch table, I mean she is in the band!;

Festivals, shows, even venues have a priority to keep the doors open. Let's start with the purpose. Bands coming to perform say whatever they can to get as many people in for free. They are forgetting there is a reason a door charge exists. There are bills. Let's forget about the bills and “how selfish” that sounds for an owner and more on to something important. What could be more important than bills?

A festival survives on income. Income allows a festival to carry on each year. Every person walking through that door helps that festival grow. Yes, over time more and more people will get “comps” (Free passes). At the beginning a festival is working hard to survive and grow. They start off small with little wiggle room, then open the doors for opportunity as time moves on.

Bands want free all the time for their Girlfriends, I mean well, whatever they are. Every dollar keeps that place open so people can perform. Remember, support venues, festivals, or shows. Those places want you to perform, respect that. However it seems few care about where and if they stay open. Places have life to them. For those that remember CBGB's or L'Amour in Brooklyn you will agree with me the life a venue breathes with.

The stress of success – Suc-stressful : If I build it, they will... not show up?


Today's Tip • The stress of success – Suc-stressful : If I build it, they will... not show up?

Booking an event, filming a movie, starting a band, or any other number of things where a person(s) comes up with a brilliant idea, to create something under the assumption that people will come because “it is indeed, brilliant”, needs to reevaluate everything. Speaking to a group of talented writers, I asked them each “Why should I hire you”. Well, most said they are were talented, awesome, good at what they do. One person said “I will make you money”, then following in formation, people added that reason to their personal reason too. Writers developing a script are not the ones making you the money. They are building you a “bi-product”. Money comes from something bigger than a “Bi-Product”.

Talking with comedians, musicians, and business, they all come up with the same plan; If I build it, people will show up. People will not show up, or buy anything you are selling, if they don't know about you. About your “Brand”. Marketing your Brand is so important, that most companies spend a Third of their start up money in this area. Creating a voice, image, style, and then pushing it in the faces of millions of people. This is where the money is made; made through the company spending money on marketing. Like a writer, they have a script, a studio then gets it made, and finally markets it to earn income. Musicians create music, then a marketing company or label push that brand to generate sales.

A strong truth in this business is talent comes second. People must know who or what you are before they can believe in spending hard earned money on it. Give them an opportunity to grow a relationship with you. Branding is difficult if you ignore it. You can even start by making it simple then slowly develop it into something grander as you learn more about your “Brand”. At least you are starting somewhere. Which in most cases is a great place to be. So why are they “not showing up”? Because they have no connection to your brand, your image, your want to pay to be involved. Remember; Bring “Awareness” to people which creates “Interest” that in turn generates “Sales”. This is the secret to marketing!

The stress of success – Suc-stressful : But I am so talented, what happened?


Today's Tip • The stress of success – Suc-stressful : But I am so talented, what happened?

How great you are rarely determines how well you do. In this life our actions speak louder than words. However, if people have never heard of you, or they really don't like you, then being talented means nothing. This business of life starts out with an idea; the strong survive. We're protected by a guardian/parent figure to ensure a child makes it into their teens at minimum. Being the strongest is basically being the best and most talented. However, surviving in life, and becoming successful at what you do, are different. Without a basic understanding of what gets you there vs what keeps you there, things can become a bit confusing.

You want to be the best at your job to keep working there, stay in entertainment as a valuable performer/creator, or continue maintaining whatever it is you love. Being the best keeps you around for only so long. You must do certain things to help both “obtain” and “grow” success. This is done with the 3 needs of success; Network, Market, and Practice. Each of these things are a product of effort. Networking is about who you know. The more people you know, and are nice with, the easier it is to get things going. Marketing is who knows you. When people know what you do, they'll make an effort to find you. If you are good at what you do, you'll be on the top of their list; which means, “Practice” your skill.

