The marketing adventure begins.

Today I’m out looking for someone who is a business manager. I’m kinda’ nervous… I don’t want to end up with some asshole who’s just out to make a buck by preying on artists. I’m looking for someone who takes a commission, not a flat fee. I figure that if the person takes commission then (a) they’ll be motivated to sell my work and (b) they’ll believe in the value of my work to begin with. I don’t know if anyone out there has any experiences with this sort of thing, but I’d love to hear them.

Part of me is screaming that I should be able to do all that business stuff and marketing on my own, but the past couple of years clearly demonstrates otherwise. Maybe if I just got up off my ass more, that obnoxious voice says, but when I do I seem to always hit the bad sales. At what point am I just admitting my weaknesses and getting the help I need vs. just being lazy? Because by getting some sort of manager, I feel like I’m just being lazy. Totally white male culture there… Or at the very least family culture. Ergh.
