    Mike Wieder‘s book “Be The Difference Maker” is a must read for all DJ’s and entertainers alike. I read it twice immediately and then I noticed Mike’s phone number was at the end of the book. Who puts their phone number at the end of a book? I called, who calls? He took time out of his busy schedule to talk with me. He’s a standup guy, an industry leader, trendsetter, unique individual and a wonderful storyteller. Buy this book if you are reading this review. It’s full of most valuable insights and inspiration. Powerful quotes, stories of failures and humble learning experiences, real life testimonials and thought evoking creative ideas and questions that will help you improve your skill set. Mike has 35 years experience! If the book is this fun to read.... one can only imagine his events.

    Those that know Mike Wieder well, know that he is full of anecdotes, references, and examples for almost any situation. In other words, the man has many stories…and he’s not afraid to use them. For over three decades, Mr. Wieder has been an industry leader, and mentor, that many event entertainers turn to for advice; from technical support to performance guidance. A veteran contrarian, Mike is known for his outside-the-box ideas (a box which he admittedly wants no part of), as well as his penchant for adjustment. For those that don’t have the fortune of personally knowing Mike Wieder, he’s luckily compiled a good portion of his expertise into his book, “Be The Difference Maker: A Blueprint for Transforming DJs into Entertainers”. Regardless of your familiarity with Mike, after any interaction with him, whether it’s a face-to-face conversation, or simply reading an excerpt from his book, the sentiment that you’ll be left with will simply be, “step your game up!”. From outlining that... More > “experience” and “professional” aren’t the powerful words that we assume them to be, to his notions of “talent trumps toys” and “experience vs. the right type of experience” Wieder’s book stands out amongst many others as it compiles a great deal of valuable information and yet makes for an easy read. Mike’s light-hearted and humorous approach to life is evident on the pages of “Be The Difference Maker” as he takes the reader on a reflective journey of his thirty-five plus year career as an event entertainer, while also planting seeds of encouragement and ideation. While outlining things that you can, and things that you absolutely shouldn’t, say at events, to jokes about his personal negative experiences with Bruce Willis movies, and guidelines of handling a variety of circumstances, “Be The Difference Maker: A Blueprint for Transforming DJs into Entertainers” entertains from cover to cover, and subtly provides a multitude of tips and action steps that will have you reaching back on the shelf to read the book over and over again…until you realize that it’s best to just have multiple copies so that you can always have one on you for reference. -Artem Lomaz Award-Winning Entertainment Provider/Performer Founder/Principal Event Host, NinetyThree Entertainment< Less

    I have been a businessman in the Entertainment Industry for over 20 years as a DJ/MC. In 1997 after relocating from Tennessee to New Jersey I officially launched my entertainment business with very little knowledge of the business itself. As I began my journey into the entertainment world I realized that I still had a lot to learn about entertaining audiences. Fortunately I lived in New Jersey where I was able to network with some of the best DJ's & MC's in the country. By attending the DJ EXPO in Atlantic City every summer I had access to all of the tools needed to make my business grow! It was at the DJ EXPO where I had the privilege to meet Mike Wieder for the first time! Mike's unique entertainment style, quick wit and his ability to establish a rapport with virtually anyone that he met made him an instant mentor of mine. Over the years Mike and I become close friends and worked events together. When Mike shared his desire to put his life experiences in the entertainment...
