Avoid Being Scammed, Entertainers Are Easy Targets!

Scams, not Spams; Don’t pay to play, get paid to play. Paying to play is another way you are taken advantaged of.

Feeling like you may have been taken advantage of? Perhaps you have. I want you to take a step back from what you think is normal and look at it in a different light.

(Flicks on the spotlight of revelation) OK so now that that is out of the way and we can see it for what it is. Let me ask you this. You’re paying to play someplace? Really. So Your playing, working, right? And the owner of the place is getting live music, or a comic, or whatever it may be for free. Plus the extra people that come in because you are there and maybe a door charge and you get??? Screwed! that s is what you are getting you know. You perform you advertisement you are bringing there and get nothing from it other than a “Hey thanks when can you come back” Which is said with a bit of a crooked smile while the guy twirls his sinister mustachios around. You getting the picture now? You should be!

Now not getting paid the first time you go someplace sure that makes sense your looking to get some play time and some exposure and prove to the owner that you can in fact help him out just as he is helping you. That should not continue week after week. If your bringing in added business or the owner is charging at the door then speak up. Sure it’s fun to be seen but this is what you want to do with your life isn’t it? I thought so.

Don’t be afraid to negotiate folks, its not difficult and it is a business world you are in so act the part. Your stage persona and your real life one need to be distinctive.