Letting go of this idea that being amazing will get you to the top without placing the correct effort into these specific areas will help greatly in achieving said goals. A little side tip on being suc-stressful, is when you think you are the best, and never show the courtesy of thanks for those around you, it can lead to a meltdown of anxiety. People will vanish when they are unappreciated. Be kind to people, it helps Networking and Marketing go so much easier. People will listen to those they like, and give ill reports of those they see as arrant knaves. So what did happen being as talented as you are? Think back on your time in your field; where are you now? Make changes and get where you want with effort!

The stress of success – Suc-stressful : In my head it was huge


Today's Tip • The stress of success – Suc-stressful : In my head it was huge

Setting up events, actions, and or moments are a job themselves. It always seems easier in the mind when setting these things up for accomplishment. Going through that list of things needed to make it amazing could be a task all itself. What you need, want, and where to get it all. Pumping the mind up for failure as a person sees it growing in their mind's eye of what is to come. On paper, in your head, or even during conversation; the act of discussing it far outweighs the major outcome of anything we place effort into. “In my head it was huge.”

It will always be huge in your head. Sometimes the event itself is not the issue. Have flying monkeys and tell no one and no one will see it. Again, marketing can do only so much. Proper marketing starts with an idea, a game plan, then making a direct effort into action forward. Who, what, where; these things define marketing. Who you are marketing to allows you a game plan of who is most likely coming. What you are marketing sets you up for direction. Know what you are marketing.

Where are you marketing? Where are you going to be? Where is everyone coming from? Where is a great way to look at it. Know all these things. For Where are these people coming from helps you determine your mileage of marketing. The radius from center point out to a 5 mile distance is your primary spot of attack. This space is to be hit every week at a minimum of twice a week. Once you have found yourself in the constant actions of that area, move out into the secondary area; 10 mile distance from your primary spot. Hit this a minimum of once a week. Bring the huge from your head into reality.

Motivation : Break the rules


Today's Tip • Motivation : Break the rules

Break the rules, not the laws. When you hear “this is the way it is done”, there is no harm in trying it another way. New ways to bring success to ourselves come from chance taking. Keep it safe; never holding back in fear, while everyone stays in line keeps the average, average. Break the rules to see how much you can learn from your own failings, and others who have failed. Research history of success. See where others may have accomplished things while others fell short.

This is all about standing out from everyone else. Let your brand shout in open air to get people's attention. The world of chance starts with you. Thinking outside boxes is a wonderful way of making headway in life. Sometimes it took a “crazy” person who wanted to fly so two brothers could make it work. Or a man and his mouse cartoon to give everlasting youth to life. When someone tells you no, or that this is how it is done, make sure you break away from their negative ways and try it.

Failing is a great way of learning. Learning leads to your one thousand attempt for a light bulb. The telephone was considered a ridiculous invention. Who knew!? Every once in a while a random thought will pop into a person's head. This will lead to great things if an initiative was taken. Space would always be a place we looked to if it were not for our quest to expand the horizons. Expand your possibilities with every dream you have. There are only great attempts, and amazing outcomes to even the best failings. Break the rules, not the laws and see life happen!

Motivation : Listen to you

Today's Tip • Motivation : Listen to you

People say many things that will work against your dream's desires. They will tell you that somethings are not worth the chance. You need a backup plan in case it fails. People make it as if they know more about your abilities than you do. Even friends, family, or teachers of our growth, will sometimes give us poor advice. Their advice is normally about having safety nets, because of their lacking belief in your strength forward. Get a good job they will tell you. Why get a good job, when you can have your own great life?

Should you protect yourself? Of course you should. Plan your life out, and stay strong within your Triangle of life. Utilizing your 3 Needs of Purpose, you'll be able to take those chances you must take. Your back up plan will be your motion forward. You hold the pieces to your backup plan being your main plan. Listen to advice, however, hear your own voice. If you believe in yourself let that guide you forward. When individuals tell you that you can't, or that it is “HARD”, tell them I know, and I am ready for the challenge, for if things are simple, what is their worth in completion?

