There’s no denying that we are facing some challenging times, but in the more than eight years I’ve been out performing and speaking fulltime, I’ve learned that you still have choices to make. Are you going to get up and make the calls? Are you going to meet new people? Are you going to ask for and give referrals?
My decision is that I will do so, and I will do so energetically. The harder it gets out there — economy, taxes, whatever — the better I will feel when I succeed in spite of the obstacles.

I appeared on the CBS affiliate here in Atlanta recently to promote an upcoming show. Though the show date has passed, the clip lives on!

Note — the “weather cards” trick was improvised on the spot. Imagine the customized, message-oriented magic I could produce for you with a little prep-time!

“A Big To Do”
If you’re planning a meeting, conference, private party or other special event, then I know someone you need to talk to today.
From small private events — to large private events — to enormously complex corporate spectaculars — Erica Flippo Prewett is the kind of planner I really like to work with. She thinks ahead, plans for contingencies, and she shifts gears from “large-scale vision” to “important minute details” as needed.
Her ability to maintain the overarching vision has made her a valuable asset to some truly massive events all over the world. Some of the industry’s largest production companies hire her as a production manager because of her uncanny ability to get it done and get it done right.
You don’t have to hire the largest production company in the industry to get the benefit of Erica’ expertise, though. Check out her own firm, A Big To Do Event, based in Atlanta… and you’ll be amazed at the value she delivers. It’s almost like… magic!
