New Motivation

Yesterday while Coco Puff and I were on our way to church this new motivation came to me. I have really no clue where it came from. I'm still wondering why this came to me at all.

It was like out of nowhere I felt like I should become a Personal Manager of some sorts.

How do I begin? What resources do I need? Who should I speak with? What resources should I gather? Do I have the creativity needed to follow this? What should be the target group that I manage??
Coco Puff has no idea where this all came from but he is behind me 100%.
We drove to Barnes & Noble to find some literature to educate myself and give me the philosophy behind this and I found an awesome book.

Artist Managment For the Music Business by Paul Allen.
I started reading this book and I'm taking lots of notes.
The book discusses how there are many ways to acquire knowledge as a business manager. Earning a degree in business is very useful, especially one that emphasizes marketing, brand management, and salesmanship.
I'm not going to do this.
Aside from the classroom , an especially effective way to acquire knowledge is to work for an artist management firm.
I can do this!
I went on a navigation binge last night and found so many things, joined so many sites, and emailed so many people.
To my surprise I've been requested to come in and interview at a management company. They are looking for Agent Assistants, Music Enthusiasts, Music Writers, etc.
I'm so freaking excited right now!

I went for the interview on July 20, 2009 as stated above. The interview was with a small management company called Real Artist Management and I got the internship as an assistant manager. I'm really excited. They currently manage two bands, Swati and Brother Joscephus. They are both really good bands. If you click on my music player and go to track 2 you will hear my favorite song by Swati. If you want to hear more of their music, click on their names to check out their sites.

Personal Manager, huh!! Who would have thought!! The first step to put your best foot forward is to pray about it and then see what happens from there. All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord....

Alot of what you say sounds like it came from the teachings of my pastor. Have you ever heard of Rev. Dr. AR Benard?

QueenBee
I sure love him and I'm praying that this experience is positive.
