“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” -Oprah Winfrey
As long I can remember, I have always been passionate about a diverse arts community and being able to empower and connect people to opportunities that advance and strengthen their careers.
Like many in March 2020, my life changed, and I found myself out of my talent management job of 8+ years due to the economic effects of the coronavirus. The fact many of my clients wanted to continue working with me when I lost my job, solidified that I needed to keep moving forward in the right direction. Out of this realization, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Out of this struggle and pain, CHI Talent Management, LLC was born.
After years of working on the business side of the industry, I decided to create a management company that empowers and enables my diverse roster to dream and think big. The same way I take a chance on my clients, I am asking you to take a chance on me and CHI Talent Management.
WHAT I DO?
My work bridges the gap between managing the talent of the individual and empowering them to achieve their personal and professional goals:
--Focus on advising and counseling each artist with an eye to making the artist as marketable and attractive to talent buyers as possible
--Manage the artist’s professional life in a way that allows the artist to focus on creative productivity.
--Advise, counsel, direct, and coordinate the development of the artist’s career.
--Serve as a spokesperson for the artists.
In short, I allow artists to thrive and create, while I manage their business matters.
WHAT IS MY EXPENSE BUDGET?
I am looking to raise at least $30,000 to go towards yearly business expenses.
