Happy Labor Day 2011!

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Parade lineup of union workers

Happy Labor Day! We hope that you have a wonderful day with family friends, and all the people in your life that matter.

We’ll be spending labor day at our local festival in downtown Mansfield. You can catch our performance at 11:45AM. Be sure to hang out afterward to say hi! Heck, we might even hook you up with a balloon animal!

Thinking about Labor Day reminds me of how blessed we are to have awesome customers like you! I don’t do this nearly enough, but…

Got an Infant? Get Them an Eye Exam Through InfantSEE!

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Infant Eye Exams - InfantSEE - Non Profit Organization - baby wearing sunglasses

This past Friday we did an engagement in conjunction with Nova Vision Care in Beavercreek, OH to spread awareness about the importance of infant eye exams.

Most people take their babies to the pediatrician and the dentist, but they don’t think about taking them to the optometrist! Every baby from 6 – 12 months should receive an eye exam. Many eye problems come from issues that can be identified in an infant’s first year of life. By getting them an eye exam, you’re helping to provide your child a healthy future!

I learned about a really cool organization called InfantSEE. It’s a non-profit organization that provides comprehensive eye exams to infants 12 months and younger regardless of the families income or access to insurance coverage.

Picture of Candles With Number 100

Wow… Has this blog seriously had 100 posts already? Seriously? That’s unbelievable!

We have a lot to talk about here. Obviously we’re proud of our Anti Bullying School Assembly. We talk about that a lot, but we also are passionate about corporate entertainment and family entertainment.

That means the posts here cover a wide array of topics. If I had to pick 10 of my favorite posts, here’s what I’d recommend you read.

Guest Post – Thoughts on Gym Memberships

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

I was honored to write a guest post over at Feelgooder. Check it out when you get a chance… 3 Ways Not to Look Like an Idiot at the Gym.

Basically it talks a little bit about our journey from morbid obesity. It wasn’t a good fit for this blog, which is mainly about magic.

In contrast, Feelgooder is all about physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual health. In other words, it was a perfect fit for this post.

I thought it was going up today, but realized too late that Saturday in America is Sunday in Australia. Oops. Anyway, we’re a day late but drop by and take a look anyway! [Click Here to Read Article]

If you’ve spent any time on the site you’re aware of our interactive online magic tricks. We get a lot of positive feedback about this feature of the site.

Many folks can’t access them though. Either they’re behind a web filter that blocks access, their computer doesn’t support Flash, or both.

Today we’re remedying that situation. We’re releasing a brand new interactive magic trick that’s designed to be shared via e-mail!

This trick loads as a PowerPoint slide show, so nearly everyone should be able to view it. Check it out by clicking the link below, then share the fun with a friend!

We’re More than Just Magic Shows!

DJ Equipment

We do “soft launches”. Instead of jumping headfirst into a new market without knowing what we’re getting into, we just spread the word among our current customers.

The interest we get back helps us determine what to do next.

To that end here are a few other services we have available thanks to various business partners, but haven’t officially launched yet.

Tis the Season to Return Bad Gifts!

Welcome to America’s second favorite shopping holiday! Haul back all the junk you don’t want! Use that gift card burning a hole in your pocket!

Honestly, the day after Christmas is crazier than Black Friday. The return line at Wal-Mart alone is enough to make me want to crawl underneath the covers until January!

In our family gift returns are a rarity. We start thinking through Christmas presents months in advance and only make purchases after weeks of internet research and deliberation.

We’re really detail oriented like that. It’s both a blessing and a curse, but it’s also why our magic shows are so awesome.

I found a hilarious article from the New York Times about bad Christmas gifts. There’s some pretty funny stories there.

Here’s my favorites:

All of us here at Shizzle Dizzle Magic wish you a very Merry Christmas. We hope that it’s filled with family, friends, and loved ones.

2010 has been a wild ride for us. Our little family business has been blessed far beyond what we deserve. Our bookings have literally increased 975% this year.

That’s a real number. I didn’t pull that out of my behind. 975% organic growth.

I am truly humbled. Especially when you consider that this occurred during one of the worst recessions in American history.

Yes, we run a good business, but there’s no denying it… We are blessed.
