Johnny Cupcakes is a magician. No really, he used to get paid 20 bucks to do magic tricks at kids' birthday parties. And here's the kicker: That was when he was 8 years old. Proof that John the Magic Boy has always had entrepreneurship in his blood.
You could also consider him a magician because he turned a joke -- making T-shirts with cupcakes on them -- into a multimillion-dollar business. It started out of the trunk of his car, and these days he can draw hundreds of fans to a random location with a single tweet. Want to know how he did it, do you? Well, you're in luck because the "baker" will be spilling the beans, er, batter, when he hits Phoenix this week for two pop-up lectures.
