By Alexander the Great Magician
I'm coming up to my first busy weekend of 2011 and I've been reading up on some of my favourite magicians. At work tonight I just breezed through a book by some real experts at entertaining children: Steve Taylor, Sammy Smith and David Ginn. I have read a bit of Smith and Ginn before but this was the first time I heard of ventriloquist and magician Steve Taylor.
They all managed to give lots of advice as the book was formatted as a discussion between the three upon various topics. Some of the greatest information was a story Sammy Smith told about Influence in the last chapter which I'll talk about here:
Because he knew he had the power to influence his admirers, and he used this ability to make them feel truly important.After every show that I perform as Alexander the Great I am very cognizant that I have the same power. Often times my magic show will leave a lifelong impression on the children just the same way great performers have left a lifelong impression on me, and this is truly influence.It's my hope that the children I affect through my entertaining magic shows will continue to spread the positive influence that has inspired me.
