EP 153: Connie Lansberg (autogenerated)

[00:00:00] Dane Reis: [00:00:00] you booked it. Episode 153. Okay, let’s get started. I am excited to introduce my guest today. Connie Landsberg. Are you ready for this Connie? 

[00:00:17]Connie Lansberg: [00:00:17] I absolutely am.

[00:00:19] Dane Reis: [00:00:19] Brilliant. Connie is a jazz artist based out of Melbourne Australia, where she has placed original songs in globally. Syndicated Australian television shows her jazz ensemble.

[00:00:31] The Connie Landsberg quartet has become a mainstay of the Melbourne jazz. Seen at her creative core. Connie is a storyteller, her songs, brim with elegantly expressive melodies and poetic lyrics. She is inspired as much by Shakespeare as she is by Simon and Garfunkel, Carol King and Patsy Cline. Her most recent project Sierra’s gift is a trilogy of what she calls a six.

[00:00:55] Headed monster, a trilogy of interconnected albums and books. Connie has even been quoted saying reading and music have always been the most important things to me.  and what ties these together in my work are well-chosen words. The difference. It’s just in the word count, Connie. That is a quick intro of who you are and what you’ve done, but why don’t you tell us a little bit more about yourself, fill in the gaps and a little bit more about what you do as a professional in the entertainment industry.

[00:01:28]Connie Lansberg: [00:01:28] I started as an actress and I went to school in London, the Royal Academy of dramatic arts and diet, always, which is why I love Shakespeare. I had a love for Shakespeare, even as a kid. Um, the singing caper came in a bit later. Um, I was asked. I’d always tell him I’ve done musicals and things like that, but I hadn’t quite thought of singing as a career back then.

[00:01:54]Um, I didn’t think it was my. Best talent. But I got pulled into, I got asked to do, um, a big band gig. They had suddenly lost their singer and I had been listening to Sarah Vaughn doing big band, and it was a song, I didn’t know all of me, but there was no rehearsal, which is the norm I discovered for

[00:02:16] Dane Reis: [00:02:16] Yeah, yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah.

[00:02:18] Connie Lansberg: [00:02:18] No rehearsal, I haven’t studied jazz. It wasn’t anything I was ever thinking of doing. Um, but at home, well, what the hell let’s go? So I went in and I remember the music starting and he got to understand there’s, you know, four trumpets and four sexism and four trombones. It was like a wall of sound coming at me.

[00:02:39]And I was like, Oh my God sang the song. And I thought, well, that’s just awful. I was just awful. I thought, well, they’ll never invite me back. Um, and then somebody had recorded it when I heard it. I was really surprised there was something in my voice that was lively. Happy, clear. And really told the story and I just was like, wow.

[00:03:10]I, I, this actually suits me. There was just the vibrancy of it and the energy behind it. It suited me. And I ended up having my own all girl, big band for quite a while, um, um, from this, and then moved. Back into, um, I decided it was time to do a small group and that’s where it all started, where I really had to learn on the job, what it was to be a jazz singer, because it just wasn’t anything I was expecting, but I loved it because of the, the nature of the stories and jazz just suits my.

[00:03:47] Tiny little bit old fashioned nature. And I just, I don’t forget the words, um, which I find really interesting because the stories are so cohesive and the word choice. So, yeah. Excellent that it they’re, they’re much easier to remember. Plus they usually 32 bars. So from that, um, I had to work my way up. I told them, let acting go.

[00:04:11] It just didn’t have the same. Uh, it didn’t have the same immediacy. And I had also started, I mean, I’ve always written songs. I just never expected to sing them. Which is I guess, a weird thing. Um, I just wrote them. They just always came to me. I would write them and that would be it. So this has just been a really strange thing.

[00:04:31] That’s dragged me along. Um, this project started a long time ago.  it, it came from a song that didn’t end up on the album, but we’ll. Well ended up on some album, um, called Cinderella and I was watching the news and I had, there was a teacher talking to her 10 year old girls saying, you know, the story of Cinderella is not really a good role model.

[00:04:53] And they were outraged. They loved her. And I thought, Oh dear, that teachers, right. right. And those little girls don’t want to let it go. And I thought, Hmm. Hmm. And out came this song Cinderella. And when I. Saying it to someone that’s sort of a bit of a wrap with singing. They said you should write a musical. And all of a sudden, my life changed because as an actor and someone who had an instinct that I should be writing and I learned later, I absolutely should be.

