Learning magic takes years of practice and dedication, but what too often gets ignored during the process is the business of being a professional magician. Things like branding, getting publicity for your act, or even just negotiating a decent wage are vital to making a living as a performing magician. Thanks to the Magic Master Summit, taking place this year from November 13-17, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about all of these topics and many others, for the very affordable price of nothing.

Speakers for the Summit include Jeff McBride, Fielding West, Michael Trixx, Jessica Jane Peterson and of course the producer of the Magic Master Summit, David DaVinci. Pick and choose from more than 30 different presentations over the course of the Summit: here's a breakdown of each day's current schedule, though more speakers are being added, so you can probably expect that to change a little bit.

Hit the Magic Master Summit's site to register and receive an assortment of templates for things like invoices, release forms, and confidentiality agreements. No, paperwork is not sexy, but it is incredibly important to get right and very easy to screw up when you're first starting out, so if you're a newbie make sure you check them out.
