Turn Magic Into Money: The 7 Closely Guarded Secrets To Becoming A Professional Magician Reviews
I have an 8 year old who is set on becoming a magician. Instead of the old "study hard, get a real job like me and forget about your dream" I was curious to see what books are out there about turning someone's passion into a successful business. Chris Burton's book was the perfect fit. The author speaks openly about his humble beginnings and we have already implemented one of his suggestions and have created business cards for our son to hand out when he is doing magic tricks somewhere. I also liked learning how understanding what kind of audience one wants to perform for is a critical understanding to have in terms in how and where to promote. Through this book I have come to appreciate that one has to be an entrepreneur as well as a magician. Mr. Burton also gives detailed information on how to find the market one wants to perform in and how to go about building one's brand successfully. I also enjoyed learning how the process of coming to understand what to charge for events and shows. After reading this book I am confident that if our 8 year old continues to be passionate about becoming a magician, he can also become a well paid magician. If you happen to love magic and are thinking of going pro, this book will be an invaluable resource for you and I highly recommend it.
Chris Burton really has a magical gift, not just because he is good at doing card tricks, but because he reveals the business secrets behind the magic that can take someone from being an hobby magician to a real pro. I used to do a fair amount of magic when I was a professional clown in my teenage years, and I have seen first hand some of Chris's magic and it is first class. In his book he talks about the cues that one needs to listen for when you are performing to know if you can make a business out of it. These sayings from your audience will let you know that you can do this for money: "Can I hire you?" and "Do you have a business card?" If you are not hearing these sayings then you need more practice. Being good at magic and being paid to do it are two different things, and Chris really tells you have to accomplish both in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has a passion to create magic!
This book is insulting. It is so basic that s little common sense would give you more info then this book. If your a teenager and know zero about business then buy otherwise leave it alone.
Amazing book!! My son can't put it down!
