An Honest Agent …

A friend of mine is a sports agent for some low to mid level talent in the National Hockey League.  I once asked him what exactly it was that he did.

He said to me:

“I do the same thing all agents do.  My job is simple.  First, I promote all the great things my client can bring to the table.  Second, I downplay all his weaknesses.  Lastly, and this is the most important thing of all, I significantly increase the cost to sign my client and profit from it.”

Hey, at least the guy is honest.

    Works the same way in the publishing business too.
