As self employed, international entertainers, performers and coaches, it is always a big thing to plan an international visit in between busy seasons. There are many things to consider – flights, insurance and making sure all your regular financial commitments are covered when you are away. Continue reading →
We are travellers, explorers and adventurers who love our nomadic lifestyle. Since June last year, we live mostly in our campervan (our littlle cosy cottage on wheels) with occasional visits to our caravan in Glastonbury. We travel up and down the UK and Europe and the US. We love to discover new places and meet new people. Continue reading →
Despite having a history of traveling world wide as well as living in motor homes, caravans, retreats, holiday lets and villas. Since Veronica and I left our flat in Cardiff last June for a life of travel, exploring and adventure. There has been a time of huge adjustment and change.
Now the dust is settling I can honestly say of myself, everyday decisions have become a lot easier to make and day to day life seems far more rewarding, fulfilling and healthier. As we travel, we perform magic shows, share stories and provide workshops through our School of Busking and provides alternative life coaching.
What has had to change in accordance to our lifestyle is ourselves. For example I was once overly concerned of what others thought of me, I have grown to realise that is an incredible waste of time and energy. Even simple tasks such as ordering food are so much smoother and faster, I once use to pore over the menu as if I was buying house instead of a meal.
It is hard to determine what has brought about a more fulfilling outlook. Perhaps the change of lifestyle or age and experience or a finer balance of both. Perhaps I have been inspired by those I have coached, who have achieved there own alternative aims, goals and dreams. One thing is for certain I have no regrets in living in the fullness of our dream.
Over the last decade we have received countless of emails from people who have set of on all sorts of adventurers, world travels, winning national awards, cycling around the UK coast line, living off grid and so on. When we receive these reports from people saying they been inspired by what we do, this blows my mind. Some of these reports have come from people I have coached through my qualified coaching practice (PGC). Others have just heard or followed our story until they felt they should make contact with us.
We are deeply passionate in encouraging people to live there dream. If you are wanting to make changes in your life why not contact me for a free coaching consultation. If you have a story you like to share with us we would love to hear from you.
The Magic Wizardry of turning your passion into your business.

Let’s get right in by asking you today -what is your passion? By that, I mean what is the one thing that excites you and that you enjoy it above all other things. Continue reading →
Busking as a Balloon Artist
I have over 10 years experience of performing as a balloon artist – either busking or paid gigs at a variety of events – nationally and internationally. So, my guaranteed way of a successful busking day is to set up my balloon rig and start making balloons. Continue reading →
I first presented my lecture “The Time Warp Effect” at the first School of Busking course in 2006. It has become a keynote lecture, a true building block for street performers. Since then it has been published and has become a widely distributed article and it has benefited street performers, magicians, story tellers and public speakers alike.
Street performers both seasoned and those just starting out from around the world can see the importance of this lecture. Performers like Jungle Josh, Grindle, Alexander Wells, Alex D Fisher, Doris Stokes and Matthew Le Mottée are just a few who have taken the time to come and give me feedback and thanks.
Further to this, I was asked to deliver my lecture at Magic and Meaning conference in Las Vegas in 2013. A conference where some of the greatest minds in the world of magic come together and share their insights, philosophies and inspirations. Here I took my lecture that was geared towards street performers and taught how this secret of “The Time Warp Effect” was transferable to all fields of public perfroming. I named this lecture “The Way of the Time Lord.”
When the late dear Eugene Burger, then the dean of the Magic and Mystery School approached me after my lecture and took the time to say “I really enjoyed your lecture Mario” I was deeply moved. Followed by , Larry Hass, Paul Draper, Luna Shimada, my comedy magic hero Mac King and many, many other Magicians, all singing the praises of the significance of this lecture. I felt honored and it confirmed the importance to me of this work.
This lecture has gone worldwide and I was asked twice to deliver it at the Blackpool Magic Convention (the worlds biggest magic convention) – the first time in 2010. This lecture is the result of my life’s work. I gladly give it to you, you are all welcomed to use it. All I ask if you do that you give the School of Busking and myself credit for it. I am including for free a video recording that was taken at the Magic and Meaning conference in Las Vegas.
