5 “Magical” Strategies to Make Your Print Selling Dreams Come True

“A beautiful lady dressed in shining blue appeared. She raised her wand and said: ‘Wake, Pinocchio! Good Geppetto needs a son!’

 ‘I can move!’ cried Pinocchio. ‘I’m a real boy!’

 “‘No,’ the Blue Fairy said sadly. ‘You have life, but to become a real boy, you must prove yourself brave, truthful, and unselfish.’”

There’s just nothing like that infamous magic wand.

The magic wand sparkles as an eleventh-hour blessing from Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, as Glinda’s glimmer of grace in Oz, and as destiny personified when the wand “chooses” Harry Potter to be the unexpected hero.

Magic wands echo through literature as the muted cry of every road-weary soul. “If only . . .” we sigh, “there was an easier way.”

With a Wave of the Wand

If you had a magic wand – even just for a day – would you use it?

Wouldn’t EVERYONE? Well, of course! Just poke the words “Life Hack” into a YouTube or Google search, and you’ll be pummeled by thousands of results. Why? Because life hacks are all about eliminating humanity’s manifold frustrations in simple and deliciously clever ways.

Fast and easy? Um . . . yes, please!

If you’re like the average American worker, you’ll spend nearly 2,080 hours working this year. Wouldn’t you like to wave a magic wand over that reality and get a few of those hours back? If you’re a printer – and you want to sell more printing – you can!
