Four Reasons Not To Be A Children's Entertainer
Starting a children’s entertainment business can be a fantastic career move. As your own boss, you can build a business that works for you, and the start-up costs are often quite small. And what can be better than putting smiles on the faces of children?
That said, it’s not everyone’s idea of the perfect job. So before you launch yourself headlong into a new business that may not suit you, read four reasons why NOT to become a children’s entertainer.
1) You don’t like children
There’s one thing you can’t avoid if you’re a children’s entertainer, and the clue is in the job title! But seriously, if you really don’t like children, this isn’t the job for you.
2) You can’t work weekends
Most children’s parties take place at the weekend. So if for any reasons weekends are tricky for you, it’s probably wise to set your career sights elsewhere.
3) You don’t like being the centre of attention
As a children’s entertainer all eyes are (hopefully!) on you. So if standing up in front of a crowd of children, all waiting impatiently to be amused, strikes fear into your heart, then steer well clear.
4) You’re not good at selling yourself
Unless you can afford the services of a marketing or PR agency, you’ll need to learn how to market yourself if you want to build a successful children’s entertainment business.
