This business is mostly all about hype but you have to be careful not to be come a victim of it. I've met a lot of so called managers in this game and they all promise to make you famous and give you this and that. This is a diversionary tactic to keep you from seeing what's right in front of you which is usually nothing but if they can keep you gazing into the stars you miss the truth. You have to learn to pay attention. Never let greed, ego or the pursuit of fame drive your decision making process. The easiest way to determine if someone is real is to look at their track record. If a guy is making you a lot of promises, check to see how many other people he's done it for and what was their outcome. I mean how can a guy promise you fame and riches and he is just scrapping by himself. Truth be told, in most cases if he was REALLY on the level it wouldn't be so easy for you access him let alone having him pursue you with promises of gold and fame. It's really just common sense. If it sounds to good to be true well . . . This is really important for child artists and their parents to remember because they are one of the most gullible groups in this business. Even though there are endless sources of information out there, they just want to believe the lie. I've known and continue to know people that refuse to face the truth, instead they are throwing good money after bad chasing lies and basically destroying any chance their child would have at a successful career. Nothing ever comes without hard work and paying your dues, so don't ever think that you can take a short cut. Study your craft and this business and never make emotional decisions based on the hype sell. Just deal with the facts and stick with your bottom line. Enjoy the journey.
