Going On Tour?

There are a wide range of things you can do to incorporate your values into your tour. In addition to fan engagement tactics, there are ways to make sure that the team you put together, your routing and supporting communication for your tour is aligned. When planning these aspects of your tour, it's ideal to get everything in place before you hit the road and transition to implementation once you're on the road. Relying on planning things while you are touring might create too much pressure in an already exhausting and pressurized situation. 

When thinking about touring options, you can think about fan facing activities, your team that reflects your values and practical refinements. It will be hard to do everything at once, so consider choosing an area of focus for this tour with the intention to expand that for your next one.

When you and your team are aligned and reflective of your core values, you will have that many more people who are ready to support the strategy development and implementation. Making these steps will be more successful if you are also doing the personal work it takes to show up with your best self.
