My First Winner!

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician , Special Offers

Well, at Wow Cafe and Wingery in Warner Robins, GA; people volunteered their name and email address for a chance to win a 25 dollar gift certificate.  Had a great time performing at Wow today and at the end of my shift myself and a member of the waitstaff drew a lucky winner from the bowl full of names.  It was exciting and a lot of fun.  It definitely brought more energy to the social scene at Wow Cafe in Warner Robins, plus Wow got a good deal out of it because they sold a gift certificate and the lucky winner got a good deal out of it because he got the gift certificate and the more people I get to subscribe to my email list, I get a good deal out of it as well.  Everybody wins.  But the drawing was a lot of fun!  It felt great to hand the gift certificate out!

On another note, I am looking to practice some more magic tricks.  Man!  Business takes a lot of time and work to run, but I love running a business.  Enjoy the hard work, the business side of the house as well as learning new magic tricks and becoming a better performer.  Well, I encourage people to come out to the restaurants on the day I am holding these events as well as be one of the lucky email subscribers who also wins a free $25 gift certificate.  Well, it’s late, tired and time for me to relax and get some sleep!

Good Ideas Suggested

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Somebody who I hired suggested a great idea.  I would like to implement it once I run it by my restaurants to see if they OK it. This will help to promote my restaurants as well.  I buy a 25 dollar gift certificate once a month from my restaurants and in addition to the free report on “How To Throw An Awesome Party” I offer once a month a drawing for my AWeber subscribers to see who wins the 25 dollar gift certificates.  Having this drawing once a month will give people incentive to subscribe to my AWeber list and in addition to the free report on “How To Throw An Awesome Party.”   So, I believe that will be good value to people who subscribe to email list.  I am excited and looking forward to this!

Marketing To Weddings

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I am also beginning to market to weddings.  I did a wedding not too long ago and it was awesome!  So, I think some of my marketing efforts need to start going towards weddings as I would like to work more in that area.  All in all, keeping in contact with some folks who I have hired to help me set up a newsletter and looking forward to landing more gigs and bringing more value to my customers.

Reading Up On Starting A Second Business

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I have been reading up on creating a business that sells information products.  It looks like it is like any business:  hard work.  Yet, it looks rewarding.  Should be interesting and also helpful in making enough money to buy my first 5th Wheel RV and a good truck to tow it.  The business will be my second company.

I also had the opportunity to take my wife looking at RVs and also an RV park, that way she could see what RV parks were like.  It was interesting to see how people decorated their RVs to make them as much a house home as possible.  The book I have been reading on full time RVing had a lot of information on the advantages of RVing as opposed to owning a home or renting an apartment or living in a trailer.  Seems like RV living is pretty cheap and inexpensive when you compare the costs of home ownership, renting an apartment or living in a trailer.  Well, I just wanted to make a blog entry and now it’s time to finish here.  Everybody have a good evening!

Monthly Newsletter For Email Subscribers Coming Soon

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician , Special Offers

Well, my company will be sending out a monthly e-newsletter for my email subscribers.  I am excited about it as well.  In addition, my email subscribers will be sent a survey and asked to complete it.  In return for completing the survey, we will offer some kind of deal or free gift.  That is yet to be determined what exactly what that special deal or free gift will be for completing the survey.  The newsletter is going to be great and I look forward to sending out these monthly newsletters.

In other news, I started looking at Class A Fifth Wheel RVs and a good diesel Chevy Truck that is at least a 2500 model that could tow a Fifth Wheel Class A RV.  I have been doing a lot of research into RV living and it appeals to me.   My wife and I do not have children, so this helps tremendously towards living a full time RV lifestyle.  The flexibility, mobility and the much cheaper expenses are huge advantages.  I, of course, plan to stay in GA as I have clients here for my magic business.  But even so, it’s still nice to have that mobility and flexibility which gives my wife and I many options and makes it easier for us to move to another location or in some instances to vacation.  Well, time to end this post here.  I hope everybody had a great day!  Later!

Looking At Camping Gear and RVs

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

My wife and I took a trip over to Camping World to see what kind of camping gear and RVs they have.  The RVs were NICE!  I would love to one day have the money to be able to purchase an RV and take it on a camping vacation.  That would be AWESOME and boatloads of fun.

The RVs pretty much had all the comforts of home except it’s more compact.  Really enjoyed my trip over there with my wife.  We were also looking at some camping gear.  My wife and I are talking about doing some camping sometime in the future.  I wonder what some awesome campsites would be for a vacation?  I need to do more research on this.

The RVs you can get yourself satellite TV and internet connection.  Has internet and it looks like you could hook up to a water supply and electricity in the 5th wheel RVs.  They even have some “full timer” RVers.  Sounds like it would be fun to be a “full timer” but realistically, for me, because I have my magic business, I feel it would be better for me, if I were to ever become an RVer, to have the RV for a camping vacation.  Which to me, is not impossible and I can think of several ways to start a second additional business and make more money to maybe one day I could actually afford to buy one of those RVs for a camping trip.

Tired

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Looking forward to some relaxing down time tomorrow.  I am going to learn a few new magic tricks and work on my ring and string routine.  It should be fun.  Had a good time performing at my gig tonight.  People really enjoyed it.  But right now, I am beat and ready to just sit down and watch some TV with my wife.

Just Finished My Restaurant Gigs!

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Had an awesome time performing at my restaurant gigs tonight.  Northside High School class of 1992 were having their 20th year class reunion at Wow Cafe and Wingery where I work as a magician.  I graduated Northside High School back in 1995, so I remembered some of the people who were in attendance at the class reunion from when I was just starting out high school.  Amazing how much time has past!  Crazy!  20 years ago these folks graduated and I remembered them from 20 years ago when we were in high school!  Pretty soon my 20th year class reunion will be coming up here in a few years in 2015.  It’s just amazing how fast time flies.

I remember my days as an Air Force military brat moving around from place to place.  I also remember my move from an air base in New York when it was closed down to Robins AFB here in Warner Robins GA.  Going to middle school and then high school and now seeing these people at a 20 year class reunion.

Florida Here We Come!

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

Wife and I just booked the Townhouse we are going to be staying at for our Florida vacation.  This is going to be AWESOME!  The townhouse looks great!

I am also very happy with how the business has been progressing.  I have some new ideas on how to bring value to my subscribers and customers and am looking forward to implementing them.  I also need to do a video or perhaps a podcast.  That’s something for me to consider is a podcast.  Not exactly sure how those work, but I am going to read up on them.

Reading World War II History And Planning Florida Vacation

By Davenport Magical Entertainment, L.L.C. | Atlanta Magician

I have been reading some World War II history with some interest.  One book is written by a “Band of Brothers” soldier in the US Army from World War II and I also been watching some documentaries on World War II on YouTube.  It seemed to be a pretty rough time period for the world.

On the flip side, I have been planning a Florida vacation for my family and look forward to traveling down to Florida and going to the beach and Sea World!  It is going to be totally awesome!  My family is excited about the trip.  Personally, I love Clearwater Beach, Florida.  It’s my favorite beach so far, but I hear Destin, Florida also has a beautiful beach as well.  We’ll probably stop by Destin to check it out and see what it’s like.  It’s been so long since I have been to Sea World (about 20 years or so if my memory serves me correctly) so it should be interesting to see it again.  I can’t remember much about the experience except for whales jumping out of the water.
