Santa Kenny Hydock

In our first year as Santa and Mrs, we far exceeded our expectations. Not sure of the final tally, but we have had several $1000 or more days. Most parties and events told us that we were the best ever. Many asking about booking us next season.

You really have helped us so much! I look forward to learning and implementing more of your information in 2017 that I just didn’t have time for in 2016. Happy New Year!”

What Santa’s are saying about our Santa Claus School…

Santa Ed,
Thanks so much for the great Santa business advice, tonight. Really enjoyed the session and see much value in each of the classes that you will make available in March, April, and May. I took your classes last year and highly recommend them and you.
Thanks, Santa Andy Stratton

“Great class tonight Santa Ed. What an honor to be taught by such a great Santa. Thanks again I am glad I was home tonight and not on the road. I was able to learn some good stuff  Thanks again.”
Santa Chuck Hudgins

Santa Ed,
Your webinar tonight was very well done and you managed to stay on topic very well.  Your outline was very concise and I picked up several good tips.
    I have followed your advice and Larry Hersberger at Kissing Tree Studio is helping me create a new website for cliffkringle.com and we will be adding an online store for all of the products I have for sale.
     Speaking of Larry, thank you again for the wonderful plug you gave him and me during the webinar.  I really appreciate it, and I will be sure to tell him as well.
     You did a great job and I am glad I signed in tonight.
Blessings, Santa Cliff Snider

Thank you for another fine presentation. As you recall I participated in your webinar series last Spring and got so much out of them that really helped me during the past year and holiday season. Again tonight, though time restricted for each topic, I picked up several new ideas and bits of information for my Santa business. And I am one who knows first-hand how you will expand each of the topics in your upcoming webinars.
     As always, I look forward to continued relations and necessary counselings with you.
Mel Koch, Santa Quincy

Thank you. I feel I picked up some useful ideas. I have been doing this for two seasons now. I am a part of the group called Lone Star Santa’s here in Texas. I personally am located in Fort Worth. Thank you for your enthusiastic example as well as encouragement to be myself. I have had a great time with kids, both young and old.

What Santas & Mrs. Clauses Have to Say

As a brand new Santa I was both excited and a bit overwhelmed at the coming season and quickly realized there was a LOT that I didn't know and needed to learn about. So many resources, but where to start?

While Googling I came across Ed Taylor’s session “101 Questions for Santa Claus with Answers”.


Santa Ed thank you for sharing all of the information you share… you have given me answers to questions I didn’t even think to ask… THANK YOU!
Dale Dimas
From San Jose, CA, USA
I appreciate your concern and desire to help all Santa’s to learn and share about being the best Santa possible.

Your lessons are well done and provide excellent insight into lots of various opportunities for the Santa and Mrs Claus community.

Thank You for your concern, desire, and professionalism.
Santa Duffy
Suffolk, VA, USA
Your influence on my life has been transformative, and probably have had as much positive impact as any other person in my adult life.

Between Hello Santa, the lessons you offered, the generous time you've given for all sorts of advice both within and outside of being Santa, directing me toward a gig that both consumes all of my Santa work *and* will likely become where I will live in a couple of years....

Brother, what haven't you done? Oh, also thanks!
Michael Sheinbaum
King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA
The information you provide is insightful and very helpful.

It's reassuring that you have Santa experience and know the kind of issues we should be aware of.

And the way you deliver the information is like talking with a friend. A friend with knowledge, experience, and a direct approach.

Thank you Santa Ed for all you do in the Santa community.