Listen to your soul. Let you promote possibility in you. Life is short, let your life be well lived to the fullest of your dreams. Bring them to reality. Encourage yourself. Every morning tell yourself this wonderful statement “Today I say Yes to life”. When you find yourself saying “No”, more often than “Yes”, it is time to change your vocabulary. You must make actions to be actionable in your life. You know what you like better than anyone else does. Be true to your motive, and handle life honestly.

Motivation : The greats started out failures


Today's Tip • Motivation : The greats started out failures

Fear holds worlds at bay. Break through that fear. Become something more than a frozen statue unwilling to partake in this beautiful world of life. Taking chances changes life from one still moment to endless possibilities. Give a dream your time, your motion, your destination. Remember that every step never taken is a step behind the rest. Above all else, when your doubt holds you so deep in fear, your heart shakes and you begin to tear, you control your fate. You control everything from this point on. Be willing to fail!

In action anything can happen. It is that act where we learn through success, and failure. Education is more important than never learning. In school, if you sit there and listen to nothing then you'll most likely get a low grade and be held back. Your life is a test of attempts. Listen to what is around you. Listen to how you deal with a situation, how you fail, or succeed. Your ability to learn from these events will completely enhance your outcome with a perfect A+ in life... your life. Be willing to fail.

Our first President; George Washington, lost more battles than he won. He was willing to fail because the goal was more important than his pride, his fear, his worry of failure. His losses never outweighed his powerful motivation to overcome all odds. In fact, he was almost fired for losing one particular battle. The British thought he was horrible as a solider in the British army, and when he completed his campaign that inevitably lead to all of us calling America; These United States, they couldn't believe it was the same person. The King respected him. Be willing to fail.

Motivation : Everything starts with your action


Today's Tip • Motivation : Everything starts with your action

Having a dream is one thing. Making that dream happen is another. Your motivation to begin starts the revolution of what has been boiling up in your mind for years. You have a dream that you wish to accomplish and so you deserve to accomplish said dream! Start with a plan. A plan leads to direction. In this plan organize your SMART Goals, Budget, and Team. That's right, a Team. A team is compiled of friends, family, fans and associates. Those you work with, help and return the action.

SMART Goals are organized destinations which will help you always be aware of where you are, where you are going, and where you were at. Realize you are more than welcome to allow yourself sub-goals to each major goal. How your action helps you to succeed begins with you. Overwhelming yourself may demotivate your actions. When you feel this way, give power back to your mind. Attack smaller goals, or even one goal at a time. For one goal a day is 365 goals a year!

Budgets are organized through money spent, saved, and utilized. Money spent is all finances which handle your overhead. This includes “movies” money, or “bowling” money. That extra leisure you love to partake in. Saved money is organized into those wonderful 3 Needs of Purpose. Let them live within that world of purpose and you'll fill your foundation with opportunity. To round this all out take money and utilize it. Invest that money into income growth. This money works for you while you can work for yourself!

Motivation : Who do you want to be?


Today's Tip • Motivation : Who do you want to be?

Everything you do is about you. Who are you? Who do you wish to be? What you want to be is different than who you are. What you are might be a sales person, an actor, or janitor. Who you are is what defines your purpose. Everything you do is based on you. Be your virtue, be your peace, be your quest, be everything you want to be. While you are on this adventure know who you are and be truest to that purpose. Everything else is your suit, your outfit which covers you.

You want to be happy? These wants can be obtained, lost, and found again. They are moments of time which part with us, stay with us, or hide within us. Let us want for nothing and become something more than a desire. Who we are is pure, purposeful and justly of our own life. We can take who we are forever, we can change it, arrange it, and create a world around us. It's never filled, always moving. A child wants a toy, they get it, they love it and finally after some time they forget about it. We will always know who we are as we enlighten our goal to know why we are.

Every ounce of success was born from will. Are you a person that wants, or a person that does? You have dreams, you have goals, you have purpose. You are a person of value. Be more than what people tell you that you are. Be you, be the truest you that you can be. Know WHO you are so your choices are from your inner purpose. In time, all your actions will bring reaction. Listen to more than “reviews” of your life. Listen to life, it's soul, its joy, its heart. Be more than people telling you NO. Bring reality to your dreams because today you will say YES to life... your life.

