What Do Rob Ford, Sarah Palin, and YOU Have in common?

What Do Rob Ford, Sarah Palin, and YOU Have in common?

What Is Your Actor Brand?

Remember when Tina Fey got to be Sarah Pailn?

A big mistake many actors make is that since they’re actors, they think they can play ANYTHING, and they may be right, but it doesn’t matter-

You’ll only get booked for what OTHER PEOPLE think you can play.

Just like you would use soft scrub instead of toothpaste to clean your bathtub (even though it would work!), the people who are going to hire you will mostly hire you to do something they’ve seen you play already.

Case in point: ROB FORD.

Now that he is branded as “The Crack-Smoking Mayor” who is clumsy, fat, and drunk all the time, guess who the internet clamored to play him:

CHRIS FARLEY.

Who died in 1997- 16 years ago.

But being a fat, clumsy, drunk slob was Chris Farley’s Brand:


Rob Ford the Movie – YouTube
Someone made a fake trailer for “Rob Ford The Movie” starring Chris Farley because of their brands.

Yes, the video is kinda hilarious, and of course, it fits. But I’m pretty sure that there are other actors, ALIVE ACTORS who could also play Rob Ford. Bobby Moynihan did a good job on SNL, but of course, that was to be expected too.

And that’s the point.

You had better control your brand- and HAVE ONE TO BEGIN WITH- or you might not get the work that is exactly for you when it appears.

Being an Entreperformer, you should realize that entrepreneur have a brand for their product or service, and so your service should have one too.

So, maybe you should find a politician who you look like, and see what kind of scandal they can get caught up in!
Or, you could JOIN US, and create your own brand and develop your own stuff!

Perform Random Acts Of Shakespeare!

Perform Random Acts Of Shakespeare!Perform Random Acts Of Shakespeare?
A while ago, my friend Leah Burnette was talking about something, and she said “Perform Random Acts Of Shakespeare”. I told her she should make T-Shirts and stuff.

She Didn’t.

So I did! See them HERE.

But here’s the thing- if someone wanted to run with this, there’s an entire business plan that could go with it.

I say that you have a core group of people who perform a random act of Shakespeare flash-mob-style a few days a week, let’ say at 4 different locations, and film them all.

Everyone wears the T-Shirts promoting the website.

Splice them together during the weekend, and put them on YouTube.

Make sure that SCHOOLS know you’re doing this, and you could even get them to come be a part of a few of the Random Acts. They could watch them in class and discuss them, or maybe for homework- whatever.

After a while, you’d have entire plays up.

Then you could ask people to support you by buying the paraphernalia and donating to the site, or the various completed plays could be bought on DVD, or pay per view, or whatever.

Of course, it would also be a great way to promote your local shakespeare theatre group/

Anyway, the key is promotion, performance, and paraphernalia!!

Building An Asset In The Digital World

Building An Asset In The Digital World

I always recommend Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki because it first taught me about the idea of “assets”- Something That Pays You.

I had never even thought of that as a concept.

Sure, I liked the idea of “making money” and he idea of “getting paid”, but the idea that I could actually buy something that PAID ME was completely out of my awareness.

It was one of those ideas that “I didn’t know I didn’t know” about.

When I explain the idea to other people, I ask them to imagine buying a Pinball machine, and putting it in a barbershop where the kids who come in to the shop can play. You put it in the corner, and go home.

Once a week, or once a month, you go and get the money out of the machine. You haven’t “worked” for the money, you haven’t “sold” anything- you just collect the money.

IT PAYS YOU.

Another example is when you buy a house or an apartment, and rent it out to someone. The money that is paid by the renter is not something you worked for, and not something you sold- the renters just pay, and you collect the money.
The apartment PAYS YOU.

Online (The digital world) one of the assets you build is an EMAIL LIST.

You build a list of people who are interested in whatever your topic is, and as you send them emails, they buy stuff. You can even set up emails to go out automatically, therefore letting the emails sell automatically.

The Email list PAYS YOU.

It Is An Asset In The Digital World

I build a list with AWEBER, and I build different lists, creating several assets:

My list of Parents who buy my kids books.
My list of Artists who want to make money without a day job.
My List of Healthy People who want to look sexy.
My list of people who want to earn money from home.

If you’d like to do the same, I recommend you start an AWEBER trial:

Reblogged From The Majestic Creation Of My Unconscious Mind (message from Dave’s new house)

Badass, isn’t it?

