Shooting A Stage Show

The question often comes up “I want to shoot footage of my show. What camera do I get?” The short answer is “get a pro to shoot it for you.” Someone who’s good with a camera will get a few great, useful minutes from the show. Someone who’s an expert at shooting live performers will Shooting A Stage Show

Start With The Smallest Group

When I was a virgin christian, people would try to hook me up all the time with other virgin christians. It was specific – especially in the atheist circles where I hung out. My buddies that were trying to get laid were bummed about it because I wasn’t going to do the good stuff with Start With The Smallest Group

Build The Email List

Email lists are my favorite way to gather my audience. Scot Nery’s Boobietrap sold out most of the tickets last year just through the initial announcements. When it was running weekly, 43% of the audience was repeat visitors due to the email list. With Boobietrap, we sent emails immediately after the show with a complete Build The Email List

The potential of a group

My small town school teachers said over and over again I had lots of potential, but I needed to do my work. This made me feel like a total nothing.  After traveling the world and meeting the best creators in the world, I see that I wasn’t limiting my potential. The teachers were.  When I The potential of a group

Buzzing Crowd

I listen for a buzz. We want to create an environment and a setup before an event so that people are buzzing. When it’s over, we want that same buzz or more. The good buzz sounds like people talking to each other excitedly. They will be talking a little bit loud to be heard over Buzzing Crowd

This is a holiday for everyone in the world. Let’s be grateful. People have told me that you can’t be grateful and fearful at the same time. Let’s apply Gratitude on Thanksgiving

Animals Need Calories We need to eat enough, and be able to process the food that we eat to have usable energy in our bodies. Energy Is Calories + Game

Let’s Get Vulnerable

People use us for our merits, but they love us for our imperfections. When we want ourselves or our organizations to be loved, instead of being great, we need to be good. Instead of perfect achievement and flawlessness, we need to show that we’re flawed. To lead a group, or energize a crowd, we definitely Let’s Get Vulnerable

Free isn’t cheap enough

Doing Scot Nery’s Boobietrap, we wanted to fill every seat. So, when we weren’t sold out, we gave away lots of tickets for free. Our seats still weren’t filled. If enough people knew about us and knew they could get free tickets, why would we not have a packed house? Because money is not the Free isn’t cheap enough

Why I’m a Class Clown

I loved learning, but my teachers in school were often more into enforcement than enrollment. They’d rather make rules than entice students into the lessons. My fellow students fell asleep, quit school, or just tried to get okay grades. I was a class clown because I wanted kids to wake up. I would comment on Why I’m a Class Clown
