What Is Your Role At Events?

February 28, 2020 by Michael Cordeiro
Imagine your in charge of an event with over 800 people. The event is outdoors and you have multiple things happening at once. You need 200 people to play their part on cue and the other 600 to cheer them on enthusiastically at the right moment. Suddenly one of your 200 forgets what they're doing and throws everything off. What do you do? Can you reset? I was in this exact situation last weekend while working on a new Disney movie in Boston. I've been doing back ground work for almost ten years now. This particular scene was a holiday parade. We were shooting over night on a few shutdown streets in the middle of Boston. We started rehearsing the sc... [read more]

Is Your Inbox Your Real Boss?

You Work For Yourself But Is Your Inbox Your Real Boss?

February 28, 2020 by Terry Lewis
Is Your Inbox Your Real Boss? Before bookings became a certainty in my business, I was often distracted from achieving goals by my inbox, and I didn't even know it! I'd wake, check emails and instantly react to messages that had nothing to do with motivating engaged couples to book me, the next thing I knew, the morning was gone and sometimes part of the afternoon too! I was being bossed around by other peoples messages that were not helping me to fill the booking gaps in my calendar - can you relate to that? If you do, do you think you need to fire yourself and re-hire a more business-focused version of ... [read more]

Taking In Vegas At MBLV24

February 20, 2020 by Michael Cordeiro
MBLV24 is less than 30 days away. Time to double check your plane, hotel and car reservations. Make sure you have your show passes ordered and air out your suitcase. Besides having a ton of networking and learning opportunities jammed into four and a half days (Sunday night pool party), the after hours scene is off the hook this year. Not only does your badge get you into the big show on Tuesday night, it gets you access to some of the hottest clubs and shows on the strip (Including Steve Aoki at Hakkasan on Thursday night). If you're not a big night club person or you are bringing family along, here are my reccommendations for some fun alter... [read more]

Spins that rock – cool slots you’ll play for their music!

February 12, 2020 by Mobile Beat
What do slot machines and rock stars have to do with each other, one might ask? If you take a look at the number of branded music slots released in the past years, it won’t take you long to figure out that this genre of games works pretty well! People love to play online slots inspired by a band or singer that they admire, and developers have by now learnt to combine music and gambling in a highly entertaining manner. Perhaps the reason why music and gambling go so well together is that the level of entertainment to be had from both can be really huge. Developers are well aware of this, which is why you’ll find plenty of other party slots on the market. Combining cool visual elements with top quality music, these slots normally have their background music synchronized to reflect the action taking place... [read more]

Stoopid DJ – A Monkey Could Do Your Job

February 8, 2020 by Michael Cordeiro
It's always nice to get a referal friends or previous clients. I always feel good to see my company name tossed into the ring for an upcoming event. Like most towns we have a few local Facebook group pages where people can ask for recommendations for services. I'm always amazed at how quickly these posts go from a courteous "We'd love to help with your event" to a used car salesman pitch of, "Pick me pick me -we're better and cheaper than everybody else". Recently someone was looking to hire a DJ for a graduation party. People started to drop names and emphatically proclaim the greatness of their referral. I was unpleasantly surprised to learn just how many DJ's in my area are "The best around" or have the biggest library and best sound system( granted some of the referals are friends of mine and very good...

8 Minutes – The Difference Between Success and Failure

January 29, 2020 by Michael Cordeiro
It's the end of January and I'm wondering how many of you have fallen off the resolution wagon already? Have many of you have abandoned the gym, eating better, practicing more or sticking to those changes you promised yourself that "This year, I'm going to do it"? I'm not here to preach. I'm in the trenches with you. I've already let a few things slide or get moved to the back burner. I've been pretty good at sticking to the top changes I want to make for myself this year. I'm eating better, working out more and sticking to my reading goals. It's been challenging already. Life is constantly throwing curve balls or trying to pull out the rug from under... [read more]
