First Step On Your Journey

calendarDecember 16, 2013

I have been in artist management for over 30 years. One of the conclusions I have come to after leading so many careers/ministries is that an artist manager is not necessary (and a good one can’t be had by most artists) until the artist’s income reaches about a half a million dollars per year.

An artist manager is paid a percentage (usually 15%) of the artists gross income. It is simply not economically feasible for a manager to do the hard work for less. Therein lies the dilemma.

For the few lucky artists who find a qualified manager who is willing to do the work of developing them to that level there are untold others who will never attract one. What is one to do then?

Qualified managers are in short supply and learning how to do the job is relegated to on the job training – the proverbial school of hard knocks. Yet I do not know of one successful artist who succeeded without a good manager.

I pondered this problem for many years as numerous artists asked me to help launch and grow their career. I simply did not have the time to help. My solution was to develop an online training course to teach everything that I know about artist development. I even asked some of my industry friends to share their knowledge and experience for the course.

The result is that, after three years of assembling a video course that would help raise up others to do the work that took me a lifetime to learn, I can offer it to anyone who wants to know how it is done – everything, A to Z, about artist management and development.

This is a massive course covering every aspect of the entertainment business using the most cutting edge technology in education today. It can be used by anyone who wants a career in artist management and can even be used by artists to learn how to manage themselves.

We have already seen artists and industry people use this information to build successful careers. Honestly, an artist who goes through this course doesn’t need a manager until they reach the afore mentioned income level. Even then, they may be able to self-manage or have someone handle day to day operations of management for them without the expense of a traditional manager.

The first step in learning more about this one of a kind course is to go to this link and leave me your email address. If you do that I will send you a copy of my artist management agreement, and then we’ll begin a conversation discussing how you can be an artist manager. You can also use the agreement in any way you see fit. My gift to you for hearing me out.

I’m passionate about seeing more people succeed as artists. That’s why I put so much time and effort into this innovative program. I promise to guard your address and privacy. I also promise you you won’t be sorry you checked this out.

Hope to see you in my course. Let me know if you have any questions.
