Movie, Music and TV agents can be a valuable resource, but keep in mind, they just are that – a resource. Who would you rather have in control of your career: a person with a 10% interest or a person with a 90% interest. I hope the answer is a person with a 90% interest, which is you. Your agent makes money by having many clients and making a little money from a lot of people. You make money only if you make money.
