listen man, sounds to me like you know enough about what your doing to make money. Dont think you hafta know 93040 magic tricks in order to quallify. When i got my first gig, i had only done street magic once in my life, and that was back when i was 12. I never got outa magic, i just didnt do it for people (other than familly and friends). Well it just so happened that one day (5yrs later) i was playing cards with my friend when another friend who worked there saw me and asked me to do a trick for his manager. I was a little caught off gaurd by it, but i didnt mind. After i did a trick he liked it so much he wanted me to show the owner. Once the owner came out and saw a trick he wanted to see more, so i started making up stuff on the spot and kinda went with the flow.. i loved it! by the end of the night, i had a crowd of about 15-20 people, some cash, and a new job on sat. from 1-3 getting paid 75 and hour.. plus tips (oh ya, and i had no previous experience, so i guess that woulda made me a beginner). Obviously this is what got me doing magic for people (i now make a lot more than 75 on sat
). However, im a lucky case where magic found me and i didnt have to do much, so dont be upset if you dont get a lot of money right off the bat, be happy with what you get, even if you hafta start off working free and work your way up! Anyway, dont listen to people that are saying you cant do it.. my only advise is whatever tricks you do, make sure you can do them in ur sleep and JUST AS IMPORTANT.. HAVE A GOOD PATTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
