Last week I got a chance to reminisce with someone from my past.
She was an A list singer.
Not a one hit wonder, but probably a one album wonder for sure.
Hey, it is what it is and she has made a comfortable living off that album ever since.
When she launched her career, there was a very unique way of doing so that had never been previously done but has been copied many times since. Basically it was go to your buyers.
Go to your audience.
It worked really well for record sales, but has kept this singer basically out of changing rooms since those days.
Because every single day she was forced into one by the person who groomed her from a very early age.
Each day he would tell her she needed to thank him for making her dreams coming true and making her a star.
She knows exactly how many days the tour was and how many times she was forced to thank him and is permanently damaged by what he did to her.
Her parents trusted him and their trust was misplaced.
He still sends her emails reminding her that she owes her career to him and she should never forget it.
