What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The pricing is made up of what type of a show that you want, how long you want me to be there and how far in the future the show is. Call and we will discuss the details.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Magic is by definition a profession in that you are always educating yourself.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was four years old, my parents took me to Circus Circus in Reno. There were a bunch of clowns there. One day, the head clown Ravioli, put a sponge ball into my hand and one into his. His "magically" moved to my hand. I was hooked. My sister got in good with them by starting to help face paint when my parents took us out there (we lived in Modesto at the time). She was taught how to do the trick but I was not. My parents bought me several magic tricks and encouraging me to read, they bought me Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic. The sponge ball trick was in there. I read about all of the other tricks in there except for that one. Something inside me didn't want to know how it was done.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That not all of us are here to perform for children. Magic is just as much for adults (with the right magician) as it is for children and even more so sometimes.
