Great news for all the Walk Around and Strolling Magicians working in Boston and throughout Mass. (R.I. N.H.). It seems there is plenty of work for everyone. The December Calendar is full and running into January. Some businesses like celebrating the Holidays in January. I imagine December can be too hectic for some, and the turnout is likely higher in January.
As for Holiday related material, I don’t use any. I don’t feel a demand or need for it. Of course if something is requested in advance, I will always accommodate. A few twists on most anything can change the theme.
The main theme is fun, laughter and amazement. Without that I’d be dead in the water. Hopefully without sounding like an ego maniac, I achieve this goal consistently…time after time. (Of course that is the case with many others.) My only secret is I never take a job if I have the slightest hint, I might not be able to provide what my “Client” is looking for.
In everything we do, it pays to listen. Most prefer to talk and bluster. (As I’m doing now.) But you will learn very little from yourself. Most importantly, when someone’s reputation is on the line, (think event planner) this is more valuable than the money. You can never afford to get it wrong.
Let me leave this, with a wish that everyone has a pleasurable Holiday season and the greatest of health in the New Year.
