While reading Shannon’s book, I was blown away by the process of putting together a house concert and by how practical it is! If you are interested in learning more about it, I encourage you to read her book

No Booker, No Bouncer, No Bartender: How I Made $25K On A 2-Month House Concert Tour (And How You Can Too).



Some of the topics covered in Shannon’s Book:

How to build an itinerary using your existing email list and social media relationships

How to focus your audience and maximize your show’s intimacy and connectivity

How best to pace the evening to maximize guests’ experience (and your income!)

How to partner with your host for a financially successful event

Specific equipment recommendations and how-tos

How to create awareness, maximize your effectiveness, and make more money

How to set yourself up for a successful event by guaranteeing “critical mass”

Shannon Curtis has a new album releasing June 16th. I encourage you to check out on of the featured tracks,  I Know I Know. The message and meaning behind the song, at least in my opinion, is a testament to the “why” behind her success. It’s worth checking out!
