Welcome To My Virtual World!

James Biss, MBA

My Internet Background

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
      - Arthur C. Clarke.

I was first introduced to the World Wide Web in the Autumn of 1994.I was immediately captivated by both its technology and its commercialpotential. Within four weeks I had full Internet access and a web browser.Within eight weeks I had commissioned a firm called 9 to 5 Communicationsin Toronto to build my planned commercial site and had registered my own domain name "magical.com". Within twelve weeks I owned and operated the world's first on-line cyber store for conjuring, MagicalSecrets: The Incredible Virtual Magic Shop!

The Magic Business

Today, MAGICAL SECRETS has enthusiastic customers all over the world. In fact, it has become routine to ship magic tricks, videos and books to Norway, Hong Kong, Chile or Australia and of course, anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. All of my expectations for the commercial potential of this exciting new medium have been realized- and exceeded.

My Presentations

The success of MAGICAL SECRETS, led me to help other entrepreneurs create new ventures and services based on the Internet, and eventually to presenting seminars all across Canada, introducing men and women to the possibilities of on-line commerce. To date, I've addressed over 3,000 individuals!

The seminars include:

NetEventA: Getting Started On The Net!

A comprehensive introduction for novice business and private users alike.

NetEventB: Doing Great Business On The Internet!

Explore the business implications of the Internet revolution and itssecrets.

NetEventC: Creating & Maintaining Business Web Pages!

Discover the key elements of building and changing dynamic web sites- at little or no cost!

NetEventD: Experiencing The State Of The Net!
