Yesterday, Friday, May 10, I made an unplanned trip to the emergency room. Everything is fine, but it took more out of me than I expected.

Consequently, we have moved the date for the HOW TO DESIGN A THREE-TRICK SET webinar to Sunday, May 19, 2019, at 4 p.m. (EDT). It is important to me to be able to provide you with the most professional training experience possible; postponing the webinar by a week will help ensure that.

If you have already registered for the webinar, there is nothing further for you to do, except to mark your calendar accordingly. (You will also have received an email with this information.)

If you have yet to register, the website has been updated with the date change. I sure hope you can join us live. (If not, don’t worry, you will have full access to the replay.) Go here for more information:

I wrote a blog post about the difference between a lecture for a magic club and our Workers Webinars. I think it explains why I find the webinar format so satisfying. We have another webinar coming up on Sunday, May 19. You can find out more about it on my website.

P.S. I'm feeling fine now.

Michael, so glad you are feeling better!

I read your blog post.  You are 100% correct in everything you said.  It has been a few years since I attended a lecture, but your description of the attendees was spot-on.  There are always some there more for the social interaction and have zero desire to really learn and do the material.  Others may be fans and simply want to see someone live that they've "known" through videos.  Still others want to learn new material, will purchase the notes and will actually dig in.

I think you are on the right track in paring down the lecture to essentials.  I think it is great the way you focus on palming cards as this is something that many refuse to even attempt due to fear of being caught out.

Good luck with your upcoming webinar and may you remain in good health!

Another excellent webinar!  I was unable to participate live but I had a chance to watch the recorded version today - it was nice to see several familiar names from TMF pop up as the live participants signed in.

Michael's webinars are well-structured, concise, and packed with practical advice on how to work on improving your magic.  They are really designed to give sincere students the tools to work on their own development - for example he doesn't teach you how to memorize a stack, but he teaches you how to decide which stack is right for you.  Yesterday's topic was "Designing a three-trick set" - he taught practical reasons and methods for doing that, and supplied tools that can be applied to your own repertoire.

These sessions are fantastic value for money.  I can't recommend them highly enough.

Thanks for the kind words, Robin.

On Sunday, May 29, at 10 a.m. (EDT), I will do another live presentation of the "Demystifying the Memorized Deck" webinar. We have chosen this time of day to be more convenient for those in the UK and western Europe. If you live in that part of the world and have friends who would like to get started with memdeck, please feel free to share this post. Here's the link:
