Never Give Up on the Tickets You Dream Of

If you have some time to kill either before or after the concert, particularly if you’ve chosen to actually stay at the Mohegan Sun, winning $3,863,188+ could definitely help you realize your dream ticket for primo Mohegan Sun Arena Seating at this or possibly even a future concert. Where did I pull that number (amount) out of? No…not there! That’s how much the home site reports that people playing at the Mohegan Sun casino have won so far today. Of course they make no mention of how much people have spent trying to win that amount but, hey—that’s why they call it gambling.

“Where Do You Want To Sit?”

“Oh wherever you want…I don’t care…you pick.” The obligatory exchange on a couple’s first visit to a movie theater. (And then when you pick that coveted center first row you get “Oh God! This is way too close. I’ll break my neck!” No, really, allow me to do that for you.) Well, purchasing your tickets ahead of time takes care of that dilemma—at least at the entertainment venue itself. The ordering of those tickets may still cause the obligatory exchange but by checking out the seating charts on the web, you will know where you’ll be sitting before you even get there.

Be Careful Where You Buy

For this last summer Olympics that most of us enjoyed, buying a ticket to see your favorite athlete or event was riskier that the high dive! There was something like 500 fraudulent sites for ticket purchasing/sales. Lots of arrests were made, thank goodness, but you know that in order for authorities to find these guys somebody had to get scammed. So whichever seats you long for at the next event, just try to check out where or who you are buying the tickets from.

FYI: as much as I love them, ‘sell-it-yourself’ sites like eBay, Amazon and Craig’s List are ‘questionable’ sources from which to buy tickets.

Can’t Miss Concerts of 2012

In the music and entertainment industry, there are concerts, and then there are Madison Square Garden concerts. Historically, the biggest acts have salivated over the chance to play the Garden, and some of them have been willing to wait for years to get in. This year, the concert season is rolling along nicely, with MSG’s docket of performers being as impressive as one might expect.

The Skyline’s Crown Jewel

While the summer touring season winds down as the leaves turn colors and the kids trudge back off to school, MSG will be providing the music this winter, starting in November. It is a testament to the magnetism of both Manhattan and Madison Square Garden that people will travel “Back East” when the snow is flying in order to not miss out on the biggest shows of the year. Patrons appreciate the stateliness and ambience of the arena as much as they enjoy the top-shelf entertainment.

Feel the Noise

This year has already seen its usual lion’s share of entertainment at Madison Square Garden, including the explosion of “Linsanity” on the New York Knicks (alas, that fire has since been put out). The pop/rock group Nickelback made their first MSG appearance there this year. The Japanese band L’Arc-en-Ciel became a standing-room only event back in March. This year’s schedule will include Madonna, The Who’s Quadrophenia tour, Neil Young (yes, with Crazy Horse), the great Leonard Cohen and the always-popular Justin Bieber.

The popularity of MSG as a venue is even reflected in video games, with Rock Band emulating MSG with a New York arena called “Empire Square Garden”. With the capacity to hold as many as 20,000 fans, Madison Square Garden would seem at first to be something less than cozy. The history of the building, though, along with the renovations that ramp up the experience for the fans.

In all walks of life leaders are the people who have a vision and are so passionate about what they believe in that they can get others to follow their direction and be on board with their vision.

As early as childhood leaders are a part of our life, from that kid on the playground who can get everyone involved in what game he wants to play to the corporate boardroom where the emergent leader can lay out a plan and motivate others to follow his proposition.

Natural Leaders

Natural leaders are born to lead and others are nurtured to their fullest potential.  Often times in a business environment someone will recognize the potential of one of the staff to lead others.  They are people who are creative, they are able to articulate their plan and are passionate and determined to achieve a task.  In an effort to encourage their employees to achieve, potential leaders are sometimes offered the opportunity to pursue a Leadership Degree online or at a local college at their company’s expense, in order to develop their leadership skills.
