The Dream Team

“Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.”

–Mattie Stepanek

Greetings Magical friends,

All is well in Las Vegas. As we look towards the holidays, it reminds me how much Santa depends on his helpers to make dreams come true.

My question to you this season is who are your helpers making your dreams come true?

Who is on your team?

You are not in this alone. You have our help to get you to the next level of excellence! Some say, “It takes a village.” At Mystery School we have evolved a “Dream Team” of magical people to help empower our goals and your goals too!

“Teamwork is so important that it is virtually impossible for you to reach the heights of your capabilities or make the money that you want without becoming very good at it.”

–Brian Tracy

Let us help you build your team!

I’ve learned a lot about team building from my friend and manager, Tobias Beckwith.  When I was first starting, Tobias guided me to the right printers, illusion consultants, costumers, sound editors and more– in short, all the various people and artists that I needed to generate a final product that was professional and polished.  This is the type of work we do at our Mystery School.  We help people like you to build skills and business, and we become part of your team, to help guide you to make the right artistic and business decisions to strengthen your own career.

We are always planning new events to invite you to.  Take a look at some of our upcoming seminars and offerings here:

Big News at Mystery School

My recent post here and on Facebook got lots of attention and comments worldwide. As you know, I’ve been crafting a new way to teach magic.


This new series is a step forward for our School, and also a step backwards in time… to a time when the “real” professional secrets of magic were passed down from master to student. As Eugene Burger told me years ago, the real secrets are not in the books or on the DVDs, but are passed from master to apprentice… In whispers.

Here is the next step-
