    just curious after reading the 'manager' thread...

    we're currently negotiating a possible management deal and I'm wondering if anyone here has done so. I'd like to compare some notes if you don't mind sharing. Trying to get an idea as to some of the average contractual figures.

    I've never negotiated a management deal, but as far as I know 15% is the standard.

    Don't give it up front either. Make them work for their money, just as you do.

    thanks TJ;
    trying to get some exposure without getting reamed in the process- tricky...

    I've downloaded a few sample contracts, it's helping a little.
