"I love your book "Highway To Success" so much and it taught me some great additional sales ideas & methods, even though I have been preforming professional for over 3 decades and doing the associated sales that go along with it. On top of that it reminded me of areas my business I was slacking in. I still use it often as a reference and have read it thoroughly more than once! Once again, congrats on a great book that will assist the magic community for many years to come."

"First of all I'd like to thank you for your excellent book, I bought
it a few years ago and has been my reference bible since. The section on how to put on
your own show has helped me so much, especially the advice on how to draft up a press
release. For the last 5 years I have held a weekend of magic every summer in a theatre
barn each year have sold out because of the info I put into practice from your book. Also
recently, I made one my dreams possible by producing and performing in a show in one of
London's West End Theatres last month, again this also sold out and will be doing it
again next year, thanks again to you. From one of your grateful readers and student."
"In my 15 years as owner of Ottawas most
prestigious talent agency, I have never come across a guide to the industry as
comprehensive and easy to read as "Highway to Success". Written with the
beginner in mind, Elliott and Ian provide us with common sense advice that we sometimes
take for granted. Any entertainer must have talent in order to succeed and make his living
at this game. But the performer who also understands business etiquette and organization
has a distinct advantage. As a matter of fact, I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this
book to any person striking out into business on their own, especially those providing a

"I found the advice in "Highway to Success"
to be useful and practical from page # 1. I enjoyed reading it because it's an
entertaining business book for entertainers with ideas that are concise and
effective. I highly recommend this book to any entertainer looking for a place to
start or a seasoned pro looking to stay current."
"Daytime" Host - Rogers Television 22
"I thoroughly enjoyed "Highway to
Success"...not only was it very informative, but the presentation kept me interested
and entertained for the entire read. The Highway to Success can be used by any and all, be
it personal or company business...Elliott and Ian have paved the way for a lot of people
to promote themselves and see the payoff. After all, if you don't promote yourself, nobody
will do it for you. I'm already using some of the great tips in my everyday dealings

"Highway to Success is a book every entertainer
should read. No matter how long youve been in the business, this book provides a
valuable checklist to compare what you know and what you didnt even consider
previously. It will also help you organize your everyday methods of keeping records of
your agreements with clients. Most of us learn the hard way that if we havent
written down what we will provide a client, then the client can say Thats not
what we agreed to. Its definitely a good read."
Lois Siegel Productions Inc.
"As a professional businessman for over 30
years, I have started and operated 3 businesses during that time and have been very
successful. Recently I purchased a copy of Highway to Success and was very impressed. It
sparked me to apply methods and techniques that I hadn't used in a long time. I have since
noticed that my business has been growing even quicker."
Tru-Max Heritage Locksmith Inc.
"It's really well written! You were able to pull
together all of the little bits of common sense and business techniques that one should
pick up over the course of running a business, and compile them into one easy-to-read, no
nonsense package. This book really is a "one-stop-shop" for business success,
not only for entertainers, but for anyone who is involved in a home based business."
Musician and Independent Representative for Retire Quickly Corporation
"I just finished the last page of your book. I loved
it.. It was well written and not boring at all, it reads itself. It made me realize what
it actually takes and how to manage and run an entertainers life. I find the
template samples in the back very useful. Thanks for writing this book, I loved the way it
taught me what a routine in the day of a professional is. I have been wondering for so
long, and this is the next best thing to seeing it live."
Magician CAM Gold Medal Winner
"Once Id read the book, which covers
everything from setting up an office to closing a sale, I immediately thought of the many
entrepreneurs who could benefit from just such advice. Smith and Quick could definitely
teach them a trick or two.But perhaps the real magic of the book is that it applies to
anyone with a dream who just needs a little business savvy to get off the ground."
Reporter Ottawa Business Journal
"Dont be misled by the books name. Though
it is aimed at those of us who are left-brain thinkers, this tome provides excellent
information for people in all types of business. Written in an easy-to-follow style, the
authors provide a comprehensive, organized and systematic approach to business
management. For the start-up business person (the book) is an ideal read as it
contains a sound source of the basics. For someone whose business is already up and
running, this book provides handy reference material to gage your business
Publisher and Editor Capital Style Magazine
"You talk about things that I would never had thought
Its a very helpful book
especially business etiquette: the one
thing most people dont think about."
Newscaster/Host Ottawa Citizen Business TV
"As I read through it, its more than just
for entertainers. If youre any entrepreneur starting off, its got some great
tips and its very well written. You cannot grow your business unless youve got
a good foundation
and thats whats in this book. It can teach someone and
help someone planning and putting together that good solid base."
Host - Its Your Money, CFRA 580 Newstalk Radio
"I was extremely
impressed by the professional and creative presentation of the work, as well as the vital
information packed into every well-written paragraph. This book is an essential guide for
any performer or creative talent working in the entertainment industry today."

"Highway to Success is a very well written book.
It is well organized and provides a great deal of information, not only to the
entertainer, but also to anyone who is running a small business. I found many of the
ideas useful to me as a small business owner and independent consultant. Great
