It is a few days after Thanksgiving.  I want to remind everyone living in the United States of America that we should be very thankful for what we have.

Please take a moment and reflect upon your blessings.


Fake Friends and Followers. 

Approximately one month ago I was approached by a mother of an Artist asking for assistance.  The mother did not want management for her daughter as she had a previous relationship with a former manager that did not appear to go so well. 

The mother told me her daughter had a great following on social media.  So, I reviewed her social media.  It was what I expected for a young Artist with four or five YouTube Videos and a single until I checked one social media account.  She had one to two thousand

Hard work and dedication. 

Some of us are building from scratch. No inheritance, no connections, no backups. Just blood, sweat and skills.

Thanksgiving was a few days ago. Here are some things that I am thankful for: 

A God of love, forgiveness, mercy, and grace. 

A family that is still together after trials and tribulations. 

A wife that loves me even with all my faults. 

A son that is in the military. 

A son that is still in school. 

Current clients. 

Former clients. 




It never ceases to amaze me the Artists that will tell me that they do not need a website!  A website is your electronic billboard.  Your electronic business cards!  Every piece of material that you have (including social media) should link back to your website!  Your website should contain music, videos, merchandise, upcoming gigs, blog, Electronic Press Kit, etc.
