Hello ladies and gents, well mainly Tim Olsen since he is my only follower currently.
For This blog I would like to lay out all of my goals from now till september.
I tried making a list of all of my goals that I would love to accomplish this year but there are far too many. A lot of them probably won’t even happen this year but who knows.
As stated before my biggest task is to lose 55 pounds if not more by September. I want to do this for obvious reasons as in my health, but I want to look good and gain the confidence as well.
My next big goal is getting a car… I had a car but for reasons I will not disclose here that car was taken from me. So for the last year I have been driving my mothers car.
As Well I need to get a new job I actually just lost my job TODAY soo it’s pretty important that I jump on the band wagon and get a new one ASAP.
I want to take my magic act to a whole new level and build an all new act from the ground up. I really would like the act to “get the party started” thus I have chosen a theme of doing tricks that could tie into the theme of a house party. I perform mainly in bars and clubs rather than concert venues now-a-days so I would love to have a few different shows to present for different clients. Currently I just change up the wording depending on where I am performing. I have a bartending routine planned out I just need to finish putting it all together and I think it would be the perfect opener to get the crowd excited.
Since I promote myself similar to the way bands and rappers promote themselves I feel I should have merch to sell at shows I have some cool ideas for T-shirts. As Well I would LOVE to have an awesome DVD that I could sell or even give away.
I want to create a KICK-ASS music video style demo. My current demo videos in my opinion are a tad boring. I just feel they don’t represent me and my personality at all the way I want them to. I’m a fun guy and that definitely needs to be represented in my demo video.
I am going into the Army National Guard in September but I would love to either go on a tour before then or, do another TV spot before then just so I can stay fresh in the circut for the 6 months that I’m gone. The last thing I want is for people to forget all about me and then I have to start all over again with everything I have worked for. SO I have decided to create business cards and press kits to send out to the Late Night Shows. I would absolutely LOVE to be a guest on Jimmy Fallon’s show or Conan, or George Lopez, Jimmy Kimmel, basically I would love to be on any of their shows I Love them all. oh and if you didn’t know I’m a huge fan of Late Night talk shows.
I have a ton of goals and these are just a few of them, but the last thing I would like to share on this blog today is that another goal I have for 2011 in general is to build a strong fan base of people that love magic and that love me! As I have said I would love to meet each and everyone of you guys out there that have a desire to meet me so the more people I can get involved in my “movement” if I can be as bold as to even call what I am trying to accomplish a movement, the more I will be able to get out there and be able to interact and shake hands and talk and performer for each and everyone of you without there having to be a computer screen, or an ocean, or even a state between us. I would love to come to you someday and say “Hello I’m John Shackelford” face to face. So Please check out my youtube channel and my facebook and myspace add me subscribe to me, I would greatly appreciate it!
