About the Authors

Elliott SmithElliott Smith

Elliott Smith, Magician, has entertained Corporations, Television audiences, and travelers across Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, and Mexico. Prime Ministers of Canada, International Ambassadors and even the late Liberace have experienced Elliott's special brand of magic and comedy! In addition to performing magic as entertainment, Elliott draws on his business and management background to provide corporate training seminars including team building, motivational and sales training using magic as a vehicle.

"Having been at this business of entertainment and entrepreneurship for over 39 successful years, I understand both your desire and your problems—and I know the solutions.

You may have a wonderful performance, but if you don't properly address the business side, your efforts will be painful and unproductive. The good news is that you don't have to follow that beaten path. 

Seeing the need for a business book for entertainers, Ian and I had an idea to collaborate on a book on how to do what you love and make money. It took two-and-a-half years, countless hours of meetings, brainstorming, writing, re-writing, and tweaking. And when we were done, we ripped-it-up some more and tweaked it again. There were dozens of drafts. The whole idea began with the concept of getting you to a destination, and creating a roadmap to get you from point "A" to point "B" —success.

I'd like to introduce you to my business partner—Ian Quick, also a Magician. Not so long ago he was a practicing lawyer with a lifelong dream he could not forget about. I became his mentor, and guided and watched him as he transformed from an ambitious amateur into a seasoned professional." - Elliott Smith

Rekindling an old childhood passion, Ian Quick has been intimately involved with magic since 1992. Over these years Ian has had numerous performances for private clients as well as some of the largest corporate clients in the country, including Bell, the Bay, and Compaq to name a few.

Says Ian Quick, "I was ready to show the world my magic, but what I needed was an audience. I began performing part-time on weekends, all the while keeping my day job. Many of my peers saw the success I was suddenly having and began asking me for tips, just as I had asked Elliott a few years before. These were all competent magicians who could perform great shows, but didn't know where to find an audience.

One-and-a-half years into writing the book, when we began editing, I felt I had learned enough from the book and was ready to take the leap and switch from part-time to full-time. Now I make a better living than I did as a lawyer, and I love what I do!"   —Ian Quick, Magician
