In our annual visit holiday with Murray Sawchuck, "Celebrity Magician" from Las Vegas, this year he talks about achieving one of his dreams: appearing in the Hollywood Christmas Parade. It shows how determination and dedication to a goal can be accomplished. Murray also gives us a health update on Michael Giles, another Las Vegas magician who is undergoing treatment for stage four pancreatic cancer. There is a link on the blog below for you to visit the Go Fund Me website where you can get more information and donate to his fund.
Murray also tells us more about branding and marketing yourself, but there is a very interesting story about a failure before a live audience while recording an episode of "The Masters of Illusion" television show. It just goes to show how problems can come to us all.
