A Personal Introduction

“There’s No Business Like Show Business”

Welcome to Part Show Part Business a blog for amateur and professional performing artists. I’m magician Leif David from Ali K. Zam Productions and I am based out of Kelowna, British Columbia Canada. To learn more about me please visit the About Me page.

Why a blog?

I love magic. No, I REALLY love magic, and I wanted a way to give back to the community that I love so much. Many of the other magic blogs and forums online are very negative. Instead of complaining or criticizing I thought the best way to give back to the community would be to share what has and hasn’t worked for me.

Topics will include marketing materials, graphic design, branding, back of room sales, evaluation forms, use of photo’s, newsletters, videos, custom show material, trick reviews, and hopefully much more. It’s also my goal to offer a rich multimedia experience. In the future I would like to include lots of photo’s, video, podcasts, and downloadable templates that you can use in your business. I will focus on quality posts rather than quantity of posts, so please bear with me if there are long periods of time without updates. All of this is going to be offered for free. I’m not looking to sell an eBook, a marketing course, or anything like that. I truly just want to give back to the community.

I hope that my posts will inspire you to take action in your own business, and to join the conversation. On my blog I’ve enabled Facebook commenting. I’ve seen how great online discussion can be once people are using their real names and they are accountable for what they say. I hope that by having others join the conversation that I will learn from you too.

So again, welcome to Part Show Part Business and I hope you will subscribe to my blog via the RSS feed and friend me on Facebook so we can stay in touch.

Your friend in magic,
Magician Leif David
