What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Typically I make contact with the customer and discuss customers needs. Then we discuss the entertainment package options and if they decide to book we exchange the necessary information.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was a licensed day care provider prior to becoming a children's entertainer. I have been to a few clown conventions and won 1st place at the San Francisco International clown convention.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My sister started clowning first. When I saw how much fun she was having I decided to give it a go myself.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do a lot of birthday parties entertaining with face painting, magic, and balloon twisting. I usually come dressed as a clown.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would advice customers to hire the entertainers directly if possible as apposed to hiring through a booking agency. This would keep customer costs down.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What time do you want your entertainment to start? You should allow for most guests to have arrived prior to entertainment. Also how many guest will be needing entertainment services.
