Sam asks: ‘I’m a barista at Starbucks and I also love magic. I want to bring the magic to customers while doing my job. I normally have a sharpie on me and write a lot of names on cups. What tricks do you recommend?‘
You are really lucky because you have a constantly new, and shifting audience to appreciate your magic. Make sure you have the store management on board for you to entertain the customers. It’s all about having a balance between entertaining the customers, and keeping things moving and giving a fast service.