Getting the most out of a brand : Supporting the support system

Today's Tip • Getting the most out of a brand : Supporting the support system (Going to other people's shows)

You may not always have time to support others in life; however, when you ask people to show up for your events and they either ignore you, or respond that they are too busy, you will realize it might be your fault. People, as yourself, want support for their efforts. They want to perform, or even express their purpose in front an audience of people. Give them this opportunity by supporting their lives, their choices. In other words, saying you will make it, then never showing up, is devaluing to you. Never showing up for their events is truly devaluing to your brand.

Of course, you might be a busy bee yourself in a way that hardly allows you to be at every event. This is true, so let your communication with people be less about “what you are doing” and simply connect with people you've not talked with in a while. You'd be surprised how much a person truly appreciates you reaching out to them. If you are busy, “all the time” try and set it up so you can get out there once in a while to be apart of something more than your life. This is a life worth living when you can experience it with other people.

When all else fails, this system is based on supporting one another. They call it a scene for a reason. When others stand back only wishing for support, it becomes harder to climb a wall when there is no one below you helping you up. Truth be told, that person you helped up, who now is on top of the wall pulling you up, is apart of your support system. Working together as a team is the greatest way to support the support system. Stand together and anything can be accomplished in this big world of possibilities.

Getting the most out of a brand : The Power of saying Hi once in a while


Today's Tip • Getting the most out of a brand : The Power of saying Hi once in a while (Contact your friends)

“Hello my friend, how are you today? Good I hope. Have a most peaceful and pleasant day!”

That felt easy, and harmless; taking only a moment of a person's time. Saying “hi” reminds people you care about them. People spend a lot of time forgetting things without realizing it. That's because people get busy. They have a life outside others and sometimes, without any knowledge of it, they forget that you are in their life. So remind them once in a while with a hello. You might simply be saying “HI, and hope all is well”, but that will remind them you care. Because you do. You care enough to ensure your life and their life continues to grow. People are important.

Knowing people, through networking, is a prime need for accomplishing success. Success in your life, and the life of living. We must connect with people. People remembering you is not their job. You must make the move. Beating your Ego out of your life shall help you find success in any field. Give in to peace, resolve, and understanding, and most of all give in to waiting for someone else to contact you. If you care about people, then know they can get busy. It's okay for you to contact them to remind them you know they are out there.

Life is about moving forward; less standing in a spot tapping your foot while waiting. Make things happen with action. You want something to come of your dream, do things to see it come alive. One step at a time. Excuses only create a rift between people. Make it a habit to contact your friends, family, and even associates within your field of interest. You may even want to contact people who are outside your field of interest, since you never know who someone is, or knows!

Hamlet


The Prince of Denmark is coming in August to The Rose Theater : 1320 Lincoln Ave Holbrook NY 11741

Over the next few months The Rose Theater is getting ready for Hamlet. I so happen to be performing as Hamlet in this production. The company is searching for donations to help give the best representation of such an amazing play by William Shakespeare. If only $10 a person, we'll be able to hit our goal fairly quickly as our deadline date is July 1st. Which would give the Theater enough time to build the sets and utilize the donations for said materials.

Help Bring Reality to our dreams!

Getting the most out of a brand : Using a venue vs Using a venue


Today's Tip - Getting the most out of a brand : Using a venue vs Using a venue

A venue is a place where people may perform. What are they performing; A job, entertainment, life, etc. We'll refer to performing as a sense of duty or operation within a particular field of life. If you are an entertainer, think of it as a venue for presenting your artistic venture. If you work as a lawyer, then the court room is your venue, etc, etc. These places are built for use, but not for being used. What is a comedian without a room? What is an actor without a stage? What is a lawyer without a courtroom? What is life without the world? Living strongly against Earth's grace will surely show a small decline in life's comfort. Destroy the world and there will be no world to destroy. Destroy a venue and expect the same.

