I really don't care about the money the joy of performing magic for the rest of my life would make me happy.


No one has said anything discouraging to you. If you think they have maybe you should give up magic now. The comments have been between coolsnail and fallingblood. What I have seen is people giving you some DVDs to check into taht will help you.

I will tell you that from my experience, and the experience of every pro I have ever met, it is NOT the effect that you perform that makes you the money. It is the PERFORMANCE of the effect. Look at Gazzo in his whole street routine, every trick is very simple and easy to do, yet when he performs them they are wonderful flights of magic.

Look at Penn and Teller with their version of cups and balls. Not only do they use transparent cups and they do the whole effect so everyone can see the secret. They perform it so well that no one can tell you what the secret is after they are done. It is always the PERFORMANCE. Remember that and you will earn your living with magic.


I agree with the middle paragraph and have already interalized that message.
