Re: Management, I need a scout, a visionary, to point the way. I'm a practicing animist, a man of faith, an eco-savvy media man with a number of odd and interesting connections and a solid ability to communicate concepts across cultures. But I have no idea how to market that without compromising my integrity. A person with a sense of direction that shows me how to 'do this and it will feed your family', that's what I'm looking for. In the parlance of "The Tipping Point", I'm a Maven looking for the right Salesperson and Connector to get the party started. :)

Ka-Mander, I love what you wrote. Couldn't agree more. You know, in Hebrew - which is a mystical language - based upon three letter roots. The meaning of the words change dependent upon the vowels added. Letters are the physical manifestation, vowels the spirit which molds them and brings them to life.

1) Amen (it's a Hebrew word). Isn't it so, that when we say "Amen", it means, so be it... we are bringing it to life. The "A" represents the physical manifestation - alpha and omega, the "M" is the mother sound, meaning from the inside out, "N" brings the manifestation forward.

If you want to go deeper into the spiritual meaning or essence of the word:

AMEN = Everything in existence, or physical creation, comes from the inside - out, through our intention and speaking it. That is why we say - AMEN, after praying for something... to speak it into existence.

2) Omahn - Same three root letters A-M-N, wIth the vowel "Vav" added after the "A" - transforms the meaning into "Artist". "Vav" is the sixth letter of the Hebrew alpha-bet. It means "And".

Let's look a little deeper: Who is an artist? The one who creates and the creation comes from the inside out:

A- Physical Creation
V - And
M- It Comes from the Inside Out
N - Into physical manifestation

My understanding is that we artists are priests and priestesses - instruments of the Divine. Our work is to be in service to it, serving as instruments of creativity.

A conscious manager - does the same thing - their role is also as an instrument of the Divine - allowing for the Physical Manifestation of their creative ability to be expressed from the inside - out (of their expresssion, and of the inner workings of the business side of art), and expressed outwardly into the world (e.g. the project).

There is a great need for conscious talent management in LA and, of course, in other parts of the world> I have SO many friends who are amazing performers on the cutting edge right now. This wave is slowly rising from the underground, and we need people who have been operating in the manstream to take a look at what's happening on the cutting edge. In my mind, it is the exression of the arts which drives a culture forward, so it's these kind of conscious creatives who will drive a wedge in the dominant paradigm, and take us to a new level of thinking thru expression.

A great manager for me - would be one who would handle all the aspects of booking events, and marketing it. I love the aspect of collaboration, and would want to have input, where, when, with whom, etc... yet the follow through, follow up, and closing terms, conditions etc... as well as setting up the event would free me to do my work, which is the creation, the content, the follow through of the actual program itself. Does this make sense?

Susan, I am interested in speaking to you about your work as an Entertainment Attorney. I believe I met you at a Krishna Das concert at the church on Wilshire Blvd. some years ago. We walked in together. Small world!

Also, I would ask this group: What are your visions of what a great "Manager" would look like for you. What qualities would you want in management support and what needs would you expect to have fulfilled by a Manager? It would be great to riff on this to get a clearer picture of a great support individual or team.

I could certainly use such stewardship at this stage in my career!

Kate, you are just the person to do it! I'd be happy to work with you.

I have had the great pleasure to manage a wonderful music composer over the last year. It has been an incredible experience but need to expand my business in order to go bigger. Just filed an LLC and am putting together a business plan. There is such a need for talent management in this space.
