We are often tempted to make big changes or 180-degree shifts when things aren’t going just right. Yet, the extraordinary is closer than we think—one degree away. Even the smallest micro-shifts in our actions and attitudes can create transformative breakthroughs in our leadership and our lives.
Hi, I’m John Guastaferro. As a brand expert, corporate trainer, certified life coach, and yes—a professional magician—I work with top brands and leaders to spark wonder in three core areas success—Team, Brand, and Cause. I bring these concepts to life through keynotes, trainings, retreats, one-on-one coaching, and consulting.
Ever since I can remember, I have been drawn to creative ways to add more wonder to the world. I’ve traveled the globe performing magic and have spent more than 20 years inspiring teams, building brands, and advancing social causes. Through it all, I am driven by one mission: To connect people to the extraordinary!
By uncovering parallels between the world of business and the world of magic, we can all become purpose-driven wonder-makers.

THE MAGIC OF ONE DEGREE
We are often tempted to make big changes or 180-degree shifts when things aren’t going just right. Yet, the extraordinary is closer than we think—one degree away. Just as heating water from 211˚ to 212˚ brings it to the boiling point, one degree micro-shifts in our actions and attitudes can create powerful possibilities. It is a message I’ve shared in my international-selling book One Degree and with top brands and business leaders.
