MEMBER PROFILE

Midwest Talent Management, Inc. grew out of the talent agency, Creative Talent Company in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio. After being a talent agent for fifteen years, Betty McCormick Aggas decided that the relationship between talent and representation was the essence of the business of talent management and talent agenting. As a talent manager there is a better opportunity to share the steps of the talent's growth and successes. Sometimes the manager furthers that growth by producing. As a talent agent, it is necessary to deal with a larger group of talent, which means less one on one time. As a talent manager it is attractive to deal with a smaller group of talent where the one on one individual time is pivotal to the talent's career. Talent agents submit, pitch, follow-up, negotiate and book. Therefore they cannot spend as much time with the talent. The manager does a little bit of everything and devotes more time to the details of the talent's career. The talent's team has one person, the talent manager, to coordinate all of the talent's team players: agents, lawyers, publicists and fans. The talent manager compliments the agent with guidance, details, suggestions and follow-up.

Midwest Talent Management. Inc. started from Ohio in 1994 representing four talent. Betty and her husband, Gary, who took over the responsibilities and ownership of Creative Talent Company, would go back and forth from Ohio to LA every three months for almost 5 years! Exhausting as it was, it was an exciting time. Now permanently in LA, Betty is happy to say that she does not want to travel unless it is a vacation! When Betty was in Ohio she had a separate phone line where the local LA phone number was forwarded. The only way that anyone knew Betty was not in LA was when the LA caller was put on hold. "Why didn't you tell me you were leaving LA?" "Ah… How do you know that I am not in LA?" "Cause I heard while I was on hold that the weather report was snow and icy roads tomorrow." "Oh my. Isn't that interesting." Betty did not miss a beat even when she was in Ohio. She made arrangements for the breakdowns to be pulled, addressed and delivered as if she were in LA. The hardest part was the three-hour time difference. When it was 6 pm in LA it was 9pm in Ohio. Was very difficult to go to dinner.

Mark Blake joined Betty McCormick Aggas at Midwest Talent Management. in April of 2001 as an associate manager. Midwest Talent Management will continue to grow as the talent they represent grows. We are all dreammakers. The goal for the immediate future is to have each of the talent managed earning over $150,000 per year. After that is accomplished, a new goal will be made.

You live in the Midwest when...
1. You've never met any celebrities, but the mayor knows your name.
2. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor.
3. You have had to switch from "Heat" to "A/C" on the same day.
4. You end sentences with a preposition: "Where's my coat at?"
5. When asked how your trip was to any exotic place, you say, "It was different."
