My first major project for a band called The Summer Set was to help launch its new Half Moon Kids website and Fall 2014 clothing line. After endless email threads, long days and last minute changes, we launched. Then the site crashed within a minute. (not so)Minor setback. But! The kids were still thrilled; fueled by their love of the band and the Half Moon Kids community.
And then it suddenly hit me.
I’m here to make dreams come true. That’s what I’ve always wanted to do. My description for what my position as an assistant to artist managers can be quite lengthy. It consists of a variety of important small and big tasks, but generally speaking, I can summarize my position in one sentence: I help handle the nuts and bolts for an artist’s business so they can concentrate on their craft, and I put smiles on kids faces across the globe. Rad learning experience.
I accept the successes. I accept the challenges. I will learn from the mistakes.
