Ever been in a place where you’re compromised with your career - where you’re either doing a job or biz you don’t enjoy because doing what you love is seemingly too great of a risk, or maybe you’re still not “quite” sure what you want to do within the framework of your business?
It's soul-sucking, isn’t it?
There's a real reason why change is HARD. (no you're not lazy)
"Change requires action.
It really is that simple.
You either want to do it, or you don’t.
It either matters to you, or it doesn’t.

He was late + apologized but said that he was rattled emotionally because a close friend of the family just had a heart attack.
He said he had to take some extra time to compose himself but that he loves what he does and was ready to give us, what he hoped to be, his best performance ever.
And he did not disappoint! He was nothing but charming backstage and he completely rocked it on stage!
