Two M’s That Help John Kippen Captivate An Audience

Magic, in itself, is already an attention-grabbing art form. That’s why people from around the world perform a  variety of illusions to mesmerize their audiences. And since magic is versatile and comes in different forms, performers often partner it with another act to entertain the crowd. 

Take, for instance, John Kippen. His niche in the business is mixing magic with motivational speaking. He uses magic to grab his audience’s attention and makes sure that they will leave his shows feeling satisfied and better about themselves.

Working His Magic 

Having found his leverage in the industry, John has made sure that he puts his skills to good use by ultimately helping others become more confident about themselves while working towards self-development. 

“In the past six years, I have performed over 6,000 shows for anywhere from 3 to 700 people. In each performance, audiences leave not only entertained but inspired to change or accept what they donʼt like about themselves,” he said. 

One sign that John knows that he’s left a mark on others is when he often hears them say “If John can, then I can.”  

When he’s not a magician and motivational speaker, John also spends time managing his bi-coastal I.T. service company. But most of the time, he’s dedicated to developing new magic tricks to help him get his message across better. 

“I find that my actions speak as loudly as I do which immediately gives me authenticity. I take interest in my audience and make the magic about them and I am just the conduit,” John said. 

Presently, his goal is to get on as many stages as possible and publish his book which will allow him to reach more people and relay his messages of inspiration. 

Finding Comfort In Magic 

Magic wasn’t always the way for John. But at a time when he needed a source of inspiration the most, magic is what helped him get back up on his feet. 

“Having gone through the trauma of a brain tumor removal which left my face partially paralyzed, performing magic allowed me to rebuild my self-confidence,” he said

John added that the more he performed, the more he was able to stop hiding from the world and realize that his facial difference didn’t define who he was and what he’s capable of doing. 

After this personal revelation, John wanted to share the message “Being Different is your Superpower.” with others that they too are more than what they think themselves to be. And through magic and motivational speaking, he’s doing just that.
