No Do-Overs – This is LIVE!

THE SHOW MUST GO ON???

YO! There are no Do-Overs! Β This is LIVE! : )

Let's face it, when you are doing a LIVE video, there is always a chance that EVERYTHING can fall apart. It's not about if it will happen, but when. #mariahcarey

A truly #preparedperformer does foundational work so that they are ready to recover quickly when things go wrong. This Live Video Checklist is a great way to prepare before you “go live!” http://www.ThePreparedPerformer.com/live-video-checklist

I have experienced MAJOR disasters both onstage and on FbLive in front of thousands.

Here's just a few examples…

– I fell off a stage and landed in an elderly man's lap during the opening funeral scene in the musical Evita.

– My top ripped open showing my bare chest to the entire production team of Broadway's South Pacific and a room of 36 dancers during an audition.

– I stood on stage during final scene of the National Tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang with NO CAR! (The whole point of the show is the flying car.)

– My phone fell out of my selfie stick and landed shooting straight up my skirt while teaching my Camera Confidence Course.

I could go on and on and on…

Seriously horrible things have happened to me on stage. Some were out of my control, some were just things that “happened.”

How do you find the motivation to keep going when EVERYTHING has fallen apart?

I'm sure you saw or heard about the crazieness that happened NYE when Mariah Carey had a crazy track and monitor screw up on stage.

Rather than ripping Mariah to shreds, I've put together 3 huge lessons you can apply to your business and your FbLives!

  6. I read that she said they played the wrong track.

  7. There’s been plenty of times I’ve been in a show where we started a show over again. Sometimes it’s a smaller deal to start over …

  19. I laughed and told the audience that it was my alarm.

  20. Today during my FB live using BeLive.TV guiding my live audience through an intense EFT/Tapping session a HUGE FAT fly entered somehow my home office and started flying in circles around me in front of the camera! Priceless! I used the tapping process to integrate it by letting everyone live repeat after me: “I choose to embrace all distraction.” “I choose to stay focused no matter what.” It was hilarious! LOL!