When being invited into a venue, either through your own actions or the actions of the venue itself, remember to respect it. Act accordingly to its rules, needs and safety requests. Help support the venue in a respectful manner through letting others know it is exists. When you have an opportunity to utilize a venue, act as if it were your own, with the same respect you would want others to bring to it. When you are performing, you want your audience to see the professionalism coming from you and the venue. Market the event you are on, create interaction with that venue and most of all, come out and visit that venue even when you are not performing.

For those who have an understanding of the term “Using a venue” let's figure the meaning out together in a more realistic sense. You are a guest, it is a night where you get to perform. The only thing that matters is you are on stage. There is almost zero value in this action. Performing with a mentality that you are all that matters. You have a show on the 4th, so until that day, you rarely market the event, and after that day you never make mention of that venue again... until you are performing there again. Even more off-colored, is when was the last time you were at the venue when you weren't performing or “trying” to get a performance out of it?

Getting the most out of a brand : Fans vs Fa(n)ly


Today's Tip - Getting the most out of a brand : Fans vs Fa(n)ly

Growth of a fan comes from growth of a brand. We have friends and family; “Fa(n)ly” that support our quest. However, they support it only so many times, and for a certain amount of time. In the business of success Fa(n)ly always count for zero people involved. To people of note, this is less about your brand's value and more about the support of those who love you and would like whatever you did; to a point. Fa(n)ly will be there for you even if you simply were terrible at what you were doing. They are just happy to see you doing what you love. There will be a point where they cannot afford to take money and time away from their lives and give it to you.

Fans on the other hand want to be there. The more powerful your brand, the more aware people will become. Thus, they will find a way to work out their lives so they can see your life. One side of this amazing brand awareness spectrum is KISS. Yes, that rock band with make-up. They have new, and old fans. A lot of their new fans come from their old fans bringing up their children as KISS fans. Such as it is with sports, Yankees / Mets, etc. There is a bond between a brand and its fans. The smaller side of a brand awareness is when a comedian performs and no one shows up. Or a play is unknown. To bring people to these events you must A) make it known there is one, and B) Build your brand.

If Nicole Kidman was performing in a movie, play, stand-up comedy or even a band; BUT, no one told anyone; Most likely no one will show up. However, her brand is well known enough that her “die hard” fans would find out and show up. Let us say there were no die hard fans, just fans. They wouldn't know what was going on with Nicole Kidman unless she advertised it. Letting the public know is important. Thus, interviews everywhere; TV, Magazines, press in Newspapers, even blog posts and other online advertisements. The idea is brand awareness brings with it a draw. Thus, a brand's draw brings with it a nice size paycheck.

Getting the most out of a brand : Getting people to your show


Today's Tip • Getting the most out of a brand : Getting people to your show

People want to go out and do things. This is by far the truest statement a person can make. People enjoy letting off steam, relaxing out in the world or just letting it all go for a night out with friends. Why would a night out playing miniature gulf trump getting people out to your show? What makes miniature gulf, or a holiday, or even a movie get more pull than an event that either you put together, or have been placed on? There are a few rules to making a night of performance worth the while of every one involved; performer and your audience.

Value of brand brings an audience. When people enjoy a brand they will go out of their way to support that brand. Of course, they need to know about that brand to enjoy it. Keeping an event secret until it is promoted on the day of the event rarely helps. You must first create a buzz. This is done 3 months before a performance date. Every two weeks you increase that buzz from just a simple thought to a full on interest builder. Photos of practice leading to that date, interaction with individual fans who would love to see you perform. These help build awareness.

An audience killer is doing shows. That's right, if you have a show lined up the night before another show; both of which are only 10 miles from one another, you kill an audience draw. If you are performing Friday, Saturday and Sunday, make sure to spread the distance out; One day on Long Island, then New York City, then maybe New Jersey. This helps spread out interest without oversaturating your brand's draw. Another thing to be aware of; Telling people to come to a show is a deterrent. Present these shows to an audience and let them decided through their own accord.

