Hiya Gang!

I haven't been posting in this section as much as I have in the past, simply because I've found that most everyone here has a solid knowledge base with regards to the working gigs. A great thing! But, just in case you have some questions or thoughts, I thought I'd share with you a list of Essays I've written over at some other sites that are focused more on the working aspect of our wonderful art.

Please bear in mind, these are simply ideas that I have found have worked for me! Results may vary, lol...

Rates FAQ 2.0 (how much to charge) by Ja......Essay #1
The single most important thing you can do... Essay #2
How many tricks should you learn? Essay #3
Tips or Wage? ~more thoughts from JDG /Essay #4
How to design a business card~ Essay #5 by JDG
Who I am~ Magic Friday ~ by Jamie D. Grant
Developing Your Sets - Essay #6 from JDG
Do you need a stage show? Essay #7 by JDG
Crushing the Haters! Essay #8 by Jamie D. Grant
How I Introduce Custom Decks #9 by Jamie D. Grant


Who the heck am I? Check out the podcast:

Jamie knows his stuff and offers some good information. The beginning to intermediate worker would do well to study his articles.

Thanks for the kind comments guys! That means a lot- truly.

This is all prep work for a book I'm writing called, "The Approach", which will outline how I approach all things magic.

My best,

jamie

Good one. I agree it will go away. It takes a little longer for it to go away when performing for your peers though.

The last part sounds a lot like Stuart Smalley... "I'm good enough. I'm smart enough. And doggone it, people like me." Smile
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

These are awesome! I've read a few of them multiple times. I like 'how to crush haters' -- do you really say "lol" in real life!? Smile

Here's #10 (Deflecting Thoughts and False Memories).

I personally find this one of the most important skills I have: the ability to innocently ask a question...

And I realize this is a link outside the Café, but it seems to work well. The Café gets Magic Friday, and I'll link the Walkaround Essays here in this thread!

Thank for reading!
