“Do it. If you’re thinking about it and you’ve probably taken some steps, then just jump in and do it. The first step is the hardest one but once you start, the momentum of starting is so powerful.” 
Chris Ruggiero hosts a one man variety show where he does things like circus tricks, juggling and magic, all set to modern pop music. Last year, his always-evolving show caught the eye of none other than Ellen Degeneres, who brought him on her show and deemed him “epic.” 
Chris is also the author of "Just Go", a motivational book that encourages people to stop thinking and just start. I talked to him about getting the call from Ellen, how he got into entertaining and his advice for anyone, in any industry, for taking that scary first step.
