Great idea. My book (which is no longer available so I can mention it0 "Making a Living Performing in Restaurants" sold OK. I printed up 100 copies and sold hem all but it took a year to do it. The PDF idea is a lot better than printing them up.
I am surprised at your age! From your posts and the way you answer some questions I really thought you were much older. I assumed that you were in your 40's and worked restaurants for several years your answers and insights are that good.
Well thank you
. I just seem to learn from my mistakes and others quite fast. Even though I am 16 I will have fun when working and doing magic for others, but when it comes down to business it is strictly business and the point of a business is not only about making money but providing the customer with a top quality service that very few others / or no one can provide.
You cannot expect to run a business if you have no idea on how to operate your business properlly
And the same goes with that you cannot expect to know how to run a business, but not provide a good quality service and value for money, because if you cant deliver in your services then don't expect to be eating everyday, because you won't be making enough money for 3 meals a day.
I still have much to learn about magic overall, I do very little kids shows, and are still pondering over to getting into them. I prefer the cooperate and restaurant scene it's so much more open and you have a variety of options over kids in what effects you can do, the presentations that you give and your overall style of entertainment.
In the mean time I work 2 jobs. 1 job at the cinema's which is easy and close to home and the other is restaurant magic, but recently I have taken interest in quitting the cinemas and working on getting another restaurant gig. Hopefully I can pick up another one. . . Only problem is my age is a burden here and there, but I look 18, so i guess that helps a little bit. . .
