5 Takeaways from the GYSOTG Seminar

We had another great Get Your Show Off The Ground seminar this past weekend with a dozen more talented participants with a terrific set of projects.  I have no doubt you’ll be seeing several of ’em on stages very soon.

A bunch of ideas hit the whiteboard during the seminar, but here are five that I thought might add some gas to your project’s tank.

  • Vanity projects are only vanity projects when they don’t work.
  • A primary part of a Producer’s job is to set deadlines.
  • Never work on just one project.  Always have another one in case the first stalls, frustrates you, or dies.
  • Like it or not, sales is a part of everything we do.
  • You’re never too young to be a Producer.  You’re never too old to be a Producer.  If you’ve got a project, you’re a Producer.

Thanks again to all the participants for sharing their passion and their projects with the group.
