Now I know a lot of you make a career of close up magic, but to me it is a very fufilling hobby. I don't plan on having it as a career, but I do preform street magic in my spare time. I just have a quick survay, how many of you look at magic as a career and how many of you look at it as a hobby

I look at magic as something I would LIKE to turn into a career. I perform shows and that kind of thing now but I wouldn't call it my career...I'm still in High School.

At the moment for me it's somewhere in between. I'd love to make my living as a magician, but I'm not there yet; it's a second (OK, third) business. However, I may have an interesting opportunity coming up in a couple of weeks and that could all change (for the better). I'll keep you posted.

Hobby. I like Stefan's comment that it's therapy. Probably closer to the truth for me too.

Well, after 23 years of school, I'd have to say magic is a hobby.

If I could earn half of what I make at "work" by performing magic...I'd quit in an instant, though. Smile
What is the color of magic?

This isn't really a card question...

Anyways, it is a way for me to get out of my shell. It is my favorite form of therapy, next to electro-shock.

It's my career...AND my hobby...AND my therapy...and one of my passions! But certainly not the ONLY one nor is it remotely the most important one.

For me, magic is a hobby, mentalism is a career (or future career, to be more exact, since I still have another year of school before I can do it full time).

It shouldn't matter.
For almost everyone, it starts as a hobby and, if you can turn a hobby into a career, that's fine.
If it remains a hobby, that's fine, too.
I managed to turn a hobby into a career.
But a great deal of the creative thought in magic comes from the hobbyist.
So, going back to square one, it shouldn't matter.
cheers,

Kard16,
Between gigs if it is a long stretch I think of magic as a hobby. Smile If I am working weekly I think of it as a career. Smile

My goal is to invent a magic experience that all can enjoy.

Let's not make TOO big a thing out of this!
Remember, we're not curing cancer or ending world hunger; we're doing bloody tricks! Smile

Ah, Peter, blunt, forthright, down-to-earth as always! If I didn't know better I'd swear you were (like me) Welsh!
