Based in New York, Steven C. Beer serves as partner at Franklin Weinrib Rudell & Vassallo. A distinguished media and entertainment attorney, Steven C. Beer is the author of Your Child’s Career in Music and Entertainment: The Prudent Parent’s Guide.
Your Child’s Career in Music and Entertainment: The Prudent Parent’s Guide was written to address the challenges parents face when they seek to transition their children’s talents from hobbies to full-time careers. The book guides parents through issues such as consulting the right professionals, choosing between an agent and a manager, preparing for auditions, proper managing of finances, statutory protections for children, and creating balance for the entire family.
A child’s happiness and health are two of the most important issues while transitioning to a full-time career in entertainment. The book brings to light the experiences of some of today’s top stars together with their parents in an effort to teach upcoming entertainers on how to balance their schoolwork with their career, how to avoid the bad habits associated with celebrity life, how to handle rejection, and how to stay healthy while managing their busy schedule.
