Whether you have a manager, an agent or both, you still are required to drive your career forward. Your representation isn't responsible for the success or failure of your career. Your talent representative gets a commission between 10%-20% of your bookings so in hind sight they only do 10%-20% of the work. YOU make up the rest. It's important to continue training, networking and seeking out your own work. The fate of your career lies not in the hands of your representation, but in the hands of the man or woman in the mirror.
