MISCONCEPTION #1 - an artist manager's role is not to fund your career. Most managers salary is commission based (general 10 - 15% of their clients earnings). Based on this fact, most managers look to represent established acts. If you don't make money, they don't make money.
As your personal manager we will take a much more hands-on approach regarding helping you reach fans directly, and assisting and assist you with building your own business. Whether it is running your own recording, publishing, merchandising, or performing/touring operations - your talent should be handled as a business. Even though (for certain types of “mainstream” artists/musicians/songwriters) traditional Record and Publishing deals may still make some sense, the deals that most managers pursue for clients are in the areas of sponsorship, branding, merchandising, and/or licensing. Therefore, our job while helping clients run their own “companies” is to help figure out which deals (if any) complement the clients’ independent operations and fit into their long-term career plans.