[00:05:24] That’s my soul gift. Um, I Oh, okay. Well, I’ll sit down and write the songs, write the script. I’ll act in it, you know, one another’s you so young and so young and full of life. And, uh, it started from there and this thing has morphed and changed. It threw me to script writing. I now write the scripts first because they make excellent outlines for the books.

[00:05:47]I also don’t you hate going, you’ve read a book and you go to the movie and it’s just like, they left all the good stuff out.

[00:05:53] Dane Reis: [00:05:53] yeah, exactly. All the

[00:05:54] Connie Lansberg: [00:05:54] Hey, if I write the, the script first, all the good stuff will be in there. And then the book I’ll just expand. And when you have both experiences, you won’t be left, wanting.

[00:06:05] Dane Reis: [00:06:05] team.

[00:06:06]Connie Lansberg: [00:06:06] my life had its own life and I just had to follow along. Um, that’s kind of how it’s being.

[00:06:14]Dane Reis: [00:06:14] . Brilliant. I love that journey. And let’s dig into this first question here and. Connie look, of course I am a sucker for a good quote.

[00:06:26] What is your favorite quote? You’d like to share with everyone?

[00:06:29]Connie Lansberg: [00:06:29] No, I have to do two. The first one Pythagoras, let’s go back to Pythagoras.

[00:06:34] Dane Reis: [00:06:34] Alrighty.

[00:06:35] Connie Lansberg: [00:06:35] And my books are about music in a roundabout way. The highest goal of music is to connect one soul to their divine nature, not just entertainment.

[00:06:49]And the second one by Andrea Hess, who created an very interesting healing program program called soul realignment is we are the powerful creators of our own existence.

[00:07:02]Now put those two together and boom.

[00:07:05]Dane Reis: [00:07:05] Yeah, fantastic

[00:07:07] Connie Lansberg: [00:07:07] on both of those. So yeah. It’s really interesting. You know, this is, I had an instinct for this and I didn’t find this quote till quite recently. And I thought, Oh, that’s it. That’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve had an instinct that we’re the reason music is so powerful is that it helps to align the soul.

[00:07:27]We have, we have blueprints that we’re born with or when our soul is first created, I I’ll make a little.

[00:07:32] Dane Reis: [00:07:32] a little

[00:07:33]Connie Lansberg: [00:07:33] Disclaimer beer. I was so enamored by Andrew Hess’s, um, ideas that I actually took her entire course. And I’m now a level five soul realignment practitioner. Yeah,

[00:07:45] Dane Reis: [00:07:45] Very cool.

[00:07:47] Connie Lansberg: [00:07:47] it was starting is research for the books.

[00:07:50]Um, I it’s fantasy. The books are fantasy, but I’m starting to learn. It’s not as. Fantastical as I thought it was. Um, and so, um, the idea that music allows us to be in the moment and that is the place of power. So if you’re really listening to music, you’re in the moment and right there, right there, you’re in a state of receivership, you can then receive energy because you’re right there in the moment.

[00:08:14] Music also helps us realize we’re divine. We, we, our souls are divine. We are divine. So music’s really like it. It’s the big thing. And it’s, it’s a powerful creation language. And he, if human beings really learned to use it for what it is, um, we could power through most of the problems in this world. And then in the same way, It w once we finally take responsibility for everything, we are the powerful creators of our own existence, but good and bad.

[00:08:48] You’ll stop being so traumatized by it. And you’ll say, what am I believing to create this? How can I change that belief to create this instead? And I’m just using my life. I’m using my assistance to bear out this, this experiment, this to, to. See how this works and it’s really interesting.

[00:09:10]Dane Reis: [00:09:10] very cool. And let’s get into this next section here. And Connie, of course you are an entertainer musician. I am an entertainer and I. Think that you’d agree that this industry can be one of the most subjective and brutally honest, personally, emotional industries in existence. And you know, you know, as well as I, that in order to create and have a successful career in this industry, like you’re having now, it takes a lot of dedication and hard work.

[00:09:42] And while yeah, there’s an outrageous amount of fun and excitement doing what we do. There are also our fair share of obstacles, challenges, and failures. We are going to experience and we’re going to have to move forward through. So tell us what is one key challenge, obstacle or failure you’ve experienced in your career and how did you come out?

[00:10:02] The other side better because of it.

