The Making of the Gig Entertainer Survival Kit: Real Stories, Real Triumphs

In the world of gig entertainment, every performer’s journey is littered with both landmines and goldmines. It’s a path I’ve walked, and I’ve seen many of you tread it too. The Gig Entertainer Survival Kit isn’t just a toolkit; it’s a testament to our collective stories – the gritty, the triumphant, and everything in between.

From Trials to Triumphs

A friend, let’s call him AL, who nearly threw in the towel after being told he’d never be rebooked. But we turned that around. He not only got rebooked but became a top choice at the venue. Then there’s Dan, who believed his art was just a side hustle until he tripled her gig fees and made it her full-time passion.

These aren’t fairy tales. They’re the hard-earned victories of people who live and breathe their craft. People like you and me.

A power nudge

We’ve all had moments when a little nudge, a piece of advice, or a new perspective could have made all the difference. That’s what this kit is – it’s that nudge, that advice, that new perspective.

It’s born out of the real highs and lows we face: booking gigs, handling tough crowds, pricing our art, and maintaining our creative spark in a world that often tries to snuff it out.

So much stuff

I’m keeping the lid on all the specifics (got to have some surprises, right?), but expect a mix of personal insights, strategies I’ve used and seen work, plus wisdom from our community. It’s practical, straightforward, and, let’s be honest, a bit unconventional at times – just like our gigs.

No Sugarcoating Here

This isn’t about selling dreams. It’s about providing tools based on real experiences. We’re in an industry where smoke and mirrors are part of the show, but not part of our growth.
