A friend of mine auditioned as a back up singer for a Rolling Stones tour.
She had a great voice and when she got a call back, she was super excited.
“Mick Jagger walked into the room and said, ‘You’re all here because you have the chops. But if you ain’t fun on the bus, you ain’t going.'”
And he walked out.
Think about it.
Going on tour means you will be living, performing, sleeping, traveling and being with a group of people in close quarters for a long time. It is very important to get the right people and the right energy from the beginning.
You have to be just as focused on getting this right for your team.
Start by asking yourself, “Is this someone I can have dinner with?”
