There is nothing that makes the road to being a better performer easier. Nothing you can buy. No lecture you can attend. No workshop. No tactics, gimmicks or a slicker promo package. There is really only one way to better yourself as a performer, develop your onstage persona and learn how to connect with an audience. And that is...just work. I wish I could hold a convention where aspiring performers would come so I could have the one and only lecture where I would reveal the secret to being the best you can be. The lecture would have one powerpoint slide that would say JUST WORK, and then I would send everybody home. Everybody wants to know if there is a secret formula to get around all the work involved in developing an act, being a better performer, etc. There is none. Just work.
