Depends on whether or not I perform it at appropriate times or not.

Weakness when it comes to spending money and time; strength when it comes to enjoyment, education, and joy of entertaining.

Strength when it comes to helping others on the Café. Weakness when it comes to paperwork.

^ paperwork? Do you mean creating invoices for clients? IMHO, magic is not an area typically associated with much paperwork.

Natanel, you must not be a full time magician. It require more than invoices. I'll give you just a few examples: Bookkeeping, contracts, bills regarding business (phone lines, Yellow Pages, website secure names), daily planner, proposals, bank accounts, assumed name, government taxes, marketing, EIN, fax, solicitation mail, etc.

I remember Mark Wilson saying in a lecture that he spent 80% of his time marketing.

I recognized magic as my strength and is why I made the decision to become full time. My weakness is working a 40-hour a week job for a boss I don’t like.

haha That is somewhat true (I am a student), and my affairs are probably not nearly as in order as they should be. Gigs tend to consist for me of 3 things: an invoice, a check and a thank you note. I like the ease of this, but I know I really do need to start worrying about taxes and all that fun stuff.

Strength - I have not yet encountered a female in my day profession who also is a practicing magician!

My weakness, but not my only one I think. I don’t know which is my greatest weakness, Redheads perhaps.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

The two sides of the same coin: magic is both my strength and my weakness.

Strength: for it taught me what's behind appearance and how appearances are structured.

Weakness: for it is my escape from a reality which boundaries are too often too close.
Magic is the art of proving impossible things in parallel dimensions that can't be reached
