A mentor just said THIS to me.
This one is a quickie, but I had to pass it on, because the words kind of punched me in the face.
In a good way.
I got off the phone with a mentor of mine just a little bit ago. This is someone I call every so often for advice about the business of Broadway, on business in general (he has given me some great stock tips), and even on fatherhood.
So I called to him to ask those questions that we’re all asking right now . . . when will Broadway come back after the pandemic? What will the business look like? Will my prediction be right?
In other words . . . “What should I do???”
His words? Let me quote him:
“Ken, I have two words for you . . . ready?”
“YES, please,” I pleaded.
Then we hung up.
I didn’t do anything for about ten minutes.
Then I started.
I hope you’ll join me. Because this is how we make a better Broadway and a better life for others and for ourselves.
