The Tag Team Method

I have a bit of a quirky confession for you... When I was a kid, even though I'm a girl, I used to watch Wrestlemania, and the tag team matches were always some of my favorites. Each wrestler would do his (or her) part, taking on the opponent, leveraging their...

Are You All In?

The most frequent question I've been asked in my many years of working with speakers and artists is this: How do I find more bookings? My first question back to them is always this: Where are you looking now? Seriously, where are you looking? If you're not looking,...

You Down With O.T.T.?

When I was in high school, I wanted nothing more than to be an animator for Walt Disney Studios. And so I'd buy (and actually read) all those huge hardcover books all about the history and technique behind the unique quality of Disney animation. I remember this one...

Have you ever wondered what to make of all this talk about miracles and manifestation? I'm as big a fan of magical stories as the next person, but there's a dash of healthy skepticism in there, too. I was watching the film Hook with my kiddo recently, and it got to...

Go With The Flow

A lot of people think I mean one thing when I tell them that I'm a star creator & supporter. They often assume that I turn people into stars and then support them in their business dealings. Well, that's partly true. I'm not talking about mega-watt Hollywood...

Finding Fluency

Learning any new craft is a lot like learning a foreign language. We often want to be awesome at it straight out of the gate, but that rarely -- if ever -- happens right away. What really happens is that we end up looking and sounding like a frustrated toddler,...

Pushing Past Sucking

One of the hardest things to get past in my performing days was the big chasm between what I envisioned being able to do, and what I could actually do. I got all inspired and lit up like I was on fire when I saw Cirque du Soleil, but then the first time I got onto a...