Advertise the event in a passive manor. This means let it be known there is a show without begging people to come out to a show. Place some money into marketing. You will be surprised on its return. One misconception is performers feel it is the venue's responsibility. It is a performer's responsibility to bring awareness to their own brand. Also, relying on the small chance the other performers will market; so you can steal their fans (because you are awesome and better than they are), doesn't work. Mostly because they are thinking the same thing more often than not.

A class on class : Thank you


Today's Tip • A class on class : Thank you

Two of the most powerful words in the world; Thank you. It is a representation of appreciation for doing something, or being there helping. There are many ways of saying “Thank you”; from an act of reciprocation to simply saying it in a letter. The idea is to present opportunities to hear this, and most importantly for you to say it to others for their kindness. Being thankful is a bonding experience. A great way to show a relationship growth in people. When these words are felt; a connection is born ensuring people are there.

Importantly enough Thank You should be heard more often than not. When you realize you have been around a person, or person(s), and you've never heard them say Thank You; then something is off. In the opposite fashion, if you find yourself never in a position to say Thank You to a person, or person(s), then something is truly off and your connection with them should be reevaluated. Friends, family, associates should be people that say, hear, or are a grouping of that wonderfully beautiful phrase “Thank You”.

If there is one thing a person should learn it is to Thank themselves. Be thankful. Because if you are finding yourself without thanks of your own life it is time for changes. Make sure to Thank yourself daily. For without you, YOU couldn't exists! That's right, you are an important catch in your life. Every morning say; “Thank You for allowing me the opportunities to be the best me that I can be. And for that, I thank you. In return, TODAY I WILL SAY YES TO LIFE!”

And now, we here at BBR Productions Inc., would like to say our blog is growing because of you. Because you come here and enjoy our helpful posts. You keep us moving forward, for giving, and helping brings a world together. Everyone deserves a chance to bring reality to their dreams and you have surely allowed us to express our dreams; From the truth of our hearts, Thank You GREATLY!

A class on class : Selflessness


Today's Tip • A class on class : Selflessness

Doing for others is a gift that keeps on giving. Working with other people should be about them. Wait, about them, are you sure? Yes. Your survival depends on how others enjoy working with you. Through acts of selflessness you gain friendships that could potentially last forever. More importantly, that relationships leads to word of mouth spreading faster through acts of truthful kindness. There is a fine line between doing something with an intent of earning a valued return from it, and doing something for the act of being kindly helpful.

Sincerity starts with an open eye to learn more from being around people. Action truly speaks deeply of a person's character. Helping a person out with an intent to get nothing in return leads to endless possibilities. This brings us to an interesting example. You're hanging out with people and being stand-off-ish to a person because you simply have no valued interest in them. (For whatever reason), then that person says something about working with “Important” people. Turning to them at this point will surely only corrupt your reputation. Be nice to everyone, you never know...

This also goes for ourselves. Be selfless with ourselves. Take chances for the intention of giving your life possibilities. Taking away your chance at life is selfish. Where you could make an action work, and holding back in fear is giving the one person who means the world to you, disrespect. You owe your life chance taking opportunities. You get one life, so make it a life you dream of. There is plenty of reason to smile because you are happy doing what you so wish to be doing. Be the life you want! Take chances.

A class on class : Respect is respectable


Today's Tip • A class on class : Respect is respectable

Who you know and who knows you are prime needs in a path to success. A grand rule of thumb is to always be nice to people; You never know who someone is or knows. However, being nice to people with an expectation of gaining something from them is ill advised. Be nice for the sake of being nice. Kindness will always be rewarded in kindness. Those who are rude shall be rude until you have something to offer them. This means continue being nice. Take note that being kind doesn't mean doing things for those who are rude to you and others. It means be cordial.

Respect comes in many shapes. Ultimately respect a person's space, life, desires, rules, and other areas of their personal life. It is about keeping things professional until that door is finally open. When you are giving permission to walk through that door than you can move forward as friends. Until that point it is all business. Respect relationships, business and personal. Each one has a dedicated purpose in a path to success. Working with people, getting guidance or support, all these moments, and more, come from a networking circle.

