Little by little--that's my advice. Don't put too much pressure on yourself to make a full income by magic right away...that's almost impossible. But DO start taking steps RIGHT NOW. Work on getting your first gig, putting up a website, developing a walk-around set, a stage set. And then, because you're going slowly, by the time you have enough gigs to support yourself, you'll be a top-notch performer, too!

Get paid. Once you have received money for performing magic, you can call yourself a professional.
