Lid Off The Box Entertainment has a lifetime of Back Story to bring us to launch in 2020.
Defining our why, what and how to start our journey has been a mountain to climb and an EPIC quest... Although it's heartbeat has been around for decades.
So here we are... And it's mostly been 'my processing' - ' my stuff' I can't blame Christiane for the time it's taken, the searching and the angst. I have been responsible.
Somehow I'm coming out of the tunnel. Time to go for it.
For us, as a couple, I feel this is a win in and of itself. It's amazing to be here and we hope you will be encouraged by what you see.
It's all about love, laughter, and freedom for the rest of us!
There is another level to this rabbit hole should you be interested. There is a DREAM ON - FULL DISCLOSURE of 'my' motivators you may find interesting. It's the dinner party 'What do you do?' long answer. It's all about 'us.'
Picture above? I was our Chief facing their Chief on this Fijian Island. And apparently one of the village young ladies quite fancied me buying her! 'Bula bula!'

LID OFF THE BOX ENTERTAINMENT
Why do this?
Top coaches repeat this question.
It's about finding essence, purpose. It's about the heart of the matter and (N) I have spent many hundreds of hours working on purpose statements...
It was a search for freedom.
Here's where we've got to...
freedom - for the rest of us...
To be prodigious producers of brilliant, profitable, entertainment...
music - comedy - breakthrough edutainment
Partner to fuel and share...
build a DREAMTRYB
build business partnerships
Taking the LID OFF THE BOX of our lives risking all to...
Inspire love, laughter and freedom
Obey a call
Celebrate DREAMTRYB breakthroughs
This is about taking the LID OFF THE BOX of our lives and MAKING CRAZY WORK
It's about FREEDOM to dare to be who we feel called to be... We call it.
FREEDOM - FOR THE REST OF US
We risk all to pursue this venture.
We dare to be looking foolish in the world's eyes. We dare to stand for good - and learn to deal with the bullies that seek acquiescence. We seek to make a positive difference.
How to join the dots of work done over years with integrity, honesty and power. What's the story? Link in tech. And things constantly devolve and grow.
So here we are - Summer 2020 - at Base Camp.
THE REST OF US...
- us sensitive souls that pick up feelings
- us rebels hiding a cause
- those of us with a closed down dream
- those of us who need more courage
- those of us who need breakthroughs
- those of us who can rationalise why not
- those of us who've been told we can't
- those of us who've been told we won't
- those of us who know it's too late
- those of us who...need encouragement
- those of us who want to free their warrior heart
- those of us fighting the battle for the mind
- those of us who want a community, a tribe
- those of us who seek purpose and meaning
- those of us who want to perform - as Olympians
To inspire love, laughter and freedom
LID OFF THE BOX is about breakthroughs and identity. An EPIC story has grown around this theme.
N: In my search for that 'real me' identity, I've been held back by my fears and scripts seeking freedom all my life.
This angst has fueled our stories, music, characters and comedy.
To free NICKSTIR
The Mission: NICKSTIR fronting a fabulous arena show of his songs.
He has blown the doors off fear and created EPIC releasing FIG.
We all have inner NICKSTIRS.
Taking the LID OFF THE BOX of life and freeing them up our mission.
To be storytellers
Because stories make a difference to culture, go deep, live on.
Christiane: I see glimpses of Nicky's brilliance - see his grandiose schemes develop - laugh at his songs and have see him broken, meltdown, get up and grow.
And with our miscarriages, with Jon Freddy stillborn, with our journey, with my background being given up for adoption. With our journey in marriage, life, faith and work experience and now, me finally feeling able to work alongside him...
I think we have a story here.
I believe in his 'free Inner NICKSTIRS' concept and bottom line...
I love when I see his 'selfless heart' and look forward to seeing my husband fly free.
To obey a call...
Was it God or someone driving past at 6 am those Brighton mornings I heard the voice? Like a Bill Cosby comedy of old when God called in.
'Set people free from those lies that bind them' and on another occasion 'the magic's in the music.'
To see abundance...
( a bun dance!)
N: Money has been a big deal. It is a big deal. Too big a deal sometimes. Managing detail of resource effectively is also scary and a challenge for a non admin rebel. Thankfully Christiane does that really well!
Lies that held me include: 'You can't have it, you're not worthy, it is for someone else. You'll be arrogant if you get it. People won't like you when you've riches. You are rich now - so you don't need it! Stay with what you know. Play small... Hide out. Etc etc.
Yet my heart has always been in creating something of substance. I've managed and dealt with multi million dollar budgets. Big numbers don't scare me. I grew up competing around the world. A global view is natural for me. I'm ready now.
So I stand to see a huge breakthrough here in finance and resources of team. DREAMTRYB is core and we will learn how to get investment and step!
So breakthrough then - be OK with prosperity - GIVE... and see abundance flow. And don't get too hooked on it. I like 'a bun dance' to keep perspective!
And we will give 10% of pre tax profit to initiatives promoting the arts of debate, listening and understanding. And we'll re-invest to grow!
To be seeing great people enjoying breakthroughs in our DREAMTRYB
It's about building a community where dreams and breakthroughs are encouraged, in a safe space, without judgement.
It's about DREAMTRYB Special Agents (DSAs) gaining insights and training to empower dreams, breakthroughs, peak performance and laughter.
Free NICKSTIR, release FIG and change our world for good is our live mission to challenge us and fuel the fire.
