Succeeding in showbiz requires a harmonious relationship between a competent manager and an obedient talent. For example, certain managers and their unhappy talents have had their rifts highly publicized. Most of these cases have resulted in a formal or a silent ban of talents among the stations. Consequently, some talents who have managed to cut cleanly from their managers still suffered the fate of a dwindling career. By contrast, some talents who, despite feuding with their managers, were able to salvage and be reinvented into topnotch stars. Hence, managers are essential if a talent wants to succeed in the business, and talents are expected to trust and to follow their managers. Managers are believed to know what is best for these actors.
Sometime ago, the talents of a network had a show out of town. The talents, their managers, and staff comprised the entourage for the show that had mixed reviews. Nonetheless, the fans were happy to see the talents sing and dance onstage and to travel that far to see them.
During the middle of the night, when everyone was catching up on sleep, someone (SO) had to go to the room of one of the managers (OM) to get something. OM is a low-key manager who handles the careers of several stars that have crossed networks or have remained loyal to one. OM, of course, has as many haters as admirers. The faint light in the room allowed SO to notice that OM suddenly pulled up the sheets and only had his face exposed.
As the room was cold, SO did not really make much of what OM did until SO realized that OM was not alone as there was some movement under the sheets. Upon realizing that SO might have disturbed an encounter between OM and another person, SO got what he needed and left.
After leaving the room, SO started to think who was with OM. Could it have been talent 1 (T1), who has long been rumored to be the favorite of OM? Could it be talent 2 (T2) who has yet to have any negative publicity connected to his name? While T1 could have been the usual suspect, SO realized it was T2 who was with OM that night, and giving his manager the pleasure of his life.
To succeed in business, to reach the top, an individual must know all it is possible to know about that business. - J. Paul Getty
