As neat as it would be to wave a wand and suddenly have a million dollars (or galleons), that’s unfortunately not how business works in the Muggle World. The good thing is, there’s plenty of magic you can copy from the “Harry Potter” books and movies to earn that million the Muggle-way. Behold, the 4 magic spells your business desperately needs…
1. Stupefy (aka The Stunning Spell)
This spell is often used in quick instances of battle against an opponent. Consider connecting with your customers in a human way, a “Stupefy” spell you can put on your competition. By connecting with them on social media and engaging with them as a person, and not a robot, your opponents won’t know what hit them.

2. Protego (aka The Shielding Spell)
In the Wizarding World, this spell is meant to keep your “soul pure” and protect you from dark sources. When engaging in any new business venture, you want to make sure you’re protected legally from any kind of “evil wizards” that may approach.
3. Expelliarmus (aka The Disarming Spell)
This is used in duels, and almost took out the darkest wizard of all, Lord Voldemort. Use the lessons from this spell to disarm your competition by beating them to market, loading your product up with benefits and plenty of irresistible bonuses.

4. Avada Kedavra (aka The Killing Spell)
This is the most ruthless spell of all, and should only be used during the darkest hour. When you’ve laid out the foundation for a strong sales pitch, gone over all of the details, the benefits, the bonuses – this is when you throw out a good ol’ “Avada Kedavra.” Make sure you end every customer interaction with a big “punch” that’ll keep you in their thoughts. With this kind of strategy, you should be able to take on anything.
