Giving Thanks

The True Meaning of the Day

As with many holidays the true meaning of this day often gets lost. Luckily Thanksgiving gives us the definition right in the name. Today I would like to give thanks.

I am so lucky

I am incredibly lucky to be able to make a living doing what I love to do. I sometimes think about what I would do if I couldn’t perform anymore and I always get the same answer, “I have no idea!” I am only able to do what I do because of you, my friends, my family, my clients, and my audience. Thank you so much for your support over the last year. It means more to me than you could ever imagine.

I’m Customizing my magic for Clients, why aren’t other magicians?

I guess you don’t have to work hard

I was working part of a multi-day event with a spy theme and there were other magicians working the other days. One of the staff said, “You are the only magician doing anything spy related.” And I was, as the British say, “gobsmacked.” Custom scripting was not requested by the client but when a client has such a clearly defined theme, I think to myself, “Why wouldn’t I customize my script?”

Yeah, I’m that guy

Yes, as a kid I once reminded the teacher that she had forgotten to give us the assignment she said she was going to give us. The ridicule I faced from my classmates made me never do that again. But, I had a work ethic installed in me at an early age by my Father. He said, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” It’s something I’ve always believed in.

I don’t usually use this space to critique other performers but it just made me wonder, “Why wouldn’t they customize their scripts?” Then I watched one of the other performers and it hit me, he doesn’t customize his scripts to be about the event, the theme, or the message, because his show is all about HIM.

I know about me, Let’s get to know you

My self esteem is pretty good. After more than 20 years on stage getting applause and laughter, I’m all good with myself. So, my show doesn’t need to be about me. It can be about you, your goals, your event, and your message. I have a genuine interest in people and what it is they do in their work and hobbies. I often ask people about what they do and they say, “Oh, it’s boring.” I’ve never found that to be true. I’ve always found that things are as interesting or as boring as one makes them.

Let’s Make it About You

Any place you have people gathered where information needs to go from one person to a group of people, I can help. Are you holding a sales meeting with your staff and don’t want to do another Power Point Presentation? Let me take the same information and present it with magic and comedy! Are you hosting some clients after a big day at the trade show? I can entertain them and inform them at the same time as to why they should continue to do business with you. Do you want to stand out at the next trade show? Imagine aisle blocking traffic clambering to learn about your product or service.

Is it for you?

Are you doing one of the above events? Are you doing something crazy and want to know if it’ll work? Fill out this quick contact form for a free phone consultation of what I can do for you.
