Many people outside the entertainment industry cannot fully comprehend the passion of those who are inside. Those insides truly show great dedication to their job and also to the people they work with. Not only stars but also and incomparably also those that help them shine bright. Sometimes, these people even make a lot of sacrifices for others’ sake. The keyword is “sacrifice”. And now, this sounds like we’re talking about celebrity managers.
In a celebrity management company, celebrities are not the only people. In reality, there are fewer celebs than non-celebs. Most are individuals working behind the scenes. Among the many staff and crew surrounding icons, celebrity managers accompany them and stay with them most of the time. It’s easier said than done. Basically, they do everything for their dear artists. They also know probably almost everything about them too. On and off cam, wherever celebs are, their managers take care of them.
Some artists and their managers could be of the same age, but generally, celebrity managers are like older siblings or second parents to them. They are always beside them, assisting, providing, supervising, protecting, speaking on behalf of them and many more! Celebrity managers work hard! That’s for sure.
This makes others ask, “What makes the job of celebrity managers fulfilling?” Find the answers below.
1 – Seeing their celebrities receive lots of love
Fans love their favorite artists so much, and their being fans is the first proof of that. They do so many things to express their love to celebs. They send them gifts, attend their live events, press hearts on their online posts. More than that, they protect them from bashers and haters online. True fans are always there to cheer for their dear celebrities, and they promise to stay forever.
The existence of fans is probably one of the things that celebrity managers love. That’s because they are seeing their celebrities receive lots of love, and that is exactly one of their main goals as managers. They do not want their artists to be hated but to be adored. Another time is when non fans recognize the talents or the beauty of their celebs. That means it’s another chance to gain new fans.
Knowing how these make their “children” feel fulfilled, celebrity managers feel fulfilled too.
2 – Seeing their celebrities succeed in their careers
Handling stars or soon-to-be icons, celebrity managers dream as their artists dream. Like parents who support their kids, celebrity managers support their artists.
They are at work in organizing all the projects that their artists are offered or apply for. Rookie actors and actresses audition for roles in dramas. Their celebrity managers help them find companies where they can audition. Managers arrange all the papers needed, introduce their new artists to people, run here and there to chase after opportunities for their artists. They speak to people in the entertainment industry to find and secure good shots for their celebs.
That’s why when celebrities succeed in their careers, one of the first few people who tears up in joy are their celebrity managers. The success of celebrities is also the success of their managers and all the people rooting for them.
There’s probably no exact word that could describe the fulfilling feeling that celebrity managers get witnessing their artists receive awards, get acknowledged, or succeed in any way they consider a success!
3 – Seeing their celebrities grow
Celebrity managers are with their artists from the moments these stars were not yet shining to the moments they are the world’s favorites. Years have passed, and managers have seen everything these artists have gone through – both the good and the not-so-good. They have aged, too, as their celebs have aged.
But the best part here, which surely makes celebrity managers feel fulfilled, is when they see their celebrities grow. In what way? First, when they grow in their craft when they become so much better at what they do. And second, when they grow as an individual, when they learn, apply their learning, and become wiser in life.
When these artists were younger, they were mostly reckless, and they cannot go without a manager guiding them. But now, they have grown up so well. Nonetheless, they still need their managers to share every moment with them, and to learn more good things in life with them.
4 – Seeing their celebrities happy and healthy.
Seeing their celebs happy and healthy is a priceless thing for celebrity managers. It may seem like they just do their job because the celebrity management company tells them so, but they really do what they do because for a long time already, they have considered these artists as family.
What hurts artists hurts their managers. What makes them happy makes the other happy. As long as everything’s good, it’s a similar feeling, just like how it’s the same between parents and their kids.
5 – Seeing their celebrities appreciate and acknowledge them
Now, something personal. Something that fans are aware of too. Although celebrity managers probably are not asking for it really, receiving appreciation and acknowledgment from their artists make celebrity managers feel fulfilled.
A simple ‘thank you’ is not simple at all. It’s never small. Imagine being thanked in front of thousands of people. No doubt, that will make you tear up if it’s for you! When celebs love their managers, fans love their fave celebs’ managers too. That’s just so sweet because it means that managers receive gratitude from hundreds or thousands of people too! Definitely, that’s heartwarming.
ENJOY AND STAY SAFE
Celebrity managers are people stars trust so much because they are not simply work colleagues; they feel like each other’s extended family members. Putting their artist first is their priority, and their number one concern in their job is the welfare, safety, image, health, and just everything significant about their artist.
You may say that they are living their life for other people, and that’s true in many ways. With all the sacrifices they put into the job they love, they themselves definitely know how fulfilling their work is. Truth be told, without celebrity managers, stars are incomplete.
Hats off to all celebrity managers! You are doing a great job!
