    Nervous to Ask for Shows

    I find that I'm relly nervous to make the "Cold Call" to ask for show bookings. I ask at my shows all of the time, and I'm always turned down. People just keep giving out excuses as to why they are unable to host their own show. I even try to bribe people with 50% off a piece of stoneware if...