Most importantly, respect is seen as a sign of value. The action of respecting others reflects deeply unto a person's reputation. Therefore respect the business you are interested in and it will respect you back. Working hard for something grander than a life you think you must live starts with respecting yourself, then the business you want to be in; followed by individuals in and around your life. Your life is a company, in turn, is a brand, that people will buy into. When they respect that brand they will always want to associate with that brand.

A class on class : Crossing the line


Today's Tip • A class on class : Crossing the line

There will be times when a customer, fan, or even a fellow employee ends up not figuring out certain social cues. “No” is always “No”. What is crossing the line? Being inappropriate to their personal space is one very certain clue a person has crossed the line. Let's suppose someone asks for a phone number and the response is NO. Then, they show up to a public place, because that person checked around knowing they would be there... Way over the line. There is no space for error, a person crossing the line is a very big problem. Protect yourself.

Let others know that it happened. Also, introduce people to that person who has crossed the line. You could even say things when introducing your friend to this individual, such as; “Oh, this is that person I was telling you about. This is my good friend.” The more people who know about the person being inappropriate, and the more people whom the inappropriate person knows knows, now knows them now, they will surely back off. Please, after the first true warning to these people of being inappropriate happens; go to the police and fill out a report. Protect yourself.

Now, seeing others cross the line with you is one thing. Crossing the line yourself is another. Remember, networking starts with you. Being kind, and aware of social cues can help further your career in any field. Understand your limits. Your awkwardness can cause a rift between new individuals. Fairly stated, if you are trying to cause said rift, than by all means act inappropriate. However, you never know who someone is or knows. On the other hand, how you act to everyone can change the opinion of people involved. As the old saying goes “You can't please all the people...”

A class on class : Working is working


Today's Tip • A class on class : Working is working

There are two sides to every situation; The person doing, and the person having it done to them. When you are at work there is a fine line between being professional and being personal. Of course you want to be a little personal. Getting to know individuals is all part of the networking experience. How personal should you get? Laughing, being friendly, and showing your kindness is a good level of measurement. Flirting, talking about your troubles, or even what is going on at home are all things left inside. You are working, and work is for work, home is for home.

However, you have moments when a person is being professional and another person or persons are being inappropriate. It happens to women a lot more than to men, but it still happens. When a lady is working, say on a movie set, trying to get her foot in the business; she may hand out her business card to people and be friendly. If the guy makes a move on her, or only takes the card to flirt later on, that is unprofessional. There is always a time and a place. This is apart of TAC: The Art of Conversation – When to say it “Never at a business”.

Keep a steady hand when working. Know there will be moments where others are unprofessional. Keep your professionalism up to par. Allow these people to recognize they have stepped over the line without being rude back to them. One thing you could do is say thanks, and be nice, then excuse yourself. Stay away from that person. They'll get the hint. If they call or email you inappropriate messages, respond without acknowledging their inappropriate comments. Simply find things they mentioned that were normal and respond to that.

I want to be successful : Why are they and I am not!?


Today's Tip • I want to be successful : Why are they and I am not!?

Negativity becomes negativity. Many times there are moments when people look at others, and their success, only to complain that those people/companies shouldn't be successful. That, or possibly, the onlooker of complaints feels they should be the successful ones. Famous words of the common person “Why are they on stage, we should be up there?”, “How did they get on the radio?”, “Why are they in this movie?”, “I am more talented than them!”

Instead of worrying why you are in a different place than these “undeserving” individuals; why not look into how they got their opportunities? That's right, there were certain things they accomplished in a particular order that granted them possibility! A great achiever recognizes greatness achieved by others so to achieve such things themselves. Knowledge truly is power. Let your hand search, and understand, multiple paths of truth through the achieved.

This comes down to working with others, or even befriending others. There is no harm in finding a person willing to show you the ropes. People in college do it all the time; they become interns, working for free to gain a knowledge strong enough to help them feel out their desired field. There are many who need hands on work to figure it out. Standing at the sidelines complaining will only get you so far. Jump into the ditch and start getting dirty!

