Show Me The Money
A Short Sharp Shock
In a previous life, I worked with a company that built websites for creative people. One of the messages asked …
‘Why spend time building websites, when that takes time away from doing what you love - and get paid for?
Not a bad question. I feel the same way about jobs.

If you work in a company in any capacity, part of your job is ‘what’s next, where next, income, etc …’
It’s distracting at best.
How much more efficient could you be, how much more time could you have … if you knew you had a business partner who had your back?
Not only that - but don’t you always feel better if someone else is negotiating on your behalf?
The thing is that if you are an actor, director, athlete, writer … <enter your creative job title of choice>, you already have that.
So here’s the real question
If personal agents are good for people, why aren’t they more widely used in other industries?
If they are not good for people, why do people in the sports and entertainment industries continue with the model?
