The evil rat race of business, to acquire more
As entertainers, we are always trying to find new places to advertise and generate business, but once we start to look, we get overwhelmed at all the opportunities. It is similar to George Carlin’s stuff explanation. You look at an area, break it down by industry or companies, start looking at individual groups, and realize you only need to contact one person to book the job.
That’s the rat race of every business, finding the person in charge of making the decision you need to make. It means researching, calling, and doing all the things that are not fun about entertainers, just to keep you in the race to succeed. After all, it’s a rat race to find the person in charge before they book another act, and then you’re stuck on the sidelines wondering where I’m going to find my next job.
It’s the whole meaning of business, to find the person in charge, and once we find that person, we get that happy email from them informing us that they are moving on with their career. Hence, the rat race starts again.