[00:10:04]Connie Lansberg: [00:10:04] I have my own obstacle. I am my own obstacle. Well, we are all our own obstacle. I have discovered the self-talk, um, Oh, I’m not good enough. I don’t see myself anywhere. No, one’s going to listen to this. No, one’s going to choose me, you know, and you have to, I finally realized the secret, just do the work.

[00:10:26] Do the work and stay happy while you’re doing it because you can be doing great work, but if you’re making your family or your loved ones suffer by complaining and tearing your hair out, that’s just not going to work. You have to do the work and you know, what, what I really learned and it’s so clear, every delay.

[00:10:50]It’s for a reason. So when you something happens and it didn’t, it didn’t happen what you thought or what you were going for. Didn’t happen. Just stop and say, right? It’s not ready. Thank you. Go back and start the work again, because the thing is, if you do the work and you keep creating, you can’t help, but get to a point where you cannot be denied, but most people stop before they get there.

[00:11:15]They judge themselves on how long something is taking. I’m telling you the, the amount of times I’ve tried to throw this story away from the point that where it was a musical and got stolen. I won’t even go into that story to the point of it. Now, me getting a three book deal when I only asked for one from this publisher so that I could now expand the story exponentially.

[00:11:42]Um, there were so many stops and starts and, you know, tearing my hair out, um, you know, completely whining and crying and, you know, you know, finally I just thought. I’ll shut up and just shut up and do the work, sit down and do the work. When that book is good enough, you will get a publishing. You know, when your songs are ready, they will go out there.

[00:12:04] And that’s what I did. There’s also dang, there is also a thing called divine timing. We all have a guide. This I learned through my work as a soul realignment practitioner. We have a guy who’s. Job it is to make the timing. Right. Right. And so to rail against the timing of things is going to do you no good. Just every delay is for a reason, get back to work.

[00:12:32]That’s it?

[00:12:33]Dane Reis: [00:12:33] Every delay is for a reason. That is so good. I’m so glad that you gave us all of that insight and that you’re on   this show right now, because it’s so important for all the artists out there, listening to this podcast too. Really take what Connie just said to heart.

[00:12:54] That’s why this podcast is so important for all aspiring professional entertainers, all people that are entertainers that are we’re in and amongst it as our careers, we sometimes lose sight of that. We get caught up in the day to day or chasing that, that milestone in instead. Really it’s about the work it’s about that journey and to live in that, and that’s where the fulfillment comes and that’s also ultimately where all the success comes from.

[00:13:22]Connie Lansberg: [00:13:22] Hmm. It’s about being prolific. Um, you’re not going to be good. When you start, no matter how naturally talented you are, no matter your natural talent, you’re not going to be good when you start. Um, it is about being prolific creating. We are here to create anything, but, but it also needs to come from you.

[00:13:44] Now here’s the thing. Authenticity is also the only thing that will make you last. If you’ve listened to the songs, you will know they are not like other songs, but if I did anything else, I would not be true to me. And I think my real gift is that I am fearless about being myself. Now, I don’t know where that came from.

[00:14:10] I have to say, well, actually I do, but I’m not going to go into it. It’s too cold. Um, I, I know myself on a store, which is an interesting thing, and it’s just something that I wish I could do for everybody. I’m mostly doing it for musicians at the moment, because it is so hard for us to understand why things are, what they are and what our blocks are and what our restrictions are.

[00:14:31]Um, but I. Really did about eight years ago, sit down and said, I am only interested in what is inside me and putting it out. And I’m just going to keep going until I think everything is out. I doubt it ever will be, but, um, that’s how I framed it. I’m only interested in what’s inside me and getting that out on paper.

[00:14:55]And so I, I actually gave up any idea of being commercial, any ideas, being popular, any adult idea, even anybody ever hearing any thing really, and just made a commitment to being authentic. , but that’s what it’s about. Um, the five out of six times I put out on Spotify, got put onto official Spotify, jazz playlist.

[00:15:19]That’s crazy.

[00:15:21] Dane Reis: [00:15:21] yeah. Wow.

[00:15:22] Connie Lansberg: [00:15:22] That’s crazy. Like I am that was all I needed to say. Right. Okay. Wow. Cause he songs aren’t normal jazz. They’re a real crossover, uh, kind of a very Shondra bending of folk. Um, Like all or even country, I write stories. So these are stories I’m done with the most amazing jazz players. Um, with slightly classical bent, both of them, Ben, Pam, and who’s on the double bass is the bass player for the Melbourne symphony orchestra.

