What Business Owners Can Learn From Magicians | Slightly Unusual Corporate Entertainment 2022

We are hired by corporate owners and other business executives to provide corporate entertainment at stage shows, team building events, trade shows and much more. While we are hired to provide entertainment for your guests, the magic we bring to the table can go a long way into improving your business as a whole.


What Business Owners Can Learn From Magicians | Slightly Unusual Corporate Entertainment 2022


As well as being a professional entertainer, our CEO Craig Petty also has years of experience when it comes to business. We have Slightly Unusual for corporate events, our sister company Non-Stop Kids Entertainment for kid's parties and even The Netrix, a business established to provide hundreds of magic & business related courses. It goes without saying Craig knows a thing or two about running a successful business. This is why we wanted to take the opportunity to talk to you about what you can learn from a magician.


Be A Few Steps Ahead Of Everyone Else


Part of being a magician is thinking miles ahead of everyone else. While a spectator is watching them perform and wondering where did the card go to, the magician is already thinking about how to take their watch without them realising because they are thinking ahead. This same principle applies to business. You should be thinking about long term goals. You can't always take each day as it comes. Having short, medium and long term goals will help you stay ahead above the rest.


Prepare For Change


The world is going to evolve, no matter what happens. You have to get with the times, otherwise you will end up being left behind. That being said, you also need to prepare for change. To give an example, a magician never tells their audience what is meant to happen at the end of a trick. The reason why is because if the trick goes wrong, the magician can change the outcome without the audience being none the wiser. In business, even if you have a plan in place, don't expect it to just work. There may be an obvious better way to go about your goals when an opportunity presents itself. Don't be afraid to take the opportunity when it arrives and prepare to change when the time is right.


Hard Work Will Pay Off


Learning magic is a lot harder than you may think. But when you put in the hard work and watch the results pay off, your work ethic will be commended. You need to ask yourself if you are working hard at making your business a success. It's very easy to end up spending all day focusing on something and not getting anywhere. Make sure the hard work you are putting in will ultimately pay off in the long run. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it.


Have A Great Attitude


You can have all the experience and tools in the world, but if you don't believe you can do well in your business, there is no point in trying. A great attitude will go a long way to ensuring your strategy is effective. Magicians have egos the size of a planet. They think they are amazing, and that works. It captivates everyone's attention. They immediately want to see more. A great attitude will give the mentality to tackle any obstacles your way. There will be times when it gets challenging and things might not go your way, but the true test will be getting back up and maintaining that determined attitude. The real skill is believing in yourself and your business.
