What is an LLC?
LLC is short for Limited Liability Company. It is a stand-alone entity which is treated as separate from the person or people that own and operate it, thereby protecting them from personal liability.
It is a common practice in the entertainment industry for artists to hire the services of agents. They help actors, musicians, and others associated with the industry connect with potential resources and get work on a regular basis. Agents get a percentage of the earnings for every project their client gets. It is an established arrangement that works to the mutual benefit of all concerned.
Artists with a busy schedule are not in a position to handle various aspects of their business. They need support for managing bookings, making travel arrangements, handling social media accounts, marketing their work, promoting their shows, etc. They need a competent and experienced manager to oversee the ancillary areas of their business so that they can focus on delivering better performances.
As an artist, you can get a huge load off your back by hiring a manager who can manage everything else while you use your time to hone your skills. A manager is also expected to get you more business than what you have now.
