It all starts with your education. Do you have what it takes to be a business person?

You don't need cash to start a show, just hook up with "with-it". He will not only show you the ropes but give you "A REAL EDUCATION" as well.Wink

Bring your own bed roll, blanket and bankroll. Hurry, school is now open and space is limited.

Guest lecturer, "Paul B" is scheduled for next week. Government grants are waiting, send 5 yards for an application to me, not him.

A LOT of research and planning. But even then, as Pinetar pointed out, without a good solid education, some practical experience and surrounding yourself with knowledgeable people, even the best laid plans can fall flat on their face.

Finaly after all these years I got a booking agent,where were you when the money was hard and we had equipment, now we are using what we learned the last 50 years you want to lay the act down!!! And are offering low points at that!Wink

Education means nothing without common sence. I know a guy with 9th grade education, and he has one of the most successful concession companies on the road. Also know a guy with a masters in mathmatics, and was bankrupt in 2 years. Experience is the key to being successful on the road.Street smarts are a plus too.
