DAY 3 RECAP of The TheaterMakers Challenge: Vivek Tiwary, Ryan Scott Oliver and more!

We interrupted our challenge for a couple of hours today to watch a new President take the oath.

And well, let’s just say everyone was in a preeeeeetty good mood when we kicked off Day #3.

And, just like President Biden, we were ready to get to work.

We got great tips on how to do just that including . . .

  • The Broadway Producer of Jagged Little Pill and NY Times Best-Selling Author Vivek Tiwary talked about his weekly “Vision Strategy” session and how it can help you create a filter in your work . . . helping you do more of what you want to do and do LESS of what you don’t want to do.
  • Composer/Lyricist Ryan Scott Oliver gave us all his “Writer’s Block Vaccine,” with seven super easy steps to make sure you NEVER HAVE WRITER’S BLOCK.  And you are going to love the first step!   (When I followed his process, The Karate Kid was involved.)
  • And me?  I talked about my struggles with focusing on the BIG stuff.  That’s why I try try try to use a strategy called “The Big Three,” which I explained (and vowed to everyone to follow it myself!)

And congratulations to Nicole Truillo, the winner of a free headshot session with photographer Jeremy Daniel!

If you missed DAY 3, 2 or DAY 1 of The Challenge, you can still sign up here and watch the replays in the Facebook group, which are available right now.

And we still have TWO days left!

Tomorrow come get inspired by Susan Blackwell and Laura Camien of The Spark File and learn how to get that mind and body in shape with Core Fitness Founder, Rodrick Covington.
