That's all you
need for a minimum start up. A bag of balloons and a
pump and/or a costumed character.
To be certain, there are lots of other things that
will help. You must know
that your odds of success in business improve
dramatically if you have a business plan. If you have your heart set on becoming a great
clown, magician, ventriloquist, juggler, musician,
puppeteer or combination of two or all of those
things, you must practice. Even on this
simple website, we're going to provide you with a good
number of important details to help you stay
happy and profitable. Don't forget, though, that many
successful people in this business have started with
nothing more than a bag of balloons and a good
attitude, and learned everything else along the way.
There are few businesses that are
this simple, and yet have such great potential for
financial and personal reward.
We're going to focus on
business activities that utilize costumed characters and
balloons (the long, thin ones that are shaped by the
performer), because we've never seen anything else
that people seem to consistently appreciate so much in
relationship to the small amount of time and money
required to begin. It is certainly helpful if you have
some other interest in face painting (also easy for
most people to learn) or other talents and skills, but
we think that these two kinds of hardware and a small
amount or training can provide the fastest return.
