I recently found out that Ill be heading back on the road! Taking a break from hip-hop and spending the next six weeks with a living legend! The one and only Patti Labelle.
It’ll be a summer festival tour hitting all the major cities in the U.S up until mid August.
The main point of this announcement was to explain how I ended up getting the job. When I was out on the Club Paradise Tour, I become very close people who would eventually get me this job. You never know how powerful some people can be and your best bet is to be polite and helpful to everyone. We had some crazy stressful days on that tour but we still had to wear a happy face and make everyone’s day the best it could be.
People always say its all about networking and in this case.. thats exactly true. I played my cards right and made a great impression to the right people. We kept in touch after the tour ended, met up a few times when they came to town and told them to keep me in mind. This opportunity doesn’t happen often in my case but Im glad to see its finally coming together.
Once the opportunity was presented to me, of course I wanted to jump on it but first had to figure out what I was going to do about my job here at home. Not only get a replacement but make sure that my boss was ok with it and I had a job to come home to when the tour ended. I finally got everything squared away and confirmed the tour.
My advice to anyone trying to further their career in anything they do, is to keep an open mind and play your cards right. Sometimes you have to give a lot to get a little back but it’ll be worth it. Also remember that people are watching you work at all times. It might now seem like it but they are. They’ll see you work your ass off or slack off throughout the day. Also, remember that if you want something then ya gotta work for it. Not everything is handed to you on a silver platter.
Here’s the dates in case anyone’s in the mood for some soulful R&B!
