pointers on artist management

I receive allot of demos, emails, and text messages from artists who need management. I would decline since I will not be able to fulfill the obligations it will take to fully manage an artist.
I believe there are many out there who would love to learn how to be one …

Here are some tips on being and artists manager:
1. Character is no. 1 “It is not about the manager but about the artist.. (if you’re like me.. its really about God!)” Ask yourself: Will this please God? Will my artists benefit? Am I greedy? Am I thinking long term? There are many character issues that will surface. It’s always better to talk about it and be honest 1st with God, 2nd with the artist and 3rd with yourself. If you are willing to be open and honest with everything .. let’s proceed to no. 2.
2. Pray!! Hey be ready for God’s open doors. It only takes 1 anointed idea or connection to make it to the top. It is best that it comes from God. Every gift from God He adds no trouble into it.
3. You need to be administrative.. (if your not .. you will have a hard time) to some it’s a gift to others it’s a skill to be learned… I’ll go for both. Gift and skill!
4. You need to be a friend to the artist. You are the protector! Be ready to get negative vibes from the producers, the fans and the family. Please don’t be hateful but treat everyone with respect. When in doubt refer to no. 1.

Okay these are only four points, but I believe these are very important. The others points will come as you play things by ear.

Personally I’ve made many big and small mistakes and I know I will still make them, hopefully not the same ones. So do not fear we all got to start. Remember character is most important for you and the artists! Be open and willing to receive correction and mentoring. We all need to deal with our issues. If you are greedy seek help. Etc, etc.

If you still need help feel free to email me or posts. Our country needs real artist managers!

Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction-
There are many who are starting to get attracted to the Law of Attraction. With the top rating multi-million sales of the Secret and the many Self- help seminars like the Landmark Forum. I want to share my experience regarding this.

Here's a quote from...
Abraham: You did not come into this environment to create through action. Instead, your action is meant to be a way in which you enjoy what you have created through thought.
Esther Hicks

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..proverbs 23:7

Ever since I remember I have always wanted a perfect life and I strive for perfection. I looked inside me and tried to change my heart from within.. I even attended self-help seminars and bought so many books. But my longing was deep.. so deep that people, knowledge and philosophies, etc cannot fill..

So I got outside help to fill the gap.. relationships, alcohol and even drugs to dull the deep need for significance and p…

Guam Trip

Guam was like a family reunion for me.. i have loads of cousins and little newphews and nieces who live in guam.. I also have a very good japanese dive instructor who happens to own Papalagi dive shop in guam and a chain of dive shops in tokyo (he was in tokyo when we were in guam.) Anyways the trip was special because of family. Il post family pictures as soon as i get copies.

The metro pacific group (producers of the show) treated us like family too!! It was cute to see the group which is composed of married men, be the leaders of the whole project. The wives really supported thier husbands. Truly, the show was a sucess because there was a flow of authority and unity within the group.

Here are some pictures..

Lunch at the Marriot with Sitti, Kitchie and Mrs. Margie Nadal Kitchie's mommy :)
