If i gave you a boost last year, please make it public.
Job: Clown/Event Producer/Entrepreneur
Gave me great, clear easily implementable suggestions for how to improve my brand presence in the world. In our first chat about biz Scot asked me straightforward questions about my why and what was the purpose of what I am creating. I gained so much clarity from our conversation! It felt as if I met myself and my new business endeavors anew. Developing this clearer understanding of how to express the intention of my brand created new pathways for me to move forward. I am here for Playful Self Discovery! Also, the laser focus that was given to my questions and concerns gave me the sense that Scot really cared about helping me. Getting advice and direction from such an incredible creative mind with the confidence that comes from successful career practices is such gift!!!
Job: Variety Artist / Creative Consultant
Scot Nery, you are as generous as you are funny and both are abundant. I'm binge reading your blog posts which are a treasure trove of information, insights, and inspiration. I hope to someday work with you one on one in the near future. Bobby would be so proud of you!
Job: Variety Artist
It's been a singular pleasure to see Scot Nery working on stage as well as in writing and coaching. During 2020 I benefited from his articles and online challenges. I find Scot's body of experience especially useful as many of us have reached a marketing / booking plateau or are significantly retooling our art/business approach for Pandemic Times; For example, he's experienced in many practical marketing concepts, which I find quite helpful to either scenario. Thanks, Scot. I look forward to further opportunities to benefit from your services.
Just this year, Scot helped Fire Leopard create our weekly FB live show, advised me on how to focus my business endevors, and hired me to make music for a couple of projects. We've worked together for many years, and Scot is a wicked smart entertainer and good friend. Love, Steiny
Job: Character Performer
Scot has offered me a lot of incite into how I can a. Value my sElf more and b. Discuss that value with potential clients. He guidance has helped refine how I communicate my comedy character offerings. I see many things more clearly thanks to Scots light!
Job: Co-producer of Boobietrap
Scot thinks about entertainment probably almost every second of the day. Learning how to look at an act on stage from a new perspective gives me valuable insight into the difference between performance and entertainment. Scot is genius at building shows and acts and has a vision that is rare to come by.
Job: Audience Engagement Specialist
Aside from inspiring me to be a better entertainer, Scot has helped tremendously by sharing his marketing knowledge. I learn from listening to him help others, and on a personal level he directly helped with improving the look of my virtual show.
Job: CEO of Yelling at Audience
All the Essays Scot has written are a blueprint for success. Not a weird Tony Robins success but real success. They're FREE! More practical than a theater class with an academic. Kudos! His 5 day challenge is a must to reevaluate and rethink what you think your brand might be or not be. Well done also on Arlo photos that give me hope for a future that seems futile. It's happening- the future is here and its going to be awesome.
Scot Nery not only provided me with a platform to perform on, but also stairs, so that I may get on the platform.
Job: Actor / Stand-Up Comic
Through this year, you put me on stage at one of the shows that has better suited my sensibilities as a performer than almost any I've ever done. Boobie Trap was such a fun community, and you went out of your way to convey how much you appreciated both my talents on stage and my contribution to the atmosphere of the show every week. I've said it before and will say it again: Boobie Trap was a close-up study in how to pack a show and keep it both well-produced and clear-eyed in its vision, but also libertine and off-the-wall. And also PACKED with audiences. Reminded me why I love stage performing. And you on stage are SUCH a unique flavor, and you don't back down from the strange moments, which is in my opinion where you shine most. That's it. Looking forward to seeing everyone again at the end of all this.
I can't even begin to tell you the value Scot brings to the world. From his unique Boobie Trap experience, to blog articles that make me challenge my own thinking, Scot has always been a curator of weird, unconventional, and smart concepts. I hope you continue to share your ideas with us!
Job: Escape Room Owner
Watching Scot pivot into helping others during this difficult time has been extremely inspiring. He has amazing drive to not only share his talent for entertaining with the world, but also to use it to boost others. I personally have newfound motivation from reading his blogs posts and watching his videos. He spent some time speaking with me a few months back, and gave me some wonderful ideas on how to pivot with the pandemic having forced my escape rooms to be closed. The guy's a legend :D Also, I've said pivot three times now in this message, but it feels right and reminds me of Ross trying to get the couch up the stairs. Thanks

Job: Animatronic Designer

Job: Mime and Artist
Propped me up, tickled my funny bone and encouraged me to forge on in the wild waves on entertainment.
In the before times, I think boobie trap was one of very few spaces in Los Angeles where I felt valued as a variety performer. I respect that hes continued to try and help performers during the lockdown, and have them think about the future and how to monetize their unique skills. Its one thing to be a big thinker, but to also try and get others to think just as big I think thats a pretty special quality and fairly rare in the entertainment industry.
Job: Theater rental
Encouraged me to create a budget for the new downsizing of my live performance space while integrating studio recording and broadcasting site

