I cant contain this news any longer!!! ..Im going in on a 4-way partnership with my friend Chris, as promoting and "selling" new bands to major record labels! He used to do this wehn he lived in Houston, Texas. He has been here about 3 years now and is just starting to get back into the business soooo..... We all made this decision just in the past couple days. We are hoping to have our first sell to Columbia Records within 3 months and at the end of the sale, each of us will have netted a take home pay of $10,000!!!!!!!!! When a band is sold to a record lable it seems right now the going price is about $100,000. In order to make the business grow we will split the earnings at a 60/40, 60% will go back into the business and 40% goes to us 4. Its crazy I tell ya, things are moving fast and its pretty danged exciting! One of the bands we will be meeting with on Saturday. Chris is having a get together and invited them, I think they will be one of our BIG sellers! We also have an agreement with MTV to produce some videos of these new bands, and Chris has already signed a contract with 6 Flags Darien Lake to supply the opening acts for some major names! I believe I already told you that...yah...we are gonna provide an opening act for Korn... Now as soon as the bands are coming to us regularlyand we are profiting on a consistant basis then we will add more people to the payroll. I plan on taking on an assistant AND an apprentice. Both will be in charge of post processing any shots that I do. The assistant of course will have more say in the final product. The apprentice, well this will be a perfect opportunity for an amatuer to become a pro and if I get as big as I am hoping...then this person will be able to one day say that they studied under me! LOL Im moving on up and faster than I could have ever imagined! I was talking to my mom yesterday on the phone and one of the first things she said was...."You dad would be so proud of you!" I almost started crying. I wish he were alive so I can share this with him!
