OK, I admit it. The Covid-19 has me scratching my head, wondering how I can survive as a balloon entertainer. The virtual market is tight, as companies still don’t have a grasp on what they want to do. Large community events need several months to plan their marketing, which it’s easier to cancel then scramble for last-minute vendors. All this while bills still keep appearing in the mailbox.
I always admired those YouTubers who can carve a niche and make a living. They work hard to produce a product, market it, and show up every day to make the next show bigger, better, and meaningful to their core followers. As a balloon entertainer, this is what I try to do at every event.
Here is what I’m trying to do this year.
- Expand my creativity. I love fishing and entertaining. Is there a way to combine the two, I’m not sure, but maybe I can expand my Youtube following.
- Being passionate can get you only so far in life. I have to do the little things daily that, and in the long run, allow me to reach my goal.
- I’m going to help more people with the skills I have.
- Try not to focus on money, which is hard to do when your not making any.
Will you see another wacky video of me fishing?
N Yes, as it a small distraction from life.
Here’s hoping a small distraction turns into something longer term and financially rewarding to offset the entertainment career that’s on hold.
