Stand-Up Comedy & Life: Naked & Honest

Excerpt from Stand Up & Succeed by Tim Reynolds from Cometcatcher Press.

“Comedy at its most brilliant is when a comic stands on stage emotionally naked and honest.”

~Dan Quinn~

Faster Than Laughter
Joking at the Speed of Light

Business is most Successful when it’s stripped-down and honest. Start with that raw foundation and maintain a level of integrity in all your dealings — and people will trust you. When people trust you, more often than not, they will do business with you.

Bullsh*t might make your first sale, but it won’t bring that customer back again and again, and no great Success story was ever built on single sales. When people relate to you, they can trust you, and from trust comes loyalty.

And when it comes to personal relationships, if you can’t be authentic and real, then Success isn’t even going to visit your neighbourhood, let alone crash on your couch.


That’s it, that’s all.

Ciao for now,
