Managers often wear many hats as they guide, supervise, and develop their client's careers. Common services include representing and advising in business dealings or negotiations, organizing meetings, assisting with publicity matters, managing finances, and overseeing personal matters. Managers, like agents, are paid a commission for their services. However, it is important to note that managers are not licensed or regulated, and they can't legally obtain work opportunities for their clients.
The inherently personal services that a manager undertakes means that having a detailed agreement is essential to any manager-client arrangement. Many things can go wrong in a management relationship, but a well-drafted agreement can limit frustrations by detailing in writing the exact scope of the manager's duties.