[00:15:52] And Mark Fitsgibbons started out with classical. I grew up with classical and church music, so you can imagine all of that swirling around. Um, and, uh, my great love is collaboration. I don’t, I write the words, I write the melody. I put a basis of, uh, Of a court court structure. And then I tell them, what is this song for you?

[00:16:13] And then, and it’s just, that’s what comes out. It’s, it’s incredible. It’s humble that they’ll even do that for me. Um, but we’ve done three albums together now. So it’s obviously something that works, but yeah, it’s. Prolific be prolific, just keep creating and what, at some point they will not be able to deny you.

[00:16:35]Dane Reis: [00:16:35] Yes. So great. Love your process. Love all that advice. Thank you. And let’s get into a time that I like to call your. Spotlight moment. That one moment in time you realized that yes, I am going to be an entertainer for a living or maybe it was, yes. This is what I need to be doing as part of the entertainment industry.

[00:17:04] Tell us about that.

[00:17:06]Connie Lansberg: [00:17:06] look, I, I, um, I’m an inner. I’m from a soul group that is designed for entertainment. So I actually came in as a little, little tiny kid and knew I was going to be an actor. I also knew I was going to go to England to be an actor. So, and I did that. Um, so it was more I’d hadn’t instinct. I should be writing a book.

[00:17:26]I mean, cause all I do is read, I read, read, read, read, read, and. But to sit down long. I didn’t think I could sit down long enough to write a book, but at one point I had, um, an American like literary manager for my show scripts. Cause I had been writing scripts. Um, I had a mentor and I was, we were trying to figure out what the story was and how to distill it down into one script. And, uh, this woman said, yeah, but you’re nobody, and this is expensive. The script, write a book. I was like, what, what? And then when I started, right, I didn’t, I mean, Uh, reading books and writing books are really two different things. Writing scripts and writing books, two different things, completely different.

[00:18:07] They don’t cross over at all, but because I’ve been writing scripts, I immediately, so I sat down because I’m really good when somebody tells me I need this from you. I, I like to give it to them. That’s just me. I like to say, okay. But I’m telling you this was, uh, I had, I had not studied writing or anything like that.

[00:18:26]Um, I had to sit down and just learned. I sat down, I started writing and because I stayed at it, even though I wasn’t sure because I had the script, I kinda, I knew where I was going. What started to happen was the, the characters were telling me where to go next. And. That my friend is mad. It’s like what?

[00:18:50] And then it gave me the will to spend the years that it took to learn, to do this properly, to learn, to do what well, um, because I’d gotten to the point where the magic happens. So I think that was the thing that pulled everything together. This book, because I’ve learned things that are in a circle. You can have, I have three things I want.

[00:19:13] I want to make movies out of my story. I wanted the book and I want the songs to be in the movie, right. As a big ask, but you know, why play small? What’s why, where there’s no point in playing. No, no point it might be a pipe dream. It might never happen, but it doesn’t stop me from trying. So I’ve learned that, um, it D it doesn’t matter in the circle of things where it starts. Because a project like that is a circle. So if the music hits first, people might be more interested in the book or they might be more interested in, Hey, let’s have a look at this script. If the book is first, they’ll think, yeah, let’s look at the script. All right, let’s put your music, you see what I mean? you see what I mean?

[00:19:52]It’s a circle, so it doesn’t matter. So I kind of understood pretty quickly my willingness to sit down. And write this book and boy, Oh boy. What a process that is, that was hard work that’s I had to learn how to work hard. That’s what I had to learn to do to work hard, to just sit at it and did, and it became the point where your brutal editor is your best friend.

[00:20:16]That’s just, I know that seems odd, but the more brutal you are as an editor, the better I like you, because the thing is, I don’t want to waste time. If what I’m doing is crap. You need to tell me and I’ll find a way for it. Not to be crap, but I’m not going to get upset. You’re the editor. You’re the one who has experienced this bit is crap.

[00:20:36] You’re going to have to rewrite it. Great. Thank you. So that learning that learning to work hard, learning to focus. Is also an essential part in doing the work. Um, I hadn’t learned to work hard before this school was too easy. I fell into singing sort of easily got gigs easily. This book taught me how to work hard and I am for ever grateful to that.

