Q: You have worked with a plethora of artists, entertainers and high-profile entertainment companies. What are the most important ‘stand-outs’ you learned from your clients over the years, and how have you used those lessons in your own work life?
CC: I have learned so much about the business of talent after spending decades working with clients, as well as CEOs. I’ve learned that true talent is a rare commodity, but when you encounter someone with the “it” factor who possesses something very special, it has to be cultivated.
Q: In your book Dirty Lil Secrets: Nobody Wants to Tell You About the Entertainment Industry, you include real-life stories, which made me wonder if there is one you left out but wished you had included?
CC: I feel so blessed to be always in the midst of a half a dozen “real-life” stories with artists, entertainers and companies who are still writing their career life story. I am fortunate to still be working in the entertainment business that has given me so much. I’ve learned from each experience in this business that has strengthen me in all areas of my life. What I love about this business is the ability to work with passionate individuals who want to allow their talents to inspire and change the world.
Q: Let’s change gears here for a minute and add a little fun to our conversation. If you could choose to have any superpower what would it be and why?
CC: I wish that I could turn back the hands of time and understood these 10 Dirty Lil Secrets. I would have avoided many pitfalls and my attendance at the School of Hard Knocks.