This was my attempt at creating a kind of MTV cribs style video of my new headquarters (house) here in Escazu, Costa Rica.

If you want your own TV show, here’s what you have to do.



Be offended by this.

If you’re an artist, or an actor, and trying to have someone recognize your talent and hard work..

Forget about it.

Just go smoke crack, and you too can have your own TV show!

The Crack Smoking Mayor of Toronto, Mayor Ford is getting his own TV show, and you aren’t.

 

So keep working on that Shakespeare monologue, and maybe the cameras will come watch you when Mayor Ford smokes Crack before seeing you perform in the alley behind where he SMOKES CRACK.

The Treadmill Is Stealing Your Sexiness

I know, I know, a Shocking title.

But you won’t read this unless I write it this way.

Too often people tell me that want to lose weight, so they get on the treadmill for two hours a day and other long-time non-effective strategies.

Muscle is sexy, and Marathoners don’t have any. They look skinny, but flabby and UNsexy:

Whose Body would YOU rather have?

 

In my book “Half Assed Health“, I talk about doing short sprints instead of long runs, but people want to fight with me over it all the time. Well, maybe they won’t fight with the research:

 

“One group performed four to six 30-second “sprints” while the other group did cardio for 30 to 60 minutes. The results were nothing short of amazing. Despite exercising for a fraction of the time, those in the sprint category burned more than twice as much body fat.”

Here’s where the article lives- On HUFFINGTON POST where a fan of my book sent it to me.

Now, you should get and read Half Assed Health:

Great Strength Exercise For Older People

Sometimes Older people ask for good strength exercises, here’s one:

For the Shoulders: 
I AM AMAZED AT HOW WELL THIS WORKS; YOU’LL SEE!!
(read all of it)

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room
on each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from
your sides. Hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute,
and then relax.

Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

Then try 50-lb potato bags, and then eventually, try to get to where you
can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for
more than a full minute. (I’m at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

🙂

Beautiful Day in New York City.. well, except for THAT (LOL!)


This was on a beautiful day in New York City, and Laura and I decided to go out for a walk. I thought you might enjoy seeing New York from this perspective, we were at the top of a hill on Cemtral Park West, about 104th Street.

It’s rare that you see this view of New York, and I was kinda just up there feeling grateful for my life that allows me to do this any day, not just Saturday.

… And then Laura spotted that thing.

So, I figured you might laugh at it with me!

What is the inspiration for Entreperformers?

Like everything in life, there have been many things that have come together  to create the Entreperformers that I envision right now.

1- My life- Currently, I haven’t had a day job in 10 years, buut I want more. I want to be ABUNDANT in my life, in a way that feels more secure than I think it is. However, knowign that I’ve felt it for 10 years, I also know that people also want to learn how to be in that situation. I also know hat I should be the source for what I want to have. Therefore, if I want to feel like a big deal of a guy, I should make other people feel like a big deal. If I want to be more motivated and inspired to do the things I know I should do, that I should BE THE SOURCE to help other people.

Empower Network- is a network of bloggers that offers training for people who want to earn an income blogging, and have an affiliate program for their own network. It’s brilliant. And if I want to make it work for me, I have to BE THE SOURCE and help other people do it.

If I want to be more entertaining, and get my work out there more often, then I need to BE THE SOURCE and create the people around me.

Why Is This Actor In A Brooklyn Deli at 2am?

An actor walks into a deli at 2amRight now, I’m at a deli in Brooklyn at 2am after being at a high energy Tony Robbins seminar all day.Because I was booked to do a scene for a trailer for an indie film…
As an Indian deli owner.
The actual deli owner is Egyptian, and thought that I was too… “Ah-lan” he says (not in any way the correct spelling), and since I’ve encountered this before, I tell him I’m not Egyptian.
He is slightly disappointed.
But I’ve been practicing my Indian accent by watching some clips on YouTube, and I’m ready for my scene.And am super tired.


And then after this shoot, which will probably go into the morning, I will go back to the next day of the seminar.
And the next morning, be up early for a kids show… In Brooklyn.
Someone asked me “Why the hell are you doing all of that?”
The answer is: Because I want to, and more importantly, I want to BE the person who does that.Instead of being upset about the schedule, I’m grateful that I’m wanted so much!
Is there a better answer?- See more at: http://www.youcantmissthis.com/2013/11/an-actor-walks-into-deli-at-2am.html#sthash.GeXE6djD.dpuf
