I just wanted to say a big "thanks" to those that attended my Entertainment Business Lecture last Sunday and my Intensive Entertainment Business Workshop on Wednesday in Las Vegas. We had attendees from 11 countries and both events covered a lot of entertainment business territory. Your attendance was much appreciated, and by the follow-up I've already received many are already implementing ideas and content from the events. We had some absolute beginners as well as some of the biggest names in the business there so it seems to have run the entire spectrum.

One of the things that has been getting great response was the release of the latest entertainment industry business resource in my Entertainer's Success Series that was released in conjunction with these events, which is my new - "The Entertainers Guide To Working With Agents And Agencies" e-book. While it was released at the Vegas events, the official release to the community is today.

I know this is an entertainment business resource that many have been asking about for some time, so here are the details...

First, this is written as a business resource. It addresses all of the misinformation that seems to be so common on this topic or facts that are often confused with opinion. I have yet to see anything like this available for live entertainers pertaining to our area of the industry. It is not just for magicians, but actually all types of live performers and entertainers, as well as entertainment business owners/operators (amusements, bounce houses & inflatable companies, costume characters, caricature artists, Santa's, storytellers, dress-up parties, etc.)

Finally, The Real Information On You Need To Know About Agents & Agencies...

An Industry Guide To Understanding & Working With Agents & Agencies For Entertainers, MCs, Speakers & More

Have you ever really wanted to learn and understand the mindset, mentalities and realities of how agents and agencies work, think, operate and execute? What they want, what they need, what they expect, and why?

In this professional industry resource you will learn the answers to these questions and more. You will go behind the scenes of agency operations to reveal the truths and real-world insight into working with and better understanding agents & agencies.

Although "weird " finally actually works fit the sentence I actually meant word.
