What’s the formula or recipe for making a living as a “One Man Variety Show” in which you travel the world and connect with audiences? Well, there isn’t one. The probability of following someone else’s exact journey is infinitesimally small. However, there is a formula for creating a path that is your own and which leads to fulfilment and success. The first step is to “just go”.

Meet Chris Ruggiero. Chris is an entertainer, author and podcaster. He has travelled throughout the USA and internationally doing his “one man variety show” which involved juggling fire, throwing knives, and connecting with all types of audiences. Chris has appeared on the Ellen De Generes Show (a highly popular show in the USA) and has written a book called Just Go: Adventures of a Travelling Entertainer and a Guide to Living Your Dream.

Chris is fun and interesting and he joins me on Episode 39 in which we cover:

  • Chris’ background, getting into entertainment and starting his travelling variety show;
  • Connecting with audiences;
  • Professionalism versus amateurism;
  • Honing your craft;
  • Risk and risk-taking;
  • What he means by “just go”;
  • Entertainment and fame in the digital era;
  • Success and chasing dreams
