Are we talking about street magic ie going up to people and doing tricks for them or are we talking about busking?

Funny story, last night I was talking to someone that I had never met before (until last night, of course), and we got on the subject of me doing magic, and he goes, "Hey, you're the kid who can tie his shoelaces without touching them!" I was pretty impressed with how something like that can spread... considering I had never even seen, nonetheless perform magic for the guy.

I'm 14, and I recommend not doing TRIX until you have routines and patter down perfect, and you can do sleight with your eyes closed.

ive been doing magic for a while, i can do the slights in one hand now.

The answer should be obvious. Busking means getting tips. Getting tips means you have money. Going from pitch to vehicle with people knowing that you have money leads to getting your head bashed in so someone can steal your money.

As I said, busking is too risky for kids.
