MINGLING FOR DOLLARS: THE WALK-AROUND MENTALISM EDGE
Brett Barry has for years been known one of the USA’s busiest corporate mentalists, but specializing in mingling entertainment. In this class Brett will explain the business side advantages of mystery performers differentiating themselves as Mentalists in their city, allowing them to charge far higher fees then local magicians competition. Brett will go over the business side of the importance of speedy follow-up on leads, contacting & following up with booking companies, online leads sites (which sites work best?), destination management companies, and much more. He will go over handling objections (price) and will also tip the app that he uses over the phone to close over 90% of leads, letting the class experience a customer phone call. Brett had a 25 year background in sales prior to becoming a full time performer in 2012.

THE MINGLING APPROACH
Which effects work best for walk-around mentalism? In this class Brett Barry will briefly go over the various effects he brings to a corporate event, why he always wears a suit, HOW he carries his effects, HOW MANY effects he carries, and explain why it is so critical to use a very hard-hitting effect as an opener. Brett will explain his way of approaching groups of people at high-end or corporate events, what he says to break the ice, and why its NOT always a good idea to hand out your business card (even if they ask!). Brett will review how many effects to do for each group, and the techniques he uses to bring people together while mingling to take them from skeptical to stoked. He will also explain how to handle drunk or difficult attendees. Brett will explain his persona, and why it’s important for a mingling mentalist to know their character.

THE BOOK TEST PRIMER
Are you addicted to book tests? In this fun class Mentalist Brett Barry will show you how mingling mentalism + book tests = a super-powerful combination! Brett will explain why it’s usually never wise to BEGIN a strolling set with a book test, but how a book test can have a BIG impact if used well. Brett will go over his preferred handlings of “The Mother Of All Book Tests” (MOABT) pocket edition, flashback books, his own Celebrity Presage creation, and his original handling of Steve Valentine’s “Booked” which he also often uses on stage.

SVENPADS & COIN BENDING & IMPRESSION DEVICES FOR WALK-AROUND
As the originator and creator of the world famous SvenPads line of products, Brett Barry will show you some of the most high-impact ways to use your existing pads for mingling mentalism. Brett will show you powerful ways to use your pads for mind reading and fun revelations, including combing with the Rainbow gimmick. He will also demonstrate how he uses his favorite impression devices (both electronic and non) to add a big wow factor to his mingling mentalism sets. Brett will also take you step by step through his preferred handling and patter using his #1 favorite opening tool, John Sheet’s Quantum Bender.

Supplies needed for class:

1 sharpie marker
1 pad of legal paper
1 blank SvenPad
1 mobile phone
1 small 8x10 art pad
quantum bender (if you own it)
Mother of all Book Tests (MOABT) (if you own it)

Advice from a Real World Performer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2021
Brett Barry is best known for his quality SvenPad products and service. What a lot of people don't know, Brett is a busy mystery performer entertaining in the Real World!

As soon as I was notified of his Business of Walkaround Mentalism course, I believe I was the first to sign up. So far, Brett has given two sessions and I cant wait for the next two. It's definitely more than I expected and in the "Brett Barry style" he gives you so much extra stuff including PDF copies of his PowerPoint presentation.

I'm purposely leaving out details as I want to keep this information to myself! Definitely, money well invested!!!

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 24th, 2021
So far, I’m really enjoying and getting a lot out of the class. So far, it is focusing on the business side and marketing of doing professional mentalism. It really helps me get an idea of how to get gigs, what to perform at gigs, and how to market myself. Looking forward to what else we learn next.

Valuable Information No One is Talking About Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 21st, 2021
I've just completed the second of four weeks with Brett Barry covering the Business of Walk Around Mentalism.

I'll bottom line it...

Fantastic course!

Brett holds nothing back (that I can tell). He's extremely thorough in his presentation. I feel as if he's laying out exactly what he does and how he does it.

It's not easy to communicate how you run your business in such a way that someone would feel like they could step into the roll themselves. But, that's exactly how I feel.

