Got this the other day, it's put out by Todd Anderson from the Dayton OH area.  Reall not a bad program.  The main thing he does is have a sign with "Choose A Balloon" on top, under that he has "Please Tip" and a list of 12 simple one balloon animals.

I like his method, I don't get asked for Elmo, or an ostrich, or a bear on a heart or anyone that takes time and 3 or 4 balloons to make, therefore my speed increased resulting in more tips per hour.

I have a store I busk in,  I set up in the Kids clothing section at Sears.  It's a sweet deal - they get people coming in to the store that may not have otherwise and I get a warm spot in the winter and cool in the summer.  And if they ask me to be there they give me a gift card for the store.

How are you making it this year?  I'm in frozen Ohio but checking New Mexico and NOLA, my usual winter destinations, the high temps there are in the 30's and low 40's, which is too damn cold to work the streets.  The whole country seems to be frozen out this year.

Welcome to the business of twisting.  You Tube has lots of instructional vids for twisters so look and learn.  I have been twisting for 18 years full time and making a very good living at it, brobably can do 75 different sculptures easily.  However, I have learned that the kids and parents are delighted when I limit my balloons to 12 simple creations.
Dog, bee, sword, elephant, flower, alligator, crazy hat, butterfly, monkey, rabbit, giraffe, and dinosaur.  I have the list on a sign.  The GREAT thing is I can take the sign, add "please tip" and busk.  Since I limited the choices to these my tips have gone up to average USD $75 per hour.

I'm a fairly new balloon twister. I started twisting after taking my 2 daughters to a birthday party they had those cheap balloon packs for you to "make your own balloon". I remember the look in my then 3 year olds eyes when I didn't know how when all the instructions were "hogged".
I now can make several creations, I have done some for friends kids parties. I now have been asked to do paid work.
Well that's a bit about me and my balloon beginnings.
Looking forward to learning more.

Glad all went well and you made it back.  Sorry about your brother-in-law.  That was a rough situation!  Thank you for sharing your adventure you hardened criminal you (black market and breaking laws - never expected that of you!).
