While it is recommended that a startup manager not be picky about who he chooses first, always remember that belief in your clients` art is one of the most important bases for success, no matter how successful you are.

Sunset Clauses: The “Sunset” clause is so named because it provides that the manager continues to collect a commission on the artist`s income, even after the expiry of the life. The reason a manager wants this clause is that he wants to focus on something about his investment in the artist`s career – sometimes it takes years for an artist to “break” but they “break” because of the manager`s hard work in the early years (or, that`s the argument, anyway). Generally speaking, during sunset, the volume of activities ordered will be more limited than the duration of sunset, and the commission rate will decrease slightly less over the years. It can sometimes be an option at the front or back-end to extend the mandate when the manager reaches certain thresholds for the artist. For example, an initial period of 4 years with an option for an additional 2 years may be exerciseable if the manager provides the artist with a large recording contract worth at least 50k and the artist generates gross income of at least 400k during the initial 4-year period. There may be an oral or written agreement between the artist and the manager. They may have decided verbally that the manager will help the artist and get 10% in return.