I want to be successful : Think responsibly


Today's Tip • I want to be successful : Think responsibly

Want a family; Child, House, Car, Marriage? These are all beautiful and wonderful things to have in one's life. Are you ready for it though? Success comes at a price, and sometimes at the price of those we may love most over ourselves. A family life-style is a job in itself. It takes all ones time, and continues to do so until a retired date. Think responsibly, success is a selfish thing when needing to make sacrifices.

If you are in a situation where you can hardly cover your own personal overhead, how can you take on a family? A child needs a certain amount of care taking, food, time, and love. Wanting a child is great, awaiting the right time can take forever. Workout a plan. S.M.AR.T. Goals help organize possibilities. When individuals create situations that hinder them, it is their own fault. Think wisely, understand what you want, and can you handle it.

By allowing yourself to live within the Triangle of Life, you'll find your needs of success take everyday to accomplish. Your needs of purpose help build a security to protect your growth as you increase your chances for fulfilling your dream. While organized your needs of longevity you propel your life into a direction to jump off a foundation created through treating your life like a business and investing into assets!

Today's Tip • I want to be successful : I have a job


Today's Tip • I want to be successful : I have a job

Working harder for a company than your own company has never made sense to those seeking success. There are people out there that have dreams of doing something more than working a job for someone else. They'll work as a store clerk packing out shelves only to find themselves bored and without purpose. What makes this person go to work everyday, instead of going to work for themselves everyday? Fear... Money... Security?

Happiness comes from doing what you love. Living a life where a person feels purposeful, accomplished. Even a regular 9 to 5 job for someone else is more amazing when, at the end of the day, you feel like you have accomplished something grander than your task. How does one break free of the job fear? Organize a budget to take control of your life. That is step one. Step two, take a chance. Make things happen by making things happen.

Every thing starts out small. Take one step to accomplish said goals each day. With a steady job working for another company you give them your 8 hours and go home. You get paid weekly, and can only advance as far as that company allows. Own your life and you can advance as far as your imagination will take you. Work when you want to work. In the beginning, you work longer, harder hours. Once you get things rolling, your company works for you!

I want to be successful : Where's the audience


Today's Tip • I want to be successful : Where's the audience

Playing to an audience must be an amazing feeling. Hearing them scream cheers of joy, chants of praise. Having people there just to be apart of a grand ole show is every performers dream. It's even the dream for companies. Companies want an audience of people involved in their productions. So where is this audience? How does a person get people to notice them?

In general it starts with brand awareness. Simple rule; Get a brand then market that brand. Having a brand for people to latch onto starts with a connection within a company's purpose. Where does a company want to be in any given market? How do they want to be remember, or perceived? These questions help build a brand. Then market that brand through every avenue available.

Where is the audience? Waiting to know a brand is out there. They will come when they are interested. Build a nice relationship with them through conversation of brand vs opinion. Keeping away from telling people what you want them to see and what they should like vs letting them in on the conversation will always help you gain their interest. Think GEICO and how they communicate with their ever growing audience.

I want to be successful : I am talented


Today's Tip • I want to be successful : I am talented

Practicing is one of “3 Needs of Success”. A person must be skilled in their area of expertise. However, Practicing is more about learning the business of everything; working hard to master Networking and Marketing. How much practice is too much practice? Also, a person needs to be a master of their skill to ever make it to a successful position. I've heard this before “I am talented!” The harsh truth is, so are about a million other people.

Why try and be good at something if it does not matter for one's success? Working on a skill is important so that when a person makes it to their respectable place of success they can complete said tasks. There is an old saying in the business of life; Talent will only get you so far. This is by-far the truest statement in life. One must be known (marketing) and very much liked (networking) in life for their future to have any level of success.

Being humble, letting people know about you, and staying confident that you have the ability to take chances. Listen to people who may be greater or lesser in your skill. Every person has something to offer advice towards. Even if it makes you think about something “not” to do. Lose that mentality of “I am talented; so I deserve more, or should be noticed” and work hard for that success. It'll pay off more in the end.
