(http://www.sixshooterrecords.com)Whether they call themselves "self-managed" or not, every artist begins this way. But once the momentum picks up, shows start getting a little bigger and more frequent, and fans, media, and industry start paying attention, how does a smart artist continue to successfully and efficiently manage their career? What skills do they need to have, and how can they ensure they're maximizing their opportunities without losing control of things? In this webinar, we'll discuss how self-managed artists can do it well, and also when is the right time to hire a manager. And if you're going to hire your first manager, who and what should you be looking for?
