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 grasp what they want to do. Large community events need several months to plan their marketing, which it’s easier to cancel than scramble for last-minute vendors. All this while bills still keep appearing in the mailbox.
I have 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 is 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.
