Years ago I did school assembly program called the Magic of Books. It’s a motivational literacy program —
I use magic and comedy to demonstrate the cool things you can learn through reading.
I did at least 800 shows, and over 200 schools — nearly all of them in my home state of Colorado. Recently, I donated the program to my kid’s school. It was a hoot to have 2 of my kids in the audience, one of whom got up and did a magic trick on her own. (My other kid was a “star” in a trick I did.) To be honest, I thought this was the end of the story.
Check out this video we did at one of the schools here in Colorado:
But then in a fluke, a school from a nearby district called and asked me to do it. “Yes!” I said before thinking. (The assemblies are fun, but to be brutally honest, my corporate groups pay better. Hey! Kids need new shoes!) Then I noticed that I had a spring in my step the whole day; I was THRILLED to have booked the show because I love doing it. Love it.
Guess what? I’m back! No, I’m not a school assembly guy. But I am a motivational speaker who occationally likes doing school assemblies. Because I love them.
I guess I could do it as an add-on to one of my corporate road trips. But I’m assuming I’ll mostly do them here in Colorado in between speaking jobs.
Ok clients…don’t sweat it. I’m not a kids performer. But yeah, I love doing it and I’m gonna do maybe one school assembly per month.
