Joyce Morrison - Live TPG 009

Joyce Morrison is a Texas native, who has hung her hat on entrepreneurship and building multiple businesses across multiple industries, being a community philanthropist for children, all while running the Texas International pageant.

This is our first episode with Joyce which was recorded in March of 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic shortly shut down the country and this podcast was shelved for the time being. As the country began to open back up, we pivoted the show to a Youtube show vs a podcast and converted this conversation to a video.

Grant Price - Live TPG 008

Grant Price is a mentalist & magician who provides mind-blowing entertainment for private events. Grant Price has been an entertainer all his life. His biggest pet peeve is entertainment that is impersonal, offensive, or condescending. He has witnessed too many performers with an air of “I’m smart, I’m cool, just shut up and watch me.” This isn’t the demeanor of quality entertainment.
S’more Magic Tickets!
