How much publicity is too much? Can you have too much? Can you have too much celebrity in the press? Just curious about your thoughts.

When you think of a hot chick ---- you think of Paris Hilton
When you think of a female pop-singer ---- you think of Britney
When you think of a famous actor ----you think of Tom Cruise

When you think of a magician you think of ........ ???? If your name can't be filled in the blank then keep working on your PR... Smile Now it is to take the PR and turn it into revenue...

Get my point guys?

What if your continual exposure in the press or on TV strains relationships with others who are not getting the same attention?

You do not need to apologize for being the best, you should be proud of being the lead dog. My wife doesn't understand what drives me, but she knows it is not other women, and she is absolutely positive that if I was not performing I would be impossible to live with.

Are you talking about colleagues or your personal life...

Jealousy happens. You can't control all the publicity you get. The best you can do with these other people is to be the gracious, kind person you are.

I know lots of jugglers that are technically better than me, and can't figure out how I get all the work, because they do not understand the differance between talent, and skill. Every time I see them they all ask me the same question "how do you get so much work". They will always be technically better than me, and they will always work their day job absolutely clueless.

Collegues/peers. Just curious if others have had this challenge. I call it the Blaine effect...

BDC - WHO CARES?

Be what you can be and achieve all you can. If others cant cope, tough s&*t. They aren't true friends anyhow.

Now if it is your personal life... that's a WHOLE DIFFERENT SUBJECT, and I doubt anyone here is qualified to help you on that one.

Best of luck buddy!

I'm just curious how others deal with this, if at all. I hate it that my friends and collegues can't celebrate my success with me. it makes me very sad, becuase I am a sharing dude.

The best always stand out in the crowd. If others can't deal with your success then they were never your friends.

You can't escape what others will say about you behind your back. Don't fret over it. Again, be you gracious self and those who accept you will accept you. Other who won't, won't.

Hi BDC -

On another thread, you mentioned that you often have a lot of press coverage. And yet, your phone doesn't seem to be ringing with show inquiries.

Is that why you are asking these questions about too much press coverage / credits that are too "lofty"?

I'm not trying to hassle you. I just want to know how we can support you best.

The trick is to take the PR and turn it into revenue... Smile

This is what I have done and has paid off big.... PVT me and I will give you a few thoughts what has worked for me...

It has been said that the only bad publicity is no publicity. A huge part of showbusiness is keeping your name before the public. Same with advertising, it is all about product name identification. So if you get in the newspaper, on radio, and on TV every day more power to you.

Photius, yes it is important to get pr and have ads... But one must turn those avenues into bookings...
One can increase there status to their client by creating that they are indemand or popular....

Some of the busiest guys I know have NEVER been in the press once.

As for friends not celebrating your success, my advice is to get better friends.

My level of success has NOTHING TO DO WITH HOW I FEEL ABOUT THEIRS! I meant to scream that. If I am successfull then they are happy. If they are successfull I am happy and one has nothing to do with the other.
