Dime a Dozen: How to Go from Usual to Unique
The average person thinks that most service providers are interchangeable. This drives down prices and makes it harder to get business.

Using examples from his own career and great entertainers of the past and present, he shows how (and how NOT) to make your service unique and communicate that fact to your target market. You will leave with ideas and skills you can use right away to improve both your show AND your business.
Cause and Effect Dissociation in Management
Today's challenges require flexibility, resourcefulness and imagination - and sometimes, pure, dumb luck!
