In a recent note, I recommended that rising professionals and entertainers hire a professional team to improve his/ her product(s) or service, i.e. a rap-artist hires a stylist & publicist.
A mentoring colleague of mine recommended I get a publicist, but it's so hard finding good help these days. Thank God I have a manager, though. I recently recieved an incredible opportunity (which I'll keep under wraps for now), but the details were vague.
Thanks to her, I was able to reconsider and renegotiate the fine-print details before agreeing to the proposal. Hence, I maintain: Invest your money where it counts, in talented, proven professionals you trust.
That is all.
