And for those of you who pick up a copy, I just did the gig (last night) that I mention in the final chapter!

Walk Around magic: make people laugh, send people wonder, make new friends, meet the most amazing people in the world, get paid, and then watch one of the greatest bands on earth! Booyah!!

Image

With Sarah MacLachlan (as a band walks onto the stage behind us)

Image

The band? The Red Hot Chili Peppers

Image

After doing my 2 and a half hours, I was "off the clock" and told to just hang out and party. Amazing times at the front of the stage.

And, for all you new Workers out there, here's an interesting photo. Because the first hour and a half, I was performing magic on the shuttle. There was not enough parking near the house, so they had guests park at a nearby school and shuttled them in a Limo Bus to the party. It was the perfect place to make introductions, show some magic, and get to know everyone.

Image


Amazing times. I can't wait for all of you to join me.

Your pal,

jamie

I just took the plunge. The first 12 chapters were insightful and I believe this book will provide me with so many opportunities for reflection and will definitely help me improve in all areas of the art (if I put in the time of course).

Now, Jamie, I have to hope that your spell and grammar check was on the fritz so I can have plenty of opportunities to win your contest Smile

So, I had kinda lost track of this topic, (You changed the title, right?), and I was thinking, "I wonder when Jamie will be releasing that book he told us about. Seems like his goal was to finish it around now." So I got to looking and whoa! it's done and you're selling draft copies! Just put in my order for a draft copy! If I get lucky and it arrives before Magic Live! I'll bring it with me and have you sign it.

Good job Jamie! Can't wait.

Finally was able to get a chance to read the first 50 pages Jamie so graciously shared with us for free. First I will say that this was very easy to read. Jamie has a great writing style that does not put you to sleep. The content was relative and solid in that if you are looking to discover how to enter the world of a paid magician this definitely would be a great place to start. Jamie lays out exercises, things to keep track of and great suggestions on his ideas and trick sets, from his own experiences, that have worked for him. The one chapter also lays out ideas on business cards which makes a lot of sense.

After reading this, I feel that the rest of the book should be a great resource and all will find something useful written in it as Jamie shares his real world experiences in the adventure of becoming a paid-professional magician.

Well Done Jamie!

I'm eagerly awaiting my copy of the full work to appear in my mailbox. So much so, I check it on an hourly basis.

I cant wait to get this book. I wish it would arrive by Friday or Saturday so I could start reading it over the weekend. School will be starting soon and I will be back to reading all my nursing books again. Leaving me very little time for reading The Approach let alone performing magic in general Smile

Thanks, gang!

This is super exciting! And I shipped out every single one of them this morning!

The only thing I ask is that we keep Chapter 32 (The Big Secret), well, a secret, lol. I personally think that, for Workers, this will really be an advantage that I've never seen before. What's funny is that it's in the picture (above) with Sarah Maclachlan.

And don't forget, for every 10 grammar and spelling mistakes you find, you'll get an entry into a contest to win any one of our products! Just send me an email ( SendWonder@gmail.com ) with the subject title "10".

Okay! Now we wait!

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous, lol.

I just received my book in the mail! (I live in Nor Calif.) So many chapters, so little hours in the weekend. No wonder it costs Jamie a bit to mail - pretty hefty!

Is the big secret something to do with not wearing a vest under an open necked shirt? ;-)

Hi Knobz1,

I must have lucked out with the mail routing on this one - hope you get yours tomorrow. At least you know, it'll be soon!
Have a fantastic week -
