The Fed cutting interest rates isn't to stimulate the economy, it's to introduce more liquidity into the economy and further increase our national debt.

Just remember, "The Fed" is, never has been, and never will be part of the US Government. They are not our friends.

BINGO.

I am leaving for a couple of hours. Here are a bunch of free links to free business books in pdf format that will help, if you use them. I know I do. By the way, despite what most will say and beleive, my business has actually been a little better than last year. Not bragging, just letting you know it is possible, but you have to work constantly as the Dean points out.

I am a marketing madman (similiar to the Psychic Madman) during these hard times. Remember during the Great Depression, there was no TV Cable, Video Games, IMAX, or the internet to compete with.

Don't focus on the lost gig, and find a new opportunity.

Candin -

Sometimes you lose to people who charge less, and sometimes you lose to people who charge more.

I've booked some shows recently, where I was quoting more than the competition. The customer told me they picked me over someone who charged less.

It's not about the price. It's about building a relationship, and showing that you can meet their needs.

And, like Josh said, move onto the next opportunity when one passes you by.

Thanks Donald. I used every tactic I know including my uniqueness, TV footage you name it. Oh well, win some loose some, I just hope it was not because of our economy. This has happened in the past but lately, I see plenty of $100 or less gigs becoming norm.

Some people you might want as a customer, but they are totally unqualified (issues such as the budget, etc.)

Don't focus on the negative (the loss), or the problem. Focus on the finding solutions.

Keep yourself busy chasing those who can afford you, and who want to be convinced you are worth your fee. Find out their needs, and show how you can meet them.

I guarantee you there are performers doing just fine right now.

- Donald

P.S. Great book to read right now... "Maximum Achievement" by Brian Tracy.
