Start small. Magicians choice with just a few cards or objects. Self working card tricks of a mentalism nature. Concentrate on presentations where the objective of the piece is clear to the audience and is rendered in a fair and open way. Try to limit your talking to salient points and strive to be clear and direct. Small pieces will become bigger pieces later and in the mean time you will begin to understand what it's all about. Good luck, you are in for quite a ride.

I've banned Vidar for a month because his first five (and only) posts are all sales pitches for the same item.
