E36 Michael Grandinetti - Magician, Illusionist & Entrepreneur

Fearless Entrepreneurship Podcast with Cory Mosley

Michael Grandinetti is a master magician and illusionist. He performed his first show at the age of 5. His personality and style were introduced to the world when he performed his original creation “The Spike Tower” on NBC television special The World’s Most Dangerous Magic. He was covered in a mixture of gasoline and kerosene, secured by chains with only 60 seconds to escape before 2 walls of flaming steel spikes were thrust toward him at over 50mph. The special brought together 7 illusionists from around the world and at 21, Michael was the youngest on the show. Years later he’s been named by Entertainment Weekly as a great magician who can truly communicate with a TV audience. He’s been featured and written up in Hidden Remote, Digital Journal and more. Michael’s been on Masters of Illusion for multiple seasons on the CW. He’s consulted on the show Bones, the Today Show, Entertainment Tonight, and the list goes on and on. During this episode, Cory and Michael discuss Michael’s balance of being a performer and an entrepreneur. Michael discusses finding his passion at the age of 5 and his experience in being an introvert in an extroverted field.
