40 Is The New 20

April 25, 2017 by MitchTaylor
40 is the new 20 Mitch Taylor Gitomer Licensed Trainer Taylored SalesWe're going to talk about how 40 is the new 20. I want you to really think about this. People talk about this all of the time.

People look at their 40s as maybe a time to relax and just you know they've learned a lot and they've grown as individuals and now they can just settle in and what they're doi... [read more]

April 24, 2017 by Terry Lewis
In short, I help wedding DJ’s fill their calendars with wedding bookings at 2x, 3x and even 10x their current earnings. And I can help if you:

Eagles Only, No Pigeons – Get Disrupted!

April 13, 2017 by Michael Cordeiro
We may not always realize it, but personal and professional development go hand in hand. We can only do our best when we are at our best. Many of us tend to put more emphasis on our professional skills than developing our life skills. We practice our microphone techniques, improve transitions, build better playlists and hone our mixing skills. Our spiritual, mental and physical well being takes work as well. How much time do you actually spend developing the best YOU? At MBLV21 this year attendees were blessed with many great seminars and speakers. One of the best was by our host - Todd Mitchem at the end of the conference. Todd's seminar foc... [read more]

April 13, 2017 by StephenJClayton
Welcome back to Part 3 of “Should I Go Full Time?” series. If you haven’t read Part 1 or 2, make sure you’re caught up before proceeding to Part 3!

How do I know if this is the right time?” and in Part 2 we went through 4 questions that should help you determine whether you have the necessary equipment and consistent gigs to help you make the decision to go full time. Now, we will talk about how to keep your full time status, and tips to prevent you from having to retreat back to part time to supplement your income.

Should I Go Full Time? Pt. 2

April 5, 2017 by StephenJClayton
Welcome back "Should I Go Full Time?" The series. Last week we talked about the "feeling" you get when you start to desire going full time. In this post we'll ask 5 questions that you will help you determine if it's "time" to go full time DJ.

My basketball coach, John Masi at UC Riverside used to say, “you can’t be Mental Midgets”.  You have to be tough enough in your minds to overcome the obstacles in front of you. If you already have dou... [read more]
