without a good in, its gonna take some interning and assisting to get in the door. Go intern at a jingle house and get to know people. Eventually someone will ask to hear something and hopefully you are ready. I got lucky and had a friend that started from the bottom like I previously mentioned, got a great set of connections and shared them with me. I did the same for him and shared some profits as a thank you. My music was also top notch. Been getting calls ever since. It's a great change from the major label rat race. Filter knows what hes talking about as well. good advice. Managers should come when you can no longer maintain your affairs from being too busy with tons of work IMO. If its the other way around you end up being under their boot and they can yank contacts away at will if you don't do what they say.
