Back in 2009, after a brush with reality-TV fame, I spent too many nights swooning in smoky Savannah clubs and getting underpaid.  Music has always been my first love, and after spending most of my teen years and young adulthood dancing and touring with a professional dance company, I knew I had a voice that needed to be heard. So, I packed a U-Haul and headed for the southern music epicenter...Atlanta.

We recently had the honor to perform for World Acceptance Corporation, one of the largest small loan consumer finance companies in the U.S. and Mexico, at Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis. Wow! What a special event! The 1100+ employees were treated to a tour of the stadium as well as plenty of food stations and open bars – along with a three-hour+ performance by Party on the Moon.

One of the blessings of my business is sometimes I witness greatness. Two summers ago we performed a wedding on a mountain top in Aspen, Colorado. The act on the bill with us was none other than Burt Bacharach! The image of our keyboard player, Earl Fleming, and I standing in awe next to the stage during Burt’s sound check will be a memory I will always remember.

In Napoleon Hill’s famous book “Think and Grow Rich,” he talks about The Master Mind group. He describes the group as two or more people working together for the same goal in a sprit of harmony. This had a profound impact on me when I put Party on the Moon together. I knew to be successful I had to have a great team. So, after my partner Ed Duncan and I decided to launch the band, we brought in Dalton Marketing Group.

At Party on the Moon, one of our key goals is to get our guests on the dance floor and keep them dancing during our entire performance.   I am pleased to say we almost always achieve that goal.  How?  Practice, practice, practice.

In Malcolm Gladwell’s book, The Tipping Point, he studies the lives of some of the most successful people in the world, including Bill Gates, Paul McCartney, Tiger Woods and many more from the arts, business and sports industries. One of the concepts in the book is the 10,000-hour rule: it takes 10,000 hours to become skilled and proficient.

Most of us will be focused on giving to those special people we care about this holiday season. We have all heard, “It is better to give than receive.” But, sometimes, receiving can be a powerful thing. I encourage you this holiday season to not only focus on giving, but also to reflect and give thanks for all the opportunities and gifts you’ve received this year.

Have you heard of Taido?  It’s a martial arts practice based on a positive philosophy that promotes teamwork, giving your best effort, the fact there is always something to learn and a “never give up” spirit. This is why in Taido, a black belt means “Shogun or beginner”.  When you earn your black belt, you are not finished with Taido, you now have all the fundamentals to continue to learn and improve.  In fact, a great teacher will take you to the next level before you master the level you are on.

If you are a Bruce fan, then you know that on his European tour this summer, his shows have been running three-and-a-half hours plus, and that’s without a break. In fact, the Boss has been playing without an intermission since his Reunion Tour in 1999. We say Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have it right.

My career has been driven by several principles that I believe are important to incorporate into any endeavor. For instance, I believe there’s real power in co-creating, and when two or more are gathered in a spirit of support, wonderful things happen.
