Being an entertainer (magician) allows for freedom and flexibility. The opportunities of self-employment and setting your own schedule allow for time freedom. But few performers have the mind-set and skills to both make a living and prevent them selves from being time-broke.
What I mean by “time-broke” is that usually being an entertainer requires hours and hours of practice, as well as hours and hours of marketing, publicity and promotion, leaving very little time to actually enjoy the fruits of all the labor.
So unless the performer REALLY LOVES what they do, and lives it, breathes, it, drinks it, and sleeps it, they might be imprisoned into a labor of love and they can not take time for an actual vacation.
Regarding marketing, the internet allows us to use technology tools to almost run our lead generation systems “AutoMagically”. I’ve recently found a system that uses a series of blogs, websites, auto-responders, and lead capture pages, that ALMOST does put my lead generation on auto-pilot.
I say “almost” because, there will ALWAYS need to be the human interaction in any system.
