3 things you NEED to do each week to earn an extra 40K this year.


This blog is for Balloon Distractions Regional Leaders who want to earn an extra 40K this year by building a region with us.

If you are not in our organization please move on… these are not the droids you are looking for…. go watch reruns on TV, or spend the next 4 hours watching funny cat videos on YouTube.

Still with me? Great! There are three activities I need you to do EACH week, starting NOW. Here is a simple summary:


1. Have a conversation with potential team members and current team members.

2. Have a conversation with potential clients and current clients.

3. Learn.


Here is the break down:

1. Have a conversation with potential team members and current team members.

You should be holding interviews and training sessions every week with potential team members, and talking to the Entertainers on your team at least once a week. Look at your roster and identify any Entertainers who have not booked gigs lately, call them and see what is going on in their life.

Calling people and just making a connection shows that you care about them, so does training them to MOVE UP in our organization.

If you have a sharp Entertainer on your team bring them with you to the weekly interview sessions and teach them how to interview and develop a crew. You WILL earn far more as a Regional Leader if you develop 20 Trainers over a large geographic area. The greatest leaders, the wealthiest people in the world, have all become adept at developing OTHER leaders and adding value to their lives. In terms of the expansion of our company the entire USA is WIDE open, we are barely scratching the surface of our potential.

2. Have a conversation with potential clients and current clients.

Even if you are light on staffing you are probably filling gigs in your region. Talk to the managers, ask them how you can do a better job, ask the GM about how you can get this concept in other restaurants in that specific chain. Ask the GM if he knows OTHER managers in other brands.

If your Entertainers have populated the entire schedule get out there and land tryouts in new locations!

If you JUST did a tryout get on the phone and close the deal!

Every new client you land will earn you $2K to $3K per year depending on how you price it out, so if you want to add $40K to your income you need to find 16 to 20 new recurring clients.

There are 980,000 restaurants in the USA, I’ll bet 1,000 are within 40 minutes of your front door.

3. Learn and GROW every week.

If you are a NEW Regional Leader with Balloon Distractions start by reading and LEARNING our manuals on Building a Crew, Selling Restaurants and Building a Region. This is the foundation for earning that extra 40K this year. Get that learning curve out of the way FIRST, everything will proceed from there.

Get on our weekly Regional Leader conference call.

BUT ALSO…. get on Wikipedia and read about the restaurant biz, here is the story behind Chili’s:


You can also read about Applebee’s, IHOP, Texas Roadhouse, etc. The more you know about the client the more you can use that in your sales pitch.

And what about your own personal development? Right now I’m reading the Dave Ramsey book in the pic, NOTE that the TV is turned OFF.

I like Dave Ramsey, Jim Collins, Pamela Meyer, Steven R. Covey, Zig Ziglar, Dan Miller, Norman Vincent Peale, Earl Nightingale, Max Lucado, etc.

There are AWESOME teachers out there who will teach you everything you will ever need to know about success.

You can buy used paperbacks on Amazon for $3, and if you order several books from one seller the shipping will be less. Surround yourself with books, I have them in the bathroom, my car, my kitchen table and all over my home office.

Readers are LEADERS.

You can also watch these authors on YouTube or buy audio CDs and podcasts that you can listen to in your car.   

Here is a live stream link to Dave Ramsey’s radio show on the internet:


Your income will not grow until YOU grow.

Turn OFF your TV, log OFF Facebook and get out there and tackle these action steps.
