If anybody is struggling, I’d like to encourage you and give you some hope.

I was a successful touring comedy magician. I was doing 150+ shows per year, making good money. Then covid hit and crushed me.

I decided I wasn’t going to take it lying down. I had no alternative for income so I came up with an idea. I had nothing to lose. So, I gave it a shot… And in 51 days I made $15k working six days a week!

If anybody is interested in learning, networking or masterminding with me, let me know because I’d be happy to answer your questions and share with you.

There is more than enough money in the world where we can all make what we need to get by and then some.

I’m not selling anything! Just trying to be helpful.

Danny, re-read what I posted.

I have continue to work and I made a bit over $15k in 51 days...

What crushed me was losing an entire season of fair contracts.... It was a HUGE loss, yet I still managed to bounce back because I wasn't going to let it stop me.

I've been performing and entertaining the entire time. The dollar amount II made and listed above was from June 19 - August 21 (six daays per week with a daily income of $280ish.

I've still been doing the same thing from Sept 3 until last week, but only 2 days a week and during that time I made $6,283.00

Next weeek, I'm moving the dial up to four days per week and I'll leave it there until December 24. This is steady and predictable. I know that in this next month at 4 days per week, I will make just shy of 10k

Do not assume I'm not performing because I am. I'll never stop! AAnd, nobody else is doing this... My guess, as to why nobody else is doing iit is:

1. They don't know about it
2. They know about it and are afraid to try it
3. They rather collect $$ from the government (i.e. unemployment)
4. They took a temp job


What I did, nobody else has been doing and I'm only interested in sharing people who are willing to put the work in to make it happen for them.

These tactics and strategies will not work for anybody who is lazy, don't want to put forth any effort, have trouble stepping outside their comfort zone or people who think they already know everything.

However, if you're like me and want to keep entertaining people and keep getting paid while nobody (or very few) other are, then I'm willing to share what has worked for me.

The offer stands!

If anybody wants to connect, master mind or aask any questions, I'm happy to help.

I have gotten a TON of messages here about this and I'm glad everybody has opted to contact me that way, rather than out in the open. I appreciate all of you and it's my pleasure to have been able to help so many friends in the industry.

Very kind of you to do this Mike

I agree with you that where there is a will there is a way, if you only stop and apply yourself outside your normal thinking

Keep up the good work

No virtual entertainment, DynaMike.... That sucks and I refuse to do it.

I'm a. live entertainer... Not a zoom performer!

Tom,

Thank you!

I remember a kind gentlemen who sent me their book about getting off the couch and doing something!

Those inspiring words have certainly stuck!
