Some of us hide out..
BUILDING OUR DREAMS
HOW DO SENSITIVE SOULS...
Take the LID OFF THE BOX of life... and keep it off?
1MAN’S VISION - 3 MAIN STRANDS
An experiment into taking the LID OFF THE BOX - of life...
MAKING CRAZY WORK
Who decides what is crazy and will not work? Why does their 'opinion' influence us? What if we dare follow our heart call and take our own path? What if we bypass what is expected of us, what our upbringing and circumstance dictate? What if we risk all to step? What will we see?
We may see folk MAKING (what some would say is) CRAZY... WORK!
Our Crazy Work embraces music creation and performance in NICKSTIR & CO, home to English singer songwriter and designer NICKSTIR (and friends).
Our Crazy Work includes recruiting entertaining and inspiring a global TRYB of Top Secret Special Agents. A DREAMTRYB, whose mission is Free NICKSTIR, release FIG and change our world for good. It's a MI6 James Bond meets Marvel - with music!
Our Crazy Work addresses peak performance psychology - for the rest of us. It's about freedom to be the amazing folk we all are, and not take ourselves too seriously...
THERE'S ALWAYS A WAY
...it just takes some of us longer than others!
'Nicky, your life has been a blo**y disaster, but we love you anyway...' so pronounced my late Aunt-in-Law as she sat beside me at dinner.
Comedy is truth and pain. There is treasure in misadventure, a comedy writer's goldmine in my journey. For example, I've had a problem with my name 'Nicky' Slater, with my identity, stature and with 'real life' generally. Therapy and Self Help courses cost thousands. Alternative 'Nick Name' personas developed to enable my search for freedom and the courage to step.
My parents were Ice Dance Champions - so I was too, entertaining on TV, in arenas,' ice rinks and theatres. Trouble is I never chose ice. There was more. Busking in Ipswich, England, in the rain, for £1.05. Ha. So now finally it's time for me to stop hiding out and take the Lid Off The Box of my life to be Making Crazy Work!

Hi, I'm Nicholas (Nicky) Slater a British immigrant to Canada (2016). At heart, I love to entertain. Joy for me is to see you laugh, touch your soul, enrich your life.
Alongside me is my wife and Lid Off The Box Co-Founder Christiane whose beauty, imagery, wisdom and patience (with me) greatly enrich our offering. Now I've a Champion CV, but truth is I self-sabotaged much of my life, held by fear, perfectionism, foibles and my lack of normal upbringing.
I love to encourage people and see them break free from lies that bind them. I have been trying to break free of those lies all my life. Along with thousands of coaching hours I had to be a World No1 (I got to fifth) I have deeply studied this subject. Lid Off The Box draws on this fuelled by my goal of re-inventing myself that I now pursue.
DEFINITION OF INSANITY
Doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results - unless you're practising... NMS
We are a fledgling start up and I've always envisioned an Entertainment Factory. I've been 'it' for twenty years! I have wasted much and I've also learnt and created songs, stories and characters I love. So it's time to breakthrough, change the game.
It's time to TRY plan B. The plan, gain resource to work with an A Team to address technical and admin so I can focus on music, books and The Big Show seeing life.
DREAMTRYB is the key. A group of folk that support us and seek to empower, encourage and inspire each other as we take the LID OFF THE BOX of life and MAKE CRAZY WORK.
