It's no surprise that the hardest working (thus busiest) performers are the ones you rarely hear about. That's why today I decided to call my long-time friend Tom Krzystof, one of the most successful corporate entertainers in the mid-west to talk about getting booked. The biggest question I had was how the edited he manages to stay so busy.
Years ago, before anyone had run a sub four minute mile, there were those who said it couldn't be done, that four minutes was unreachable. After Roger Bannister broke the barrier in 1954, a flood of runners achieved this once untouchable result. What happened?
Roger had given them permission to run a sub four minute mile.
There's no way Tom could have given me an exact formula for success in the 20 minutes we had to talk. But I hope by listening to Tom speak about his corporate work and his success as a full-time magician, it gives you permission to achieve your impossible dreams, whether it's quitting your day-job, or increasing your shows per month by 25%.
Tom is a true worker. He's taken the energy and personality that brought him success as an executive and turned it into a vehicle for living his dream to entertain full-time. It's always great talking with him, I hope you enjoy listening in.
