Mark H. Maxwell Advice

Mark H. Maxwell Entertainment Business Advice



“A successful life is not about living our dream. It’s not only about God’s dream for us either. A successful life is about God’s dream for others through us. It’s serving.”

~ Mark H. Maxwell


“Whether you are on the creative or business side, in the long run, character always trumps talent.”

~Mark H. Maxwell


“The key to overcoming “stage fright” or the fear of bombing at a live show, is to understand that when you stand on a stage you have the honor of presenting your audience with a gift. You are there to love and serve your audience, not simply to receive their adoration and affirmation. Your voice, musicianship, melody and lyrics make up a beautiful, supernatural creative gift that you are vulnerably serving your audience to offer them joy, hope, perspective, empathy and love -- a gift to transform their hearts and lives that night and beyond. It’s always about the audience and not about you as the artist. Once an artist understands the power of that gift and makes that their primary focus as opposed to finding their identity in the applause, then the spotlight becomes a place of love instead of place of fear with the risk of failure.”

~ Mark H. Maxwell
