A few years ago, I decided to take up magic because I wanted to invest my time to learn a skill rather than simply chill in front of the TV.
Living in Japan I was limited with my access to find people who might be able to teach me so I did the next best thing; a google search.
I read up on some forums about various tricks and some of the best magicians in the world at the time.
All told I ended up purchasing close to a $1000 worth of magic goods on eBay.
At first I focused on trick decks and gimmicks, but over time I found myself drawn to the various training DVDs available. Why?
Because I didn’t want to simply trick my audience with some gimmick but rather amaze them with my skill.
Slowly, but surely, I honed my talent and by the end of that year I was well on my way to becoming a professional.
And while I eventually chose to focus my efforts elsewhere, I learned one very valuable lesson – that with all the great training sessions available it helps when someone can give us a blueprint of which to start with and what to do next.
Without one, it’s much more of a hit and miss game.
I have read over 200 books and listened to numerous audio sessions on the topics of marketing, success and personal development and they took time.
If I could do it over again I wish I had someone who could have cut down my learning time by selecting the most effective material for my level of understanding.
That’s what this site is all about – saving time and money to achieve the results we want. To learn faster and be better prepared for our future.
