Hey Glen:

Professional is only as professional as you want to be. Having the professionalism needed to be a professional storyteller is that professionalism should be the most important thing about your performing. Arrive early to gigs, be courteous to your sponsors at festivals, be friendly to people who come up to you and tell you how wonderful you are and thank them. Don't do what I did when I first started. I'd say, "Was I really? I don't know..well......" Just accept their compliments and say thanks. I do that now. Self-deprecation is not an "IN" thing to do. Humble is o.k., but don't ever negate anything people say to you. Have polished stories, but don't, I repat, don't memorize them word for word. That's not storytelling. That's memorization and that's quite different from telling a tale. Welcome to the often fun and sometimes scary world of performing arts where anything can and DOES happen.

Peace.

Passion, now that's worth heralding. Forget the credentials, Glen. Just jump in and learn through the school of experience.
