Good. Now EVERYONE can check how I was treated last time MY EXPERIENCE was different than others in this thread. My experience HERE where I live is worth billions of times more than the OPINIONS of people in the US who don't know ANYTHING about the conditions here.

A few days back I talked to the most hired childrens magician in Sweden, and he confirmed my observation that in other parts of Sweden than the capital, it has been a decline.

You are once again confirming that some magicians are the worst scumbags I have ever encountered. You are trolls, with the sole purpose to destroy for other magicians. Now LEAVE THIS THREAD. I have already solved the mystery myself. There is nothing left to discuss.

Very interesting, by the way, that one of the most aggressive attackers was actually suspended from the forum, because of his attacks on me. Maybe it's something that's coming for you too? Smile

This explains a lot. Sounds like a recurring problem for him, all the way back to 2003. It reminds me of the saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink it."

Ahhh! Now I see the missing part that wasn't making sense. Once again, Donald was quite wise. That's for this Donald.

Now he's trying to get the thread deleted http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......forum=40 which is odd when such great advice was offered from many only trying to help.

I'd love to have threads deleated when responders said things I didn't like as well, but often these threads also can help others too.

I've just broken down the shows I have for December:

1 Hour shows = 32
2 Hour shows = 29
3 Hour shows = 3

This earns me £5925.00.

If he's not making the money it is because he hasn't ever established his value in the market. Also, it is much easier to dominate a smaller local market than a bigger market or city. Just ask the performers in LA, New York, Chicago, etc.

Perception is the basis of our foundation, and if your perceptions and beliefs at this level are wrong or incorrect, everything based and built upon this will be as well.

In my opinion Mikaela is not making much money because of his attitude

I have been reading a few of the threads Donald as posted. And Mikaela, does not have the most positive outlook on magic.

This is not a personal attack, just my opinion of why he has never been successful as a magician

I agree. There are helpful tips on this thread, which might help others, even if Mikael doesn't find them helpful.

BTW, whenever I've noticed that shows seem to slow down for me, I think that it's because of a couple of things. Either I'm not performing enough shows (being seen by audiences leads to more shows... if I do a good job), OR because I'm not doing enough good marketing (not all marketing leads to more shows, so I used the qualifier "good" in front of "marketing"). Or a combination of the two.

I think I have pretty good sales skills / human relations skills, which is a third part of the picture of getting shows.

So, I don't see it as an external problem that I can't control / can't influence. I realize that I can do things to change my situation, and so I go to work on those.

I try not to see it as a bad economy or lack of interest in magic, because those are things I can't control, and so I would make no effort / little effort to change the situation.

Hi Mikael,

Since this thread started, I’ve tried to offer constructive advice. All my posts have remained friendly, even though your responses have, at times, been inflammatory and disrespectful. I’ve even restrained myself from saying what I really feel, i.e. that you are the most stubborn person I’ve ever dealt with online. I was willing to overlook all that in order to keep the conversation going, and hopefully help to solve your problem about not getting calls for work.

But since you have now resorted to calling all of us “scumbags” and “trolls”, I guess I’ll just have to state what has now become painfully obvious: The reason why you’re not getting any calls is because of your nasty attitude.

Sincerely,

Arthur Stead
