Instead he has this D list shoe he is trying to license. Awful decision making here out of hubris never seen in the parenting world at this level.
He's their agent. The family agent NEVER works out.
I've learned this too from an episode of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
You see, Will thought he was doing cousin Ashley well by being her modeling agent. Thinking that a 10% commission was too much, Will and Carlton lost out on her deal entirely by trying to re-negotiate her contract with no professional experience.
Ashley was very upset to say the least, and only got her modeling job back after she, Will and Carlton walked on the catwalk for a fashion show as the agency were short of male models.
This performance did not please Uncle Phil, as he was going to run for Judicial Office and was at the fashion show having dinner with a the Judge whom he would succeed.
Aunt Viv was unaware that Uncle Phil was going to make this political career decision official, and they separated because they did not discuss it and he was putting his career and politics ahead of her and the family.
All in all, don't let a family member be an agent because it could cost you your job and your parents could potentially divorce.
This episode was on last night and I needed some time to kill before 5pm so those who read got the synopsis.
Have a good weekend Covers Brothers.
