So You Want to Celebify Yourself and Become an ArtisticPreneur?!

You know, you don’t have to Celebify yourself to become an ArtisticPreneur. You have the option to be a quiet and unassuming ArtisticPreneur keeping your your creative juices flowing without having to be under the spotlight.

But if being blinded by the light is for you, then go for it! But make sure there are footlights on your stage so you can gauge the audience as you perform. This is very important. I learned this when I was a “Semi-Pro” magician between the ages of 8 to 18. Just like a conjurer does while doing her or his feats of legerdemain, you need to make certain to observe your spectators. It makes the overall performance turn out better because as an ArtisticPreneur you get a sense of what the crowd wants and then can give them that thing.

The same concept carried over into me later having to publicly speak, usually as a Digital Marketing educator. I would (and still do) watch the group and feed off of their energy. Or if they have no energy, attempt to pump some into the room.

Celebifying Yourself Comes with Responsibilities

Once you make the committment to celebifying yourself it’s hard to turn back. When you inevitably become a public figure, this comes with responsibility. You should never take your status of being in the limelight for granted. It is something you must constantly work on and as much as is possible, be in control of.

I recently wrote a rather tongue in cheek article recently on the topic of “How to Celebify Yourself in Just a Few Easy Steps.” Excerpts from the article were included in the “ArtisticPreneur Email Newsletter.” A question I got over and over again was in reference to this paragraph of the blog entry:

“I’ve had the good fortune to have observed the Celebify Process up close and personal on three separate occasions. These individuals started out as total unknowns. I then participated in the process of them most definitely becoming the “C” word.”

Although the article was clearly done as a goof (though the thing about the three celebs it true), people really wanted to know how the three folks in the paragraph were able to become famous.

The Journey to Becoming a Celebified ArtisticPreneur

Needless to say everyone’s path to becoming well known is different and required different steps. But the one thing that is a constant with the three celebrities I observed, is that you have to WANT it and want it badly. You also must have razor sharp FOCUS. This means only keeping around the people who can do things for you and your career, and abandoning the others.

Focus also includes mapping out the steps of your career but to also be flexible if there are new developments not in the plan. It used to be a cold hard fact that you were at the mercy of the industry. This is still true to a large extent. But something that is growing rapidly is for the artist or business owners to Executive Produce your own show business properties.

For example DocuMysteries are very popular at the moment and could be a good genre to explore when creating your own endeavor.

Win an Award Such as a Platinum PIA

Something else you might consider is getting yourself into the running for winning an award such as a Platinum PIA. Of course we’re biased since we produce the PIAs, the full title of which is “The Platinum PIAs Community Awards Show for ArtisticPreneurs who are Making a Difference in their Local Neighborhoods and Around the World.”

It goes without saying that the award you win doesn’t have to be a PIA. But if you interested in at least getting into the running, use the Entertainment Entrepreneurship Contact Form and tell us about how you are an artist/business owner who is making a difference. Also it wouldn’t hurt to seek out being a Guest Blogger or Interviewee of the Entertainment Entrepreneurship site.

You can ask for more information on being a Guest Blogger or Interviewee when you submit yourself (or someone you know) for a Platinum PIA. Don’t worry that nominating yourself for an award is too ego driven. The fact is that people who become public figures never have a problem suggesting themselves to be in the running for anything and everything. That is, if you want to Celebify yourself!

Entertainment Entrepreneurship: It’s Okay to Believe in Unicorns

Release the unicorns, they can help you more than you may think.
Release the unicorns, they can help you more than you may think.

My daughter loves unicorns as many kids do. But as we get older we stop believing in things that we label as “Make Believe.” Why? Because we’re trying to be realists. It’s interesting, but all the successful artists who I had the honor of knowing before they became famous had one thing in common. They never doubted that they would be successful. Sure, sometimes they would stop believing, but throughout was a steadfast mental commitment to achieving the creative career levels they felt entitled to. Yet at the same time it was almost as though they might as well have been believing in unicorns, because those around them in the early days were not convinced they’d become what they eventually became. I also noticed that these artisticpreneurs increasingly made a point of building relationship with those who believed in unicorns too. Eventually they had created a cocoon around them of believers – believers in them. Of course those around them were connected to other people who could help with the journey. And as such, they made their ascent. Blocking out the naysayers and focusing on the dream. But for them it wasn’t a pipe dream, it was a guiding light. The unicorns carried them where they wanted to go.
