It is 2018 Now What?

You have been warming up and getting ready to get on the stage to perform. In your mind you have imagined over and over about how you are going to perform on stage. How you will entertain the audience and how you will make them laugh and intrigue them.

6 Reasons Why Your New Year Resolutions Will Fail

No need for an intro, we’ve all been there before, so let’s get started:

1- You’ve Set Unrealistic Goals

Many start with the best of intentions but find more often than not their resolutions pushed to the wayside and quickly forgotten like the sweater your grandmother gave you for Christmas last year that was 2 sizes too small and is stuffed in the back of your overflowing closet.

I’m going to show you how to create resolutions that will not fall by the wayside and will stick, like that cherry-red piece of gum on the bottom of your shoe. Continue reading
