Firstly, a question: Aleve or Tylenol?

Secondly, the results: I did 7 hours today and grossed around $400. It was a great time. I really enjoyed it. I have another 5 hours tomorrow and hope to pay off my inventory by the end of the day so that my next outing will be pure profit. Thanks for all the help, guys.

I had absolutely no training besides Don's DVD, our correspondence, and the information shared here by you all. I used Don's pitch for both the deck and the worm. I'm a performer by trade, so I used artistic license here and there, but it was all based on Don's material. Thanks Don.

Congrats, Jeff, on your success -- which was really based on your prep and hard work. You worked out all the kinks (or most of them anyway) BEFORE you hit the floor, and it showed in your gross.

BTW, I agree on the Tylenol -- 6-7 hours on your feet is tough. Just got back from a 9 am to 6 pm show myself. But if you rub those footsies with a few twenties, they'll feel better fast! Smile

Seriously, I invested in a roll-up 1' x 2' outdoor carpet that I bought at a sporting goods store for about $5. It's supposed to be for the entrance to a camping tent or something. But on concrete or asphalt (for street fairs) or hard gym floors (Xmas bazaars), it really helps to cushion the feet. And when I'm done, it just rolls up into my carry cart. Well worth it! SETH

Hey guys, thanks.

Bill, I was thinking the same thing, ha. Good for you, bad for me!

Seth, I broke bout 6 IT in the first few hours. Worked out of the apron and did some fast switches, nobody noticed. Then the rest of the day, I worked from the same IT for hours on end. I was still pretty vanilla with my presentation, but it made the IT go the distance. I do a basic "around me hands, up my arms, around a pencil, in and out of cups" and then I do some of the table cup moves. Everyone loved the kiss, and that was all I needed.

Yep, the kiss move is the one that kills. For that reason, I repeat it at the end of the routine, it's a great finale. And it really sells the worms. SETH

I take Aleve, it works like magic...

This was my most profitable pitch yet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KD2whMFjXCs

Good Luck!

Hey Fitz,

Do you have to pay for Aleve ever again in your life?
