Successful Performercast Going Dark (but I’ll be back later…)


I wanted to announce that I’m “going dark” with this show for a while in order to work on other projects (including one that I’m really excited about with my wife) and to free up some margin in my life as I’m pulling a lot of overtime at my day job.

Funny thing: Of regular episodes, I’ve done 99, and 99 is a very special number to me. It’s the number that Wayne Gretzky wore and he’s one of my early heroes in life. One of my favorite quotes by him is “You miss 100% of the shots you never take,” and that’s exactly what I’m doing with a new project I’m working on with my wife.

As you may have gathered from past episodes, we’re huge Disney fans over here and are annual pass holders at Disneyland which we visit frequently. Over the years, we’ve gotten pretty good at streamlining our visits to get the most out of them which can be a challenge when you have young children, so we’ve decided to write a book of tips and tricks on visiting Disneyland with young children. We’re also going to be launching a supporting podcast offering park tips, tricks, inspiration, and fun, in order to help build an audience. If you’d like to be notified when we launch, you can visit us at or email us at and we’ll be sure to let you know when we launch. It’ll be very soon!

Thank you all for listening and for your support. I’m leaving the site open and all the episodes available (see below the break or go to the archives page), so please continue to tell your friends about this free resource at This isn’t a goodbye, but a see you later. I’ll be back.

As always, please feel free to drop me a line. You’ll always be able to reach me at or on Facebook or Twitter. See you in the future!


Below the break is a running list of all of my interview archives, separated into seasons and easy to scan through. Happy listening!

Oops, I’m running late because…

why i'm late

Hey everyone. I’m running a little late with the next episode, and the above is my best excuse!

Seriously though, I blame it on overtime and my “dang nine-to-five!”

The latest episode featuring Thom Britton will be out on Saturday and you’re gonna love it! Thanks for bearing with me.

I love you! :*

The Successful Performercast—Launching April 25!

successful performercast album artThe Successful Performercast is the show where I interview one full-time professional entertainer per week with the goal of inspiring and equipping those who are working to make the leap themselves. This is a show for all performers whether you’re a magician, a comedian, a juggler, or anything in between. You’ll hear and learn from the pros that are actually out there making a living doing what they love.

Right now I’m interviewing performers and getting ready for launch. If you know anyone who you would like to hear interviewed, or would like to be interviewed yourself, please email me at {This email is obscured. Your must have javascript enabled to see it}.

If you’d like to download a free preview episode, featuring an interview with Houston magician Scott Wells, and be the first to know when we officially launch, sign up for the email list over there in the right column. –––>

See you on the 25th!

-Kris Sheppard