[00:21:01]Dane Reis: [00:21:01] Great. And let’s piggy back on that real quick and talk about your number one, booked it moment. Walk us through that day. What was going on in your life? And what about that moment? Makes it your favorite? Booked it moment.

[00:21:20]Connie Lansberg: [00:21:20] Well, this might seem, but I got hired, um, on, uh, Weekly basis, you know, beautiful, beautiful bar. It was a strange place. It was owned by Taiwanese people. And not only did it have this beautiful bar with a grand piano, it was so beautiful and elegant. Um, they, they had a spa attached to it. It was a Taiwanese.

[00:21:40]Um, model that they thought would work in Australia and the owner loved jazz. So this money was great. The room was beautiful. It sounded wonderful. Nobody came nobody. And I was like, is this. I don’t know what to do here, because no matter how much money are you getting paid. If nobody’s listening, it’s not worth it.

[00:22:02] It’s you need the exchange of energy to make it worth it. Um, we do it to exchange energy with each other. Not, not just play with it. Oh, I mean, I mean, it’s wonderful playing with the band, but really. We weren’t happy. And I just looked around, I was up on the third floor and I thought it’s just, this place is just a big secret.

[00:22:18] And I thought, yeah, it’s a big secret that maybe people would be interested in. And I set up a website called a secret place.com.edu. And I wrote some copy and I ran an ad. And I put it up on all the free things. And the whole idea was I was going to give you a wonderful experience and you were going to get on the guest list.

[00:22:48] It’s free to get in. Cause otherwise it was $35 to get in. Um, and all of a sudden I had people emailing me. I didn’t even tell them who the band was. I gained this huge email list from it. I had wonderful audiences who were so appreciative of this beautiful life. I never even told them who the band was.

[00:23:10] So when I I’ve been I’m on email with them, it was this beautiful. Thing about trust. They trusted me to pay their booking fee without knowing where they were going. And I thought that was the most and it, and we’ll get this going again. Um, the most beautiful thing ever, and it kind of made me realize that people just want an experience.

[00:23:30]And I was going to give it to them. It was going to be hampered. They were on the guest list. There’s beautiful seats were there. The band was going to be great. They could get to know the band later. I didn’t have to sell the band. Um, I was giving them a very high end experience for a very reasonable cost.

[00:23:48]And it worked and I can now take that anywhere. And I thought, wow, I can now be the powerful creator of my own existence because I know how to take this audience generation thing and take it anywhere I want, because somehow through the internet, people trusted me. They trusted that I wasn’t going to take their money and run it.

[00:24:08] It was fantastic. It warms my heart.

[00:24:12] Dane Reis: [00:24:12] Yeah.

[00:24:13] Brilliant. 

[00:24:13] Connie Lansberg: [00:24:13] a strike you booked at the moment? I just think it was it to me. It’s coming up with that and making that work. Um, I ended up getting a sponsorship from the city of Melbourne at one point where we had over a hundred people trying to stuff into this club. Um, so I mean, I was, that was pretty cool.

[00:24:30] Dane Reis: [00:24:30] That is so cool. I think that that absolutely qualifies as a, you booked it and moment, because look, you, you created something, but you had, you had everything going for you, right. With that room, with the band, with everything, but you still need those people for that exchange of energy, like you said, and to make that work is huge.

[00:24:48] That’s a huge book that moment. And then. The room could be in the experience could be what everyone was craving and 

[00:24:54]needing. 

[00:24:55] Connie Lansberg: [00:24:55] Yes. Yes. Everybody needs. Everybody needs to do. It’d be witnessed, um, every year, buddy. Neat. What I mean by that is, is that we’re really not here to judge people. We’re just here to say, Oh, those are your talents. I see you. Isn’t that great. And Oh, when we learn to do that and just making people feel special, looked after scene, I just think that’s.

[00:25:20]I love doing that. Like to me, these gigs, it’s more like, I’m just the hostess. You come to my living room and I’m going to sing for you. I put on a great band for you. I’m going to do a little singing. Don’t mind me. If you have one.

[00:25:35] Dane Reis: [00:25:35] yeah, there you go. So good. And let’s take a moment to talk about the present. What projects are you working on now? What are you looking forward to? And it’s a kind of a weird time, right? Where it’s this global pandemic. How do you see the entertainment industry moving forward in the next couple of years,

[00:25:55]Connie Lansberg: [00:25:55] Look,  people have to get back in front of people. This is, this is because. They don’t know why they love music so much. They don’t understand it’s the it’s at this point, when you’re truly listening that you’re in a state of receivership, you’re receiving divine source energy, you’re receiving you’re, you’re keeping your soul anchored in your body, you know, with music.

