Influencer Summit @ LiveNation

I stood behind the production board, carefully monitoring each camera and transition, counting the seconds until I could have my next beer. The influencers on stage were captivating, sure, but in my mind, it was me that belonged there, under the spotlight. It was me that the fans wanted to see, the one they would scream for, the one that would be the talk of the town. As the stream continued, my mind wandered to memories of past shows, the sound of the crowd roaring in my ears, the lights flashing around me. I could almost feel the adrenaline pumping through my veins, the rush of excitement that came with performing in front of fans. I was within arms reach of fame, and I wanted more. But as the night went on, and the broadcast drew to a close, I knew that I couldn’t let my longing for the spotlight consume me. I had a family to provide for, and the work that was coming in was steady and lucrative. As much as I wanted to be the one on stage, I couldn’t risk everything for the chance at fame. I found myself drowning my sorrows in alcohol once again. It was a habit that I couldn’t shake, a constant reminder of the demons that I had battled for so many years. But as I sat there, nursing my drink and lost in my own thoughts, I knew that I had to make a change. As we packed up the equipment and headed out of LiveNation HQ, I heard questions ringing in my head. What if I had taken a different path? What if I had pursued my dreams of stardom with more determination? But as I looked up at the bright lights of New York City, I knew that I had made the right choice. My family was my priority, and as long as they were taken care of, I could still find joy in the work that I did. And who knows? Maybe one day, I’ll find my way back to the stage.