And he took the time going over a powerful source of potential business, that I've NEVER heard covered so well before.

Others have mentioned this source... but I've never heard anyone tell you exactly what you should do to engage them in any way like what Brett has done.

Plus, he tells you exactly what he carries... and the "right" approach when engaging a small group at a mingling function.

He even GIVES you his invoices, proposals and contracts as templates... Not to mention, is very open about what he charges.

In short, everything you need to successfully acquire and service the gig.

Looking forward to the balance of the class, but if I missed the next two sessions (I won't) - I'd still feel like I got more than my money's worth.

Brett Barry brings it all in this class. He lays out in great detail the business side of walk around mentalism as well as the performance side and some mentalism routines.

The class is delivered in a way that is clear, well organized and easy to understand.

Huge value for the time and money invested!

This definitely has me making some significant changes to my offerings and approaches.

Thanks Brett Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 1st, 2021
This was my first formal magic class, however if they are all like this, I have been missing out.
Brett’s class was very helpful & informative; with insights on the performing as well as the business side of magic. Brett himself was willing to answer questions & deviate from the script (which was well prepared), and to follow up with further info via email on your individual concerns.
He really seemed to look as you as a paying customer (in a good way) rather than meerly an audience, and made sure that you got value for your money.

Amazing Learning Experience! Highly Recommended! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 23rd, 2021
After reading all the 5 Stars Reviews about Brett Barry's online course: "The Business of Walk Around Mentalism", I can just confirm all the positive feedback that has been shared by the other students who were part of this first cohort.

During these 4 sessions Brett has been very generous to share a wealth of knowledge and experience that will surely help me level up my game as a full-time working pro.

I've known Brett for a few years (I'm also a big fan of his Sven Pad creations) and I can say that Brett has always inspired me by his professionalism, positive energy and integrity.

When I found about Penguin Magic School and saw that Brett was one of the teachers, I instantly signed up for his course; and it was definitely well worth the investment and waking up in the middle of the night to attend the class.

Brett is non only an innovator in our industry and one of the World's Best Mentalists and busiest working pro, but he is also an amazing teacher, inspiring leader and overall a great human being.
As a true gentleman, he made me feel very comfortable in a class where I was the only female student.

So overall I'm very grateful for this outstanding learning opportunity.
Thank you very much Brett for your time, kindness and generosity. It's been an honor and privilege learning from you!
And also thank you to Penguin Magic School for bringing this new learning format to the magic community! I love it so much!

One last thing: Please bring Brett Barry back for more!!!

Very Informative - Lots of Information Report this review

Brett told us everything. He was very open to telling the "secrets" of the professional walk-around mentalist. It was a great class and highly recommended. Worth every penny.

Incredible Value Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2021
This course isn't even over yet and it's already worth five times it's weight in GOLD!

Brett has been incredibly generous with his time and information. He holds nothing back and goes into details about negotiating fees and rates that most other performers would not. He even let us listen in on an actual phone call with a prospective client.

He's not only shown us everything he brings with him to a strolling gig but also WHY. He even had one of the greatest minds in mentalism join the class as a special guest to share some of their insights.

I can't overstate what an incredible value this course has been. If Brett offers it again jump on the opportunity! You won't be disappointed.

Exceptional Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2021
Brett Barry’s class exceeded my expectations more than I could have anticipated. I’ve been a full-time working pro for years and have taken a lot of magic business classes and workshops in the past… Brett’s FIRST class beat them all by a long shot. So much valuable information that could benefit anyone from a complete beginner trying to start making money, to the working pro who wants to increase their volume of clients.

Every class since has successfully continued to build on itself adding more and more to the overall picture. Brett brings a freshness back to the business side of magic, something a lot of us could benefit from. His approach is classy, modern, engaging and warm. He’s given me a new perspective on how to think about the business of what we do and one that brings it into the 21st century. On top of all that, there are so many performance gems being dropped constantly. I have been inspired by his teachings and so glad I took the class.