[00:26:16] That’s what it does. It anchors your soul into your body so that you can be human. You know, we’re not, we are really here to learn how to be human, not to be spirits. We already know how to do that. We already know how. To be higher dimensional. We know that we’re here to learn how to be human and all of that entails and music just helps us settle, you know, so we got to get people back in front of live people because of that exchange of energy.

[00:26:46]I certainly am going to try to start up a secret place. Um, this time with a sponsorship, because you know, at that at the club I was being paid this time, I’m going to try and take it on myself. and do everything. Um, I’m in the middle of the second book,  my dad always said, and he’s a hugely successful businessman.

[00:27:05]Um, does the thing you don’t want to do. That’s usually the key and the thing I haven’t wanted to do is learn how to truly market and use a funnel and all that stuff that I have no interest in, but I invested in it and I’m going to give it a go because if I can learn to do it, then I can sort of help.

[00:27:23]Other jazz musicians learn how to do it. Um, we’re such a niche market that it’s often hard to get out into the world, especially from Australia. Um, I have a whole two more albums waiting to be done, so it’s never ending. I mean, I mean, I’ll never run out.

[00:27:44]Dane Reis: [00:27:44] Very cool. And this time to move on to one of my favorite sections of the interview, I call it the grease lightening round. Uh huh. I am going to ask you a handful of questions. I want you to answer them as quickly and concisely as possible one after another. Are you ready? All right. First question. What was the one thing holding you back from committing to a career as an entertainer?  Second question. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

[00:28:15]Connie Lansberg: [00:28:15] The thing I just said, do the thing you’ve been avoiding

[00:28:19]Dane Reis: [00:28:19] Yes. Third question. What is something that is working for you right now? Or if you’d like to go pre COVID, what was working for you before our industry went on? Pause.

[00:28:31] Connie Lansberg: [00:28:31] was a secret place.

[00:28:33]Dane Reis: [00:28:33] As fourth question, what is your best resource? Whether that is a book, a movie, a YouTube video, maybe a podcast or a piece of technology you found is helping your career right now.

[00:28:46]Connie Lansberg: [00:28:46] So realignment, um, I became a practitioner, but if you find somebody to do that for you and get to know yourself on a soul level, so much becomes clear. So soul realignment.

[00:29:00]Dane Reis: [00:29:00] Fantastic. And is that something people can just simply Google or do you have a specific resource that we can,

[00:29:06] people can check out out 

[00:29:07] Connie Lansberg: [00:29:07] just Google. Andrea has sole realignment and she has a list of practitioners. And, um, and there’s some in Australia. I know because we’re on calls and, and they’re Australian ones, but it doesn’t matter anywhere in the world, they do it by zoom. And, um, you don’t need to be there. This is, they work with the Akashic records, which is like a big computer.

[00:29:26] With all the energetic codes for everything. And we were taught how to read it. And it’s pretty simple and it’s kind of kind of science. I know it sounds real. Woo spiritual. It’s just pretty down. It’s down to earth. It’s a database and we know how to read it and it’s incredible.

[00:29:43]Dane Reis: [00:29:43] very cool. And the fifth question, if you had to start your career from scratch, but you still had all the knowledge and experience you’ve collected from your career in this industry, what would you do or not do? Would you do anything differently or would you keep it the same?

[00:30:01]Connie Lansberg: [00:30:01] I would have said yes. When the ABC asked me to be on place school. I just come from England, the Royal Academy of dramatic arts. I was very up myself and, um, I didn’t know what that was. And I thought, no, no, no, no, no, I’m not. I’m not doing children’s television. Oh my God. If I’d only known,

[00:30:23] Dane Reis: [00:30:23] Oh, Australian play school is fantastic.

[00:30:26] Connie Lansberg: [00:30:26] I know that’s a sin. That’s that’s, that’s what I would’ve done differently.

[00:30:30] Okay. 

[00:30:32] Dane Reis: [00:30:32] And the last question, what is it? The golden nugget knowledge of drop you’ve learned from your successful career in this industry, you’d like to leave with our listeners.

[00:30:42]Connie Lansberg: [00:30:42] Be prolific create nonstop and don’t judge how long it takes. You will eventually get to a place where you cannot be denied.