Job: Clowning around
You have worked hard introducing the world to many unusual acts that maybe would never be seen by the general public without your weekly variety show, Boobie Trap. Including me in these shows is very encouraging and reassuring and gives me a reason to try knew things. You have introduced me to a great performance arts scene in Los Angels that you had a big part in creating. Thank you Scot.
Job: Web Designer
Advice and assistance - I was working on a web design job and frustrated by a code problem. Off-handedly, I mentioned my frustration in a vague way on Facebook. Scot wrote to me immediately and offered several suggestions--the very first one worked, and I was done. I barely knew the guy. We had done some performing on the same show, months before, but he spoke in the tone of a person one knew regularly. Since then, I have seen him do this effortlessly with other people: listen to them, talk to them, help them... it is an admirable quality, and one we should all try to emulate. Thank you, Scot--and let me know if I can ever return this favor.
Job: Voice Over
You gave me an honest assessment of where I was and listened to my story as I took to freelancing full time. Not a lot of people have asked about it since I quit my day job, and it meant a lot that you took the time (and went over our scheduled time!) to listen to me and give some honest, encouraging feedback. Thanks!
Job: Creating stuff
When touring stopped, you helped me restructure my business to find new outlets for my creations. You've been an incredibly supportive and generous ally and I am very lucky to have you on my side.

You helped me by writing your blog. I was reading it religiously and found it inspiring and challenging. I have a tendency to get lost in thought and ever expanding ideas. You helped earth me, to keep my feet firmly on the ground. You are great at honing in on strengths and focus any performers attention. Thank you.

Job: Job Seeker
You lifted me up! You inspired a lot of people with your expertise and encouragement.
Scot has always been entertaining, but honestly it is the drive and passion for performance that makes him unique. They are many performers that can show up and put on a wonderful show, but becoming a producer of a hit show is the next level up. He gives us a great place to play-a wonderful world to use our talents in. His ability to perform is amazing but the idea that he allows us all to show up and show out is incredible.
Job: Crafter of Creative Spaces
Scot took the time to chat with me for about 30 minutes last month after I reached out in a bit of a panic. In that 30 minutes he gave me three different ways of re-framing my perspective for a big ticket negotiation I was handling for myself, FOR THE FIRST TIME. When I got to the call, when that pivotal moment to name my rate arrived, I heard Scot's voice in my head. "Be more expensive than the pshhhkt tax." Essentially, I was reminded (with a giggle) that big companies are potentially spending more on soda than on my gifts, unless I determine my value to be more than a corkage fee. His blogs are concise and have rippling impact and are always about the value of arts and entertainment. Thanks Scot.
Scot not only inspired me with his creativity, openness, and style, but he so educates the public as well as other performers about entertainment and and the industry as a whole. I am so grateful to have worked with him in this last year, and can't wait to do it again soon.
You and the people you have introduced me to has helped boost my confidence and made me better at what I do in both of my jobs, and to some extent my day job as well. Your advice has always been invaluable.
Your infectious humor and unbrpidled wit have kept me out of the dark ditches. You have inspired me to keep creating

Job: Technology and entertainer
Provide motivation and encouragement
By being an exemplary role model with all the nuances and idiosyncrasies of live entertainment. Just by observation of your performances and just you being you, I learned an ineffable amount and cannot thank you enough.
Scot has positively impacted multiple areas of my creative pursuits. I've benefited from his eye for visual aesthetics (whether it's critiquing a website or improving a show set design). I've benefited from his trained brain for joke writing and email marketing. I've also benefited from his heart. Scot loves helping people, and genuinely cares about making my performances more meaningful and valuable to the world.
Job: Livestream Entertainer/Artist
The impact was immediate. Scot helped me not only to book my first virtual corporate event... but as a direct result of his coaching, I was able to tailor my product to give the most value to my client. My quote was 10x higher than I had charged the client for past years, and was met with enthusiasm and gratitude. His philosophy opened my eyes, and his relentless strategizing has me on an exhilirating path. Thank you, Scot Nery.
Gave me a venue to keep my creative impulses alive and gave me incouragement and comeraderie that I will always remember! Except if I somehow get a brain injury... Then I might be not...
Job: Intrepid Dance Project (Artistic Dir.)
Scot was able to clearly articulate what works in our numbers and gave me a blueprint to have a successful performance formula particularly for Boobie Trap. His blogs and our conversations over the years have helped me with the business side as well ex: mailing lists and marketing.
Job: Balloon Artist
Scot transformed the way I think about my job, what I offer, and what clients actually need from me. I went from thinking about how to get more clients to thinking how to serve my clients better. I went from feeling overwhelmed by marketing myself to excited to do it more. He made the work of sharing myself with the world an easy and joyful experience. More specifically, he showed me how to craft my message, he invented a brand new product for me to sell, designed the website, put me in touch with people to help me produce videos content, got my videos posted on the right websites, gave me daily pep talks, helped me write a press release, and pushed me to do hard work that paid off!
Job: circus stuff
I enjoyed reading your blogs. Arlo is also very entertaining!
Scot Nerys challenge series was the motivational pick-me-up I needed this year. His questions provoked me to dig deep into how I can best move forth with my career in these strange times and feel validated in my decisions thus far. Knowing Scot from his shows work in LA, I knew how passionate he was in curating a vibrant community of entertainers and entrepreneurs, but I was extremely impressed with his diligence to make sure all of us in his sessions received the individual guidance we needed when we shared our feedback. Very grateful for Scot this series!
