Post Getting Started

This question just came to me out of the blue- its probably the simplest question but the most complicated to explain -

How do you get started? I mean what do you do - pick upa phone book and just call everyone? Stand outside juggling and hope someone stops and watchs? Spend millions of dollars to brain wash the entire world into hiring you on a weekly basis?

go to motionfest.

Find a booking agent in your area and call them. Set up an apointment to go in and talk with them. At the meeting ask them what kind of things they are looking for from their entertainers. Then do what it takes.

Read all the back logs of the P. Net forums.

go to motionfest.

get a juggling job at a theme park.

do lots of street shows.

learn how to tie baloons and do kids birthday parties.

go to motionfest.

don't look at me as an example because I've made it nowhere fast.

Good luck.

Why go to motionfest?

go to motionfest. Motionfest- I'll get on that like a whale!

Find a booking agent in your area and call them. Set up an apointment to go in and talk with them. At the meeting ask them what kind of things they are looking for from their entertainers. Then do what it takes. Worked for one woman a few years ago - She was going nowhere fast- and now I am employed for Fly By Night Entertainment- Unique Entertaiment Solutions World Wide- They are teh best. TooTallGuys.com!!!

Read all the back logs of the P. Net forums- After I figure out what backlogs means I will be sure to - um -- LOOK AWAY FROM THE CLOWNS!

go to motionfest- I visited the website.

get a juggling job at a theme park- Im almost positive I am getting one at Six Flags this summer.

do lots of street shows- done 4 or 5 - if fairs count Ive done like 20

learn how to tie baloons and do kids birthday parties. - got the balloons down - can you do the kissing bears?

go to motionfest- still ahve not gone to motionfest

don't look at me as an example because I've made it nowhere fast- Be positive - Im sure you've gone somewhere between now and yesterday. I mean you at least made your way to the bathroom and back.

Almost forgot- how much is motionfest going to run me.
