That means that my video edits are perfect, my website doesn’t have any broken links, my printed materials have been read and re-read, and my e-mails to clients have been carefully crafted to meet their desired goal. The problem is, if you’re OCD like I am about things being perfect, they’ll NEVER be. You’ll never be happy with the way your website looks. You’ll never be happy with the wording on your voicemails.

FOCUS ON THE TRUE GOAL: A PARTY TO REMEMBERPSWCDT-dancing Regardless of the profession, many individuals emphasize the attributes of their tools. Photographers might showcase their cameras, landscapers could brag about their lawnmowers and, of course mobile disc jockeys have a tendency to boast about their equipment.

Meet the Next Generation Blizzard Lighting “G” Series Moving Spot

August 27, 2014 by Mobile Beat
Things are looking mighty bright with the Blizzard G70™ Waukesha, WI. – Blizzard Lighting is excited to announce the arrival and immediate availability of their new G70™ moving spot head fixtures.

The G60™ fixtures consumed approximately 160-watts of power vs. the new G70™ moving head fixtures which consume a total of only 119-watts. The new G70™ fix... [read more]
