  • Listening to this last chapter with Ken Kelly as I’m inflating about 300, 260’s as part of some balloon decor that I’m creating for delivery and set up tomorrow, brings to mind how Ken & I have come full circle! I think of Ken & Julian as my personal mentors (they don’t know this). Through their workshops, Facebook pages and spending time with them here in Tennessee a few years ago while they attended Kidabra, especially their amazing advice, taught me that I can do whatever I put my mind to – no matter how old (or young), you are. I went from face painter, clown, balloon twister, children’s entertainer with magic and finally, as a professional balloon decorator – I obtained my CBA last October. It’s funny that as I drifted away from kid’s entertainment, once again Ken is put in my path! Thank you Zivi for producing this podcast. I always look forward to it and try to listen as soon as it comes out. Best of luck for all of your endeavors!~

    • Hello Christine Maentz, CBA.
