...This next sentence is directed towards Paddy. Paddy, if you are reading this, you should know that you can give people a quick bit of info, and you don't have to brag about how much you make. If someone asks how to make money, you can tell them a little bit about it, for they are going to have to search anyway...
Well you should start to learn how to read. I have given advice, and will continue to do so. But when someone just pops up and asks a question that looks for secrets, or gets an answer that he doesn't like so he keeps asking the same question I tell them exactly what I think. Look over this thread at my posts.

paddy Posted: Sat Dec 15, 2007 6:50 am The first thing to do is go see a busker in action, watch them, learn from them. I use hat lines all thru my show, some funny just to plant the idea that I am going to pass the hat. At the end of the show I make my big hat line, this one is very serious, no joking around, I tell the audience that "to be a professional magician has always been my dream, it has now come true. This is how I make my living, so if you had a few moments of happiness drop some bills into the hat. Thank you."
Seems like I answered his question. You, on the other hand asked a question, was answered by several people and then asked the same question again. Remember that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting differnt results.
